iPhone 5 A5 processor - 50% of Samsung manufacturing dedicated to it

Looks like iPhone 5 production well on the way. That’s according to sources in South Korea. Samsung factories are working overtime with reports suggesting that Samsung has agreed to “quadruple monthly shipments of [processors] to Apple”. That means 50% of Samsung production capacity is dedicated to pumping out iPhone 5 Apple A5 chips and the firm is also said to be planning a new $3.6bn plant in Austin, Texas to ensure it can ship more mobile processors to Apple. The iPhone 5 A5 chip is said to be similar but not identical to the processors inside the Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy Tab and Samsung Galaxy Player.
