Samsung is still being relied on for the production of Apple's A7 processor, which is found in the iPhone 5S, but now it looks like the South Korean giant is still required by Apple, but this time for its next-gen A8 chip.

The Korea Economic Daily claims that Samsung will manufacturer between 30-40% of Apple's A8 chips, with TSMC will manufacturer the rest of the A8 chips. Apple did want TSMC to be the only manufacturer, but obviously this won't be happening. There has been challenges associated with the building of 20nm chips, which led Apple to knock on Samsung's door yet again.
