Apple iPhone chip target

Apple will be releasing three iPhones this year which are all expected to come out at the start of the fourth quarter of 2017. These phones will include improvements such as a full-screen display, wireless charging and augmented reality capabilities.

It is reported that the vendors who will be manufacturing the new chipsets for these iPhones will start production in the second quarter and speed up the process in the third quarter. It is reported that iPhone new chips will be over 100 million in number.

Apple is eyeing a target of 220 to 230 million sales in the year of 2017 which include the new iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, iPhone 8 and the previous flagships iPhone7 and iPhone SE. The number is impressive as Samsung has set an internal sales target of only 60 million for both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ combined.

The new iPhones will feature an A11 chip which will be a 10nm chip replacing the 16nm A10 chip meaning it will be faster and more efficient. Samsung has also included a 10nm chip, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 whereas Xiaomi has impressed everyone one with the just released Mi6 that also features Qualcomm’s flagships chipset.
