The 10nm Yield Rates to delay Galaxy S8 and more?

The 10nm chip yield rates were unable to keep up with demand in meanwhile, according to a report coming this week. With that status, it could mean that many of the future smartphones will be delayed. It is all based on “industry sources”, and in the line of future smartphones includes the Galaxy S8 as one of the recipients of the delays.

Both of the devices, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are expected to come up with two distinct variants of chips. One of them will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and the other one will have Exynos 8895 SoC. Regardless, both of the processors are base built by a 10nm process and that is the reason why the devices will most likely be affected by its production. The Galaxy S8 is not alone though, the next iPhone is also expected to be build based on a 10nm chip. Also, the devices which come running on MediaTek’s newly-announced Helio X30 SoC, could be also affected by the production.

There are still no specific details, but the sources started to get this rumor firstly when the MediaTek’s Helio X30 was delayed for this year. Also, the same source stated that the Samsung’s Galaxy S8 will be also affected by the same issue. For now, the release date for the device is not sure yet, will it stay the same (March 29) because that date was already confirmed by Samsung officially. However, the main question is, if there is a delay for every device that has the 10nm processor, how long will it be? Also, nearly of 10-percent of the next future smartphones, will feature this 10nm processor, so it is not yet confirmed if we will expect delay for every that kind of smartphones.
