In early October we reported that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), which is currently using its 20nm process to produce Apple's A8 processors for iPhone 6 devices, was confident that it would continue to land orders for A9 processors, which was contrary to rumors of the day stating the opposite. Even the Samsung executive quoted in other rumors never said that they actually had a signed deal in hand. Implying that it was just marketing lingo to get market analysts to see their stock more favorably. At Samsung's most recent earnings call, officials said that it was producing sample 14-nanometer chips for an unidentified customer. They said that the firm will start mass producing the wafers for the chips either at the end of the year or early 2016. The planted story in the Korean press today is basically insinuating that the "unidentified customer" is Apple. And based on that premise has created an entire rumor report with that as fact. This usually occurs when more positive news surfaces that TSMC is likely to gain future A-Series processor orders from Apple and it's happening again.
