According to reports by Bloomberg, the Taiwanese TSMC is preparing the group to record earnings, due to the release of new models of iPhone in the fourth quarter of 2018.
Recently, TSMC has adjusted its forecast for sales in the third quarter of 2018. The company believes that the market for mobile electronics and crypto-currencies “fell asleep”, and it is unlikely they will be able to earn more than in the previous reporting period. However, in the fourth quarter of 2018, the plant expects a significant increase in revenue.
Optimistic leadership inspires TSMC is scheduled for autumn 2018 presentation of Apple’s smartphone. According to rumors, the Corporation plans to introduce three models of iPhone that will be equipped with 7-nanometer processors A12 produced by the Taiwanese company.
In addition, TSMC engineers began work on a more ambitious project. They are going to create 5-nanometer processor, which may be called the A14. Most likely, this chipset will be equipped with the next generation iPhone. Pilot testing of prototypes allow us to say that smartphones running processors class A14 may appear in the first half of 2020.
Analysts believe that Apple has the potential to grow, so sales of the Corporation from Cupertino and its partners in the fourth quarter of 2018 can show a significant increase. Experts do not exclude that Apple is waiting for the next supercycle, as the number of users of the iPhone models released more than two years ago, has increased compared to previous periods, and therefore a lot of people will probably decide to buy a new smartphone in the near future.
