No one expected such good yields
We found out one rather interesting story at the Mobile World Congress and it sheds more light on Samsung's decision to use Exynos SoCs for most markets instead of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810.
A magazine claims that Samsung’s leapfrog over TSMC to become the 14nm provider of choice is as a direct result of corporate spying.
What a difference a percentage point makes
The Tame Apple Press had a Nintendo in its trousers when Gartner released figures showing Apple sold the most number of smartphones globally in the fourth quarter, overtaking Samsung for the first time since 2011.
64-bit, big.LITTLE Cortex-A57 at 2.1GGHz, A53 at 1.5GHz

With custom 64-bit CPU core
While some of the first devices based on the Snapdragon 810 are about to hit the global market, Qualcomm has decided to unveil some the first details regarding its next big thing at Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona, the Snapdragon 820 SoC.

Credit cards, debit cards, NFC, MST
Samsung has finally introduced the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones that will bring Samsung Pay mobile payments to America and Korea this summer.
Qualcomm in trouble
Recently Samsung announced that serial production of its new 14nm SoC has already commenced. The new part is going to end up in Samsung Galaxy S6 and a few other devices.
Eight cores of terror
Samsung has announced an updated version of its Exynos 7 Octa processor. Last year it announced a 64-bit, ARMv8 processor based on a 20nm design, but these new chips will be 14nm processors.
