Samsung plans to produce 2nd-generation 10nm chips this year

The battle for the top spot in the mobile semiconductor sector is heating up. TMSC is rumored to have the majority of orders from Apple to make the new A10 chip, but that might change if Samsung's plans for the second-generation 10-nanometer process become reality.

Samsung already managed to snatch the production of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 chip from TMSC.
