Apple iPad 3 and iPhone 5 to host quad-core A6 processor?

The repeatedly rumoured Apple iPad 3 and Apple iPhone 5 look set to play host to a Samsung produced, Apple designed quad-core A6 processor, new reports have suggested

Despite the ongoing legal battles between the two companies over repeated patent infringements Samsung looks set to continue its role as a component supplier for Apple’s iDevices with the Korean firm reported to be providing the quad-core A6 chips to feature within the iPad 3 and iPhone 5.

Expected to be officially unveiled around March or April the mooted iPad 3 has been repeatedly tipped as boasting a quad-core processor with the latest Samsung supply rumours backing up reports yesterday that the third-generation Apple tablet has already entered production.

“Apple has been in talks with Samsung over shipment of its A6 quad-core mobile processor (AP) chips to be used in the next iPhone,” claimed insider sources have reported just days after the launch of the iPhone 4S.

They added: “It appears that Apple clearly has concluded that Samsung remains a critical business partner.”

Apple iPad 3 Rumours: The story so far

Asides from the Apple designed, Samsung produced A6 quad-core processor the iPad 3 is expected to undergo a dramatic and specs-impressive overhaul from the current second-generation model.

Following in the footsteps of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S the iPad 3 is believed to be inline to benefit from a Retina display of the 9.7-inch variety with improved cameras and an improved battery also set for inclusion.
