    Smartphone vendors considering other chip sources due to short supply of Qualcomm Snapdragon S4

    Qualcomm has seen supply of its Snapdragon S4 processors fall short of increasing demand and the situation has pushed international smartphone vendors, including Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, HTC and Sony Mobile Communications, to consider other suppliers, according to Taiwan-based handset supply chain makers.

    The short supply of Snapdragon S4 is because Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company's 28nm foundry capacity is not sufficient and/or the yield rate of the process is not high enough, the sources pointed out.

    In view of the shortage, Nvidia, ST-Ericsson and Intel have been competing for urgent orders for or even adoption of their chip solutions from these vendors, the sources indicated.
