Due to new sanctions, Apple will abandon the Chinese flash memory for the iPhone

After the introduction of more stringent restrictions on exports from the US, Apple was forced to refuse to supply Chinese-made flash memory chips. It was assumed that the American corporation would purchase NAND memory from the Chinese supplier YMTC, but now it has been “overboard”.

Due to new sanctions, Apple will abandon the Chinese flash memory for the iPhone

It was assumed that 40% of the NAND memory needed for the iPhone would be purchased from YMTC. However, now the corporation will have to negotiate with Samsung, SK Hynix and other non-China manufacturers.

China’s YMTC was to supply Apple with its 128-layer 3D NAND flash memory for use in the iPhone. At the same time, it was 20% cheaper than analogues. This would allow the tech giant to put additional pressure on other suppliers to cut prices.

It was also assumed that the iPhone with YMTC memory chips would be sold only in the Chinese market, but one source claims that this memory was planned to be used in global versions.

Currently, YMTC chips are not used in any Apple products, but according to Brent Fredberg, chief investment officer of Brandes Investment Partners in San Diego, they are being considered in this capacity in the global market in the future.

As for the Chinese market, there are no restrictions there. That being said, unless the US government relaxes export controls, Apple is likely to rely on other suppliers. However, this can lead to an increase in the cost of smartphones.

One of the pictures was published by Ice Universe insider. He accompanied the picture below with the words: “Where is the crease? Where’s she? Where’s she?”. Indeed, visually the fold is not observed. If so, then Oppo has managed to do what Samsung has been unable to do for four years.

However, the lack of a crease isn’t the only feature of the Find N2 Flip. The device will receive the largest external screen for devices in its class – its diagonal will be 3.26 inches. And in this regard, the Find N2 Flip will outperform both the Moto RAZR 2022 and the Galaxy Z Flip4.

In addition, the Oppo Find N2 Flip will prove to be a powerful smartphone, as the Dimensity 9000 SoC is rumored to be attributed to it. Finally (again, according to rumors), the Oppo Find N2 Flip will not repeat its predecessor’s Chinese exclusive status and will be sold outside of China.
