Samsung plant in the US “revived”: the production of microcircuits is almost back to the previous level

Samsung Electronics said chip production at its Austin, Texas, US plant has returned to near-previous levels.

The South Korean tech giant and other chipmakers with manufacturing facilities in the region were forced to halt operations due to anomalous frost that hit the area last month. In fact, they took away electricity from the enterprises in order to give it to people. This has greatly impacted the global contract chip manufacturing industry, which is currently struggling with serious shortages.

At the same time, against the backdrop of the pandemic, there is a surge in demand for electronics, while now component manufacturers simply cannot process all orders. The component shortage has been fueled by the launch of new game consoles, 5G-enabled smartphones, rising demand for TVs and home theaters, and high-tech electric vehicles. The semiconductor shortage hit the auto industry hard, with some companies having to shut down production altogether.

Samsung’s Austin plant produces about 65% of Qualcomm and Samsung’s SoCs, but experts believe downtime will not have much impact on smartphone production in the second quarter of this year.

Insiders have repeatedly noted that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 in terms of design is not much different from the current generation model. They don’t expect a revolution in terms of technical parameters either – the main innovation will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC, but the camera sensors, apparently, will remain 12-megapixel. However, it is expected that the battery capacity will increase to 3700 mAh.

Roland Quandt is a well-known informant. Previously, he completely declassified the GoPro 9 Black and GoPro 10 Black action cameras before their announcement, and also named their exact cost.
