That’s Why Android Telephones Are Behind Apple
“Regardless of the recession within the smartphone market, iPhone 14 Sequence gross sales at the moment are getting numbers in keeping with expectations, not that Apple is simply too sturdy, however Android telephones are too weak“, stated Business Insiders.
Insiders within the provide chain final yr predicted the Apple iPhone 14 Sequence’s completely different chip adoption now he additionally confirmed the differentiation technique of the iPhone 15 Sequence.
This yr, he stated, Apple at present has 40 million A17 Bionic chipsets (N3E) for subsequent yr’s (2023) iPhone 15 Sequence processors, and it may be decided that subsequent yr’s iPhone 15 Sequence can even be the one high-end mannequin to change to the brand new processor.
The accuracy of this insider is excessive in some points, reminiscent of being the primary to show Huawei’s sale of Honor, the primary to say that Huawei purchases Qualcomm chips, and so forth, however general it ought to nonetheless be a catch-22 for inner provide chain rumors, particular knowledge proper for reference.
Apple A17 Bionic chipset will probably be mass-produced utilizing TSMC’s newest 3nm iteration of the N3E course of. N3E is an improved model of the N3 course of, with sure enhancements in comparison with the N4 course of at present used within the A16, however most likely not as a lot because the earlier generations.
TSMC PPT reveals that N3E can cut back the facility consumption of N5 nodes by 30-35% or the identical energy consumption to attain a 15%-20% enhance in frequency, the logic circuit half density 1.6X, different elements reminiscent of cache and analog circuitry could also be about 1.1X enhance, however the subsequent N2 than N3E to enhance 10-15%, energy consumption is once more decreased by 25-30%, which is comparatively extra attention-grabbing.
In contrast with the Android camp, Snapdragon 8 Gen2 launching in November, and Snapdragon 8 Gen2 Plus launching, each will probably be manufactured utilizing the present 4nm course of from TSMC. And 3nm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 powered telephones are anticipated in early 2024.
Such a early entry to the superior manufacturing course of and whereas all Apple’s engineers are specializing in optimization of just one chipset and a single iOS model for the entire yr, the ultimate product is way much better than expectations.
On different hand, Android chipset and smartphone producers’ focus is distributed on a whole bunch of various chipsets and corresponding cellular phone fashions, whereas additionally needing consideration on the software program. That’s why Android telephones are behind Apple, when it comes to efficiency and different key experiences.
Again to Apple, this yr Apple extremely differentiated iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Professional fashions, along with the digital camera and show, chips are additionally completely different this time. Based on the studies, Apple will create extra differentiation between iPhone 15 and iPhone Professional fashions.
Along with the differentiation between commonplace and Professional fashions, Apple can be creating differentiation between the iPhone 15 Professional and the iPhone 15 Professional Max. One of many identified diffrent is that iPhone 15 Professional Max will first to hold a 6x Optical Zoom telephoto lens in iPhone’s historical past.
