If successful, deal would make Apple Samsung’s largest customer.


Everyone knows that Apple has a lot of spare change lying around and everyone is wondering what they’re going to do with it. From rumours of social website buy-outs to a more recent ‘Strategic Investment’ worth $3.9 billion with an unnamed company.

This latest bit of information from Engadget could just confirm that recent ‘strategic investment’ rumour. Samsung and Apple are said to be in talks to confirm one mammoth of a deal. A deal that could see Apple buying 7.8 Billion dollars worth of components from the Korean tech Giant.

Components would include displays, applications processors, and NAND flash chips and though this isn’t the first big deal between the two it could render Apple Samsung’s largest single customer.
