iPhone 6 to use a TSMC A6 Chip, Unveiled in 2012

We have no idea what the next iPhone will look like and already we have two pieces of info about the iPhone 6… One of them is the fact that the 2012 model will use a Sharp display with an incredible resolution and new technology and now we have news about the handset’s CPU.

Turns out that the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC) firm from Taiwan could win orders for Apple’s A6 CPU. This might also show up on the iPad 3, if we’re to speculate. Samsung will still deliver the Apple A5 chips for the rest of 2011, but is the TSMC deal supposed to be retaliation for the many recent lawsuits between the Cupertino giant the creator of teh Galaxy series?

Should we expect a quad core solution on the sixth gen iPhone?
