NAND flash memory shortage to ease in September?

DigiTimes heard the NAND flash shortage is expected to ease in September:
Although earlier predictions suggested the blackout and subsequent production stoppage at Samsung Electronics could lead to NAND flash supply falling as much as 20% below demand, recent estimates suggest the shortages are already starting to slow prompting sources at downstream makers to narrow the predicted gap in supply to just 3-4% in September.

Unless Apple places more orders, new production capacity and processes which are set to appear in October could mean that NAND flash supply might even surpass demand, noted the sources.
