Samsung to use SK Hynix memory for its smartphones/tablets?

X-bit Labs reports Samsung is considering to use memory chips from rival SK Hynix in its smartphones and tablets. The move will enable Samsung to step up production of its popular Galaxy devices, while also limiting the supply of chips to Apple.
Samsung Electronics is mulling usage of memory chips made by its arch-rival SK Hynix in order to boost output of its smartphones. While the move will improve output of Samsung’s handsets, it may limit supply of chips to Apple, which currently relies on supply of mobile dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips from SK Hynix.

As Samsung is boosting the output of its own brand smartphones and media tablets, which utilize LPDDR memory chips with reduced power consumption, it cannot satisfy its own demand for such chips using its own capacities, according to Reuters news-agency which cites J.K. Shin, head of Samsung's mobile business unit. As a result, it recently entered negotiations with SK Hynix over supply of LPDDR2 and LPDDR3-class DRAMs.
