There is a huge stock of NAND and DRAM chips. And yet all these laptops and phones makers are being so stingy on both, and soldering them on the laptop preventing upgrades. No wonder people are not buying up these chips.
Samsung, 128GB of top performing flash is less than $6. Why are you not giving 256GB on all your phones?

If anyone need to store files within 15 GB limit they can use that.
For more storage they can use multiple gmail accounts and increase their cloud storage capacity by not paying anything.
Disadvantages are - 1) Free services = low privacy, 2) Can't store 1 file above 15 GB as it is the limit per account.
First create artificial *shortages*, then use *less demand* excuse to dump unsold chips.

They could've lost in 2019 already if not for the intervention of their master Uncle Sam.

Aierlan, 03 Oct 2023Highly unlikelyYeah, Apple invests more than $50 Billion in Chinese tech sector every year, why would China give up on them? That's short term thinking.
If you want source of this claim , search “Apple 275 China” on Google.
you have to suffer, 03 Oct 2023Exynos is Samsung's property. there will be no exynos made by tsmcWhat i mean is
Samsung better not producing cpu and ask TSMC to manufacture Exynos
Perhaps it's not Exynos team problem.
Perhaps it's Samsung foundry problem

Anonymous, 02 Oct 2023Exynos needs to be cut by 100%, not mere 30-40%.Sumsang's greed is palpable..they cannot stand to see other company being successful, they had to make their own in-house chips.

Anonymous, 02 Oct 2023What? I got the "base" model Flip5 at launch. It came with 512GB storage.
Tell me... more"Tell me any other brand starting at 512GB on their phones? Last I heard, all the rest start at 128GB or even 64GB."
Wait until the China can produce 90% of RAM.
At that time perhaps 1TB will be the minimum for China's flagship

The thing is, every other company in China were scared/under pressure.
They afraid if some western leader sleep with the wrong pillow and in the morning targeted them. So, they all try to diversified, and perhaps not relying on western brand.

👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻 I don't think these statement is true.
If it's true, many Western brand will be hot dearly when usa do stir trouble like xiinjaing, konghong, tiawan, etc.... I think Chinese is not really care about politics and just act more like normal dude.

The moment they'll leave with more than 50% of their production, apple will feel it. Already Huawei is has a huge demand and if they stabilize and increase their chip quality.
Chinese are very patriotic so they will choose local made products
Aierlan, 03 Oct 2023Highly unlikelyIt is possible, but China will not do it suddenly. The attack on western products will be in steps and it will take some time (like 10 years) but China (or you can say chinese govt.) will get rid of western products.
