Honestly I think when Samsung raised the prices on Apple it has some sort of plan after their contract is up. I doubt they were expecting to get another contract with them and maybe Samsung is better for it. Their mobile department is growing like a wildfire and see no signs of slowing down. Maybe this way instead of building chips for Apple they can focus more on their own products and Nvidia. They may see profits dip in the short term but long term could make them an even better company not hitching their profits to how well Apple does. As already reported Foxconn is hitched to Apple to the tune of 60-70% and so is Apple doesn't so well then foxconn doesn't either.
And who didn't see this coming? Lol
