AppleInsider (who still seems to be bitter from Samsung’s alleged copying of Apple products) reckons that Nokia along with Apple are going to be reducing dependence on Samsung by dropping them as a supplier.

Apparently, by using Samsung as a supplier, you tend to get your products ripped off.

“The ‘firewall’ between component sales and smartphones [at Samsung],” individual familiar with Nokia’s component orders from Samsung states, is “about as sturdy as a pile of kimchi.”

The individual stated that Samsung has “a record of getting orders for next-gen components, then canceling the orders. And then they show up in a Samsung phone. When you see a Samsung ‘bendy’ OLED phone as you surely will, you are looking at something that was stolen from Nokia.

Now, who is this source and where will Nokia and Apple turn to instead of Samsung?

Cheers jiipee for the tip!
