Although it will be a while - about two years, reportedly - before the 10nm chip-churning machinery is set in motion, it's safe to say that successors to the Galaxy S7 and iPhone 6s will have small and power-efficient 10nm chips ticking inside their shells. According to Samsung, the achievement is a major step in the evolution of Internet of Things devices, where size and economy of components are of key importance - especially in the tight constraints of wearable devices.
Of course, 10nm tech will be heading towards DRAM and NAND flash chips as well, enabling more storage on the same area, so we have that to look forward to as well. As Samsung is also becoming a key mobile DDR4 memory supplier for the likes of Apple and LG, the Korean company may find itself a mobile semiconductor kingpin in the near future.
