[THE INVESTOR] Samsung Electronics said in its second-quarter conference call on July 28 that it would for the time being focus on rolling out 10-nanometer semiconductors rather than moving onto still-fledgling 7-nanometer chips.

“The 10-nanometer chip production boasts the highest efficiency and is fit for commercialization,” an official from the tech giant said in the conference call held in the morning.

The company added that it is ready to produce a prototype of the 7-nanometer chip, but its mass production will take place later when the production cost reaches an optimal level.
