Apart from Huawei and Samsung that have their own independent chipset foundries, all other mobile phone manufacturers rely mostly on Qualcomm and MediaTek for their chip supplies. Before the 5G era, MediaTek was experiencing some difficulties but since 5G started gaining traction, the Taiwanese fabless chip maker has experienced a rebound.
Between April and now, some of the new smartphones packing a MediaTek SoC includes the OPPO A92s, iQOO Z1, Huawei Enjoy 20 Pro, ZTE AXON 11 SE, Redmi 10X series and many several others. The majority of the models have equipped with a Dimensity series 5G chips.
According to latest media reports, MediaTek will launch a new generation of 5G flagship mobile platform under the Dimensity series. The flagship processor will be unveiled in the second quarter of next year. The flagship chipset will reportedly be called Dimensity 2000, taking a cue from the Dimensity 1000 series. However, it will be built on a 5nm process, unlike the Dimensity 1000 series which utilised a 7nm silicon. There will also be a significant improvement in its performance.
At present, MediaTek has successively launched Dimensity 1000 series, Dimensity 800 and 700 series processors, occupying a key position in mid-to-high-end 5G mobile phones market. Just a few days back, the Dimensity 720 chipset was announced. Further, the company is rumoured to be working on the Dimensity 600 series as well as a Dimensity 400 series targeted at entry-level 5G smartphones, enabling cheap 5G phones.
