MediaTek becomes The King of Smartphone chipset vendor in Q3 2020


The King of Q3 2020

The pandemic is causing mayhem in every nook and cranny of the world but one company seem to have benefited from that. It has been reported that MediaTek has now become the top chipset maker in the global smartphone chipset industry by getting the most share from the market.


Well, I was shocked too while hearing that.


In the Q3 of 2020, the market share of MediaTek is holding 31% of global smartphones chipset. It is just slightly higher than Qualcomm by a mere 2%. More good news for MediaTek as this also gives them a 5% year over year growth.


Logan The Tech Guy would like to give a huge kudos to MediaTek and team. This is MediaTek's maiden achievement of becoming the biggest chipset vendor. It is mentioned that MediaTek has raised the bars with its mid-range chipsets and has managed to power 3x more Xiaomi phones compared to 2019.

The 3rd ranking is held by Samsung followed by HUAWEI's HiSilicon, Apple, and UNISOC. It is interesting to see that HiSilicon has also managed to maintain its share despite the trade ban issued by the U.S. Furthermore, a report predicts that there is still a chance for Qualcomm to take the crown back in Q4 despite being pressured by MediaTek and Apple.


Are you impressed with MediaTek's achievement?
