According to news on December 24, Counterpoint expects that in the third quarter of 2020, as smartphone sales rebound in the third quarter, MediaTek will become the largest smartphone chipset supplier with a market share of 31%.

Counterpoint pointed out that MediaTek performed strongly in the mobile phone brand price range of US$100 to US$250, and its growth in key regions such as China and India helped it leap to become the largest supplier of smartphone chips.

At the same time, Qualcomm is called the largest supplier of 5G chipsets in the third quarter of 2020. 39% of 5G mobile phones sold worldwide use Qualcomm 5G chips. Data shows that in the third quarter of this year, the demand for 5G smartphones doubled-17% of the smartphones sold in the third quarter of 2020 are 5G smartphones. Counterpoint believes that this growth momentum will continue. It is estimated that one-third of the smartphones shipped worldwide in the fourth quarter of 2020 will support 5G. Qualcomm still has a chance to regain the top position in the fourth quarter of 2020.



However, Qualcomm is still the leader in 5G smart phones and high-end device chips. According to Counterpoint, 39% of all 5G-enabled smartphones sold worldwide use Qualcomm chips. With the popularization of 5G, Qualcomm is likely to regain its No. 1 position in the smartphone chip industry in the fourth quarter of 2020.

And if the Huawei mobile phones with the top two global market shares and the Honor mobile phones after solo flight can choose MediaTek chips in 2021, the future of MediaTek is still very much to look forward to.

However, the first big show at the end of the year will be Xiaomi's upcoming Mi 11, which will use Qualcomm's latest flagship chip 888. The biggest question lies in the price.
