However, the technical strength of MediaTek is obviously inferior to that of Qualcomm. Although the high-end chip Tianji 1000 released by MediaTek last year is known as the 5g mobile phone SOC chip with the strongest performance, it actually lags behind the snapdragon 865 (the snapdragon 865 is not a 5g mobile phone SOC chip and does not inherit 5g baseband), One of the reasons is that in order to control the cost of chips, MediaTek did not use the most advanced 7Nm EUV process at that time, and its brand reputation was not as good as that of Qualcomm.
Oppo, vivo and millet have successively adopted Tianji 1000 chips, but the price of these mobile phones with Tianji 1000 chip is lower than one, and the price of the top version of red rice K30 introduced by Tianji 1000 is only RMB 1999, while the mobile phones with high-speed Xiaolong 865 chip are generally sold for more than 3000 yuan.
As MediaTek was unable to compete with Qualcomm, it was later reported that Qualcomm raised the price of mobile phone chips, but Chinese mobile phone companies could only accept it. Under such circumstances, Chinese mobile phone enterprises urgently needed to find new sources of mobile phone chips, so Samsung entered the field of view of Chinese mobile phone enterprises.
However, the high-end chip of Samsungs exo-5 may be slightly weaker than that of Samsungs high-end chip of 1080, which may even be affected by the high-end technology of Samsungs exo-5.
Prior to this, due to the reduction of the proportion of Chinese mobile phone companies in the adoption of Qualcomm chips, the companys performance has declined significantly. According to the results of the second quarter of this year, the companys revenue fell by nearly half year-on-year, and the net profit dropped by more than 60%. If Chinese mobile phone companies increase the adoption ratio of Samsung chips, The market share of Qualcomm in Chinas mobile phone chip market is bound to decline further, so will the performance of Qualcomm.
As Chinese mobile phone companies reduce the purchase quota of American chip companies such as Qualcomm, the performance of American chip companies has declined, and even chip inventory has appeared. Now that Chinese mobile phone companies increase the adoption of Samsung chips, the performance of American chip companies will be further hit.
