Qualcomm SoCs dominate Android devices over $300, while MediaTek is massively used in more affordable smartphones

Published

It was previously announced that MediaTek led the SoC market for Android smartphones in 2021 with a 46% share, ahead of its competitor Qualcomm, which had a 35% market share in 2021.

Now, Counterpoint Research has released an additional report outlining the price points where Qualcomm, MediaTek, Exynos, HiSilicon, and Unisoc have been successful. Most of MediaTek’s market share growth in 2021 has been in the sub-$299 segment, driven by strong demand for the Dimensity 700, Dimensity 800 and Helio series chipsets. Qualcomm dominated the mid-to-premium flagship market with around 50% market share in all price brackets above $300 except for the $700 to $799 price bracket where Samsung led with a 46% market share.

Counterpoint Research also explains why MediaTek has been able to conquer the budget smartphone market. The reason for these changes in market trends is the global shortage of chips. Since Qualcomm was unable to secure supply of its chips from both TSMC and Samsung, the company instead focused on increasing supply of its Snapdragon 700 and 800 series chipsets, resulting in increased revenue and profitability.

However, since Qualcomm did not offer good value for money in the Snapdragon 400 and 600 series in 2021, phone makers have decided to switch to MediaTek. In 2021, MediaTek succeeded in launching powerful and affordable 5G chipsets in the market with Dimensity 700 to 1200 series chipsets. With the release of Dimensity 8000 and 9000 series chipsets in 2022, MediaTek is expected to be able to capture the premium Android market share.

Apart from the Samsung Galaxy S21 series equipped with Exynos, most of Samsung’s A, M and F series smartphones were not equipped with Exynos. In the $100 to $200 segment, Exynos’ share dropped from 17% to 7%, and in the $300 to $500 segment, it dropped from 13% in 2020 to 6% in 2021.

Unisoc posted impressive growth in the sub-$200 category. In 2020, Unisoc chipsets were only used in phones under $100. However, in 2021, Realme, Motorola, and Samsung released phones with the Tiger series SoC, citing the higher performance of the chipsets compared to similarly priced competitors in the market.

Apple took over half of the North American smartphone market

Canalys analysts report that shipments of smartphones in North America in the first quarter increased by 3.7%, to 39 million units.

Apple took over half of the North American smartphone market, and Google shows growth at times

The undisputed leader is Apple, which increased sales by 19%, taking 51% of the market with 19.9 million smartphones sold. Samsung increased sales by only 1%, to 10.5 million, taking 27% of the market. Motorola closes the top three with a growth of 56%, a share of 10% and 4 million smartphones sold.

Fourth place goes to TCL, which sells Alcatel-branded smartphones. The company’s sales fell 21% to 1.4 million smartphones. And, apparently, in the near future it will shift to fifth place, as Google is growing at an incredible pace.

The search giant’s smartphone sales are up 380% (or more, but more on that below)! As a result, the company now occupies 3% of the market, having sold 1.2 million smartphones in the quarter. Still, despite a number of data, sales of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are clearly very good by the standards of Google itself.

All other brands in North America account for only 15% of the market, and sales of all these companies in total collapsed by 64%, to 2.1 million units.

Separately, it is worth noting that in some points the data in the table looks strange. In particular, Google’s growth from 0.2 million to 1.2 million smartphones is clearly over 380%.

iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max became the best-selling phones in the world

iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max became the best selling phones

Analyst Francisco Geronimo of IDC reports that Apple’s iPhone 13 was the world’s best-selling smartphone in the first quarter of this year despite major supply issues.

IDC does not disclose the total number of devices sold, as well as the market share of phones. The company recalls that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 were the top-selling phones of 2021 and 2020, respectively, so the iPhone 13 was expected to perform similarly. The iPhone 13 retails for $800 in the US, offering an Apple A15 Bionic SoC, a dual camera setup, a 6.1-inch notched display, and iOS 15.

iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max became the best-selling phones in the world

The 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max took second place in the first quarter of 2022, indicating that people are more than willing to pay more for a bigger screen, better camera, and longer battery life.

The 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro took a respectable fourth place, while the tiny 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini failed to make the top five. The latter further explains the rumors about Apple’s decision to phase out the iPhone mini. Combined, the iPhone 13 family accounts for 84% of total iPhone revenue in the first three months of 2022. The rest of the revenue comes from the iPhone SE (2022) and older iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 models. Analysts believe that the iPhone 14 could be even more successful.

Two 6.1-inch iPhones from Apple made the top five last quarter. But perhaps more important is the fact that the 6.7-inch Apple Pro model is outselling the 6.1-inch version. So the next generation 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max could be an extremely profitable model for Apple. It will offer everything consumers love about Apple’s regular bestseller, but in a larger form factor that will be much more affordable than the Pro line.

The entry-level Samsung Galaxy A12 ranked third in the first quarter, while the mid-range Galaxy A32 ranked fifth.
