Smartphones based on MediaTek chips became the most popular among buyers in the third quarter of 2020



For a long time, Qualcomm has supplied most of the mobile chips to the market. As a result, smartphones based on Qualcomm processors have consistently held the first place in terms of the number of units sold in the world. However, in the third quarter of this year, the palm passed to the Taiwanese manufacturer MediaTek.

According to the analytical data of the publication Counterpoint, at the end of the third quarter of 2020, about 31% of all smartphones in the world are powered by processors from MediaTek. Compared to the third quarter of 2019, the increase was about 5%. On the other hand, Qualcomm lost two points compared to the same quarter last year, and now only 29% of all smartphones in the world are based on chips from this company.

This year, apart from MediaTek, only Apple managed to increase sales of smartphones, but by only 1%. Sales of smartphones based on HiSilicon processors remained at the level of 2019. At the same time, Samsung’s Exynos chips have become less popular in 2020 – a decline of 4% from last year.

Counterpoint notes that the rise in popularity of MediaTek chips is due to the fact that the company also covers the market for budget smartphones under $ 250, which positively affects sales in China and India. However, Qualcomm is increasing its share in the premium segment of smartphones, in fact being the world leader in this niche.
