According to news on April 8, according to supply chain sources, MediaTek’s new generation of 5G smartphone chip Dimensity 2000 based on TSMC’s 5nm process will complete its design (tape out) in the second quarter and start mass production at the end of the third quarter at the earliest.
Shipments are expected to win large orders from many 5G smartphone brand customers in the fourth quarter.
In addition, the industry has also reported that MediaTek has successfully entered the Apple Watch supply chain with 4G modem chips for the first time.
Mass production and shipment will begin in 2022. By then, the performance is expected to be marked by Apple Light, which is equivalent to MediaTek’s follow-up operations are expected to have double happiness.
At present, most of the 5G smartphone market uses the Sub-6 frequency band as the main shipping force. However, with the approach of 2022, the millimeter wave (mmWave) frequency band with faster transmission speeds will gradually emerge.
MediaTek is currently in place in millimeter wave technology. , Is expected to seize the first wave of business opportunities in the 5G millimeter wave market with Dimensity 2000 series chips.
It is understood that the 5G penetration rate continues to grow at a high speed. It is expected that the overall 5G smartphone market will reach the level of about 500 million units in 2021. Compared with 2020,
it can reach a multiple growth. The two major smartphone chip factories such as MediaTek and Qualcomm are all in To attack this market, and the market expects that due to Qualcomm’s limited production capacity, MediaTek’s mobile phone chip shipments in 2021 have the opportunity to once again grab the top spot.
Not only that, MediaTek’s 4G baseband chip shipments are also new gains. The supply chain pointed out that MediaTek’s 4G baseband chip has successfully entered the Apple Watch supply chain and will begin mass production and shipment in 2022.
This is also the first chip MediaTek has entered the Apple market. It is expected to receive more Apple orders in the future. .
According to a report by the research institute Trendforce, the overall smart watch market size in 2020 is about 79.9 million pieces, of which Apple Watch shipments are about 27.7 million pieces,
which account for more than one-third of the market. According to this expectation, Apple’s Apple Watch pull momentum is expected to bring significant revenue growth for MediaTek.
