Qualcomm has only recently introduced its new Snapdragon 888 chipset, which will soon be the heart of several premium smartphones. Representatives of the brands Xiaomi, ZTE, OnePlus, OPPO, and even Motorola should have already expressed interest.
The basic parameters and features of the new chip suggest that from the point of view of the market and end users, it will be a really interesting piece. Therefore, it is quite naturally impatiently waiting for a response from the workshop of direct competition, which is represented by MediaTek.
Strong competition with the high-performance mobile chip segment should bring a real rival for the Snapdragon 888. Unfortunately, any technical details are currently missing, but how informs the GSMAren portal, we will not wait too long.
MediaTek CEO Rick Tsai has revealed that if all goes according to plan, the new top-of-the-line Dimensity processor will be officially introduced during the first quarter of 2021. Specifically, this should happen before the Chinese New Year celebrations, which fall on the calendar. February 12.
As I mentioned, no technical details are known. Recent reports just suggest that MediaTek will use the 6MM manufacturing process of chip maker TSMC, as the capacity of production lines with more advanced 5nm technology is fully utilized in chip production for Apple and Qualcomm.
MediaTek has reason to rejoice, sales are almost at Qualcomm’s level
