What is the Problem with MediaTek?

  • In 2021, MediaTek grabbed the highest smartphone market share all across the world. Yes, the symptoms were seen right in December 2020, but as of September 2021 and beyond, MediaTek now has the highest market share in terms of smartphones all across the world. It stands at 43%, with the number increasing exponentially with time. Do you still think that Mediatek has any problems in the market?
  • In the same year, Mediatek became the largest chipset manufacturer for smartphones all across the world. It now stands at 31 percent in terms of market share for the largest chipset vendors, and any guesses for the brand it defeated? Well, you are right. It defeated Qualcomm Snapdragon to attain this position. Problems with Mediatek processor??
  • The year 2021 could be considered a milestone for Mediatek-powered smartphones because the brand made an entry into the higher-mid-range and flagship segment of chipsets in the same year. First, it was the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 5G chipset that was 6nm in size that attracted the audience and made even a brand like OnePlus use Mediatek chipset for the first time in their smartphones.
  • And later, MediaTek overwhelmed the globe with the launch of the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset that was the first-ever 4nm chipset and stands as the best smartphone chipset launched to date — even better than Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or Exynos 2200 chipset which was launched later.
  • Well, the world of smart chipsets does not merely end in smartphones, and this year, MediaTek engraved its roots deeper into the market with some serious innovations like MediaTek Filogic Wi-Fi 6 chipsets for different devices and MediaTek Pentonic series chipsets for 4K and 8K TVs. This is something really good and would bless the devices that would get launched in the future.
