48% of Android gadgets in the United States have MediaTek chips, says IDC
MediaTek currently has the greatest piece of the pie of any chipmaker for Android telephones in the United States, taking down Qualcomm, which has long held the title.
MediaTek could have quite recently taken down Qualcomm to guarantee the greatest piece of the pie of any chipmaker for Android telephones in the United States – in any event, as indicated by one examiner bunch.
The news comes from IDC’s quarterly cell phone deals tracker, which reports as of Q4 2021 that MediaTek chips currently represent 51% of all Android telephones in the United States, contrasted with 47% for Qualcomm, as spotted by PCMag. Those numbers are an obvious reversal from the past quarter, where MediaTek had a 41 percent piece of the pie to Qualcomm’s 56%.
MediaTek isn’t as a very remarkable commonly recognized name for cell phone processors as Qualcomm (which has for quite some time been the prevailing power for Android telephones in the US, particularly for top of the line leads). Yet, the organization has been consistently working out its presence in the US in low-and mid-range gadgets, including the LG Velvet or the Moto G Pure.
IDC’s report takes note of that MediaTek’s flood was driven to a great extent by deals of the Galaxy A12, Galaxy A32, and G Pure, which made up 51% of MediaTek gadgets sold in Q4 and 24 percent of the whole Android market in the US.
The stunt for MediaTek is persuading makers and clients the same that its more exceptional chips – like its leader Dimensity 9000, which the organization says is more impressive than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 – merit giving a shot as it keeps on attempting to break into the top of the line Android gadget market.
There are clashing reports, nonetheless: Counterpoint Research’s own report puts the Q4 2021 split at 55% for Qualcomm, and 37 percent for MediaTek, so it’s conceivable that Qualcomm is as yet clutching its crown until further notice.
All things considered, MediaTek isn’t settling for the status quo, by the same token: the organization has reported a triplet of new chips that will hope to additional its points of offering all the more impressive 5G chips. At the highest point of the market are the Dimensity 8100 and Dimensity 8000, which are stream down cousins to the more impressive Dimensity 9000 lead.

Be that as it may, the organization has been consistently working out its presence in the US in low-and mid-range gadgets, including the LG Velvet or the Moto G Pure.
While both of those chips be based on TSMC’s 5nm hub (rather than the 4nm interaction utilized by the Dimensity 9000) and utilize less strong CPU and GPU centers, they’ll offer a portion of the AI and 5G highlights appeared on the better quality stage. Furthermore, the organization likewise declared another 5G-competent Dimensity 1300 chipset, an updated variant of the organization’s Dimensity 1200 model with upgrades for AI execution.
Every one of the three of the new chips are set to make a big appearance in cell phones at some point in the primary quarter of 2022 – where they’ll probably hope to assist MediaTek with proceeding to fill in the US (whether or not it’s really demolished Qualcomm).
