With the listing of Dimensity 800 series 5G processors, MediaTek has finally become a hit in the 5G smartphone market. The Xiaomi Redmi 10X series was the first to come with this chip. And it made this SoC even more popular. Moreover, the Redmi 10X is very popular now, and MediaTek has urgently pursued 50% of orders. TSMC is scheduled to have more 7nm capacity.
Although the Redmi 10X series currently mainly uses the Dimensity 820 processor, other manufacturers will soon follow up. Among them, we can mention Samsung, VIVO, OPPO and other companies that are increasing orders for MediaTek. In fact, these manufacturers want to seize the market left by Huawei space.
