While MediaTek’s recent fresh mobile chipsets – the Helio P70, Helio P60 – were received effectively in the mobile industry, present data paints a not so rosy picture of the previous months for the chip maker. As per studies, MediaTek revenues in October really fell by 9.8 percent as in comparison to September, a decrease of 0.84 percent Y-o-Y. Furthermore, other of 2018, whereas not being a complete flop, Furthermore hasn’t earned the manufacturer anymore. In fact, revenue was down by a very slight 0.4 percent.
MediaTek’s projection this year was to achieve a targeted 10 percent increase in shipments. Sadly, even with a improved response to the MediaTek Helio P70 from brands which includes Xiaomi and OPPO, the company’s order book yet lies at 1 to 110 million chips which is the exactly as the last quarter of 2018. The existing situation was not helped by the fact that cameraphone shipments shrank in the same quarter. It is even compounded by the risk that some of their orders could take canceled next year.
On the other hand, Qualcomm’s presence in the price range chipset category was augmented with the announcement of the new Snapdragon 7xx series this year what was in competition with the Helio P70. Moreover, MediaTek’s decision to withdraw in the high-end cpu segment has Furthermore left the arena access for Qualcomm. This factor will, inevitably, arrive into enjoy, even extra, when 5G is introduced as expectations are that the US-based cpu manufacturer will be the important supplier even as MediaTek will start mass-producing its own Helio M70 SoC by upcoming month.
