As the key smartphone manufacturers are looking forward to incorporating 5G tech into their gadgets. Now, to serve the demand, only 3 chipmaker companies are delivering the way to provide 5G technology solutions. Namingly Intel, MediaTek, and Qualcomm are willing to provide 5G IPs, patents and modem chips to the manufacturers.
On the other hand, manufacturers are moreover keeping a watch and yet waiting around for the technologies to get mature sufficient before trying. Huawei, Samsung, and Apple seem reluctant of jumping into the bandwagon of 5G modem chipsets. The source claims that “Huawei, Samsung Electronics and Apple are allegedly yet taking a wait-and-see attitude toward whether to jump on the bandwagon of 5G modem chipsets”.
Because of to various barriers, whether they are related to finance, marketing or development, those three companies will lead the path to 5G mobile communication technologies. Furthermore, during the first phase of 5G evolution, these companies will endeavour the growth.
In monetary terms, the new solutions are not offering any particularly financial advantages. As per Taiwan IC designers, the development processes are not posing any greater economic challenges but AI chips are raising significant effect on the general spending. Even though the complications, experience improvements need an advanced Research and Development effort what needs extra funds. This fund crunch is keeping the newcomers at a bay of developing the 5G modem chipsets.
“But extra complicated tests, performance improvements and yield rate adjustments for modem chips need much extra support, requiring chipmakers to drastically extend the scale of R&D teams.”
As far as the MediaTek is concerned, then it would leverage the high price/performance ratios to generate momentum in the growth. Even though, they are figuring out a new marketing strategy to deliver the most from the upcoming 5G wave.
Additionally, Samsung is preparing to launch a 5G backed cameraphone with Qualcomm Sd 855 chipset later this year. Huawei is Additionally making efforts to launch 5G backed smartphone this year. There’s a lot of gossip heading on in the market related to the 5G supported cameraphones, however nothing is established as of currently.
