After losing the Helio X30 to the high-end mobile phone market, MediaTek hovered at the low end of 4G for three years, and now 5G is in its infancy, mediatek is turning around with its new flagship Dimensity 1000. Yesterday MediaTek officially released its first 5G SoC processor, the world’s most advanced flagship 5G single chip “Dimensity 1000” (MT6889), the specifications of the high, won more than a dozen world first in one go. The search for invincibles also shows that MediaTek is once again killing into the top mobile phone market.
Built using a 7nm process, the CPU integrates 4 Cortex A77 cores, frequency 2.6GHz, 4 Cortex A55 small cores, frequency 2.0GHz, GPU is also ARM’s strongest public version Mali-G77 MP9, frequency up to 836MHz, Overall performance is currently the leading level.
With the power of the product, MediaTek’s bottom gas is also sufficient, first of all, 5G high-end chip prices come up, analysts say MediaTek 5G processor Dimensity 1000 can sell for $60, about 421 yuan, higher than the previous expectation of 50 dollars, And overall 5G chip sales are expected to reach between 35 million and 60 million pieces, which will significantly improve MediaTek’s revenue and profitability.
MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000 processor will start shipping in December, and next year’s Q1 q1 end product launch will push MediaTek’s Q1 revenue to Reach T$64 billion, down 5% month-on-month, but up 20% year-on-year, the second-highest in recent years.
Dimensity 1000 is MediaTek’s first 5G SoC processor, the main high-end market, terminal positioning in the 3500 yuan or more, and then in q2 quarter there will be positioning in the high-end 5G processor, the price of $35, the current 4G chip is still 15-20 dollars higher.
MediaTek will launch a third 5G chip in the second half of next year, with a unit price of around $25-30, mainly for low- and middle-end 5G phones priced at less than 2,000 yuan.
All in all, with 5G SoC processors, MediaTek’s 2020 revenue and earnings are both record, with revenue squeading expected to break the embarrassment of single-digit or even 0-year growth over the past three years, and gross margins rising above 42%, a problem that was previously below 40% gross margin.
