This increase in supply to the MediaTek market can be attributed to the company's strategy over the past 6 months. The Dimensity 920 5G chip, which was used as the beating heart of many smartphones such as the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus, Redmi Note 9 Pro Plus and Xiaomi Hypercharge 11i, can be cited as another reason for MediaTek to excel in the Chinese market. Qualcomm is in second place with 26.7 million units of chips, up from 23.6 million in the previous quarter, but up from 27.9 million last year. Decreased. Due to the problems of global chip shortages, the company announced that it intends to focus on flagship chips, which are more profitable, instead of producing intermediate chips. However, one of the possible consequences of this strategy is the loss of market share of the handset. But overall, the strategy will make Qualcomm more profitable with fewer products.

Apple, which ranks third on the list, shipped only 12 million smartphones to China. The figure is down 15.8 percent from the previous quarter of 18.4 million units.

Minimize problems such as chip shortages.
