MediaTek is going to launch a 4nm chipset
According to the leaks, chipmaker MediaTek is going to launch a 4nm chipset for smartphones. MediaTek is going to be the first chip maker in the world to produce a 4nm chipset. The production of this new high-tech chip will suppose to start either at the end of this year or the start of the New Year. Also, the new chip will support 5G likewise other flagships chipsets. However, some major tech companies have already given orders for MediaTek’s new chips. The orders are given by some top-notch OEMs. The OEMs include Oppo, Xiaomi, Samsung, and Vivo.
The only drawback of MediaTek’s 4nm chipset is cost. Previously, MediaTek’s high-end 5nm chipsets cost between $30 and $35. On the other hand, MediaTek’s upcoming chipset will be launching with the collaboration of TSMC at a big cost. The cost will be around $80 per unit. Samsung’s rival company, TSMC will start the production of the 4nm chip at the mass level.
There are also rumours coming out that Samsung will use this chipset in its mid-range smartphones.
