At present, only TSMC and Samsung are the only fabs capable of producing 5nm, and TSMC’s production capacity is almost completely covered by Apple, and Samsung is almost the same. Samsung’s 5nm process this year includes the Exynos 2100 used in Samsung’s latest flagship model, the Exynos 1080 used in the Galaxy A series and Vivo, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 series. However, the order is still overwhelming, so it has to adjust its own phones. Chip production capacity. This shows how urgent the market demand for the 5nm process is.
According to MediaTek’s timetable, the MediaTek Dimensity 2000 series is expected to be launched in the first quarter of next year. It is the flagship chip of MediaTek’s annual 5G smartphone, with a 5-nanometer process. Therefore, Dimensity 2000 should be launched in the fourth quarter of this year. Previously, it was reported that Dimensity 2000 had already obtained pre-orders from mobile phone vendors such as OPPO, Vivo and Honor last year. Therefore, the first half of next year is expected to usher in a large-scale wave. upgrade.
