MediaTek seeks to shift to advanced 4nm chipmaking process ahead of Qualcomm

MediaTek is apparently working on shifting towards newer advanced chip manufacturing processes. This shift will have the company move towards the advanced 4nm process, which is a jump from the previously rumored 5nm based chips from the company.
According to a MoneyUDN report, the chipmaking giant will be one of the first firms to place an order with TSMC, world’s largest contract chip maker, for 4nm based chips and even the next gen 3nm based chips as well. In other words, the company is also one of TSMC’s first  customers for the 3nm process, with others like being Apple and Qualcomm in the future. Furthermore, this has also led MediaTek to see an influx of orders from various Android smartphone makers like Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi.
Meaning, the company will become a key supplier of 5G enabled chipsets to upcoming high end devices that will launch in the near future. Notably, this would also mark the first time MediaTek has been a proper contender in the high end flagship market and has also kept pace with or even surpassed its primary rival, Qualcomm. Simply put, the shift towards more advanced manufacturing process would only benefit the company in the smartphone market.
For those unaware, the 4nm process and even the 3nm process is more advanced that the current gen 5nm process. Since the technology is more advanced the cost of 5G enabled chips from the company is expected to rise from 30 to 35 US Dollars to 80 US Dollars, which could also lead to a significant rise in revenue as well.
