In 2016, MediaTek was crowned the third largest fables IC designer in the world.
MediaTek recently launched a chipset called Dimensity 1200 for flagship 5G smartphones in India. The chip is acclaimed to be one of the best when it comes to speed; it has a clock speed of 3GHz with up to 22 percent faster CPU performance and is also 25 percent more efficient than older versions. The new Dimensity 1200 delivers faster performance that improve Artificial Intelligence multimedia abilities, gaming enhancements, better displays, etc, as it is equipped with Arm Mali-G77 MC9 GPU and six-core MediaTek APU 3.0.
There is currently a global shortage of chips and tech companies would do anything to lay their hands on one. The new MediaTek chip could be hugely demanded and this demand could reflect in Q2 earnings; it is therefore not impossible to expect 10-18 percent revenue growth this next quarter.
