At present, there are only 5 manufacturers in the world that can develop 5G chips, namely Qualcomm, MediaTek, Huawei HiSilicon, Samsung, and Ziguang Zhanrui. Even Intel was stumped by 5G baseband chips, and finally sold the overall mobile phone baseband chip business to Apple. .
But what happened later, everyone knows that Huawei’s HiSilicon chips are limited. After September 15, 2020, Kirin chips can no longer be produced, and only inventory is available.
Under such circumstances, Huawei’s mobile phone sales declined, the mobile phone market was taken away by other manufacturers, and the mobile phone chip market was naturally taken away by other manufacturers.
However, judging from the current situation, although Huawei HiSilicon is limited, there is also a domestic 5G chip manufacturer rising and becoming a big dark horse, which is worthy of everyone’s joy.
This manufacturer is Ziguang Zhanrui. In 2019, Zhanrui’s market share in the smartphone market was only 2%. In 2020, Ziguang Zhanrui’s market share has increased to 4%.
By the second quarter of 2021, Zhanrui’s smartphone chip Zhanrui has achieved a market share of 9%, which is a doubled growth.
In the third quarter of 2021, Ziguang Zhanrui achieved a 96% month-on-month growth in shipments of about 4.1 million smartphone SoCs in the domestic market, an astonishing increase of more than 147 times year-on-year.
In fact, why UNISOC’s chips perform so well can be seen from two aspects. One is that UNISOC’s 5G chips really perform well. The Huben series 5G chips are cost-effective and have strong performance. They are a lot of low-end products. Manufacturer’s choice.
In addition, because of the Huawei incident, more and more manufacturers began to prepare more spare tires, and some domestic mobile phone manufacturers also used a large number of domestic chips to support the growth of domestic chips, so Ziguang Zhanrui was received by everyone. welcome.
For example, UNISOC’s chips are now used by Nokia, Motorola, ZTE, Alcatel, Honor, Meizu, Hisense, Duoqin, China Telecom, AGM and other brands.
