MediaTek Has Gained Market Share In India

It is also interesting to see that MediaTek has gained 11 percent market share in just a year, whereas Qualcomm has lost 4 percent market share in India. This alone has helped MediaTek to become the number of smartphone chipset vendor of Q3 2020.

There was a surge in the launch of gaming-oriented mid-range smartphones in India. Most of these devices were based on a MediaTek G series chipset. On top of that, the world’s most affordable 5G phone — Realme V3 is also powered by a MediaTek processor.
