Apple: Apple’s shipments grew in Q3 2023 driven by the launch of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro series.

MediaTek: MediaTek’s shipments increased in Q3 2023 as inventory levels came down and the competition tightened in the entry-level 5G segment. New smartphone launches in the low- and mid-end segments have increased the shipments of the Dimensity 6000 and Dimensity 7000 series. The Dimensity 9300 was also upgraded with generative AI capabilities.

Qualcomm: Qualcomm’s shipments in Q3 2023 grew as inventory is now stabilizing to normal levels. Design wins for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the Samsung Galaxy Fold/Flip series also contributed to the growth in shipments. Qualcomm refreshed the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 and Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 series to gain some share back, but the focus will be more on the growth of the premium segment.

Samsung: Samsung’s shipments slightly increased in Q3 2023. The launch of the Samsung Galaxy M14 series with Exynos 1330 and Samsung Galaxy A54 series with Exynos 1380 added volume to the overall Samsung chipset segments.

UNISOC: UNISOC’s shipments remained flat QoQ in Q3 2023. However, it has gained some share in the $100-$150 LTE portfolio. As inventory levels are normalizing, we have a positive outlook for Q4 2023.
