• Apple: Apple’s shipments grew in Q4 2023 due to the launch of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro series.

• MediaTek: MediaTek had a strong Q4 with inventory restocking by smartphone OEMs. Growing demand for 5G and 4G SoCs and the successful ramp-up of the company’s third-generation flagship SoC, Dimensity 9300, contributed to the growth.  

• Qualcomm: Qualcomm’s shipments increased in Q4 2023 due to restocking and design wins for flagship chipsets Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and 8 Gen 2 from Chinese smartphone OEMs. 

• Samsung: Samsung’s shipments slightly increased in Q4 2023 due to the launch of Exynos 2400 with the Galaxy S24. The Samsung Galaxy M14 series’ launch with Exynos 1330 and the Galaxy A54 series’ launch with Exynos 1380 have added volumes to the overall Samsung numbers.

• UNISOC: UNISOC’s shipments increased in Q4 2023. We are expecting UNISOC to gain traction in the entry-level 5G segment in H2 2024 after recent management changes and a greater focus on the 5G market.
