As the leading supplier in 4G LTE chipset market, Qualcomm has taken
80% of the Chinese mobile phone market in the first half year of 2014
when MTK is transforming to 4G. In recent two years, Qualcomm pays more
attention to Chinese market. At the end of last year, Qualcomm released
the first 64 bite Snapdragon 410 processor, which aimed at RMB 1000
mobile phone market. Even though there are Mavell and Huawei hisilicon
at the same time, no company can surpass Qualcomm because of its
powerful technology accumulation and strategy in China. However, anti-monopoly inspection make some influence on its leading position in China.
Many Chipsets released by Huawei Hisilicon are in the front of
international technology and in some core technology support, Hisilicon
is as good as Qualcomm. Some 4G mobile phone released by Huawei, such
as Ascend P7, adapt Hisilion processor. So far, Hisilicon chipset can
not mass shipment and is hard to apply into other mobile phone brands.
At the same time, Hisilicon is a new brand in this field, and it is a
long way to be a competitor against Qualcomm in 4G LTE chipset market.
