MediaTek to report Q2 earnings next week; sales in the period were led by AI enabled mobile chipsets
Taiwan based chipmaker MediaTek is expected to report its complete second quarter earnings on Tuesday. The company has already announced that its revenue for the period, which includes April through June, came in at NT $60.48 billion ($1.99 billion USD), which surpassed the company's own guidance of  NT $55.6-59.6 billion. MediaTek credited the better than expected gross to marketplace acceptance of its AI enabled mobile SoCs. Sequentially, Q2 revenue rose 21.8% from Q1.

According to MediaTek, phone manufacturers like Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo purchased its AI supported chipsets last quarter. But a slowdown is seen for the second half of this year as the company is expected on Tuesday to forecast revenue growth for the current quarter to a range of 5%-10%. Fourth quarter chipset sales to phone manufacturers have been slow, although the current U.S.-China trade war is making it hard for the company to get a clear indication of future sales.

Sales of non-phone related chips, such as those produced for smart speakers, TVs and IoT products, tend to get a seasonal bounce during the three months from July through September. That is because manufacturers want to boost production heading into the important holiday shopping season, which includes the last two months of the fourth quarter.

Stay away from cheapie Mediatek phones. Lots of Android apps don't work with this chip. Stick with Snapdragons, apps run more reliably on them. You've been warned!

No man... This was a problem few years back...but now a days most of Mediatek processors are better than Snapdragons in there respective class. P60 is good example

Mi A2 with SD660 is cheaper than most smartphone with P60, and still smash them all in performance.. And smartphone with mediatek isn't really good with OS update :-/ (But P22 is still the best budget processor for now, redmi 6 (~$130) can surpass 70k on antutu, and it's already 12nm. Too bad it's limited to 720p screen)

Yep, the P60 is close in CPU but significantly behind in GPU, efficiency, modem and ISP compared with the SD660 Comparing with the older SD652 close in CPU, modem, ISP, still behind in GPU and likely in efficiency since Qualcomm's firmware is so much better than MediaTek's

Only on paper but not in real life. In real life P60>>SD 660

This, the Adreno crushes the Mali in this competition. CPU may be close in areas but graphics goes to Adreno as usual.

Nokia 7 (SD 660) vs Oppo F7 or Realme 1 (P60)https://youtu.be/npDEmEL6yewhttps://youtu.be/vYNLGugDG4M P60 not only powerful but also much more efficient and also a built in AI unit. Nokia 7 vs F7 efficiency test.https://youtu.be/REmxA56B_mE Realme 1 with P60 is available for $120 India which almost 1/4 of Nokia 7 and is half the price of Mi A2. SD660 is over priced s**t. Even upcoming Redmi Note 6 pro is going to pack P60

Step of the mediatek, nothing to do with the Qualcomm. They are always safe, powerful and efficient (except 810). Mediatek is not that they have not improved their crap, but Qualcomm is above, nothing to do with the Chinese company.

Mediatek has been doing great work by innovating their chipset and bringing AI into our devices!
