Following the launch of Apple’s 5nm process-based A14 Bionic chipset in October 2020, Samsung introduced its two 5nm chips calls Exynos 1080 and Exynos 2100 in November and January respectively. Moreover, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 that had launched in December last year, is also fabricated on 5nm process tech.
On the other hand, MediaTek still has its flagship SoC based on a 6nm process, but it looks like the Taiwanese chip maker could soon defeat rival chip manufacturers with its first 4nm chip, reports GSMArena. The report further suggests that two independent sources confirmed that MediaTek will be the first chipmaker to release a 4nm based chipset for mobile devices.
Aside from this, the production of MediaTek’s 4nm processor is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2021 or early next year. Furthermore, reports even suggest that various phone manufacturers including Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo have already lined up for new MediaTek SoCs.
Besides, it was said that TSMC will produce 4nm MediaTek processors at a starting price of about $80, while the current high-performance 5nm SoCs are around $30-35. Therefore, a popular Chinese analyst claimed that the upcoming MediaTek processor will be able to challenge the Exynos and Snapdragon’s flagship chips with significantly reduce power consumption.
Over the years, the Taiwanese chipset manufacturer has made great progress. With the help of Samsung Electronics, it has also become the world’s largest chip manufacturer in the field of smartphones. MediaTek may approach Samsung LSI’s plan to expand its market share through Chinese smartphone OEMs that provide Exynos chipsets, just like Exynos 1080.

Samsung Gears Up for Early Release of Galaxy S24 Series to Challenge Apple’s iPhone 15
According to Korean media, Samsung’s Galaxy S24 series will be released early next year. The company will be starting to produce parts in the middle of next month, with the official launch taking place in January.
The report suggests that the early launch of the Galaxy S24 series is in response to Apple’s iPhone 15 series, which continues to see strong demand despite market concerns internationally.
Galaxy S23 Ultra GPU is better than iPhone 15 Pro Max
Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro series is the first to debut 3nm smartphone chipset. Meanwhile, Samsung’s Galaxy S23 Ultra, equipped with a 4nm-based Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chip has a better GPU compared to Apple’s new iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Galaxy S23 Ultra performs much better than iPhone 15 Pro Max in the 3DMark Wildlife Extreme test. The former starts at 3,886 points in the first run and drops to 2,794 points in the 20th run. Meanwhile, iPhone 15 Pro Max starts at 3,608 points in the first run and drops to 2,843 points in just the 2nd run.
The image shows that the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s GPU performance dropped by 22% after just one run of the test. On the flip side, the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s GPU performance dropped by 28% after 20 runs of the graphics test. This gradual decline ensures users won’t notice a sudden drop in performance during gaming.
Samsung will release the Galaxy S24 series next year, which will use Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy processor. It’s reported that select countries will get Exynos 2400 in their S24 and S24 Plus, while the S24 Ultra will solely use Snapdragon processor.
Be Gentle: Apple’s Titanium iPhone 15 Pro Max cracks within 5 seconds
Famous YouTuber, JerryRigEverything, posted his new durability test video on Apple’s latest iPhone. Despite titanium build and durability claims by Apple, the iPhone 15 Pro Max back glass immediately cracked in less than 5 seconds with minimal pressure applied.
The iPhone 6 Plus was the last Apple iPhone, which failed the durability test. The latest durability test video raises concerns that something is wrong with Apple’s latest iPhone 15 Pro Max as its back glass cracked within 5 seconds, even with the least force applied.
This year, Apple used the Aerospace-grade Titanium for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Meanwhile, JerryRigEverything’s iPhone 15 Pro Max durability test video reveals that it’s not as durable as the marketing would lead buyers to believe.

The crack happened immediately at the back of the device whereby the back glass is shown to be completely cracked with glass coming out. However, the device passes the scratch test, with the Ceramic Shield glass starts scratching at Level 6 with deeper grooves on Level 7 on the Mohs scale of durability.
