MediaTek’s mobile SoCs have slowly been gaining traction amongst Chinese smartphone makers, especially starting this year. This is evident by the fact that Redmi opted for the MediaTek G90T chip for its wildly popular Redmi Note series this year even though there was fear of backlash from users. Now, according to the latest reports from Taiwan, the chip manufacturer is on the verge of getting another big customer in Samsung. This news comes after strong reports that Oppo, Xiaomi, and even Vivo have tied up with the Taiwanese company for its brand new Dimensity 1000 5G chipset.

Samsung Galaxy A-series could come with MediaTek chips

As per the latest report, the South Korean tech giant has approached MediaTek for the 5G chips to send samples to test on the upcoming A-series smartphones in 2020. Samsung has recently pulled out of China as a manufacturer, closing its factories and this probable MediaTek contract will help the Korean firm find Chinese ODM factories to make its mid-range 5G phones, as per analysts. As of now, the two companies have not come to any agreement but the same is possible in the coming weeks. Also Read - MediaTek partners Intel to bring 5G modems to HP, Dell laptops

Regardless, the Dimensity 1000 5G chip now has some big suitors and Samsung could be the latest one. Also Read - Redmi K30 will be powered by a MediaTek SoC, will support 5G: Report
