Canalys published a report on the smartphone market in the fourth quarter of 2023, with details by processor vendor.

The analysis revealed that Mediatek powered more devices than any chip manufacturer in the last quarter of the previous year, with a 21% increase year-on-year.

In terms of revenue, Apple topped the charts in the fourth quarter of 2023. Apple’s smartphones equipped with Apple chips generated revenues of $87 billion for the American company, marking a 20% increase from the same period last year.

The report covers only the period from October to December 2023 and does not include details about the entire fiscal year. Mediatek, Qualcomm, and Apple were the top three chip providers in the market, while Huawei’s HiSilicon subsidiary generated $7 billion in revenue compared to 7 million units.

This means that the Chinese company primarily sold Nova 12 and Mate 60 phones powered by the Kirin 9000S processor for an average of $1000 per unit.

Another surprise from China is that phones equipped with Unisoc chips saw a 24% year-on-year increase in revenue and volume.

Samsung Semiconductor saw a 48% decrease in shipments of phones powered by Exynos chips, leading to quarterly revenues dropping to $5 billion, down 44% from last year.

We expect a slight increase in the first half of 2024, as the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ phones powered by the Exynos 2400 system experienced increased sales, while the Galaxy A55 with the Exynos 1480 is set to launch this month.
