  1. WSJ: 5G Expands to More-Affordable Phones as Chip Prices Fall

    5G is increasingly available in cheaper phones, making faster mobile service affordable to more lower-income consumers around the world, market researchers say.

    The key to this broader access to 5G service is the falling price of the specialized semiconductors needed for 5G phones, a trend that analysts expect to continue over the next two years. The lower price makes it economically feasible to put the chips in a wider range of phones.

    Already, 5G technology has moved beyond the premium smartphone market, in which devices sell for $550 or more, to the midtier market where devices sell for $250 to $550, and even cheaper 5G phones are available in some places, says Jeff Fieldhack, research director at Counterpoint Research.

    5G technology is “moving very quickly downwards in terms of affordability, faster than any previous generation,” says Frank Boulben, chief revenue officer of Verizon Communications Inc.’s Consumer Group. In Asia, prioritization of 5G chips by chip manufacturers in China and Taiwan is pushing chip prices lower and driving the production of budget 5G-capable devices, says Neil Shah, vice president of research at Counterpoint.

    The average price of a so-called 5G system-on-a-chip that performs multiple functions is now $40 to $45, according to Counterpoint. That price could reach $20 late this year or early next year, at which point it would make economic sense for more mobile-phone makers to put 5G chips in devices with a retail price of around $150, says Mr. Fieldhack.

    U.S. carrier Consumer Cellular Inc. expects to offer a 5G phone priced at $199 by June, and one priced at around $150 by early next year, according to Greg Hughes, the company’s vice president of portfolio strategy. Currently the company offers 5G-capable phones priced at $349 and higher. Mr. Hughes says he expects consumer adoption of 5G to increase when the technology is available in lower-priced smartphones.

    Globally, 5G capability will spread to at least 80% of phones priced under $200 over the next two to three years, from less than 5% now, says Runar Bjørhovde, research analyst at market-research firm Canalys.

    42% of smartphones shipped to retailers around the world in 2021 were 5G-capable, according to Counterpoint. That percentage is expected to increase to 54% this year and 66% next year, Counterpoint says. In the U.S., 58% of smartphones shipped to retailers were 5G-capable last year, and that percentage is expected to increase to 83% by the end of this year and to 89% by the end of 2023, Counterpoint says.

  2. Lockdowns hurt MediaTek, Qualcomm:

    Taiwanese smartphone IC designer MediaTek Inc and US rival Qualcomm Inc felt the sting of Chinas COVID-19 lockdowns as their smartphone IC shipments from in country fell in April, market advisory firm CINNO Research said.

    Strict COVID-19 measures in major cities such as Shanghai, Kunshan and Suzhou dampened demand for smartphones in China, the firm said.

    CINNO Research was founded by semiconductor and flat-panel experts from Taiwan and China.

    Weaker demand for smartphones powered by the Android operating system also took a toll on IC shipments within China, CINNO said.

    As a result, system on chips (SoC) used in smartphone production fell to about 17.60 million units in April, down 21.6 percent from a year earlier and down 12.1 percent from a month earlier, the firm said.

    MediaTek outperformed the overall market and remained the largest smartphone IC provider in the Chinese market in April, but saw its smartphone SoC shipments fall 9 percent from a year earlier to about 7.3 million units, it said.

    MediaTeks April shipments were also down 11.7 percent from March, it said.

    Qualcomm, the second-largest smartphone IC vendor in China, took a bigger hit, with SoC shipments falling 22.5 percent from a year earlier and 14.4 percent from the previous month to 6.2 million units in April, CINNO said.

    Apple Inc was more resilient, as its iPhone 13 series, powered by its iOS system, attracted solid buying in China in April.

    It shipped about 3 million SoCs to China that month, down only 2.2 percent month-on-month and 3.5 percent year-on- year, it said.

    MediaTek, Qualcomm and Apple had a combined share of 94.2 percent of Chinas smartphone chip market in April, up 1 percentage point from March and 9 percentage points from a year earlier.

    China-based HiSilicon Technologies Co, a fabless semiconductor subsidiary of Chinese telecom equipment supplier Huawei Technologies Co, was fourth in April with shipments of 500,000 smartphone chips in China, down 34.3 percent from a month earlier and 83.1 percent from a year earlier, CINNO said.

    Unisoc (Shanghai) Technologies Co was the fifth-largest smartphone IC supplier after shipping about 400,000 units, falling 12.2 percent from a month earlier, but soaring 606.5 percent from a year earlier, it said.

    In addition to the COVID-19 pandemics effect on global demand, geopolitical tensions and a slowdown in the global economy are expected to continue to affect smartphone demand, CINNO said.

    Smartphone brands in the Android camp are expected to be hurt more by weakening demand than Apple, it added.
