Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Led Flagship Smartphone Chipsets in July – A17 Bionic Poised to Lead in August as Apple Ramps Up iPhone 15 Pro Models
La Jolla, CA -
As we highlighted in the Monthly Flagship Smartphone Tracker, the 5nm Apple A15 Bionic, the 4nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and the 4nm Apple A16 Bionic chipset were the top three flagship (flexible and foldable OLED) smartphone chipsets in June. The continued share gains for the A15 Bionic chipset were the result of significant panel shipments for the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 14. In June, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 were the top two models on a panel shipment basis. For 2023, prior to June, the A15 Bionic led all chipsets, followed by the A16 Bionic chipset and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset was introduced on November 15, 2022, and is used in 15 flagship smartphone models.
With last week’s announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 and several recently announced new flagship smartphones from Honor and Vivo, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset is expected to have the #1 chipset share for July. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, A17 Bionic and A16 Bionic chipsets are expected to be the top three chipsets in July.
In August, we expect the 3nm A17 Bionic, the 4nm A16 Bionic and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipsets to lead the flagship smartphone category. We expect the A17 Bionic chipset to be used in the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro Max. These two models are tracking to be the #1 and #2 models in August on a panel shipment basis. The ramp up of the iPhone 15 Pro models and the A17 Bionic chipset in August is tracking to be the largest majority of all iPhone panel shipments. The A16 Bionic chipset is expected to have the #2 position with strong panel shipments for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is expected to have the #3 position as a result of significant panel shipments for the Galaxy Z Flip 5, Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy S23 Ultra.
