Apart from Qualcomm, MediaTek and Samsung are also planning to introduce the mid-range chipset with 5G support with Exynos 980 & MT6885 SoC. Now we have few reports which claim that the Qualcomm upcoming SD7250 SoC will cost $60-$70 in the US whereas the MediaTek MT6885 SoC will cost anywhere between $40-$50.
The report also reveals that both the chipset will come with Dual-mode 5G support. So this indirectly means one has to shell out more to buy your first 5G mid-range smartphone as the SoC’s are priced too high.
