On March 18, Qualcomm is expected to unveil its new Snapdragon flagship products during the “Snapdragon Flagship Product Launch Event.” According to Extremetech, the event is anticipated to introduce new products such as Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 and Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3, targeting mid-range smartphones priced between $500 to $1000 from Chinese brands. This move aims to strengthen Qualcomm’s marketing efforts in the Chinese market and solidify its position in the flagship smartphone market.

A report by research firm Canalys revealed that in the fourth quarter of 2023, smartphone shipments with MediaTek chips increased by 21% year-on-year, exceeding 100 million units, making MediaTek the world’s largest smartphone chip supplier. The market analysis suggests that MediaTek’s AI smartphone chip, Dimensity 9300, will not have an upgraded version, but a new flagship chip, Dimensity 9400, will be launched in the second half of the year to compete with Qualcomm’s self-developed chip, Oryon CPU’s Snapdragon 8 Gen4, initiating a new battle between the two giants in the latter half of the year.

As the competition in the mid-range flagship smartphone market intensifies, reports suggest that MediaTek’s new Dimensity 9400 chip will be produced using TSMC’s 3nm process, while Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will also utilize TSMC’s 3nm manufacturing. With the introduction of the self-designed Oryon CPU and new flagship processors, consumers can enjoy a better mobile experience at a lower price. Taiwan’s semiconductor industry, led by TSMC, the largest foundry, is expected to benefit from these developments.

Stock trading can be categorized into three modes: long-term, medium-term, and short-term. Long-term value stocks, such as Hon Hai (Foxconn), have recently gained attention, but the ideal buying points are often during stock market crashes. For example, during the market downturn in September-October 2022, Chen Zhilin guided members to invest in Hon Hai below NT$101.5 using a stockholding strategy. Similarly, the last time members purchased TSMC was on October 5, 2023, when it was priced at NT$525. The live broadcast on that day publicly announced the purchase price. Recent programs and articles provide evidence of these transactions.
