MediaTek first to release a 4nm chipset, already has orders from OEMs
According to two separate sources, MediaTek is going to be the first chip maker to release a 4nm chipset. Production is supposed to start either at the end of this year (Q4 2021) or at the beginning of 2022.
In fact, some major OEMs have already taken orders for MediaTek's high-end SoC. We are talking Oppo, Xiaomi, Samsung, and vivo. The downside is that MediaTek has secured the 4nm order from TSMC at a big cost - around $80 per unit compared to the current high-end 5nm chipsets that cost between $30 and $35.
A famous Chinese tipster claims that MediaTek's hardware will be able to challenge today's Snapdragon 800-series and also reduce power consumption considerably. It's all just rumors for now, of course and we will have to wait almost a year to see if MediaTek beats everyone to the finish line.

I meant that there's a 50% increase in wafer cost from N7 to N5, and I doubt that MT was giving a "high-end" design like the D1000 at 20 bucks+small profit to OEMs. N4 should be at least as expensive as N5 if not more.
