Problems with shipments of smartphone components were reported by Xiaomi and Realme. There is a shortage of both processors and other components, in particular RF modules and power supply chips.

Smartphone makers are talking about a shortage of Qualcomm products. The full cycle of supply of chips from this company now exceeds 30 weeks. For example, the delivery of CSR Bluetooth audio solutions takes 33 weeks. “Qualcomm core chips out of stock“, – said representatives of Realme.

The situation is aggravated by the fact that smartphone developers are constantly expanding their range, and therefore there is an additional need for microchips of different levels.

Therefore, market participants believe that this year global smartphone shipments may be seriously affected. There is no word on when the supply of electronic components for cellular devices can be expected to stabilize.
