In China, handset vendors are ready to launch new 5G phones in a bid to make up lost ground from Apple, who has made major gains in the Chinese market in fourth-quarter 2020 thanks to strong sales of its iPhone 12 family. Demand for products and services across all semiconductor segments have tightened capacity supply or sent prices rising.
