  1. Qualcomm CEO Mollenkopf defends company's chip licensing practices in court The U.S. District Court in San Jose rolled out the red carpet yesterday, as Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf showed up to testify. According to CNET, the executive appeared in front of Judge Lucy Koh, who is presiding over the 10 day non-jury FTC v. Qualcomm trial. The government agency says that the methods used by Qualcomm to license its patents are anti-competitive, especially its "no license, no chips" policy. Phonemanufacturers who want to buy modem chips from Qualcom
  2. Apple Loses Another Patent Violation Lawsuit Against Qualcomm The war between Apple and Qualcomm continues, and this time the one celebrating the victory is the San Diego-based chipmaker. The court ruled against Apple, as the jury explains that the company violated three different patents and must pay a total of $31 million in damages. This is also the amount that Qualcomm was hoping to obtain as part of the legal dispute. The lawsuit was started in 2017 by Qualcomm due to what it described as an infringement on three patents covering technolog
  3. If there’s one constant in the world of Android phones, it’s that the top phones all use Qualcomm’s best Snapdragon processor. This year, that’s the Snapdragon 855, a powerful system-on-chip that we’ve already seen in the Galaxy S10, One Plus 7 Pro, LG G8 ThinQ, and a few others. Naturally, we assumed that the premium handsets coming in the second half of the year, namely the Galaxy Note 10 and Pixel 4, would use the same processor. But that might not be the case. Qualcomm has announced a mid-year refresh to the Snapdragon 855 that it’s calling the 855 Plus. Because, y
  4. How Qualcomm shook down the cell phone industry for almost 20 years We did a deep-dive into the 233-page ruling declaring Qualcomm a monopolist. Enlarge Getty / Aurich Lawson In 2005, Apple contacted Qualcomm as a potential supplier for modem chips in the first iPhone. Qualcomm's response was unusual: a letter demanding that Apple sign a patent licensing agreement before Qualcomm would even consider supplying chips. "I'd spent 20 years in the industr
  5. Qualcomm filed a motion calling for a German court to levy fines against Apple for not complying with a December import ban barring iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 models from being sold in Germany, reports Bloomberg. According to Qualcomm, Apple failed to properly recall the banned iPhones from third-party sellers and continued to sell them in some Apple Stores in early January. Qualcomm in early January posted 1.34 billion euros in security bonds to enforce the ban, and Apple pulled its iPhones entirely from the country the next day. Qualcomm general counsel Don Rose

Asus will be responsible for designing and developing the hardware, according
  11. Qualcomm will likely introduce the Snapdragon 875 on December 1 Typically, every December Qualcomm holds its Snapdragon Technology Summit in Maui, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it's going to be a virtual event this year. The company sent out invitations to the digital event, which will be held on December 1-2. It's usually a three-day event, but presumably, it's being shortened due to the different format. The obvious thing that the firm is likely to announce is the Snapdragon 875, its next flagship chipset for smartphones. The Snapdragon 8 series chip h

Traditionally, that means more expensive, power-hungry phones than an integrated solution. Announced alongside the 865 is Qualcomm’s other new processor, t

    The Heat Death of 5G

    Spend any time in wireless, or Technology in general, and the subject of 5G is almost certain to come up. We have written about it here (and here). The world is full of talk about fast 5G networks and all the incredible new things that 5G will unleash. A whole new Internet, they say. Here at D2D, we like to think of ourselves as practical, nuts-and-bolts-and-antenna people. So for us, a lot of this 5G discussion strikes us a bit breathless. Yes, 5G is coming and data rates will improve, but we, the mobile industry, still have a lot of work to do. We could regale you wi
  15. (Reuters) - Qualcomm Inc has responded to comments made by Apple Inc Chief Executive Tim Cook in an interview, in which he said there had been no recent settlement talks between the iPhone maker and chip supplier in their global legal battle, calling Cook’s remarks “misleading.” Apple on Wednesday said it stood by Cook’s comments. The two companies are disputing comments their respective CEOs have made over settlement talks. Apple’s chief on Tuesday said any talks ended in September 2018.

  17. The United States International Trade Commission will not be blocking imports of the iPhone in the ongoing Apple v. Qualcomm case, reports Reuters. Qualcomm had asked the ITC to ban imports of the AT&T and T-Mobile iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X models that use chips from Intel, citing multiple patent violations. Qualcomm did not ask for a ban on iPhones that use Qualcomm LTE chips, with the reasoning that a more limited exclusion order was more likely to be granted. An ITC judge said on Friday that while Apple's
  18. But no one has ever said that about Intel In a moment showing a complete lack of self-examination, Chipzilla is moaning to anyone who will listen that the chipmaker Qualcomm is an evil monopolist which is stifling competition. In an official statement, Intel called out Qualcomm for continuing to pursue its use of patent lawsuits and threatening lawsuits against its customers and competitors even as multiple antitrust agencies have found Qualcomm to be violating competition laws with these tactics. Steven Rodgers, Intel EVP and general counsel, said tha

  21. Google’s Android OS for smartwatches, Wear OS, isn’t nearly as successful as Android for smartphones, tablets, or televisions, and there’s a lot of blame to go around for that. We can blame Google for not having enough confidence to launch its own smartwatch hardware or for barely giving Wear OS the time of day at its big developer conference, or we can blame Qualcomm for failing to design a competitive smartwatch SoC. Smartwatches from Samsung, Huawei, and Apple, with their custom operating systems and SoCs, tend to have much better battery life than smartwatches with Wear OS and Qualcomm’s S
