  1. Qualcomm vulnerability impacts nearly 40% of all mobile phones A high severity security vulnerability found in Qualcomm's Mobile Station Modem (MSM) chips (including the latest 5G-capable versions) could enable attackers to access mobile phone users' text messages, call history, and listen in on their conversations. Qualcomm MSM is a series of 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G capable system on chips (SoCs) used in roughly 40% of mobile phones by multiple vendors, including Samsung, Google, LG, OnePlus, and Xiaomi. "If exploited, the vulnerability would have allowed
  2. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 780G chipset promises more flagship features for less Improved camera and connectivity features borrowed from the Snapdragon 888 Qualcomm has announced its latest 7-series processor, the Snapdragon 780G, which trickles down features from the company’s flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset, while still offering manufacturers (and, by extension, consumers) a more affordable phone. The 780G takes the new top slot in the 7-series lineup, replacing the 765G / 768G (the latter being largely a frequency-boosted version of the former). Obviousl
  3. Qualcomm Completes Acquisition of NUVIA: Immediate focus on Laptops Today Qualcomm is announcing that the company has completed the acquisition of NUVIA, a start-up company consisting of industry veterans who were behind the creation of Apple’s high-performance CPU cores, and who were aiming to disrupt the server market with a new high-performance core called “Phoenix”. The acquisition had been announced only several weeks ago in mid-January, so the whole process has been extremely speedy in terms of timeline. “Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCO
  4. Qualcomm is working on a new Snapdragon 7c chipset for mid-range PCs Last week, a report from WinFuture claimed Qualcomm is working on a newer and more powerful chipset for PCs, one that’s likely an update to the second-gen Snapdragon 8cx. Now, new information says that might not be the only new PC chipset that the company is working on. If a new report from WinFuture is true, then Qualcomm is also working on a new octa-core processor that will be launched under the Snapdragon 7 series, which will also be made specifically for laptops and 2-in-1 PCs. This one is expected to be a succe
  5. New Qualcomm Snapdragon laptop chip leaks — here’s how it will take on Apple M1 Rumors about the next version of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8cx processor have surfaced, and it sounds pretty powerful (Image credit: Qualcomm) It’s been a busy few months for laptop chips, with Apple releasing machines powered by its own M1 processors and Microsoft reportedly looking at making chips of its own. But long before other companies started dabbling in processors, Qualcomm had brought its chip-making skills to notebooks, with an eye toward making the components to powe
  6. Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c performance analysis shows impressive results over competition There's a new performance analysis out that focuses on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 7c chipset, and it shows some interesting results. The tests were carried out by HOTTECH, and they put the Snapdragon 7c against competing products from Intel and MediaTek, all running Chrome OS. Interestingly, AMD wasn't represented in this test, which is a shame. Five Chromebooks were used, including the following: Snapdragon 7c Reference Platform (Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c, 8 GB RAM, 1

  10. Qualcomm objects to Nvidia’s $40 billion Arm acquisition KEY POINTS Qualcomm has told regulators around the world that it is against Nvidia’s $40 billion acquisition of British chip designer Arm, according to sources familiar with the matter. The company has told the Federal Trade Commission, the European Commission, the U.K.’s Competition and Markets Authority and China’s State Administration for Market Regulation that it has concerns about the deal. The FTC’s investigation has moved to a “second phase” and the U.S. regulator has
  11. Qualcomm reclaims the clock speed title with the Snapdragon 870 5G chipset and its 3.2 GHz CPU Old is gold – Qualcomm and TSMC figured out how to squeeze a bit extra performance out of the 7 nm node and created the Snapdragon 865++. Or as the company prefers to call it, the Snapdragon 870 (SM8250-AC). Its CPU reaches the highest clock speed in the mobile world – the prime core now runs at 3.2 GHz, up from 3.1 GHz on the 865+ and 2.94 GHz on the vanilla 865. Those two were surpassed by the Kirin 9000 and its 3.13 GHz prime core, but now Qualcomm has reclaimed the clock s
  12. Qualcomm's answer to Apple's M1 could be the SC8280 Ever since Apple introduced its first ARM-based Macs in November, people have been wondering when Qualcomm and Microsoft are going to introduce something more competitive on the Windows side of things. After all, Apple's M1 chips beat the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 in a big way, and the chipset was only announced in September. Being that Gen 2 was such a minor refresh, some thought that Qualcomm might have something else on the way. According to WinFuture, it just might. Citing 'information available to us', Qua
  13. Qualcomm just snapped up Apple’s chief architect and his CPU startup Qualcomm has announced a $1.4 billion deal to acquire chip design firm Nuvia. The fledgling company was founded by Apple executive Gerard Williams III. He is the long-time chief architect behind a variety of Apple CPUs and chipsets. Qualcomm is the top dog in the Android phone space right now, but it faces stiff competition in the general smartphone space and computing space thanks to players like Apple. Now, the US chipmaker has announced a $1.4 billion deal to acquire f
  14. Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2 will debut in early 2021 phones A couple of years ago, just before 2018 ended, Qualcomm introduced the Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor. It’s an in-display fingerprint scanning technology that has been used on numerous smartphones out in the market. It’s only one of the many technologies by the company and it’s finally getting a follow-up. The second generation is available and is ready to offer “security that goes beyond screen deep”. The new Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor already offers reliable and fast fingerprint scanning. It’s effective even with
  15. Qualcomm announces its first Snapdragon 4 series 5G chipset Today, Qualcomm is introducing the Snapdragon 480 5G platform, and the major significance is that it's the firm's first entry-level 5G chipset. While you can get a Snapdragon 690 handset for under $300, these smartphones will be in the $125-$250 tier. Indeed, a $125 5G smartphone is unheard of in the current market. "Qualcomm Technologies continues to accelerate 5G commercialization globally to make 5G smartphones more accessible, especially as people worldwide continue to connect remotely," said Ke

Srouji confirmed the company's p
  19. It's OK that Qualcomm didn't announce a new chip for Windows at Snapdragon Summit This year, Qualcomm's Snapdragon Technology Summit was held as a digital-only experience, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Journalists like myself would rather be in Maui right now, as it's all the more depressing to look at my "on this day" memories from the last few years. At this year's event, the firm introduced the Snapdragon 888, the chipset that will be included in next year's flagship Android phones. And that's it. There was no mention of Windows on ARM at all, and it's
  20. The other Arm chip making giant thinks Apple Silicon is a validation of what it has been saying. The Snapdragon 888 With recent tests showing that putting Windows onto Apple Silicon absolutely spanks the performance currently available on Qualcomm-made processors, one could be forgiven for thinking Qualcomm was apprehensive about its future desktop prospects. However, Qualcomm SVP and general manager for mobile, compute, and infrastructure Alex Katouzian told journalists on Wednesday that the new chip was a validation for putting mobile chips into lapt
  21. (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday handed a victory to Qualcomm Inc, declining to reconsider an August decision that dismissed the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s antitrust case against the chip designer. In a brief order, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said it would not rehear arguments over whether the San Diego, California-based company had engaged in anticompetitive patent-licensing practices to keep a monopoly on the market for modem chips that connect smart phones to wireless data networks. On Aug. 11, a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit
  22. Qualcomm reportedly developing its own smartphones powered by Snapdragon 875 Look out, Note 20 Ultra (Image credit: Qualcomm) Qualcomm is allegedly developing its own branded smartphones, which will be produced in partnership with Asus, according to a report by Digitimes. These won’t just be run-of-the-mill phones, either – they’ll be premium gaming phones, per industry sources, and could come out as soon as the end of 2020. Asus will be responsible for designing and developing the hardware, according
  23. 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

  25. 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
