Qualcomm trolls Apple the day before the new iPhone

The timing of the post is very interesting given Qualcomm and Apple are now a part of a massive legal fight dealing with patent licensing fees and antitrust laws.

What do you guys think about this Apple - Android rivalry? It really rubs the lemon right into Apple's eye, and rightfully so.

Qualcomm points out that the first bezel-less design came in Xiaomi's 2016 Mi Mix, which has since been taken up widely in the industry.

A referral on the grounds of media plurality had been expected but the likely prospect of the second referral was a surprise. She said there was a risk "which is not purely fanciful" that the merger would not be in the public interest.

Inventions from Qualcomm lay the foundation for so many technologies and experiences we value in our smartphones today - on Android and other platforms. The company also offers their praise of Samsung for introducing iris scanning within its phones (Samsung Galaxy S8).

Semiconductor and telecommunications equipment company Qualcomm posted a list of innovations and inventions that the company has implemented in Android-based smartphones in recent years. The company cites LG's not-yet-released V30 as being first to Bluetooth 5 when both the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 already have it. Samsung would probably also disagree with LG's G Flex 2 getting a random shoutout for OLED technology. To this end, the chip maker has published a list of Android firsts that were made possible thanks to Qualcomm technology. Originally, the HTC One M7 was listed as having the first dual camera system and it actually was the HTC One M8 that was the first with a dual camera setup. Lastly, I don't quite understand how it's fair to include a non-commercial "Qualcomm Reference Design Handset" in any of these categories, but hey. Earlier this year, Apple sued the chipmaker for roughly $1 billion claiming that Qualcomm has been "charging royalties for technologies they have nothing to do with". As before, they'll continue to pave the way for others to come.

On their blog, Qualcomm has very proudly listed out all the major technological achievements in the world towards the smartphone as a product.
