Qualcomm says it invented Apple's innovation

Android phones were certainly first to employ a lot of this 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.

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 Note 8 is a stunning phone and Note lovers are sure to appreciate the S Pen functionality, dual camera performance, and more. It is odd to see Galaxy S8 here as it not features a single rear camera. "Our model is to make our inventions available as broadly as possible to the mobile industry through our licensing program, from startups to global companies". It has worked with many new companies such as OPPO and Vivo in China.

It features "Android technologies" such as fast charging, iris authentication, 4K displays, and Gigabit LTE. One great example is Gigabit LTE.

If the A10 Fusion was a tough nut to crack for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and Samsung's own 10nm Exynos chip, then the A11 will turn out to be a nightmare for Qualcomm and all Android device makers out there.

Aside from the goals and victory recorded by Barcelona over the weekend, there was more to celebrate about for Lionel Messi. This is likely Buffon's final season, and the 39-year-old goalkeeper is not having an easy time of it.


Though Qualcomm's post doesn't mention Apple by name, the company suggests it can take credit for some the features in the iPhone.

The iPhone X has only just broken cover and already the benchmarks are leaking, with some claiming Apple's new flagship is more powerful than not only the Samsung Galaxy S8, but the latest MacBook laptops as well. Bluetooth 5 first appeared on the Galaxy S8 and Sony's Xperia XZ Premium, but it's attributed to the HTC U11.

Meanwhile, Qualcomm attributes industry firsts in using depth sensing via structured light and placing a fingerprint scanner under the display - which Apple reportedly was unable to achieve - to two Qualcomm "reference design" handsets.
