"Qualcomm Technologies has enabled some notable world firsts on Android, and some remain Android exclusives to this day", reads the firm's post.

If you've been following recent Apple rumors and leaks, you know that those are all things we expect to see spread across the new iPhones that the company will unveil tomorrow.

While the company has pointed some interesting things in which Android devices have actually brought in first when compared to the iPhone, there is a reason why Apple's mobile devices are sold in the millions; not being biased but that is the truth, no matter how hard it is to fathom for the Android fanboy.

"We're working on inventing the next set of world firsts and collaborating with partners across the industry", said Qualcomm.

Except for the fact that, well, Qualcomm's list has more than one mistake. Here's to the next generation of mobile device start-ups and innovators, competing to bring you the next wave of class-leading Android devices. But we're pretty sure it existed in other Android devices before the LG V30 (a phone that hasn't even come out). Currently, the phones like Galaxy S8 come with wireless charging feature.

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

Iris scanning technology links to the Galaxy S8, but it actually debuted on the Galaxy Note 7. Qualcomm has also tested under-display fingerprint scanner and depth sensing through structured light on the company's reference design handset.

Qualcomm says it helps "countless companies across the globe to commercialize our inventions at both speed and scale, and with a choice for consumers on price points and features". This phone however lost relevance after Google released its answer to Apple's ARKit for iOS 11, ARCore, which enables AR on all Android phones without needing the extra sensors.

The reason for Qualcomm to list a wide variety of smartphones is because the chipset marker works closely with a number of smartphone makers ranging from Samsung, LG, HTC, Lenovo, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi for upcoming technologies.
