Qualcomm Releases List of Innovative Features that It Brought First on Android Devices

Qualcomm has published a list of "Android firsts" on its website, hours ahead of an Apple event which is set to host the launch of the iPhone 8. Features such as bezel-less displays and iris scanning are already becoming standard in the Android world but many others in the list have even been in the iPhones for quite some time. However, the company has contributed a lot in various technologies that are used by the consumers on Android smartphones.

The first technology it references is super-fast Gigabit LTE, which is a nod to Apple and Qualcomm's ongoing legal spat over licensing fees. "Qualcomm has enabled some notable world firsts on Android, and some remain Android exclusives to this day".

Apple uses modems from both Intel and Qualcomm in iPhones but reportedly decided, for consistency's sake, not to enable Gigabit LTE in iPhones with Qualcomm's modem until Intel chips have the same capability.

New Zealand MP 'probed over close China links'
He also spent time at the Luoyang Language Institute, run by the Third Department, which carries out spying activities for China. A Chinese-born New Zealand MP has admitted to teaching Chinese spies, while working as a lecturer in Louyang.

Those following iPhone 8 rumors already know that the innovations Qualcomm mentioned are all things the iPhone 8 is expected to have, or if not the iPhone 8, the other iterative iPhone upgrades Apple might unveil alongside.

Among the notes, Chris Caso of Raymond James, who follows shares of chip makers Qualcomm (QCOM) and Intel (INTC), writes today that there appears to be no change in the relative standing of the two companies in supplying the "baseband" wireless modem chip for the iPhone, compared to a year ago, when Intel for the first time won some business away from Qualcomm for the parts. The first augmented reality phone is Lenovo Phab Pro 2. It seems to be saying that whatever Apple unveils on September 12, it won't have anything that hasn't been on an Android phone before. Overall, Qualcomm's post could have been a bit more researched, even if its meant to point out Apple's late but refined entry to the party.

It's hard to dispute the general point that Qualcomm is making here, though. "The vibrant Android ecosystem is built on Qualcomm inventions and our industry enabling horizontal model".
