Android firsts, brought to you by Qualcomm

13 Setiembre 2017

One of the latest innovations from Qualcomm is making Gigabit LTE connectivity possible on Android smartphones. The findings showed that iPhone fared better when it comes to fingerprint sensor for login, calls, music and podcasts, search, set-to-vibrate option and Siri.

The idea was to show all the "firsts" Android phones have achieved through Qualcomm's technologies - things such as fast charging, organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays, Bluetooth 5, and augmented reality.

On the eve of Apple launching their new iPhones, sleazeball Qualcomm decided to stick Apple in the eye to state that most firsts in the smartphone world are due to Qualcomm technology on Android, not Apple.

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

Inventions from Qualcomm lay the foundation for so many technologies and experiences we value in our smartphones today - on Android and other platforms. But the San Diego-based semiconductor giant is about to lose its largest royalty contract for good.

Qualcomm Technologies has enabled some notable world firsts on Android, and some remain Android exclusives to this day. It also lists the Android devices which contain the technologies.

Qualcomm is at war with Apple, and at the bottom of this report you'll find the many reports that we've covered on this battle. These are patents that smartphone manufacturers are required to license in order to build their devices. For example, under Iris Authentication/Facial Recognition, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is listed. It seems to be saying that whatever Apple unveils on Sept. 12, it won't have anything that hasn't been on an Android phone before.

As The Verge notes, the whole list seems like a quick and sloppy Google search at best, but the point Qualcomm tries to make is quite clear.

It's particularly sneaky shade-throwing, especially since Apple is expected to debut the iPhone 8 on Sept. 12. The vibrant Android ecosystem is built on Qualcomm inventions and our industry enabling horizontal model. Nowadays, Apple indeed behind the curve with its iPhone, whether this is the screen we are talking about or the camera.

The Qualcomm list also gives a hint at the specs and features of the iPhone X that will be unveiled tonight. But the telephoto (lens with bigger zoom) was new idea in the iPhone 7 Plus.
