Qualcomm claims Android always beats the iPhone to new features

Samsung Turkey Nougat Roadmap dated 08/09/2017

The specific feature is listed followed by the Android model it was first seen on.

The list details the technologies which Qualcomm has enabled on Android devices, including some which "remain Android exclusives to this day". Let's take fast charging or quick charging, a feature that Qualcomm is pretty proud to hype.

Qualcomm never mentions Apple by name in the blog; the closest the company ever comes is with this line: "Inventions from Qualcomm lay the foundation for so many technologies and experiences we value in our smartphones today - on Android and other platforms".

Qualcomm is deliberately keeping any Apple references out of its blog post for one good reason. One great example is Gigabit LTE. Qualcomm praises the Galaxy S8 for introducing iris scanning - but that was really the Note 7's new thing if we're being technical.

OSU coach Mike Gundy announced Tuesday that Vaughn was dismissed from the team Sunday, the day after Vaughn's arrest. The men gave permission to the officers to search for marijuana, as did Vaughn once police spoke with him.

Nevertheless, through its licensing program, the company aims to make its new technologies available to startups and globally popular companies like Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola and so on. The first augmented reality phone is Lenovo Phab Pro 2. 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. 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.

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". Now I'm not sure I want to go back. Apple's iPad and iPhone manufacturing partners including Compal Electronics, Foxconn Technology Group, Pegatron Crop. and Wistron Corp. have joined Apple in the fight against Qualcomm.
