Qualcomm says it invented Apple's innovation

Qualcomm snubs Apple while revealing a list of industry firsts it takes credit for with Android

This comes hours before the launch of the upcoming Apple iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X. 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.

The list details the technologies which Qualcomm has enabled on Android devices, including some which "remain Android exclusives to this day".

Now, Apple's name isn't mentioned anywhere in this random new OnQ blog post, but its timing can't be coincidental.

"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.

Saaho: Prabhas gives a treat to Shraddha Kapoor in Hyderabad
Saaho is a multilingual movie which will be released in total four languages, as in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. She was practicing the Telugu dialogues with the help of a specially appointed language tutor.

But if you want Gigabit LTE now, Qualcomm suggests getting a Samsung Galaxy S8.

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. It has pioneered in making the Xperia Z4 as the first smartphone with water resistant touchscreen and Xiaomi Mi MIX as the first bezel-less phone. 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.

What's the point of listing the tech if the consumer can't get their hands on it yet? "The vibrant Android ecosystem is built on Qualcomm inventions and our industry enabling horizontal model", reads a passage on Qualcomm's website.

Circumstances caused me to change to Android handsets as my daily driver instead of my iPhone 7 Plus. 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.
