Keen to talk about its 100 other design wins
While the Tame Apple Press has made a big thing about Intel’s winning of a slice of the iPhone modem production, Qualcomm is keen to talk about all the other orders it has won this year.
Modem conspiracy theories quashed
Aicha Evans, the head of Intel's wireless group has been convinced to remain part of Chipzilla after announcing she was going to quit a week ago.
Qualcomm still favoured
While it had been expected that Chipzilla was going to score a huge win by taking some of Qualcomm’s modem business, it looks like things might be a little more modest.
Only took a year
The woman who was supposed to be behind Intel’s mobile chip boost has given up on the job after only a year.
Apple stuck with Qualcomm
One of the things that did not get noticed in Apple’s release notes for its rebadged iPhone5S is that the modem was not from Intel.
Industry insiders confirmed
Contrary to our previous reports we got a tip that iPhone SE will continue using Qualcomm modems and not change to Intel.
Reaches 980 Mbps+ speeds
Qualcomm is having a good year when it comes to the high end products with both Samung and LG basing their Flagships on Snapdragon 820 and 600 Mbps X12 modem.Now the company has demonstrated its X16 modem that can reach 1Gbps speeds
14nm, available in 2H 2016
Qualcomm has finally launched what it thinks will be the next milestone in the LTE modem speed – a Gigabit Class LTE Chipset with download speeds of up to 1 Gbps.
One stop solution for greatness
Qualcomm and a few top managers have been underlining the importances of SoC integration – Snapdragon 820 has top WiFi, top LTE, top GPU, quite powerful DSP and custom cores.
The rumours might be half true
Earlier this week we wrote how Intel had assigned an army of minions to get its modem under the bonnet of the iPhone 7, however there is one elephant in the room which makes this nearly impossible – CDMA.
