Qualcomm hopes to ban Apple's iPhone X sales with new lawsuit
piątek, 01 grudnia 2017 14:06

The legal battle between Apple and Qualcomm is even hotter than you might have thought - so hot they were suing each other on the same day. While Apple was busy suing Qualcomm over Snapdragon chips on November 29th, Qualcomm was filing its own lawsuit claiming that phones ranging from the iPhone 7 to the iPhone X violate 16 patents, including power-saving methods, interfaces and even camera autofocus. There's a matching complaint with the US International Trade Commission that would ban imports of the iPhone X and other models over five of the patents. As with Qualcomm's previous ITC tussle, the new ITC case is conspicuously focused only on those iPhones that use Intel's wireless chipsets. Apple has declined to comment.

Penetration rate of OLED smartphone panels to reach over 30% in 2018
czwartek, 30 listopada 2017 16:00

The penetration rate of OLED panels in the smartphone display market is expected to reach over 30% in 2018 due to increasing adoption by smartphone vendors, according to industry sources. The penetration rate could climb higher should the screen burn-in issue associated with the OLED panels be solved and panel makers be able to ramp up their capacity, said the sources. The supply of OLED panels will remain constrained in the first half of 2018 as Samsung Display will continue to be the sole supplier that can mass-produce the panels, while rivals including LG Display, Japan Display and Sharp may start volume production of OLED panels in the second half of 2018 at the earliest, indicated the sources.

Apple accuses Qualcomm of patent infringement in countersuit
czwartek, 30 listopada 2017 13:55

Apple Inc filed a countersuit against Qualcomm Inc, alleging that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon mobile phone chips that power a wide variety of Android-based devices infringe on Apple’s patents, the latest development in a long-running dispute. Qualcomm in July accused Apple of infringing several patents related to helping mobile phones get better battery life. Apple has denied the claims that it violated Qualcomm’s battery life patents and alleged that Qualcomm’s patents were invalid, a common move in such cases. But on Wednesday, in a filing in U.S. District Court in San Diego, Apple revised its answer to Qualcomm’s complaint with accusations of its own. Apple alleges it owns at least eight battery life patents that Qualcomm has violated.
