Recently Samsung and Intel both filed claims against Qualcomm, stating they have been “harmed” by its misconduct. Although Samsung produces its own chips that compete with Qualcomm’s, it uses its competitor’s chips in its smartphones — such as the Snapdragon 835 processor in the Galaxy S8. Qualcomm’s “exclusionary” actions are that Qualcomm has refused to license Samsung to make and sell licensed chipsets wherefore Samsung now cannot sell licensed Exynos chipsets to non-Samsung companies.
Qualcomm finally took the wraps off its Snapdragon 835processor on Tuesday as the company officially announced the specific details about its latest SoC. Alongside, Qualcomm announced the first product to run on the new Snapdragon 835 SoC - ODG's AR/ VR smart glasses - apart from the latest edition of its connected car reference platform, as well as a new reference design for wireless stereo headsets, and new active noise cancellation technology for ultra small earbuds.
Interestingly, almost all of the specifications of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor were already leaked in a blog post spotted earlier this week.
