Qualcomm says it invented Apple's innovation

Qualcomm says it invented Apple's innovation”

Qualcomm has published a list of "Android firsts" on its website, hours ahead of an Apple event which is set to host the launch of the iPhone 8. The specific feature is listed followed by the Android model it was first seen on.

"Qualcomm Technologies has enabled some notable world firsts on Android, and some remain Android exclusives to this day", it boasts. Qualcomm has put up the list of innovations in its blog post.

Qualcomm is deliberately keeping any Apple references out of its blog post for one good reason. For example, under Iris Authentication/Facial Recognition, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is listed.

"We've been inventing foundational technologies for Gigabit LTE for well over a decade", Qualcomm says. For Bezel-less display, the Xiaomi Mi MIX is credited, and the Sony Xperia Z4 is named for the first water resistant touch screen. It also takes credit for enabling the bezel-less design in Essential's new phone. 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". 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.

After last year's Note 7 fiasco, we weren't sure how Samsung and Note fans would respond. Originally, the HTC One M7 was listed as having the first dual camera system and it actually was the HTC One M8 that was the first with a dual camera setup.
