Andy, 21 Apr 2015Its so pity to hear these kind of messages still floating around. Bro? Do you even comprehend?... moreIt is still a shame that people like you always agree that pattent must copied where another company invest many time and money and the other get away with it.
So, just shut your mouth boy when you allready agree that Samsung is the biggest thief.
It's not only Qualcom, many and many is the victem from this giant THIEF aka Samsung
i need to wait til 2016 to buy an non heating processor by qualcomm?
Wow looks like is a win win for samsung all around, first apple now the mighty qualcomm..
Anonymous, 21 Apr 2015Qualcom, stay away from those copycats, they have already spy on you Qualcom in the past thats... moreIts so pity to hear these kind of messages still floating around. Bro? Do you even comprehend??? Samsung is one of the makers of mobile chips since anyone is making it too! Samsung chips are multi-platformed I dont know to say the least for the others but they're kinda "newbie" to this game and Samsung is the guru! Samsung even made Apples custom chips and now, as this article says, that Qualcomm will too? Smart people will always KNOW what's the logical way to do and act upon it based on the outcome of the superior (Samsung). And those smart people in Qualcomm are now realizing the truth. I mean c'mon, I will bet a hundred bucks; Samsung WILL FAIL this year or even next, because Im sure it won't.
Samsung already well on their way to integrate the modem with their AP chip, according to reports I've read. Samsung really don't need Qualcomm anymore, other then maybe due to production issues. If Samsung can't produce enough quantity of their Exynos chips due to the flood of orders, they may go back to Qualcomm and TSMC to get more chips.
this mean the issues on the snapdragon 810 is still not resolve.

How do you know other companies don't open up their competitors technology and try to understand how it works.

It makes perfect sense to get some Qualcomm chips into Galaxys, specially when Qualcomm can sell full 4G modems cheaper than the license Samsung has to pay.
Samsung profits both ways, they save on licenses and profit from Qualcomm using their foundries. Win-Win!
The A7/Cyclone continues to amaze me. With Qualcomm's custom Snapdragon 820 now due in 2016, the custom Cyclone has had a head start of three years. That's longer then I even expected. Kuods to Apple's chip designers.
Qualcom, stay away from those copycats, they have already spy on you Qualcom in the past thats why they have the technology from you Qualcom, when you send them the blueprint Samsung will copy it for its own.
Dumb.decision from you Qualcom if this true.
Seems unlikely. Samsung want as much money as possible, and making the next Snapdragon's will highly damage the image of Exynos being the best SoC in the world. We just need to wait for the Snap 820. They may gain money from Qualcomm, but manufacturing will be bad, since thet have ti make both SoC.
The radio part inside both Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge is made by Samsung itself. Although on a seperate die than the exynos SoC, meaning more complex board design and possibly increased power consumption.
However, modem liceinsing fees from qualcomm are avoided, and even though Samsung Mobile buys the radio/modem part from Samsung LSI it certainly cost much less.
