BigDisplay, 29 May 2020Agree and I'm sure all this US hypocrite is the beginning of something big in China and with U... moreThats an arrogant comment. China requires companies to share their technology in order to do business there, they are well known to steal intellectual property like no other. The US does not need to act like a snake in the grass in order to create technology. China has too many mouths to feed, and if half of the worlds companies that use Chinese labor decide to move their businesses elswhere, the unemployment rate in China would be sky high. China has nobody to blame but themselves. I wonder how the people in Hong Kong feel about your comment.....oh wait, they cant because China has scrapped the agreement they made with the UK giving Hong Kong autonomy.
Huawei's problem is that they were banned from using TSMC to make their chips. Unless there is a local fab with a cutting edge fabrication process that doesn't use US tech, Oppo may meet the same fate.

Snapdragons are more powerful but the Kirin flagship chips have better ai capabilities and the 5g performance is way ahead in terms of signal stability and real world speeds.

Noone can trust US anymore.
Anonymous, 28 May 2020TSMC fabrication way better than Samsung fabrication.Samsung eats TSMC for breakfast.
You only supporting TSMC coz Apple has chosen them for A14.

"the exclusive possession or control of the supply of or trade in a commodity or service"
Now please understand. even your statement stands that qualcomm has a monopoly in android world..
lets set an example between samsung and qualcomm dont you ever wonder why samsung cannot bring the exynos chipset in the U.S? its because samsung will have to pay the hefty price tag of royalties to qualcomm and besides we all that qualcomm is also one of the greedy companies out there.

They use it because, they are the king in the Android world. Flagships with SD865 at the same or a bit less of price of the HiSilicon crap with outdated chips.
I wonder why Google never considered making their own SoCs. They have a powerful OS in Android and with an optimized SoC they can really turn their Pixel phones into performance beasts.
LG Superfan, 28 May 2020In the long run in should cut cost but yeah their prices won't be going down cause we all know... moreNot only that but oppo won't sell less than Qualcomm and mediateck .so they will need to increase prices to pay the huge amount of money spent on manufacturing the soc. Mass production always lead to cheaper ptoducts

Anonymous, 28 May 2020So oppo phones will now be overpriced just like SamsungIn the long run in should cut cost but yeah their prices won't be going down cause we all know businesses are greedy
If they are doing it for safe side in case they get in the entitt list (which is unlikely) than unless the can create their own cores which unlike ARM don't use US technology it's kind of a waste and if they are doing it for competition than bring it ASAP and break down the Qualcomm monopoly
Anonymous, 28 May 2020TSMC fabrication way better than Samsung fabrication.Samsung set to invest 116 Billion dollars in its Fab till 2032, TSMC can barely invest 2 billion per year.
Samsung Foundaries are going to dominate for decades to comes like 20 years continuously,given the massive investment.
