Mo Lenkov points out that although Qualcomm and apple cases are still in court, he thinks the legal milestone coming this summer will bring pressure to the two companies. He said: either through court decisions, or in the way I think everyone wants to reach a settlement. If we are lucky, we hope to resolve these disputes by the end of this year. When asked whether Apple CEO Tim Cook (TimCook) was about to testify in the lawsuit in June, it offered a special incentive for short-term reconciliation, morensv said: I think, in all cases, people dont like their head on the legal risk. As you get closer to legal milestones, Qualcomm and Apples views are consistent. I think the environment suits us better to solve disputes. Moruncov said that Qualcomm and Apple Corp are still actively communicating, and Apples response is very consistent with our views and optimism, and we will be able to finish the work in this fiscal year. There are too many reasons to solve this problem. Mo Lenkov deliberately referred to the word many as money, implying that the dispute could at least involve 1 billion dollars. Although Qualcomms patent licensing terms have attracted the attention of us and foreign governments, the core issue is the rate paid by the licensee, especially if its authorization fee is too high. Previously, every cell phone maker had to pay a part of the price of each cell phone to Qualcomm, allowing Qualcomm to earn much more than $200 on a $500 phone, even if the two phones were all Qualcomm Corp products. Apple complained that its licensing fees for Qualcomm payments raised the price of mobile phones, though the new high-end features did not come from Qualcomms innovation. Under the newly announced licensing strategy, Qualcomm will set the basic price of each mobile phone at $400, so that cheap phones can pay lower fees. The main authorized Samsung has obviously accepted the new move of Qualcomm, which will reduce hundreds of millions of dollars in the forecast of licensing fees to Qualcomm. Mo Lenkov said: we are really studying very important technologies. He acknowledged that the US government has recently taken some measures to protect the company from hostile takeover by foreign rival Broadcom. On the other hand, we think this is a very valuable technology, and we need to ensure that we can transfer this value to our shareholders, he said. This is where the differences lie. Whenever we need to discuss with the licensee, Even in the current era of LTE networks, Apple has not stopped using Qualcomms modem on iPhone. FastCompany reported that Apple has revised its plan and will not exclude Qualcomm from the upcoming 2018 year iPhone. It is expected to use at least 30% of the high pass modems, and if rival Intel (Intel) fails to provide all the modems needed for apple, the apple may be more dependent on Qualcomm. Similarly, Qualcomm is also considered to be leading Intel in the engineering and production of the 5G modem, which is very important for the next generation of iPhone, which began in 2019 or 2020.
