  • IPhone X Banned? Qualcomm Files Lawsuit Asking For iPhone Ban

Qualcomm filed the complaint in the US district Court for the Southern District of California and alleges that Apple is infringing on five patents, with four of them originating from Palm. In other words, the AT&T and T-Mobile variants of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X are the phones that Qualcomm wants the court to ban.

With this in mind it could take weeks before an investigation begins and months for action on the complaint. The complaint sought a ban on Apple's handsets that are powered by chips from rival manufacturer, Intel, based on the said patent violations. In July, Qualcomm accused Apple of illegally using Qualcomm tech related to saving battery power.

In its new patent infringement cases, the chipmaker alleges that Apple infringes upon 16 of its patents related to bandwidth technology, power saving, photo editing and technology from dual-camera setups.

"You can't react that quickly to file lawsuits", he explained. In the complaint, Qualcomm specifically alleges that Apple copied the operating system's "cards" design interface. In the suit, Apple says Qualcomm is similar to "a common patent troll".

The Apple patents involve ensuring each part of a phone's processor draws only the minimum power needed, turning off parts of the processor when they are not needed and making sleep and wake functions work better.

Prior to this development, on November 29th, Apple sued Qualcomm over Snapdragon 800 and 820 processors.

Qualcomm has also filed a claim with the United States International Trade Commission in which the company asked for imports of the iPhone X that uses modems produced by Intel to be banned from sale in the U.S. It offers exciting new features such as an all-screen OLED display, Face ID technology, wireless charging, Portrait Lighting, and Animoji. Over the four-day shopping period, buyers purchased about 6 million iPhone X units. That includes the latest iPhone 8 duo as well as the more in demand iPhone X now on offer from AT&T and T-Mobile.

Olson expects Apple to release three OLED iPhones next year and calls the devices the iPhone X's "offspring". Apple has since ramped up production to improve the availability.
