Thread regarding Qualcomm Inc. layoffs

Licensing fees capped at $13 for $1000 phone

If it's capped, Qcom is not charging a percentage of the whole device. And Apple paid them $7.50.

Qualcomm kept the chips flowing because otherwise the customers would have been forced to find a second source (like Apple did). Once that happens, Qualcomm would be OUT of those devices forever. Then I t’s a harder negotiation with less leverage and bringing those customers back for future devices is more challenging. It’s not a selfless act, it’s purely about self preservation.

Some of the companies who've stopped paying @Qualcomm during licensing disputes are: @Apple (2 years), Vivo (over a year), @Oppo (over a year), @Huawei, Gonell says. @BlackBerry was underpaying he says. But Qualcomm kept shipping all of them chips. #FTCQCOM

This statement is as the writer under stood it not in its actuality. The percentage is capped at the transfer price from manufacturing to retail which is less than 400 dollars.
