Apple Files for a Foldable Phone Patent

Three suits filed by Apple and Qualcomm on busy day for US court

Unless the two settle their differences out of court, it may take years until we hear final verdicts in these patent lawsuits - and these trials are bound to become even more complicated.

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. But it has now revised its answer.

Qualcomm then countersued Apple in the summer for infringing on its battery saving patents. In that suit, Apple said Qualcomm's behavior was akin to "a common patent troll". Apple is seeking damages for the alleged patent infringement, but the company did not reveal how much it hopes to win. In its filing, Apple alleges that Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 and 820 processors, which power phones from Samsung and Google's Pixel phones, infringe on those patents. Apple alleges it owns at least eight battery life patents that Qualcomm has violated. Google and Samsung are not mentioned in Apple's counterclaims. Apple's patents cover technologies that help a processor draw as little power as possible and allow a processor to quickly and efficiently increase and decrease power usage.

Black Friday Background Checks Soar To Record High
A total of 26 people were killed November 5 when a gunman opened fire on people at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. However, sales and slashed prices may not be the only thing drawing in firearms customers this year.

The latter filed its patent breach case at the same time it submitted a complaint with the International Trade Commission asking to stop the import of Apple iPhones that have Intel Corp chips due to the alleged patent violations.

In January, Apple sued Qualcomm for almost $1 billion in patent royalty rebates that Qualcomm allegedly withheld from Apple. In a connected case, Qualcomm charged the contract manufacturers that create Apple's devices, however Apple associated with the team to defend them.

It is purely a coincidence that many of Qualcomm's chips find their way into Android smartphones.
