Qualcomm's future strategy
In addition to mobile phones, Qualcomm Snapdragon processors are also suitable for all VR devices. In fact, Facebook Oculus Go, Google Daydream and HTC Vive Pro are all equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. According to the data, the mainstream VR devices on the market are based on Qualcomm Snapdragon chips.
In May of this year, Qualcomm announced a new chipset called the Snapdragon XR1, which provides everything needed to power a VR headset, including a WIFI antenna.
Amon expects that once 5G is popularized, VR and AR will have a boom, and miniaturization of chips will make these devices look more ordinary. Through these AR glasses connected to the 5G network, you can check news and emails at any time, and you can also check how much gasoline is in your car's fuel tank.
Beyond the mobile market, Qualcomm envisions an Internet of Things (IoT) device world that can connect to the Internet as quickly and reliably as a mobile phone. The 5G trend opens new doors for connected devices to have an always-on Internet connection like a smartphone. Qualcomm has achieved some success in the wearables market, with 80% of Android smartwatches using Qualcomm's Snapdragon chips.
Amon also said that Qualcomm can expand its business in the industrial Internet of Things, powering automation machinery and other large equipment, especially if the successful acquisition of NXP, this plan will be smoother.
