The patent dispute between Qualcomm and Apple are still far from complete, but it has a certain shift. This week’s judge of the international trade Commission (ITC) Thomas Pender (Thomas Pender) came to the conclusion that the iPhone violated one of the patents Qualcomm. However, he rejected a request by Qualcomm to block import of devices.

According to Pender, in his ruling against the ban was influenced by “factors of public interest”. The other judges will check this solution and if they leave him in power, Qualcomm would lose an important trump card, which it could be used in reaching an agreement with Apple.

Apple, of course, took the judge’s decision with enthusiasm.

In turn, the lawyer of Qualcomm don Rosenberg (Don Rosenberg) praised the judge’s decision: “it makes No sense to encourage the violation by refusing to ban imports.”

The company Japan Display, which is Apple’s supplier as claimed, this month began to reduce the production of LCD panels for smartphones iPhone XR. This is because sales of this model were below expectations.

The reduction is approximately 30% compared with the November level. It will lead to a deterioration of the performance of the company, which was considering a contract with Apple to supply displays for iPhone XR as a lifeboat, able to pull her out of the strip in annual losses continuing for four years.

According to a report from TrendForce on the production of smartphones this year, the total volume for the third quarter increased by 8% compared with the second quarter and amounted to approximately 380 million units. This growth is attributed to the gradual recovery of demand and creating inventory in connection with the release of new devices and the coming seasonal upturn in demand. Although the role of the main generators of sales analysts recognize the new devices from Apple and Huawei, the demand for iPhone models XR XS and XS Max was lower than expected. This gives analysts reason to predict that the total volume of production in the fourth quarter will be about the same as in the third, that is, about 380 million units.

Analysts say that the smartphone market has reached maturity, and manufacturers are increasingly difficult to motivate consumers to replace a recently purchased device since the original no significant improvement.

The largest smartphone manufacturer in the world is Samsung. In the third quarter the South Korean company holds 19.6% of the market. The share of Huawei, in second place, equal to 14.6%. Third place belongs to Apple, which occupies 12.4% of the market.

Analysts believe that in the fourth quarter the balance of power may change. Apple will increase its share to 19.7%, ahead of Samsung, whose share will remain unchanged, that is equal to 19.6%. Third place will take Huawei, and its share will not change too. In other words, Apple will increase the share at the expense of companies outside the top three. This, in particular, the company Xiaomi, whose share will be reduced from 8.3% to 7.4%, and the company OPPO Vivo and whose shares, equal to 8.4% and 8.0%, reduced to 6.4% and 6.3%, respectively. The combined share of all other manufacturers is also reduced — from 28.7% to 26.1%.
