Qualcomm will own 100% of the Samsung Galaxy S and Apple iPhone market share next year
In another report, Strategy Analytics claims that Qualcomm’s dependence on Apple and Samsung Electronics has once again become the focus. Qualcomm will have 100% of the Galaxy S and iPhone market share by 2023, and Qualcomm will benefit from this dual monopoly. However, it is now expected to maintain the current supply level. This also means that Apple’s 2023 models are not expected to use a self-developed baseband design.
Additionally, Qualcomm CFO Akash Palkhiwala confirmed on the earnings call that Qualcomm has moved from a 75% (chipset) share of the Galaxy S22 series to a global share. The financial report shows that Qualcomm’s fiscal year 2022 achieved revenue of $44.200 billion, a YoY increase of 32%. Its net profit was $12.936 billion, a YoY increase of 43%. Qualcomm expects revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2023 to reach $9.2-10 billion.
