Chinese shipments of application processors for smartphones drops 4% quarter-to-quarter
Qualcomm's AP numbers were negatively impacted by poor demand for its reference designs for entry-level and mid-range handsets. Qualcomm is just starting to offer reference designs for Windows Phone and Firefox OS, and it will take some time for this to show up in sales. As we noted on Monday, ABI Research expects 67% of all smartphones by 2019, to be based on chipset makers reference designs.
HiSilicon Technologies, which is owned by Huawei and is used on most of its phones, and NVIDIA, both had lower shipments of AP chips from the fourth quarter of 2013 to the first quarter of 2014.
