There are reports that LG is developing its own chips, and Sony will release new flagships with A15 quad core chips and not Qualcomm's Snapdragon Pro.

So all 4 out of 5 biggest OEMs may not use Qualcomm's chips and that's dangerous for its business, I can see HTC will make its own chips too one day if SS A15 quadcore chips again beat Qualcomm Krait quadcore.

wouldnt it be cool to own a qualcomm smartphone powered by their own chip the snapdragon s4 pro?

I bet it would ;)

they should consider making their own phone soon and literally call it the "snapdragon sx" (the X for whatever chipset number were on like s4, s5, etc.....) bet it would sell millions!

Years ago, Qualcomm did make their own phones. Of course that was before the smartphone rage, but several of their products were very good. That unit was sold to Kyocera. Qualcomm has a small manufacturing initiative with its Mirasol technology, but the goal there too is to move to a licensing model.
