Snapdragon 845 appears in Qualcomm's ITC filing seeking a ban on U.S. iPhone imports

While the Samsung Galaxy S9 is rumored to be the first handset to use the Snapdragon 845, LG said back in May that it will use the chip inside its 2018 flagship model. This year, LG had to use 2016's Snapdragon 821 on the LG G6 since Samsung had tied up early production of the Snapdragon 835 for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+.
While the Snapdragon 845 has not been officially announced, it did manage to show up in a document filed at the ITC by Qualcomm for its complaint against Apple. The chip designer is asking for a ban prohibiting iPhone units from being imported into the U.S. As part of the documentation, Qualcomm provided a list of patented chipsets including the SDM845, which is the Snapdragon 845.
Both sides have filed lawsuits against each other. Apple claims that Qualcomm has demanded royalties that are too high and are undeserved. Qualcomm accuses Apple of interfering "with Qualcomm’s long-standing agreements with Qualcomm licensees that manufacture iPhones and iPads for Apple." Apple allegedly told contract manufacturers like Foxconn and Pegatron not to pay royalties to.Qualcomm
iPhone banned in the US - that would be an awesome even to witness.

Remember last time Samsung had ITC to agree with them and got iphone banned from US import to the state? Obama vetoed the result. I highly doubt Trump is going to let a foreign company get US company banned from importing into US
