WOBURN, Mass. -- November 5, 2013

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance
analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today announced
that HTC and Samsung are ramping SkyOne™, a highly customizable, fully
optimized front-end solution, in several of their recent smartphone launches.
The SkyOne™ platform, which integrates all RF and analog content between the
transceiver and antenna, reduces complexity, size and time-to-market for
customers with demanding architectures for advanced mobile applications.

Utilizing Skyworks’ full technology portfolio and advanced multichip module
capabilities including proprietary shielding and packaging, SkyOne™ is the
world’s first semiconductor device to condense multiband power amplifiers and
high throw switches along with all associated filtering, duplexing and control
functionality into a single, ultra-compact package – all in less than half the
area of the industry’s most advanced approach. At the same time, this
groundbreaking solution provides the world’s best linearity and power added
efficiency for smart RF integration.

“Skyworks is pleased that HTC, Samsung and other mobile device manufacturers
are leveraging the benefits offered by our family of SkyOne™ solutions,” said
Brad Byk, senior vice president, worldwide sales at Skyworks. “SkyOne™ offers
smartphone, tablet and ultrabook OEMs improved size, flexibility, and time to
market - - - all in an easy to implement and scalable platform that addresses
the dramatic increase in bands worldwide.”

HTC’s Desire 601 offers consumers 4G LTE speeds for extremely fast music and
video streaming with HD clarity. It leverages HTC’s BoomSound™ with dual
frontal stereo speakers for more immersive volume and richer audio, and
BlinkFeed™, a feature that automatically refreshes the home screen every time
you turn it on. The advanced camera in the Desire 601 features a photo
clustering function that unstills pictures for moving images.

About Samsung’s Galaxy Express 2

The Galaxy Express 2 is powered by Android 4.2, with a 1.7 GHz dual core
processor and 4.5 inch display. The new handset features a number of Samsung’s
smart functions such as Smart Stay – using advanced facial recognition to
