qualcomm inc (QCOM) Key Developments

Qualcomm Inc. to Lay Off Employees at an Office in Andover, Massachusetts

Qualcomm Inc. announced that it is undergoing major downsizing that will impact dozens of employees at an office in Andover, Massachusetts. The company said that it plans to lay off 65 employees at its office at 100 Burtt Road in Andover beginning November 20, 2015 as part of a major restructuring. Similar notices have been issued in California and Colorado, but do not reflect all the reductions because they address only certain locations and relate only to full-time employees.

Qualcomm Cuts 1,314 Jobs in San Diego

Qualcomm slashed 1,314 jobs in San Diego and an undisclosed number elsewhere in the U.S. as it faces slower growth in the maturing smartphone market. The company outlined a cost-cutting plan in July to trim its 31,300 employee global workforce by 15%, about 4,700 jobs. The layoffs would make up the bulk of the local job cuts. The restructuring aims to trim $1.4 billion in expenses and is expected to be completed by September 2016.

Qualcomm Launches Two New Snapdragon Processors for Smartphones

Qualcomm announced that it has launched two new Snapdragon processors for smartphones. Snapdragon 617 will be available in devices by the end of 2015 and the Snapdragon 430 will be available in the first half of 2016. Separately, the company unveiled a next-generation fast charging technology called Quick Charge 3.0 technology, which allows users to charge a phone from zero to 80% in about 35 minutes, compared to devicese without Quick Charge that normally require almost an hour and a half of charging time. Quick Charge 3.0 will feature as an option on Snapdragon 617, 430, and other processors.
