How Our Power-Efficient Technologies Benefit Smartphone Users and the Earth

Qualcomm CFO Akash Palkhiwala discusses the company’s mobile origins and why it matters

Consider how much we rely on our smartphones every day, from texting, listening to podcasts, and taking photos to ordering goods online, streaming video, and using GPS navigation – there’s a lot of processing happening in a relatively small device. And all that processing consumes battery energy. Yet, most people’s smartphones serve them all day on a single charge. And many of those phones are enabled by power-efficient solutions created by Qualcomm Technologies.

Power efficiency is in our DNA
