It is revealed  that Qualcomm and Samsung has been using NVidia patented technologies without a license in Samsung’s various mobile devices including their new smartphone Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Edge.   NVidia said that Samsung Company is making devices with graphics technology from Qualcomm, Britain’s ARM holding that are infringed on its patents. NVidia Chief Executive Jen Hsun Huang said on a conference call that the Samsung Company is using their technology for free in their devices today and they are now selling numerous smartphones around the world. Samsung Company on this remark told in a statement that they will take all the necessary actions against NVIDIA’s claims. NVidia Company is asking the US International Trade Commission to prevent shipments of Samsung devices which contains ARM’s Mali or Qualcomm’s graphics technology. NVidia is a famous name in leading graphics technology for high end computers but has struggled a lot to expand into smartphones.
