iPhone X Could get ban in USA if Qualcomm should win their lawsuit against Apple

How the might are falling, In recent time Apple has announced its lawsuit against Qualcomm.The Snapdragon chip maker has filed its own legal complaint against Apple on the new iPhone X, this could see iPhone X sales banned in the United States.

Qualcomm levied a complaint about patent infringement to the US International Trade Commission (ITC) noting that several of Apple’s smartphones include the iPhone 7 and iPhone X violate five of its patent.

Not fewer than 16 patent violations Qualcomm raised against Apple on November 29 lawsuit, covering a gamut of technologies including radio-frequency transceivers, depth-based imagery, an energy saving memory array and even on-off power phases.

All this will depend on the ITC decision to act on Qualcomm’s complaint, imports, and thus sales, of the iPhone X and other Apple products could be banned in the US, if Qualcomm were to win.
This may cause the company to take further action against Apple with other agencies around the world who are found of patent infringement. China has already taken the move earlier on the ban of iPhone X.

Lastly, this isn’t the first time Qualcomm has raised an ITC complaint against Apple. Earlier this August, the Snapdragon creator raised an issue with six patent violations that led to an investigation, but nothing else thus far.

With this in mind, it could take weeks before an investigation begins and months for action on the complaint.
