In addition, Qualcomm is offering a discount for a supply of chips season exclusively for iPhone.

In the end, instead of the payment of 778 million USD, Qualcomm was fined only $ 93 billion USD the company pledged to invest $ 700 million in Taiwan over the next five years. Furthermore, the Taiwanese authorities to buy Qualcomm to conduct business as usual by charging a fee based on the price of each smart phone.

However, the company will be forced America to submit two annual reports to the Commission Taiwan to ensure the integrity of the deals to license the patent, and there will be also a need to provide patent licenses to its competitors before competing against in court.
