Qualcomm (QCOM) managed to get 6 chips in the U.S. version of Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy S4, per iFixit's teardown: the high-end APQ8064 app processor, a 4G baseband chip, an audio codec chip, an RF transceiver (beating out SIMO), and 2 power management ICs; the U.K. version uses a Snapdragon 600 baseband/app processor. Also found: a MXIM microcontroller, an SIMG video transmitter, a SWKS 2G power amplifier module, a BRCM NFC chip (likely to go with a combo chip), ATML and SYNA touch controllers, and Toshiba (TOSBF.PK) NAND flash (previous).

    I think the major point is why this iws providing higher guidance by QCOM. The rest of the business must be slowing.

    Well Qualcomm may be underestimating their guidance too. Everybody thinks that the Galaxy s4 will be a huge hit, but perhaps, for the purposes of caution when providing financial guidance, Qualcomm is not assuming that it will be an enormous hit and are providing more conservative estimates.

     

    If the S4 is a huge hit and continues to be a hit into the Christmas season, I guarantee you Qualcomm will be beating/increasing their guidance.
