Snapdragon chips power most Android devices, as well as most non-Apple smartphones.
The latest version — the powerhouse Snapdragon 835 — contains a staggering 3 billion transistors, yet promises to use less energy and thus lengthen battery life.
The Snapdragon line now includes not just processors but complete chipsets to handle all features of a mobile phone, tablet, computer or similar wireless device.
“Time flies when you never stop innovating,” the San Diego-based company said in a tweet about the Snapdragon anniversary.
The anniversary comes a day after Qualcomm’s board rejected a $130 billion buyout offer from Broadcom, which is seeking to dominate the market for wireless semiconductors.
