What's This Settlement About?

An estimated $5 Billion class action lawsuit that affects 250 Million Americans has been filed against Qualcomm, an American processor chip manufacturer, which owns patents critical to widely used 3G, 4G, LTE, and 5G mobile technology. The lawsuit claims that Qualcomm allegedly violated state and federal antitrust laws in the United States, harming competition and directly causing consumers to overpay for cell phones for years.

Qualcomm potentially engaged in anti-competitive conduct that raised the price consumers paid for mobile phones. The cell phones involved in this litigation include phones with CDMA and LTE technologies. This includes phones manufactured and sold by all of the top smartphone manufacturers and companies such as Apple, Samsung, LG, Motorola, and ZTE. Below is a list of the manufacturers involved in this class action lawsuit. A full list of all smartphone models included in this class action can be found on the class action administration claim form website (see at the bottom of this page).
