Qualcomm revenue from QCT segment increased 10.2% YoY in FY Q2 2020, to $4,100 million. The growth was primarily driven by the increase in QCT equipment and services revenues generated from the sales of MSM, Radio Frequency, Power Management, and wireless connectivity chipsets.
On the other hand, Qualcomm revenue from QTL segment declined 4.46% YoY during the second quarter of fiscal 2020, amounting to $1,072 million. That’s representing approximately 20.6% of the company’s total revenue, globally. It is important to note that this segment revenues for Q1 and Q2 2020 include the royalties from Apple and its contract manufactures.
Qualcomm revenue from QSI segment also declined a huge 89.8% YoY, from $98 million in FY Q2 2019 to just $10 million in FY Q2 2020. The decline in QSI equipment and services revenues declined primarily due to the increase in full impairment losses of Qualcomm’s investment in OneWeb who filed for bankruptcy in the second quarter of fiscal 2020.
