Qualcomm Inc on Monday said it was working with a group of Android smartphone companies to bring satellite communications capabilities to its devices.
The San Diego, California-based company, which is the world's largest supplier of chips for connecting mobile phones to wireless data networks, said it is working with Honor, owned by Lenovo Motorola, Northing, OPPO, Vivo and Xiaomi Corp. on device development.
Satellite communication allows you to send and receive data in remote or rural areas where other telecommunications networks are not available.
Qualcomm announced that it added capabilities to its chips earlier this year.
