5:05 pm
it is affecting pretty much most of our products current live. emily: the c.e.o. of qualcomm joined us to talk about the company's latest republican -- earnings result. >> we know what in company is capable of. we win based on technology. we have an incredible engineering center culture and we see demand for technology across a number of markets and i think it's largely played out as we expected and we're very happy with the performance of the company, very happy how he 1/2 gaited the sleeve chains and more importantly, we have growth opportunities across a number of spaces. emily: how much of this is boom
5:06 pm
and demand for qualcomm products and how much is the splay chain? >> we talked at least two or three earnings calls ago when we said we saw the supply crisis, we took action early. we moved the source of our products. we've one of the few products if not the only, that actual movemented the source as the leading semiconductsor -- snapdragon. we've lunched multiple products result. we put capacity expansion in place. we made cheryl in our splicers and as a result we've indicated that we will be material supply improvements coming at the end of the year. that's kind of reflective for q1.
5:07 pm
supply, it's yes, we expect it, we see improvement. it's a lot more planed with demand. it's too short. we would ship more if we had more supply and as we enter 2022, we'll see the end of the supply imbalance demand is going to beat supply for the rest of the champions year. emily: at that point you're saying there's going to be an end of the supply and balance just for equal and if so, how much does this drag on for other industries? others are saying this could go on for years. would you agree? >> that is correct. i have seen reports that companies probably will still be seeing shortages of supplys in 2023. that's not the case for us. you can find still pockets of areas that are still going to
5:08 pm
have more demand than supply but large lip we'll see a lot more balance between supply and demand. emily: you mentioned andrade and high-end phones being in demand. would you say in china, for example, that andrade is growing faster than i.o.s.? >> what we see right now is an opportunity for qualcomm to grow much faster than the market. a mobile market, which is a mature market, still grows single digit but we saw an opportunity for premium and hyph qualcomm and we seep incredible high demand from companies and that is driving a lot of the growth and driving growth faster than the market it. there are factor. i think the samsung -- the flip,
5:09 pm
higher speed to 5g and consumer right now are becoming even more dependent on smart phones. they want higher paint. that is driving the growth in q1, which is traditionally that very high quarter when we sell mold emphasis to one of out -- our cuppers. most of the growth in the quarter is coming in the an droid. emily: we tear care about phones but everybody seems to be daring a lot about the metaverse right now. do you think it will be as big as mark zuckerberg seems to think it will be and what will qualcomm's role be in it? >> that's a great question. well investedo a decade in fund then technologies to enable
5:10 pm
virtuality. we've been talking about xr for a long time and the way i see it is the success of oculus, especially with quest. that success drove facebook to think about even changing the company name and believing in the metaverse. we're the company enabling those advices but even if you have different versions of what the medaverse is going to look like across the different systems. what you're seeing over all those advices is quamme come. there have -- there shall over 50 device and is all of those have qualcomm snap dragon x.r. yes, the could be as big as phones, to answer your question. glad connection of physical and digital space will be a reality.
5:11 pm
i have don't necessarily believe that you're going to spend your life on digital space but is it's going to be a daily thing of our normal lives to connect to those paces pleasure laces. i would encourage all of us to carry glasses as well. we're very excited about it. >> qualcomm's -- coming you have. coming up, when does seay she think the shortage will evidence and the melta verse it will begin? ♪ emily: teaming up with

5:15 pm
bring together very intellectual and mixed reality together with all of the collaboration we're doing now. i think we have new examines expectations of what hype is like post pan deckic. it's an opportunity where you need high-performance c.p.u.'s and processors and g.p.u.'s and in learning and visualization and bringing all that together. we really do look agent the end to end use cases and working with our partners on making that happen. we view tremendous opportunity in hype-performance computing going forward. emily: i'm curious why we've seeing um broading -- broaden out considering it's been that focus that has served a.m.d. so well. >> we're excited about the service center overall, emily and if you look at all of the
5:16 pm
expansion, it's really an area of special growth and you see manier in many and machine specialization. know question our data center as much as processors have done exceptry well but the fact is there are these large-use cases around high-performance computing and a.i. and those need g.p.u.'s and we can put them together in a very first quarter way in the system. we announced today that we're broadening our offerings to include a cloud focus processor line. and, again, this is just an expansion of computing allowing and enabling us to one, invest more and two, try to tailor and partner with what we think our customers and partners will need going forward. >> how do you see your next
5:17 pm
design for data chips cutting into market share for folks like intel and users of arm technology that are also trying to break? >> the key in this market frankly is execution. strong execution generation after generation. our current generation, the processors are fantastic. we just found our third earnings and we doubled our service processors as well as our data processor scale. that deals you about the momentum we have. it builds on the capabilities we have with milan. we added features and what that should mean to our customers is

5:26 pm
the computer and then the pervasive employment of semiconductors. $74 billion and we're putting $52 billion in that pervasive deployment of semiconductor. i would argue that g.a.f. has the most advantagessed technology when it comes to power management or power efficiency we need connectivity and power efficiently and we are the leading edge previewedder. >> the stock was down today. a massive i.p.o. is there something you don't think investors or getting? >> not at all.
5:27 pm
we have a consistent field and we'll continue to be rewarded for that. >> coming up next, a one-on-one with lisa su in a special edition of bloomberg technology 1.0. you don't want to miss it. this is bloomberg. ♪
