Hyatt Hotels to reduce single-use plastic by 2021

  Hyatt Hotels to reduce single-use plastic by 2021 Following the lead of major hotel chains like Marriott and InterContinental Hotels Group, Hyatt Hotels has become the latest group to announce plans to reduce single-use plastics within the chain.  Hyatt, which owns brands like Park Hyatt, Andaz, Hyatt Regency, Thompson Hotels and The Unbound Collection, has pledged to reduce single-use plastic water bottles by June 2021 throughout its properties around the world.

Qualcomm said it expects 175 million to 225 million 5 G smartphones to be shipped in 2020, signaling a strong year ahead. The company said sales in the first fiscal quarter would be in the range of .4 billion to .2 billion, even though global shipments of its chips will be 145 million to 165 million

(Reuters) - Qualcomm Inc expects global smartphone makers to ship 450 million 5G handsets in 2021 and another 750 million in 2022, the world's largest supplier of mobile phone chips said on Tuesday.

Going by Qualcomm's own previous forecast of 200 million 5G devices for next year, the 2021 forecast suggests 125% growth from 2020.

Qualcomm said 5G adoption will be faster than 4G due to the timing of commercialization of the technology in China and availability of chipsets across different price tiers.

Analysts attach importance to occasional smartphone estimate figures from Qualcomm, given its close relationship with phone makers.

Next-generation 5G smartphones are expected to make tasks like watching videos or playing games on mobile networks as good as or better than on a Wi-Fi connection.

Qualcomm and its rivals stand to benefit from faster 5G adoption because the phones will require more chips to gain the speed boost.
