The unit still exists and yes, it's legit and those people are gone. Not moved to other units within Qualcomm.

Qualcomm gave a statement on this, confirming they were fired.

“Qualcomm conducted a small reduction of our full-time and temporary workforce in certain areas of the company,” a spokesperson told TechCrunch. “While this activity impacts a very small percentage of our workforce, we know a workforce reduction of any size affects not only those employees who are part of the reduction, but their families, co-workers and the community. We recognize this and have offered affected employees supportive severance packages to reduce the impact of this transition on them.”
