Comprehensive review of iPhone 15 Pro series

Over the past 72 hours, we have been experiencing and reviewing the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max around the clock.

We have conducted comprehensive tests on changes in imaging, C port, performance, memory, etc. that you may be concerned about. In the process, we also discovered many details that Apple didn’t tell you.

Huawei takes second place in China’s smartphone market

According to Yuanchuang Digital Intelligence Online, data from authoritative market research institutions exclusively obtained from the supply chain shows that for W36 (9.4-9.10), Huawei won the second place in the Chinese smartphone market with a sales volume of 17%.

Although it ranks second, this is a sales share achieved by Huawei under well-known pressure, and it is only 0.2% behind the number one Honor (17.2%).

Supply chain people predict that by W37 (9.11-9.17), Huawei is expected to achieve the number one sales market share. This is particularly valuable for Huawei, which is under heavy pressure.

From August 29th to September 8th, Huawei will pre-sell three models: Mate60 Pro/Pro+ and Mate

When asked if he was a "Follow of Fruit", Ren Zhengfei replied: "It is very happy to have a teacher, who can have opportunities to learn and make comparisons. If from these perspectives, I am a fan of Fruit, it would not be an exaggeration." ”.

Musk considers charging all X users

Musk said in a live broadcast with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday that X (formerly Twitter) will start charging users a small monthly fee to combat bots and spam on the platform.

It was unclear whether the remark was a true intention or an impromptu speech.

Some people believe that Musk may launch an entry-level X Premium (formerly Twitter Blue) subscription service to achieve this goal, and the current X subscription plan is $8 per month.

Currently, the $8 premium subscription allows users to edit posts and create longer texts of more than 280 characters. Additionally, subscribers will see a verification mark next to their name.

Li Xiang: Li Auto has no plans to develop mobile phones

Yesterday, Li Xiang, CEO of Li Auto, posted on Weibo: "Because talents from some mobile phone brands have joined us, many investors and users have asked whether Li Auto will make mobile phones? The answer is that there is no plan."

Li wanted to say: "In the past eight years, at least 15% of the teams including R&D, operations, and intelligence have talent from mobile phone brands, so it is not a recent addition."

According to Li Auto’s official Weibo account, last week (9.11-9.17), Li Auto’s weekly sales reached 9,100 units. As of September 17, Li Auto’s monthly sales had reached 20,100 units.

my country's full bit rate wireless audio codec standard L2HC released

Yesterday, my country's first high-definition wireless audio codec standard L2HC was officially released at the 2023 GAS Audio Technology Summit.

L2HC is the world's first unified architecture, full-bitrate wireless audio codec standard, leading the world in many aspects such as transmission rate, anti-interference, and compatibility.

The new L2HC standard extends the audio transmission bit rate to 64K~1920Kbps and supports 96kHz/24bit high-definition audio transmission. It is currently the only audio codec standard that exceeds the CD-level lossless music transmission bit rate requirements.

According to reports, Huawei FreeBuds Pro 3 first supports the new L2HC intelligent lossless audio codec standard, which can stably transmit lossless audio up to 1.5Mbps.

 DeepMind co-founder: The next stage of artificial intelligence is interactive robots

Mustafa Suleyman, co-founder of Google DeepMind, said in an interview: "Generative AI is just a stage."

"The next step is interactive AI, where robots can call other software and people to complete the tasks you set for them."

Interactive AI can be more flexible and can take actions on its own if given permission, Suleyman said.

He added: "This is a very profound moment in the history of technology that I think a lot of people underestimate."

Suleyman has previously predicted that within five years everyone will have an AI assistant. His company, Inflection AI, launched chatbot Pi in May as a ChatGPT competitor focused on personal advice and conversations.

However, there are also concerns that the generative AI boom may be exaggerated. Visits to the ChatGPT website fell for the third consecutive month in August, according to data from web analytics firm Similarweb.

New product

iPhone 16 Pro will be equipped with a 5x optical zoom lens

Apple supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that although the current iPhone 15 Pro Max only has a telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom, next year’s iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will both have this feature.

He said that the quadruple reflective prism structure of the iPhone 15 Pro Max is the biggest bottleneck in the mass production of the device.

Therefore, Apple urgently increased the specifications supplied by Largan Light to make up for the lack of production capacity of LG Innotek.

Ming-Chi Kuo said that due to this change, Largan has urgently expanded the production line of quadruple reflection prism lenses in order to meet the strong demand for iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Yu Chengdong previously said that compared with traditional wireless connections, Star Flash’s power consumption is reduced to 60%, the data transmission rate is 6 times, the delay is reduced to 1/30, and the number of connections is 10 times.

After the Mate60 and Mate X5 mobile phones were sold before they were released, the new tablet may become the biggest highlight of this autumn conference.

With a total investment of 1.5 billion, Starbucks China Coffee Creative Industrial Park was completed and put into operation

Yesterday, Starbucks China Coffee Innovation Industrial Park was officially completed and put into operation in Kunshan, Jiangsu Province, marking China's first large-scale integration of the "from green beans to coffee" vertical industry chain in Starbucks' global markets.

With a total investment of RMB 1.5 billion, the industrial park is Starbucks' largest investment in building a coffee production and logistics base in China. It will also be Starbucks' greenest and energy-saving production base in the world.

Starbucks China announced in March 2020 that it would invest in building an industrial park in Kunshan, Jiangsu.

The entire park covers a total area of ​​approximately 80,000 square meters, and its core components include a coffee roasting factory, an integrated logistics center, and a coffee journey experience center.

Its functions cover coffee bean importing, roasting, packaging, storage, and logistics, as well as providing coffee-themed tours and coffee-related training.

Facing the increasingly competitive domestic coffee market, Starbucks believes that it is still full of opportunities.

Starbucks Global CEO Laxman Narasimhan said in an interview with iFaner:

"China's current annual per capita coffee consumption is 12 cups, and Shanghai's is higher. But this data is 200 cups in Japan and 380 cups in the United States."

"We welcome competition because competition can expand the audience of coffee as a whole, let more people know about coffee, and attract people who traditionally drink tea to also fall in love with coffee."
