iPhone 16 Pro will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon X75 and is expected to support 5G-A

According to MacRumors, the iPhone 16 pro series will be equipped with Qualcomm’s latest 5G baseband, providing the device with a faster and more power-saving 5G connection.

In a research report from Haitong International Securities this week, analyst Jeff Pu said that the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon X75 modems, while the two standard models retain the X70 modem

Apple typically uses the same modem in all iPhone models of each generation, except for the iPhone SE models, so this will be a change in its strategy.

Snapdragon X75 was released in February this year. By aggregating four TDD carrier channels, operators can make full use of their different spectrum assets and achieve higher data transmission rates.

X75 is the world's first 5G Advanced-ready modem and radio frequency system. The so-called 5G Advanced, also known as 5.5G, is the transition stage between 5G and 6G.

5G Advanced will include artificial intelligence and machine learning enhancements to improve 5G performance and extend 5G to other types of devices and use cases.

Microsoft ordered to pay an additional $28.9 billion in taxes

Recently, Microsoft said in a supervisory filing that it received a proposed adjustment notice from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regarding an additional $28.9 billion in taxes.

Microsoft said the dispute involves the company's profit distribution among different countries and regions between 2004 and 2013.

The company said it had paid up to $10 billion in taxes and was not reflected in the adjustments proposed by the IRS. Microsoft stated in the document:

Microsoft disagrees with the proposed changes and will appeal to the IRS, a process expected to take years.

We believe we have complied with IRS rules and paid the taxes we owe in the United States and around the world.

OpenAI plans a major update that could reduce developer costs by 20 times

OpenAI plans to roll out a major update for developers next month that will make it cheaper and faster to build software applications based on its artificial intelligence models, sources told Reuters.

The updates include adding in-memory storage capabilities to its development tools for working with artificial intelligence models. In theory, this will reduce costs for application manufacturers by up to 20 times.

Businesses can create applications more cheaply by remembering conversations for queries, which can significantly reduce the amount of usage developers need to pay for.

Currently, you can pay 10 cents to process a page of a document using GPT-4, depending on the length and complexity of the input and output, according to pricing on the OpenAI website.

In addition, OpenAI also plans to launch new tools such as vision functions to enable developers to build applications with the ability to analyze and describe images. Potential application scenarios range from entertainment to medicine.

The new features are expected to be launched at OpenAI's first developer conference in San Francisco on November 6, and are designed to encourage companies to use OpenAI's technology to build artificial intelligence-driven chatbots and autonomous agents, people familiar with the matter said.

The new M7 from Wenjie is a hit, and the Thalys factory is urgently recruiting a large number of employees

Recently, Yu Chengdong, Huawei's Managing Director, CEO of Terminal BG, and Chairman of Smart Car Solutions, posted on WeChat Moments that from September 12 to October 6, when the new M7 was released, more than 50,000 Dading units were sold for the first time.

The large number of orders has put considerable delivery pressure on Cyrus. According to China Times, in order to improve delivery capabilities, the Thalys factory is currently recruiting a large number of employees and has started 24-hour production.

At the same time, in order to prevent quality defects caused by rush work, Huawei has also sent its own engineers to the Thalys factory to regularly participate in vehicle quality inspections. Thalys’ live broadcast platform has also started live broadcasts for consumers to watch the live production of vehicles.

While the new M7 is selling like hot cakes, the Wenjie M9 also started blind ordering on September 25, with a pre-sale price of 500,000-600,000 yuan.

According to Yu Chengdong, as of October 7, the cumulative blind order orders for Wenjie M9 have reached 10,450, and 8,040 orders have been retained. In order to ensure the product quality of M9, Cyrus is also conducting trial production in the newly built third factory.

The person in charge of the Xiaomi community responded to Lei Jun’s account ban: He was accidentally killed while cleaning up the historical violation account and has been restored.

On October 10th, netizen @不小小白 posted a picture saying that Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun’s account was determined to be illegal by the Xiaomi community, his avatar and name were cleared, and his ID changed to "Mi:110018".

Later that day, Xiaomi community leader @AKA Ms. Wan issued a confirmation message and said: "Recently, I accidentally killed Mr. Lei's account due to cleaning up a batch of historical illegal accounts. I quickly found out the reason and restored it after 12 o'clock (the work station is temporarily still)".

The official blog of Xiaomi Community also commented under the original blogger, "Due to a system bug, a situation occurred. We have completed emergency processing at 12 o'clock and restored the normal display of Mr. Lei's community account."

It is reported that Xiaomi Motors has negotiated production cooperation with Chery and Brilliance Automobile

According to Bloomberg, people familiar with the matter said Xiaomi has held talks with automakers such as Brilliance Automobile and Chery Automobile on potential production partnerships.

Last year, Xiaomi Motors also discussed matters related to cooperating with Beijing Automotive Group to produce electric vehicles.

Meanwhile, Xiaomi is still working to obtain relevant approvals from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and discussions with other automakers are still ongoing, and it is uncertain whether any partnerships will be formed, people familiar with the matter said.

According to previous reports from Jiemian News, Xiaomi Motors has entered the trial production stage. People familiar with the matter said that Xiaomi Motors has only received approval from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in the past two months, and it will be approved by the end of the year at the latest. Once the approval is received, Xiaomi Motors can immediately ramp up full-scale mass production of Xiaomi Motors.

Xiaomi's second quarter financial report shows that Xiaomi's investment in innovative businesses such as smart electric vehicles reached 1.4 billion yuan in the quarter. Xiaomi Group President Lu Weibing said that Xiaomi Motors' progress has exceeded expectations and the mass production target for the first half of 2024 remains unchanged.

OPPO Find N3 official announcement, will be released globally on October 19

OPPO officially announced that the OPPO Find N3 folding screen mobile phone will be released globally at 14:30 on October 19, known as "a new generation of imaging and the next generation of folding."

Liu Zuohu, chief product officer of OPPO, said, "The foldable form is originally an advantage, and the form should not be sacrificed at the expense of experience." He said:

Today's folding products, in order to pursue a single thinness and lightness, have turned the folding form into an excuse: one fold discounts the screen effect, one fold discounts the imaging experience, and one fold discounts the convenience of the system.

This time OPPO Find N3 is going to make the era of folding screens covering up three ugly things become a thing of the past. It must have thin and light texture, image effects, screen quality, system interaction, and large-screen experience.
