2. News: OnePlus Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 The new machine is expected to adjust the family-style design

OnePlus’ new phones in the past two years have all adopted a family-style appearance design, that is, a stainless steel hinge + circular Deco in the upper left corner, which not only improves recognition but also attracts some controversy. According to reports, OnePlus’ family-style design may be adjusted. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 iteration prototype is not a stainless steel hinge + circular Deco design in the upper left corner.

As per previous years, the OnePlus Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 iteration flagship is expected to be named OnePlus 13. If the OnePlus 12 model can establish itself in the 4K price range, the next generation Pro product line is expected to return and hit the high end again. If the news is true, OnePlus cannot rule out the possibility of once again impacting the high-end mobile phone market with new designs.

3. Test finds Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Titanium alloy material is not as good as Apple iPhone 15 Pro Maxlower cost

Like the iPhone 15 Pro Max, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra also uses a titanium alloy frame to improve the durability and lightweight of the phone. However, the titanium alloy content and quality of the two phones are not the same. The well-known Youtube technology channel JerryRigEverything revealed the secret through a fire test.

Previously, JerryRigEverything had conducted the same test on the iPhone 15 Pro Max and found that its titanium alloy frame remained intact under high-temperature burning. This is not surprising because the furnace used in the tests was not hot enough to melt the titanium alloy. The Galaxy S24 Ultra was put through the same test. Like the iPhone 15 Pro Max, the Galaxy S24 Ultra isn't entirely made of titanium, which would otherwise be too costly. Through the XRF scanner, it was found that the Galaxy S24 Ultra uses grade 2 titanium alloy on the outside of the frame, and 6061 aluminum alloy on the internal structure, with a layer of plastic between the two. In comparison, the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s outer frame uses grade 5 titanium alloy, which is harder.

4. It is reported that BYD Qin L Model 12 Around 10,000 yuan, NEDC Fuel consumption is about 2.9L

BYD Qin L has been declared through the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Prior to this, officials had warmed up the car several times. Judging from the name of the car, the car is obviously an "upgraded version" of the existing BYD Qin family. It is positioned as a mid-sized sedan with a size between the Qin and Han.

Blogger @ Xiangbei Jidiandian broke the news that the starting price of BYD Qin L will be around 120,000 yuan, which is 20,000 yuan more expensive than the current Qin PLUS DM-i. He also revealed that BYD Qin L will be the first batch of products equipped with DM5.0, with NEDC fuel consumption of only about 2.9L, while the current Qin PLUS is 3.8L. Data shows that the new car is 4830mm long, 1900mm wide, 1495mm high, and has a wheelbase of 2790mm, which is significantly larger than the existing Qin PLUS series models; the total mass reaches 2035kg, and the curb weight is 1660kg. The new car continues to use BYD's "Dragon Face" design language, with a very large air intake grille (available in two styles with or without hot stamping), equipped with C-shaped air ducts on both sides, full of sporty atmosphere, and the lines on the side of the body It is very relaxing.

5.Canalys:2023 Annual tablet sales fell 10% year-on-yearApple firmly takes the top spot, Huawei bucks the trend and grows

According to the latest data released by Canalys, tablet sales in 2023 dropped 10% year-on-year, with only 135.3 million units sold throughout the year. As expected, Apple still leads the market with a market share of 40% (54 million units shipped).

Apple's market share is basically the same as in 2022 (40.4%), and second-ranked Samsung is similar. It shipped 25.6 million units last year and had a market share of 19%, slightly higher than 19.3% in 2022. Lenovo ranked third, with sales of 9.3 million units and a market share of 6.9%, down from 7.7% in 2022. Huawei shipped 8.3 million units, with a market share of 6.1%, and Amazon shipped 7.7 million units, with a market share of 5.8%. It is worth mentioning that Amazon's market share has experienced the largest decline, falling from 9.1% in 2022 to 5.8%. Huawei is the only one among the top five brands to maintain growth, with its market share in 2022 being only 4.2%.

6. Sources say Samsung Exynos 2400 Chip yield reaches 60%only 25% more than a year ago

@Tech_Reve said that the 4LPP+ process used by Samsung Exynos 2400 currently has a yield rate of about 60%. Although it is not as good as its competitors (TSMC N4P is said to be about 70%), it has far exceeded its own performance more than a year ago. Only 25%.

It is worth mentioning that Exynos 2400 is Samsung’s first smartphone chipset to adopt “fan-out wafer-level packaging” (FOWLP). Samsung claims that using FOWLP technology can increase heat resistance by 23%, resulting in an 8% increase in multi-core performance, so the Exynos 2400 performed well in the latest 3DMark Wild Life extreme stress test results.
