It seems that Huawei has decided not to be limited in their devices with chips of its own production Kirin and preparing another line of processors called Pikiu. It is worth noting that these developments will not be used in new smartphones.
Huawei has applied for trademark Pikiu in EUIPO (intellectual property Office of the European Union). He refers to the ninth category, which includes chips and chipsets for tablets, smartphones, displays, modems, smart watches and other means of communication. Apparently, the company wants to compete with Xiaomi in the market of smart devices-including watches, tablets, modems, and other devices that are popular.
It is possible that the processors Pikiu will be used in folding devices. We will remind, the first model to debut on 24 February in the framework of the exhibition MWC in Barcelona 2019. Although she is credited with the flagship platform Kirin. In any case, the cost per device would be huge. For example, the flexible smartphone from Samsung will be sold at a price of $ 1,500.
Perhaps the new SoC will take place in the medium segment and will replace the processors of Qualcomm and MediaTek in the budget smartphone.
Recall that the Korean company Samsung has patented a gaming smartphone. In addition to the top of the filling, he will receive a flexible enclosure which can be folded like a book. Among other things, the price of the device will be a huge, and insiders report that it will be over $ 1,500. See whether the device is on the shelves, or is it another useless patent.
Earlier Znayu reported that Roskomnadzor once again disgraced after being hit by Google. It is reported that due to violations of Russian laws Google must pay a fine. However, we are talking about the amount of 500 thousand rubles, which is very little for search engine. Much easier to pay a small sum of money than to adhere to the laws of Russia.
Znayu wrote that the court sided with Apple in the litigation between Apple Corporation and Qualcomm. Recall that sales of the iPhone banned in China and in Germany. And yet, the court dismissed several allegations of violations of four patents. It seems that Apple will soon solve the case in their favor.
