HTC’s first flagship in years is ready to launch

Published

Dutch mobile certification body Telefication has announced that the phone with model number HTC 2QBK200 is ready for release. The presentation should take place as soon as possible.

Telefication did not share details about the characteristics of the novelty, but back in March it was announced that HTC plans to release the first flagship phone running the Android operating system in a long time. This information was confirmed by the CEO of HTC Vive Asia-Pacific Charles Huang. True, then it was promised to release a smartphone back in April, but plans have changed.

HTC's first flagship in years is ready to launch

The new HTC flagship will be the first since the HTC U12+, released back in 2018. HTC’s upcoming flagship will focus on augmented and virtual reality applications, and will support deep integration with HTC’s own open-source metaverse platform, dubbed Viveverse.

It’s worth adding that HTC sold most of its smartphone business to Google back in 2018 and has since only released budget and mid-range phones in some markets.

Details on the new flagship are expected to emerge in the coming days or weeks.

Virgin Orbit successfully launched a LauncherOne rocket carrying seven NASA

Virgin Orbit launched a seven-satellite rocket from California’s Mojave Aerospace Port on Saturday, marking the company’s first successful overnight mission. Virgin Orbit launched satellites into low Earth orbit using its Boeing 747 carrier aircraft called Cosmic Girl, which had a LauncherOne rocket attached to it.

The mission, named Straight Up after a song by Paula Abdul, involved the launch of seven NASA research satellites. As in previous missions, the launch of the rocket took place from a height of 10 km, which climbed Cosmic Girl. The carrier plane’s flight was originally scheduled to take place on Thursday, but Virgin Orbit postponed the mission after experts found LauncherOne’s propellant temperature was “slightly out of range.”

In total, Virgin Orbit has already carried out five launches, four of which were successful (only the first test was unsuccessful). Virgin Orbit is owned by British billionaire Richard Branson, but should not be confused with Virgin Galactic, the company’s separate commercial spaceflight division.

XMAGE camera periscope module and 7x optical zoom Huawei Mate

The premiere of the Huawei Mate 50 series smartphones is expected on September 12 – not soon, but renders have already begun to be published on the Web, which are based on leaks and images of cases. These pictures show perhaps the highest quality concept renders of the Huawei Mate 50 Pro. Moreover, the smartphone poses in two colors at once – black and white.

The main thing here, of course, is the camera. The block contains the name of the new corporate brand of the camera – XMAGE. It will combine all the old and new technologies of Huawei in the field of mobile photography. XMAGE is a synthesis of two words, Extreme and Image, and under the brand, Huawei will focus on three pillars: photography experience, culture, and innovation. That is, it will be more than just a set of sensors and lenses.

But we are more interested in technology. Judging by the inscriptions in the camera block, the smartphone will have lenses with a focal length of 13 to 90 mm, that is, we can talk about a 7x zoom. The main module will most likely have a wide-angle lens. And 90 mm is the focal length of the lens of the periscope module. Of course, there will be optical stabilization.

Huawei novelties are also credited with SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Kirin 9000s, 8 GB of RAM and 128-256 GB of flash memory. These models will be the first to run HarmonyOS 3.0 out of the box.

Order a new Hummer EV and wait 17 years SUV

The lineup for the electric Hummer EV has already stretched for more than 17 years at current production rates.

Order a new Hummer EV and wait 17 years.  SUV production volumes are catastrophically low

General Motors is facing the same problem that Tesla long ago faced, and now Ford and Rivian are facing. The company offered the market a car that interested consumers a lot, they began to pre-order, but GM simply cannot produce enough cars. In this case, of course, due to the continuing shortage of components.

So far, about 77,500 people have pre-ordered the Hummer EV. This is quite a lot, but much less than the Tesla Model 3 at one time. However, Tesla had no problems with components and was actively increasing production. But General Motors now produces only 12 cars a day!

This is catastrophically small. Even Rivian has already reached the volume of about 30-40 cars a day, and Ford produces about 150 F-150 Lightings pickups.

The manufacturer says that it intends to significantly increase production volumes at the end of this year, but there is no exact data on this. And even with 12 cars a day, even a five-fold increase in production will be completely insufficient.
