Huawei has announced its latest developments for electric vehicles. Among them is a multimedia and entertainment system powered by HarmonyOS and based on large touch screens. As it turned out, the hardware platform of this system is based on the Kirin 990A single-chip platform – with 3.5 TOPS performance and 5G support.
The Kirin 990A is a pretty interesting SoC as it differs a lot from the Kirin 990 for smartphones. So, its central processor includes 4 Arm Cortex-A55 cores and 4 cores of its own design – Tarzan V120 Lite. Tarzan cores are designed for use in Arm architecture server CPUs. The platform also includes an Arm Mali-G76 GPU and AI acceleration coprocessors: two Ascend DaVinci D110 Tiny and one Ascend DavinCi D100 Lite.
Huawei does not disclose the technical process by which the Kirin 990A is produced, but for a car, the dimensions of the SoC, with its adequate cooling, are not of fundamental importance. So the company can produce this platform according to old technical processes, bypassing American sanctions from local contract manufacturers.

iDropNews: iPhone 14 presentation will take place on September 13
According to iDropNews, Apple has already decided to hold a fall event for the launch of new devices, which will be held on September 13th.
At this event, Apple is due to introduce the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. This year, Apple will expand the distinction between professional and non-professional iPhone models. Apple will reportedly equip the iPhone 14 Pro models with the 4nm A16 Bionic SoC, while non-professional phones can cyjdf use the 5nm A15 Bionic SoC that was used in the iPhone 13. Most consumers have no idea what SoC the phone is built on. SoC reuse could help Apple make the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max more price-competitive.
Even if Apple reuses the A15 Bionic SoC in iPhone 14 non-professional phones, it could still give them a different name, such as A16 Bionic. Then the new platform will be called SoC Apple A16 Pro.
Other differences include replacing the notch on iPhone 14 Pro models with an “i-shaped” cutout for the FaceTime and True Depth cameras. Meanwhile, inexpensive non-professional models will still have bangs. Other improvements to be found in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max include a 120Hz ProMotion display and a 48MP wide-angle camera.
Prices for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are rumored to start at $800 and $900, respectively. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max can cost between $1,100 and $1,200, respectively.
Also at the event are the highly anticipated AirPods Pro 2 and three Apple Watch models.
Samsung releases urgent mysterious update for Galaxy S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra
Less than a month after the Galaxy S22 family of smartphones received the previous update, these devices have received a new urgent update. So far, this only applies to Galaxy S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra devices based on Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Those who bought Exynos 2200-based versions have not yet received the update.
The new version is labeled S90xEXXU2AVE4 (where the “x” changes depending on the model) and is already in distribution in a dozen countries. The update size is 350 MB. The mysterious update contains various unnamed security fixes as well as “general feature stability” improvements.
Mid-month updates like these are rare for Samsung, so the company is believed to have found something to fix as soon as possible rather than waiting for the June security patch to be released in a couple of weeks.
If you have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 based Galaxy S22, S22+, or S22 Ultra and haven’t received an update notification for that device yet, you can check it manually by going to Settings > Software Update.
