But if you remove the stickers and stickers, then under them there will be a 12-nanometer Maxio MAP1602A controller without DRAM buffer memory, but with PCIe 4.0 support (the same one is used in the Acer Predator GM7). The flash memory chips are 128-layer TLC NAND with a bulky layout from YMTC. Although Samsung uses its own controller and memory chips in its SSDs.

This is probably the most beautiful mobile phone in history

Meizu has published the official teaser with the technical parameters of its new flagship Meizu 20 Pro. Right at the very beginning of the indiscreet document, it says: “maybe this is the most beautiful mobile phone in history” …

This is probably the most beautiful mobile phone in history

Everything would be fine, but at the moment the device looks like a collection of quotes: the main camera is designed in the spirit of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, and the flat side frame is exactly like the current iPhone. What about the front panel? It looks like almost any other smartphone with a flat screen and an embedded camera.

Among the advantages of the Meizu 20 Pro, the creators name an ideal 50/50 weight distribution (that is, the mass is distributed evenly throughout the phone), a thin screen frame (width is 1.57 mm), a 5000 mAh battery with support for 80 W wired charging and 50W wireless. The thickness of the smartphone is also indicated – it is 7.8 mm.

The Meizu 20 Pro was previously listed on Geekbench with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 single-chip system. There are also examples of photos taken by the main camera of the phone. The official premiere of the Meizu 20 flagships is scheduled for March 30.

Startups use GPT 4 to save on live programmers

Network publications reported that a number of startups began to use the GPT-4 language model from OpenAI to save on developers. AI is said to be capable of generating code.

For example, Landscape startup founder Joe Perkins said on Twitter that he wrote the code for five microservices using a neural network, it took him only 3 hours, and the code turned out to be at a good level. If he wrote everything by hand, he would have to spend several weeks and 5 thousand pounds sterling.

According to Vice, who spoke with Perkins, he studied computer science at school, but his knowledge was only enough to understand the code, and not to write it. So GPT-4 was the right solution. And although Perkins continues to collaborate with developers, the language model simplifies development, speeds it up, and saves money.

But the executive director of online education at the Georgia Institute of Technology David Joyner (David Joyner) said that language models are unlikely to replace programmers. They are more likely to become assistants and take on some of the work.

Thus, GPT-4 is sure to become a sought-after tool in the market soon, and developers will have to learn how to use it in order to be in demand.

This feature is available via a link or in the sidebar in the Edge browser. However, so far only English is supported, although in the future the developers promise to add other languages, but the timing of the appearance of this feature is not specified.

By entering a textual description of the image, providing additional context such as the character’s location or occupation, and choosing an art style, Image Creator will create an image from your own imagination.”, the developers explained.

Note that the Bing Image Creator is available in the creative response mode of the Bing chatbot. Although this mode allows you to create, it blocks the creation of potentially dangerous or prohibited content. Note that the number of generations is not limited, but there will be only 25 fast ones, the rest will take longer to calculate.

An example of work looks like this:
