The annual Qualcomm Tech Summit is scheduled for November 30, at which the announcement of the flagship SoC Snapdragon 898 is expected. Now, for the first time, it is reported that Qualcomm will change the naming scheme for its platforms. Instead of the Snapdragon 898, the company will switch to the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 scheme.

The Chinese resource MyDrivers refers to a well-known tech blogger who claims that the usual three-digit designation of Snapdragon platforms is a thing of the past. Qualcomm’s new top platform will retain the “8” number, which will convey flagship status. The Snapdragon 8 series SoCs have always been the best in the lineup and have mostly been used in high-end smartphones.

As for the Snapdragon 8 Gen1, the platform is expected to offer a 20% performance boost over its predecessor. It will be powered by a core ARM Cortex-X2 core clocked at 3.0GHz, three Cortex-A710 cores clocked at 2.5GHz and four energy efficient Cortex-A510 cores clocked at 1.79GHz.

The single-chip system will work with the Snapdragon X65 5G modem, which could theoretically offer a maximum downlink speed of 10 Gbps. The GPU will be the Adreno 730.

Earlier, the authoritative insider Ice Universe published a selection of new information about the Snapdragon 898 SoC, the GPU of which turned out to be much more productive than expected.

The first realistic image of Huawei Mate 50

Huawei is hard at work on the new flagships of the Mate 50 series – according to the latest data, the devices have already been finalized and sent for lengthy tests, and the official premiere will take place on September 12. Now the first realistic image of a smartphone has appeared on the Web – the manufacturer of cases has tried.

Manufacturers of accessories often leak the design of new products long before they are announced, and this is how it happened now. The screen, most likely, will look “like everyone else” – with a front camera embedded in the center, but four modules are located in the back in a large round block (but image sensors and lenses are in only three of them). The design is to some extent familiar to Huawei, but, of course, this is not a donut camera in the Mate 40. To some extent, the Mate 50’s camera performance is even close to the Xiaomi 12S Ultra.

These images were published by an insider known as Digital Chat Station. Previously, he was the first to accurately announce the characteristics and release dates of Redmi K30, K40, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 11. The informant confirmed that the production model really looks almost the same.

Little is known about the specifications of the Huawei Mate 50. It is reported that SoC Kirin 9000s will form the basis of its hardware platform, but what kind of platform it is and how it will differ from the usual Kirin 9000 is not clear.

Tesla workers cannot return to offices as Elon Musk ordered

In early June, Tesla CEO Elon Musk ordered remote employees to return to their offices, and they obeyed. Only, as it turned out, Tesla itself was not ready for this. At least – her facility in Fremont (California). Workers faced a shortage of tables, parking spaces and even Wi-Fi!

Tesla workers cannot return to offices, as Elon Musk ordered.  There are not enough slots and parking spaces, and the Wi-Fi signal is very weak

During the pandemic (more precisely, since 2019), the number of Tesla employees has doubled to 99,210 people. And although Musk himself has already recognized hiring as redundant and announced the dismissal of 10% of the staff, the problem of shortage of space in offices will still have to be dealt with somehow.

The lack of parking spaces is what was waiting for Tesla workers outside, but there were simply no empty spaces inside. Tesla has reportedly repurposed some of the space during the pandemic, and of course, this did not take into account the return of the overgrown staff back to the office. It is noted that the shortage of tables was so great that managers still asked some employees to work from home. And those who had enough tables and space complained about a weak Wi-Fi signal.

All in all, Musk’s plan to get employees back in the office was not without flaws.
