Today, Qualcomm announced on its official website that the next Snapdragon Technology Summit will be held from November 14 to 17. At this time, the company should introduce the next-generation flagship single-chip system, supposedly called Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
According to well-known Chinese insider Digital Chat Station, the development of the new Xiaomi flagship based on the SM8550 (Snapdragon 8 Gen 2) is ahead of schedule. It was previously reported that Xiaomi 13 will be presented in November this year. Now it is confirmed that Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro will be announced in November, and sales will begin in December this year.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is the successor to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and will be manufactured by TSMC using a 4nm process. The platform will continue to use the “1 + 3 + 4” three-cluster architecture.
It is reported that Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro will be equipped with high-quality 2K resolution screens, stereo sound, water resistance, multifunctional NFC and a Leica camera. Previously, Digital Chat Station confirmed that the finished prototype is made of ceramic material, which is superior in quality to previous ceramic cases of Xiaomi smartphones.
After Xiaomi 13, the single-chip system will appear in the Samsung Galaxy S23 and many other flagship smartphones.
Digital Chat Station was the first to accurately announce the specifications and release dates of Redmi K50 and Xiaomi 12.
Smartphones are to blame: Nikon and Panasonic have stopped the production of compact digital cameras. Fujifilm, Sony and Casio have done it before
Japanese companies Nikon and Panasonic have stopped making low-cost compact digital cameras and will now focus on more expensive mirrorless cameras.
The reason is partly due to smartphones, which are increasingly focusing on quality cameras. Global shipments of compact digital cameras are down 97% from 2008 to just 3.01 million units in 2021 as smartphone cameras get better and smarter.
Nikon has suspended the development of new compact models of its Coolpix line. Nikon currently only offers two models with quality lenses, but the company is “closely monitoring market trends” to determine future production volumes.
Nikon has already stopped making DSLRs to specialize in high-end single-lens mirrorless models. According to Nikkei Asia, the company will focus resources on mirrorless cameras, which have been made popular by more advanced digital technologies.
Panasonic Holdings “has not launched any new products in the price range below $370 since 2019 and has no plans to develop low-cost models in the future.” “We have stopped development of any new models that can be replaced by a smartphone,” a company spokesman said.
Going forward, Panasonic will produce high quality mirrorless cameras for photography enthusiasts. The company plans to launch a mirrorless camera with the German company Leica Camera.
Previously, Fujifilm stopped production of its FinePix compact cameras. Canon hasn’t released a new Ixy camera since 2017. The Sony Group has also not offered any new compact models under its Cyber-shot brand since 2019, and Casio Computer stopped making Exilim cameras in 2018.
Buyers of Nothing Phone (1) were deceived. Nothing urgently changed the characteristics of the smartphone on the official website
Introduced in July this year, the Nothing Phone (1) smartphone was quite actively discussed on the Web because of its original design and backlight. However, early adopters immediately began reporting screen problems and lagging LED strips.
Now it turned out that buyers of Nothing Phone (1) were deceived by information about the maximum brightness of the screen. According to official data, the maximum brightness of the Nothing Phone (1) screen is 1200 cd/m2but in almost all tests, the maximum screen brightness is less than 700 cd / m2. In some tests, it does not even rise to 650 cd / m2.
In response, Nothing Phone (1) stated that it would conduct an internal investigation. In addition, the company has changed the peak brightness on the official website settings page from 1200 nits to 700 cd/m.2.
Step aside, Geely! Electric car manufacturer Nio will also make smartphones

The division is headquartered in Shanghai and co-founders include Nio President Qin Lihong. According to media reports, the company is preparing the first smartphone in 2023, while it will be cheaper than the iPhone. Smartphones are expected to be released once a year.
