Counterpoint has calculated that the Xiaomi 12S Ultra flagship smartphone with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of flash memory costs about $516, while the smartphone went on sale for $887.

According to Counterpoint, the camera costs about $79, the display costs $89, and the single-chip system costs $128. Xiaomi New Products Director Wang Teng Thomas has already commented on this information, saying that the cost of Xiaomi 12S Ultra was calculated incorrectly.

In particular, he noted that it was only in the cost of the camera module that Counterpoint made a huge mistake: the price of a camera with Leica lenses and the latest 1-inch image sensor is significantly higher than the price of $79. And this is even without taking into account the ultra-wide-angle and periscope module, which are used by Xiaomi 12S Ultra.

Van Ten Thomas added that there are errors in other articles, and also recalled that the cost should include the cost of research and development, operating costs, taxes and many other items.

Recall that the Xiaomi 12S Ultra is the first to use the 1-inch Sony IMX989 image sensor, which was jointly developed by Xiaomi and Sony. Lei Jun, founder of Xiaomi and Chairman and CEO of Xiaomi Group, said the development cost was $15 million.

Another source confirmed that the cost calculated by Counterpoint is very rough. Actual prices can vary greatly, and do not include internal taxation.

A technology for brewing cold coffee using a laser has

On hot days, many coffee lovers prefer cold brew coffee. It has a high caffeine content and good taste, but it has a drawback. Such a drink should be infused from 8 to 24 hours. But the development of scientists from the German University of Duisberg in Essen allows you to speed up the procedure at times.

A technology for brewing cold coffee using a laser has been developed

The researchers used a laboratory laser, tuned to give pulses of 125 picojoules for 10 picoseconds. After that, the laser pulse was passed through a mixture of ground coffee and water for about three minutes. According to the source, the beam passes through the drink up to 80,000 times per second.

The result is a coffee that is in no way inferior to the classic cold brew, but brews much faster. At the same time, the acidity index (one of the characteristics of coffee) does not differ much from the traditional method of preparation, and the caffeine level turned out to be closer to ordinary hot coffee.

At the same time, scientists argue that “laser” coffee can be improved if it is brewed in this way for a few more minutes. It will be more flavorful and high in caffeine.

The team has high hopes for the commercialization of the technology and plans to work on mass-produced laser coffee brewing systems for coffee shop use.
