Huawei’s next flagship Kirin processor, according to a tipster, is coming soon and will be called the Kirin 9010. According to the information posted on Twitter handle @RODENT950, the next-gen Kirin processor is going to be a 3nm chipset. The new Kirin 9010 will power the new Huawei Mate 50 series by the Q4 of 2021. A few months ago Huawei launched the Kirin 9000 in two variants – the Kirin 9000 and the Kirin 9000E, which is found in Huawei’s Mate 40 series smartphones.

India’s external storage market fell 14.8% to $ 79.9 mn YoY in terms of vendor revenue, in Q3 CY2020, said IDC. The obvious reason was decline in storage spending by professional services, govt and manufacturing units, as CIOs favour adoption of cloud tech to overcome the challenges of COVID-19 lockdown. This is the third consecutive YoY decline of the segment. The drop is likely to continue further in CY2020 and recovery is expected in CY2021 only.
Apple is moving forward with its own self-driving car tech to launch a passenger vehicle by 2024. The Project Titan took off in 2014 when it first started to design its own vehicle from scratch. But Apple drew back the effort after a while. Doug Field, an Apple veteran and former Tesla executive has returned to head the project in 2018. Central to Apple’s strategy is a new battery design to “radically” reduce the cost and increase the vehicle’s range.
Microsoft is working on in-house processors for the servers running its cloud-computing services and Surface computers. The chips would use tech from Arm, which is being acquired by Nvidia for $40 bn. Microsoft relies heavily on Intel and AMD chips for its Azure services and Surface PCs. The tech giant is working with computing cores licensed from Arm, rather than designing its own custom cores chips as Apple has does for its own Mac Series of PCs.
Samsung and IBM have signed an agreement to combine “edge computing” with private 5G networks to help clients automate production. “Edge computing” uses augmented reality and ML to analyse bulk data at the factory floor, oil rig or office space, etc before moving it to remote “cloud” servers. To work, it needs fast data transfers that 5G provide. Samsung’s 5G equipment, now, will work with IBM’s cloud tech – edge platform, integration services, AI products.
