Xiaomi should launch the Xiaomi 12S line next Monday (4). The devices could be the world’s first with Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 and the brand is also excited to present the result of its partnership with Leica.

However, Lei Jun, founder and CEO of the Chinese company, said that the Xiaomi 12S line will not pass the traditional DxOMark camera test. For him, the price the brand has to pay for the evaluation is quite expensive, and not even Mi Fans care about the camera ranking.

In addition, in response to the criticism that the company has been receiving on social media, Jun said that it was Leica that approached Xiaomi and not the other way around. The executive said that the German company saw good potential in his company’s cell phones after Huawei lost ground in the global market.

According to DivX’s lawyer, Carlos Aboim, the company went to court to protect new investments in the development of this and new technologies related to video compression.

On the other hand, Netflix denies that it is infringing patents, even though this has been proven in five technical opinions signed by USP, UFRJ and other universities.

Piracy even in the Metaverse

In an operation carried out this week, the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) announced the seizure of 5,700 non-approved telecommunications products that were in Amazon warehouses and distribution centers in the cities of Betim and Cajamar.

According to Anatel, around 67,000 pieces of equipment were inspected and those that were withdrawn from circulation are valued at R$500,000. The regulatory agency says most products are cell phone chargers, portable batteries and wireless headphones.

In addition, Anatel highlights the collaboration of Amazon itself, which helped in the operation by identifying the products.

And piracy has also reached the well-known Metaverse. The Ministry of Justice and Public Security carried out another phase of “Operation 404” and closed 461 music apps, 700 streaming apps and 266 websites that distributed pirated content within the Metaverse.

10 people involved in the maintenance and distribution of copyrighted content were arrested.

He said:

They were very annoying because, as you know, they stole our technology. They took the innovations that we created and made a poor copy of them, and just put a bigger screen on the phone. So, yes, we were not happy with that at all, said Joswiak.

Apple even sued Samsung for this copy and won the lawsuit with an estimated $1 billion fine. However, the company only entered into an agreement with Samsung in 2018 when the Korean paid a value well below that.

[A medida foi criada] with the objective of contributing to the homogenization of the offer of products that use cable charging, which will allow greater convenience for consumers and possibly reduce electronic waste by reusing chargers when changing cell phones.

In addition, Anatel also lists some benefits of USB-C: it has greater durability, supports high data transfer capacity, allows connection to monitors and can also be used with fast charging up to 240W.

The Public Consultation will be available until August 26, 2022, if approved, the rule should enter into force from July 1, 2024.

Galaxy S22 FE cancelled?

Samsung may launch more affordable folding smartphones by the year 2024. According to the latest information, the Korean brand’s goal is to sell these devices within the Galaxy A line and priced below US$800 (~R$4,200).

The idea behind the project is to deliver foldables with an intermediate chipset and cut some features to lower production costs. This strategy also aims to make Samsung further expand its dominance in the foldable market, with the brand currently holding 88% of the segment.

On another front, rumors released this week indicate that the Korean may have given up on launching the Galaxy S22 FE. A well-known and trusted leaker said that little has been heard of the development of this device in Samsung’s supply chain.

In addition, the brand itself recognizes that the delayed launch of the S21 FE made the device compete directly with the Galaxy S22 line and lose sales. The scenario is somewhat complicated, but there are those who believe that there is still a possibility that the S22 FE will be launched in 2023.
