Mobile crazy: Meet the man who may have the biggest phone collection in China
50-year-old Li Qinglin has spent 20 years collecting nearly 3000 mobile phones in Changchun, Northeast China’s Jilin Province
Since 1998, Li got his first mobile phone, a Motorola 8800. Since then, he has not been able to stop himself from buying the latest models of as many brands as he can find.
Li owns nearly all of the mobiles sold in China since the 1980s. Some handsets in his collection can fetch a high price among other mobile phone aficionados.
Li said “I hope someday I can have a museum to show these mobile phones to people. These mobile phones witnessed the development of personal communication in China and the change in mobile technology from the first analogue generation to 3G and 4G.”
The other week, Huawei’s HiSilicon lifted the lid on the details about its new high performance Kirin 960 mobile application processor, and it looks like it’s squarely aimed at taking on Qualcomm and Samsung in the high-end SoC market this time around. So, let’s take a closer look at the finer details that the Kirin 960 is bringing to the table, which goes above and beyond just improved performance.
To re-cover the basics, the Kirin 960 is an octa-core big.LITTLE CPU design, based on four high-performance ARM Cortex A73 cores clocked at 2.4GHz alongside four low-power Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. The chip is also the first SoC to make use of ARM’s latest Mali-G71GPU and is built on a 16nm manufacturing process, which will feel familiar from this year’s Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890.
No doubt, first thing that makes you palm Honor’s latest flagship Honor 8 is its killer body! The dual glass panel—all glass front and back panel– design makes it a class apart. All we can say isGlass is Class!
