This news was commented on by a high-ranking representative of Nokia. He said his company was delighted to have entered into an agreement with the tech giant Flipkart. Together, they will unveil the first Nokia TV in India.

ORRO will release new firmware soon
On November 20, a press conference of the ORRO company will take place in Beijing. It is already known for sure that it will feature a new proprietary shell of the company ColorOS 7.
In this regard, a teaser appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo, from which the internal name of the program became known. In the development circle, she received the nickname "Killer Whale".
In his interview, one of the creators of the firmware said why such a name was chosen. As you know, a killer whale is a killer whale. In nature, unlike sedentary and amorphous common whales, he is fast and impetuous. Thus, the creators of ColorOS 7 show that their creation combines lightness, power, wisdom and elegance.
Nothing was reported about the exact characteristics of the firmware. Insiders predict a significant change in the interface of the new program compared to the previous shell.
In any case, everyone will soon find out how much "Killer Whale" corresponds to the epithets it received from its creators.
HUAWEI will release its smartphone operating system next year
HUAWEI Senior Vice President Vincent Pan spoke with journalists the other day. In his interview, he said that next year the company will present a version of Harmony OS for smartphones.
The Vice President said that it will take six to nine months to adapt the program. In his opinion, the expectations for the company are now like a recession in development.
Recall that due to the trade war between the United States and China, HUAWEI came under sanctions. Their result was the refusal to cooperate with Google. With the departure of this giant, the Chinese have lost access to its services.
One of this year's flagships, the HUAWEI Mate 30 no longer supports Google services. This affected his commercial success. Therefore, the company's specialists began to develop their own operating system, which is designed for a wide range of products.
Which smartphones will receive Harmony OS support is not yet known. The date of its announcement was not disclosed.
Intel launches production of processors for supercomputers on new architecture
Intel's new GPU architecture was named Ponte Vecchio, after one of the bridges in Florence, Italy. It is assumed that chips of this type will function using the CXL interconnect.

Intel Xe chipsets will feature increased cache size and high memory bandwidth. Ponte Vecchio processors adapt for double precision computing.
The segment has already been identified, in which new Intel products will most likely be in demand. These are resources that require high performance cloud computing. These at the present stage of development include, in addition to cloud systems, various gaming and learning computers, ultra mobile and mobile PCs, devices with AI.
From this it is clear that the manufacturer's new graphics will be in demand almost everywhere. This is one of the most promising developments of the company, which will surely become successful.
