Build your digital toolkit like it’s a fintech smartphone

Despite the sophistication of today’s tech offerings, many firms and advisers face an uphill battle in building an integrated tech stack that provides everything they need. Complicating matters is that some fail to realize how an ad hoc approach to technology can impact their entire operation.

In some respects, the dynamic evokes memories of the evolution of the smartphone, which began as an effort to combine all the disparate personal tools that already existed into one consolidated platform that was sleek, easy-to-use and intuitive. Now, billions worldwide have access to a hand-held computer customized to their daily routine everywhere they go. 

Firms and advisers need to approach the construction of their tech stacks in the same way. Here’s how: 

Consider your needs. Before Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone in 2007, it was of course possible to make a call, take a photo, schedule a meeting, text with friends or send

Huawei may sell Honor smartphone brand [Video]

Huawei is set to sell much of its Honor smartphone brand, according to Reuters sources.

Battered by U.S. sanctions, the Chinese firm is reportedly rethinking its priorities.

It wants to focus on its high-end phones, and ditch the budget-focused Honor offering.

The assets to be sold have yet to be decided, but could include the brand, research and development facilities and other units.

That could raise up to 3.7 billion dollars.

The front-runner for the acquisition is seen as Digital China Group.

It’s the main distributor for Honor phones.

But other contenders include electronics maker TCL and rival smartphone brand Xiaomi.

There was no immediate comment on the reports from Huawei or Digital China.

The Honor brand accounts for about a quarter of Huawei’s phone shipments.

But analysts say profit margins at the budget end of the market are razor thin.

Honor phones compete with value brands including Xiaomi, Oppo

iPhone 12 Could Be The Most Powerful Gaming Smartphone

Apple announced the iPhone 12 series of smartphones last night and also detailed features and capabilities of their new chipset, the A14 Bionic. It is the world’s first 5nm process and is touted to be the fastest and most efficient SoC in the world. Apple claims that the CPU and GPU performance has been increased by almost 50% compared to the fastest competing smartphone chips. What Apple is trying to say is that the A14 Bionic chipset is 50% faster than Qualcomm’s 865/865 Plus chipset and blows it out of the water.

To put things into perspective, the A14 Bionic has 11.8 trillion transistors and is capable of doing 11 trillion operations per second which no other chipset can do at the moment. It can even handle some of the most intense machine learning models. What this means is that the chipset is probably more advanced than anything

Huawei is in talks to sell part of its Honor smartphone unit

honor 30 pro plus review rear in hand

  • Huawei is reportedly in talks to sell off parts of its Honor unit.
  • It’s believed that Digital China, TCL, and Xiaomi are interested in the deal.

US sanctions against Huawei mean that the company’s smartphone business has suffered in a big way. Between its crippled in-house chipset division and the lack of Google support, it’s becoming increasingly tough for the firm to keep producing phones.

These troubles extend to its Honor sub-brand too, but Reuters now reports that Huawei is in talks to sell off parts of the Honor business in a deal potentially worth up to 25 billion yuan (~$3.7 billion).

The report, citing “people with knowledge of the matter,” alleges that Honor’s brand, research and development infrastructure, and associated supply chain management business could be sold under the deal. However, the newswire’s sources caution that this hasn’t been finalized yet.

It’s believed that Huawei will focus on higher-end

Exclusive: Huawei in talks to sell parts of its Honor smartphone business

By Julie Zhu

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Huawei Technologies Co Ltd is in talks with Digital China Group Co Ltd <000034.SZ> and other suitors to sell parts of its Honor smartphone unit in a deal that could fetch up to 25 billion yuan ($3.7 billion), people with knowledge of the matter said.

Embattled Huawei is resetting its priorities in the face of U.S. sanctions and will focus on its higher-end Huawei phones rather than the Honor brand which is aimed at young people and the budget conscious, they said.

The assets to be sold have yet to be finalised but could include Honor’s brand, research & development capabilities and related supply chain management business, two of the people said.

The deal may be an all-cash sale and could end up smaller, worth somewhere between 15 billion yuan and 25 billion yuan, one of the people said.
