KPN picks Ericsson over Huawei for 5G network

28th October 2020
"Huawei is effectively banned in the United States and Washington had expressed fears that if KPN’s 5G backbone contained Huawei equipment it would be vulnerable to spying by the Chinese state."

KPN has chosen Sweden’s Ericsson to build core elements of its new 5G mobile network following a decision last year not to select China’s Huawei, the Dutch telecoms company said on Thursday.

Huawei is effectively banned in the United States and Washington had expressed fears that if KPN’s 5G backbone contained Huawei equipment it would be vulnerable to spying by the Chinese state.

Huawei, the world’s biggest telecoms equipment and smartphone vendor has denied U.S. allegations that it is ultimately answerable to the Chinese government and is therefore a security risk.

KPN said in April 2019 that it would select a Western supplier to build its core 5G mobile network, making it one of the first European operators to eliminate Huawei.

In its statement on Thursday, KPN said it “will collaborate with Ericsson” for the implementation of its core 5G technology.

No financial details of the deal with Ericsson were disclosed.

US bans 38 Huawei affiliate companies

28th October 2020
"38 new Huawei affiliates across 21 countries were added to the Entity List because they present a significant risk of acting on Huawei’s behalf contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States."

On Monday, the US BIS (Bureau of Industry and Security) within the Department of Commerce has announced that it will further limit Huawei from accessing US chips. According to the press release, Huawei has been able to circumvent the ban by purchasing American components through third-party companies.

The US Department of commerce will ban 38 companies all directly affiliated with Huawei across 21 countries, which have been used to go around the US ban that the Trump Administration extended through May 2021, according to the BIS.


The affiliate companies listed are all branches of Huawei that operate outside of China including design and Huawei Cloud centers, as well as some of its R&D centers throughout Europe.

Everything in the press release was intentionally meant to limit Huawei from doing business with the United States big tech companies. In fear that the “Chinese Communist Party” will direct Huawei to fulfill a scheme against US officials or US citizens.

According to APNews earlier this month citing a Huawei executive, the Chinese telecom giant is running out of processor chips and will have to eventually cease production of its high-end Kirin processors. Perhaps May 2021 will bring about better news for Huawei.

Apple announces iPhone 12 mini 5G phones

27th October 2020
"Apple claims it’s the smallest, thinnest, and lightest 5G phone in the world."

Apple is announcing a new iPhone 12 mini today. It’s the first time Apple has used the “mini” moniker on its iPhone line, after using it on the iPod mini, iPad mini, and Mac mini previously. The new iPhone 12 mini has a 5.4-inch screen, which means Apple has squeezed a larger display than the 4.7-inch screen found on this year’s iPhone SE into an iPhone 12 mini handset that’s smaller overall.

Apple has made the $729 iPhone 12 mini smaller by removing Touch ID and replacing it with Face ID, alongside a significant reduction in bezels around the display. Apple claims it’s the smallest, thinnest, and lightest 5G phone in the world.

Like the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 mini uses Apple’s A14 Bionic, a 5nm chip with better energy efficiency and performance than the A13. It includes a six-core CPU (two high and four low) that Apple claims are 50 percent faster than the A13 chip. It also includes a four-core GPU, which Apple claims will enable “console-quality games.”

The iPhone 12 mini shares the rest of the main iPhone 12 specs and design, too. The iPhone 12 mini has flat aluminum sides that now match the iPad Pro and iPad Air (and are similar to the iPhone 4 from 10 years ago).

The shared specs include a 12-megapixel f/1.6 main camera — the fastest aperture in any iPhone yet — and a 12MP ultrawide. Apple has improved low-light performance on the iPhone 12 mini, and the front-facing camera will also include its own Night Mode.

The display glass on the iPhone 12 mini is also coated with what Apple describes as a “Ceramic Shield” for better durability. Water and dust resistance has also been improved to an IP68 rating.

Apple is also using the new MagSafe magnet system on the iPhone 12 mini. It supports wireless chargers (including Qi-enabled devices), case accessories, and even leather wallets that all snap onto the rear of the device.

Apple’s iPhone 12 mini is priced starting at $729 and will be available in five color options: blue, green, black, white, and red, Preorders for the iPhone 12 mini will begin on November 6th at 5AM PT / 8AM ET, with the handset shipping on November 13th.

Correction: Apple originally announced the iPhone 12 Mini would cost $699. The MSRP is actually $729. That lower price only applies after a $30 discount from specific carriers.
