Losing Money to Be a Tycoon - chapter 965
It was Jiang Yuan’s turn to introduce a new cell phone after introducing artificial intelligence technology.
He held three cell phones of Otto G1 in his hand and distributed them to the in-charge present.
Chang You looked at the cell phone with mixed feelings.
After all, this cell phone was developed before he left Otto Technologies. Now that the finished product was out, he was no longer in charge of the cell phone business. He still had some regrets.
However, Chang You thought that his current job was not bad. The smart fitness drying rack was progressing very smoothly and was very interesting. Chang You felt that this was not a bad arrangement.
Jiang Yuan introduced, “This is the prototype for G1’s cell phone. It has already been mass-produced and we are expected to hold a press conference next month.”
“We’re in a hurry, but according to what I know, the other manufacturers are also developing full screen display mobile phones with retractable cameras. We have to seize the opportunity and seize the initiative.”
“I’ve already decided on the design. There’s nothing much to change. This time, I’m mainly going to show it to the games department so that it can cooperate with the cell phone’s characteristics and make some special optimizations and compatibility for Tengda’s mobile game.”
“As everyone can see, the cell phone this time is still using the same design as the previous large battery. Therefore, its weight is still considerable. It’s still necessary for heavy users. The difference is that we used many new technologies in the supply chain. The most visual effect is the full screen display created by this retractable camera.”
“The two shoulder keys of the cell phone are specially provided for the game. The right shoulder key might be integrated onto the camera but the pressure of the shoulder key and the camera pop out are two different structures. It will not affect each other’s lifespan.”
“Under normal circumstances, the two shoulder keys would have a slight protrusion like the camera on the back of the cell phone. Our custom-made cell phone shell would leave a certain gap around the shoulder key. It would not completely fit. That way, players would be able to ensure their gaming experience without affecting how they carry it around.”
“In addition, the colleague in charge of OTTO OS has specially created a special gaming space for G1. On one hand, it can optimize the game’s memory occupancy to obtain a better gaming experience and reduce the interference of the pop-up window on the game. On the other hand, it can also allow players to freely project the buttons on the two shoulder keys.”
“However, it would be best if the official game developers come up with a plan as Tengda’s official mobile game. Then, the game would be automatically arranged after the G1 model was detected. That would be the best experience.
“In addition, in order to increase the utilization rate of the two shoulder keys in the normal state, we’ve also arranged other functions for them. The left shoulder key is integrated into the calling function of the AEEIS artificial intelligence assistant. A long press will enable one to talk to AEEIS; the right shoulder key inherited the camera function. After the long press, the camera will automatically move out and enter photo mode.”
“Originally, we needed to use the power button to call out AEEIS, and to enter the photo mode, we needed to click on the icon on the screen. Now, this plan has been slightly optimized.”
“Of course, we have also fully considered the possibility of miscommunication. Therefore, we have used long presses and limited these functions on some pages. Users can choose the functions of these two keys within the settings…”
Jiang Yuan briefly introduced the new features of G1’s cell phone.
Simply put, G1 was a cell phone with obvious strengths and flaws. Its strengths were its good looks, good game performance, and the design of two shoulder keys that greatly improved the game experience.
OTTO E1 cell phone’s original advantages, such as Tengda’s VIP services, large batteries, flagship chip, and Otto OS system, had mostly been continued.
However, the shortcomings of this cell phone were also very obvious. It was mainly to use a new comprehensive screen technology to make some compromises in other aspects. For example, the quality of the call would be slightly reduced. The fingerprint technology that was not mature for the time and could only place the fingerprint module on the side. There was no space to place a dual speaker and earphone holes. The high cost of developing the cell phone resulted in high prices.
However, these were all problems that he had expected when he designed the cell phone. With the current level of technology, there would only be gains if one was willing to give up.
Wang Xiaobin was in charge of optimizing the current Tengda mobile version of G1’s cell phone, including the mobile version of Ocean Stronghold, The Lonely Desert Road, and GOG.
He loved G1 cell phones. After all, most people would be shocked when they first saw such a radical comprehensive screen plan.
Wang Xiaobin then briefly discussed the details of the suitable mobile games with Jiang Yuan, especially the tacitly compatible plan for FPS games and speed games.
There was less than a month to the news conference. There was still a chance to improve.
After everything was done, the heads of the various departments began to chat. They communicated with each other to see if there was anything they could help each other with.
Jiang Yuan said to Chang You, “Boss Chang, how should we arrange the news conference for the new cell phone? Why don’t you go up and talk?”
He looked hesitant.
That was because the news conference on E1 had been hosted by Chang You previously. What’s more, it has been very effective. That ultra-long speed recital had even caused a wave of imitations online. Some people even felt that Chang You’s recital was better than a solo crosstalk.
However, Jiang Yuan knew himself very well. He felt that he did not have Chang You’s eloquence.
The news conference was the most important part before the cell phone was released. If the cell phone itself was done well but Jiang Yuan himself did not explain the standard, it would affect the cell phone’s popularity and sales volume. Wouldn’t that be a burden?
Thus, Jiang Yuan wanted Chang You to go up and give the lecture.
Chang You shook his head. “You’re the person-in-charge of Otto Technologies now. Of course, you’re the one to get up to present!”
“Actually,the powerpoint was done completely under Boss Pei’s guidance when I held the E1 cell phone conference previously. It was all thanks to Boss Pei that the live effect was so good.”
“Therefore, you don’t have to belittle yourself. You haven’t even done it yet. Why are you assuming that you can’t do it?”
“If you’re really not confident, ask Boss Pei. He will definitely give you a perfect plan.”
Jiang Yuan still felt a little lightheaded after hearing Chang You’s words, but his confidence had increased greatly.
“Alright, Boss Chang. I’ll find some time at the end of this month to ask Boss Pei about the cell phone’s news conference.”
April 6th, Friday…
“Phew, it’s finally done!”
Qiao Liang took off his earphones and looked at the edited and embellished video file. He heaved a sigh of relief.
The new episode of Trash Games Diss has already been completed. This episode was mainly about the “humiliation of the domestic game” and “Mission and Choice”. The content of the video was nothing more than to re-introduce the trivial matter of Mission and Choice.
To be honest, Qiao Liang was not 100% satisfied with this episode.
That was because ‘Mission and Choice’ was a game that had been bad to a certain extent and had been notorious in the history of domestically-produced games. Many video UP Masters and columnists had already criticized it. The content of their criticism was also varied. Basically, they had criticized it from all angles.
If there were other content, Qiao Liang would definitely not want to make a video for this rubbish game.
However, he had no choice. He really did not have any reliable games recently. He could only make one or two filler videos.
Of course, even though it was a filler video, Qiao Liang still maintained his usual style of ridicule. Before making the video, he seriously played the game with the lousy graphics and endless bugs for a long time. The video he produced was above average.
It was not very good, but it was not bad either.
Most of the videos that criticized Mission and Choice previously were from the perspective of a few years ago. At that time, Tengda Games had not appeared out of nowhere, and the domestic games industry had not improved as quickly as it was now. It was inevitable that there would be some negative and pessimistic feelings.
Now, outstanding works like Repent and be Saved and Struggle have appeared in domestically-produced games. Qiao Liang looked back at Mission and Choice and could naturally treat it with a teasing attitude.
This emotional change added special meaning to Qiao Liang’s rehashing.
“However, it still feels like something is missing from the last part of the video .”
“The games that I listed are all Tengda’s works. It seems a little far-fetched to say that ‘domestically-produced standalone games have fully recovered and the former humiliation of the domestic games can be dismissed with a smile’.”
“After all, I’m basically pointing out Tengda’s examples. This does not prove that ‘domestically-produced standalone games have fully recovered’. It only proves that Tengda Games is very impressive and Boss Pei is very impressive. It has nothing to do with other domestic game manufacturers.”
