OnePlus “Mistakenly” Announced The Arrival Of Gemini Ultra On Its Smartphones, Issues Revised Statement

1 month ago 19


Remember how OnePlus apologized for mistakenly advertising the UFS 3.1 storage in the OnePlus 12R as UFS 4.0? Something similar has happened again. At the Google Cloud Next ’24 event, OnePlus announced its ties with Google for bringing the Gemini 1.0 Ultra, Google’s largest and most capable model for highlighting complex tasks, to its smartphones later this year. In fact, the company mentioned that it aims to be the first to provide the LLM on a handset. However, a hot moment after the announcement, OnePlus sent out another release, saying it “mistakenly mentioned the debut” of the Gemini Ultra.

OnePlus Omits “Ultra” From Its Revised Statement

It is important to mention that it takes weeks of planning to finalize announcements that will go through at an event, particularly as big as Google Cloud Next ’24. That said, the fresh statement from OnePlus, published by Financial Express in their latest report, calls the Gemini Ultra announcement a mistake. “The press release mistakenly mentioned the debut of Gemini Ultra Large Model on smartphones,” says OnePlus. The company further clarifies that “Google and OnePlus have teamed up to introduce the Gemini Models on smartphones.”

The Company Might Use Gemini Nano Or Pro Models

Google’s Gemini large language model has three models: Nano, Pro, and Ultra. While Nano is the most efficient model for on-device tasks, Pro is the best for scaling across a wide range of complex tasks. Gemini Ultra, on the other hand, is the company’s most powerful model, and it outperforms human experts on MMLU (massive multitask language understanding). Initially, OnePlus announced it would release Gemini Ultra, the top-tier LLM on its smartphone. However, in the latest press release, the company sticks with the words “Gemini Models.” 

This suggests that OnePlus will still include Google’s Gemini models on its smartphones but not the Gemini Ultra. This makes more sense, given that running the Gemini Ultra on a smartphone would require a really powerful mobile processor, especially on the company’s entry-level or mid-tier handsets. Hence, there’s a good chance that the Chinese smartphone brand will stick to the Gemini Nano on the less capable models and the Gemini Pro on smartphones with more potent chipsets. 

This remains a conjecture at the moment, though, and OnePlus has only confirmed that it will use “Gemini Models” on its smartphones. Even so, the company’s casual approach to media announcements and official literature (referring to the OnePlus 12R case) could not do any good to its reputation. It is rare for other companies to make announcements (often considered commitments) and then take a step back, as this spreads misinformation.
