The Poco brand today officially unveiled the flagship smartphone Poco F4 GT. The novelty has an excellent combination of price and performance, but we already know these very characteristics very well. Poco F4 GT is a rebadged Redmi K50 Gaming Edition. At the same time, there are not even any differences in terms of design.
Poco F4 GT received SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 with two evaporation chambers with a total area of 4860 mm2. The smartphone is equipped with a 4700 mAh battery with support for 120 W wired charging (original L-cable included). Poco notes that it takes 17 minutes to fully charge. Redmi cited the same data, announcing the K50 Gaming Edition.
The Poco F4 GT retained the retractable magnetically actuated side keys. They are useful for both gamers and ordinary users, as they can be assigned to call any applications. For example, a flashlight or a camera.
The AMOLED screen is characterized by a diagonal of 6.67 inches, Full HD + resolution and a frame rate of 120 Hz. The main camera – with sensors with a resolution of 64, 13 and 2 megapixels. The front camera is with a 20-megapixel sensor. The software platform is MIUI 13 based on Android 12.
Poco compares the new flagship with OnePlus 10 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S22+. On the official slides, the F4 GT outperforms both competitors, but at the same time its price is half as much.
The base version of the Poco F4 GT with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory is priced at 500 euros for first buyers, the variant with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory costs 600 euros.
Smartphones of the Xiaomi 12 line will soon cease to be the newest flagships of the company. Production of Xiaomi 12T and 12T Pro has already begun
According to recent data, Xiaomi has already begun production of a new line of smartphones. We are talking about the Xiaomi 12T and 12T Pro models.
The source says that production has started in several countries at once, so the announcement is just around the corner.
Unfortunately, the insider did not add anything about the parameters of the devices. Previously, there was information that Xiaomi 12T Pro will be a copy of Redmi K50S Pro for the global market, and Xiaomi 12T will be a renamed Redmi K50S. By the way, these Redmi models have also not been presented yet, so we don’t really know anything about them. The older one is supposed to get Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, and the younger one will be based on one of the MediaTek platforms. Quite possibly on the Dimensity 8100.
As for the source, it is the insider Mukul Sharma, who, for example, was the first to talk about Xiaomi Mi Note 10 with a 108-megapixel camera.
The cheapest Samsung smartphone with 5G will come to Europe even cheaper than in the US. Galaxy A13 5G prices revealed
The Samsung Galaxy A13 5G smartphone, which has been on sale in the US for about six months, will soon enter the European market. And it looks like it will be even cheaper.
According to recent data, the basic version of the Galaxy A13 5G in Europe will cost 180 euros. For comparison, in the US, they ask for $ 250 for a smartphone. True, we are talking about different modifications. In the US, only the version with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash memory is sold. And in Europe, this will cost 210 euros.
But there will also be a version with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of flash memory, for which they will just ask for only 180 euros. There will also be a top-end with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory for 240 euros.
Recall that the Galaxy A13 5G is equipped with a 6.5-inch 90-Hz HD + screen, SoC Dimensity 700 and a 5000 mAh battery.
It turned out that even a turned off iPhone can be hacked
Researchers at the Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany have found that the iPhone can be at risk even when turned off.
When iPhone is turned off, most wireless chips, including Bluetooth, NFC, and Ultra-Wideband (UWB), continue to work for up to 24 hours. So the phone can still be found through Find My and you can still access credit cards and digital keys. These wireless chips have direct access to the secure element and can be used to install malware on the iPhone even when iOS is down.
Wireless chips operate in low power mode (Low-Power Mode, LPM). This is not to be confused with Power Saving Mode, which extends battery life. LPM support is implemented in hardware, which means that this issue cannot be fixed with a software-side fix.
Researchers conducted a security analysis of the LPM features introduced in iOS 15 and found that the Bluetooth LPM firmware could be modified to run malware on the iPhone. These loopholes have not been previously considered and could allow hackers with system-level access to track someone’s location or trigger new features on the phone. The problem seems to stem from the fact that LPM features were designed with functionality in mind, and there seemed to be little attention given to possible threats outside of the intended applications.
Disabling Find My turns turned off iPhones into tracking devices, and the implementation in the Bluetooth firmware is not immune to manipulation. Tracking properties can be surreptitiously modified by attackers with system-level access.
Ars Technica notes that most iPhone users have nothing to worry about, since a jailbroken iPhone is required to infect third-party software. However, the security hole can be exploited by spyware such as Pegasus.
The results of the research were transferred to Apple, which did not comment on the situation.
