Qualcomm has finally unveiled its next generation single-chip system dubbed Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Many manufacturers have already confirmed that they will release their smartphones on this platform. Among them was Realme.
The fastest growing smartphone maker has confirmed that the Realme GT 2 Pro will be one of the first smartphones to use Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The company had previously stated that the GT 2 Pro would be the first real flagship from Realme to surpass the X50 Pro and all GT smartphones.
According to Chase Xu, vice president of Realme, the development of the device began a few months ago and will eventually become “a truly high-end flagship product that will exceed the expectations of users around the world.”
Realme GT 2 Pro powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC has already been spotted on AnTuTu with over a million points. The phone is expected to have 125W wired charging support, up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, up to 512GB UFS 3.1 flash, 6.51-inch 120Hz AMOLED screen, 32MP selfie camera and 50 megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization.
Earlier, Xiaomi announced that the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 smartphone would be the Xiaomi 12.
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.
