Researchers from the Tel Aviv University of Israel said that some Galaxy S8, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S21 smartphones did not store cryptographic keys correctly, allowing attackers to easily extract information stored in the smartphone’s memory, including sensitive data such as passwords.
ARM-based Android smartphones rely on TrustZone’s hardware support for the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) to implement security-sensitive features. TEE runs a separate TrustZone Isolated Operating System (TZOS) in parallel with Android.
The researchers described in detail the ways in which they managed to bypass protection on Samsung devices. For the full text of the report, check out this link. However, the source adds that the problems have already been fixed by Samsung, which became aware of the vulnerability shortly after its discovery. The first patch was released in August 2021, and in October the vulnerability was fixed with the second security patch.
However, users are advised to regularly check for fresh updates and install them.
Americans are more satisfied with the old and very primitive LG smartphone than the iPhone 11 Pro Max. ACSI rating published
The American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) has published a press release on the satisfaction of Americans with certain brands and devices. In this document, we are most interested in smartphones.
And here the leader was the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. It could be said that this is unexpected, since in the US Samsung is still about half behind Apple in sales, but in fact a year earlier, the Samsung device was also in the lead in a similar list, and two years ago the company’s smartphones occupied all the first three places.
Be that as it may, the flagship of 2020 became the leader, which at the time of release was scolded for various shortcomings and features. Unexpectedly, LG Aristo 3, unknown outside the US, took second place. Moreover, this is a budget smartphone in 2019 on the SoC Snapdragon 425! How he even got on the leaderboard is completely unclear. Closes the top three iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Also on the leaderboard are HTC U12+, Pixel 4 and iPhone XR. In general, the list turned out to be as diverse as possible.
If we talk about brands, here Samsung and Apple share the first line of the rating with 80 points each. The top five also includes Google, Motorola and LG.
The photo allows you to compare the dimensions of all models of the iPhone 14 line and the dimensions of the camera units
A photo of covers allegedly intended for Apple’s new generation smartphones has appeared on the Web. The authenticity of the image cannot be verified, but in general everything looks plausible.
The two larger cases are for iPhone 14 Max and 14 Pro Max. The other two are made for the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro.
The difference in camera cutouts indicates that the lower models are likely to retain the two-sensor configuration, while the older ones will get three. At the same time, if we compare these cases with cases for current models, it becomes clear that the dimensions of the camera blocks will grow again, which allows us to hope for even better photos and videos. Recall that numerous rumors suggest that the older smartphones of the new generation will receive new 48-megapixel image sensors for the main cameras.
120W charging, 120Hz screen, 256GB of storage, and fancy design in a $300 smartphone. Infinix Note 12 VIP introduced
Gradually, technologies that were just recently available only in some flagship smartphones are appearing in low-cost devices. And if there are doubts about the 10x optical zoom in a $ 250 smartphone, then there is no doubt about the Infinix Note 12 VIP.
And this smartphone stands out because at a price of $ 300 it supports 120-watt charging! The manufacturer focuses on 103 protection functions that should secure the device. The battery capacity is 4500 mAh. Infinix says it only takes 17 minutes to fully charge.
But this is not all that the new product will please for its money. For example, it also uses a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with Full HD + resolution with support for 120 Hz. In addition, there is 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory. A microSD card slot is present.
The main camera of the smartphone is characterized by a resolution of 108 megapixels. There’s also a 13MP ultra-wide and a depth sensor. The resolution of the front camera is 16 megapixels.
But the platform here can be disappointing, given the price. This is MediaTek Helio G96. The manufacturer also notes a high-quality Dual X-Axis vibration motor, a nine-layer graphene cooling system, stereo speakers and a headphone jack. Dimensions are 163.5 x 76.7 x 7.9 mm with a weight of 198 g.
