Rumors that Geely will be producing smartphones appeared in early 2021. Then it was said that for a faster entry into the market, Geely could buy Meizu. And already in the middle of last year, the parent company Zhejiang Geely Holding organized a subsidiary, Hubei Xingji Shidai Technology Co Ltd, which was assigned to create smartphones. China has now approved mobile phone design patents as part of applications filed by Hubei Xingji Shidai Technology Co Ltd. The sketches below show what the first Geely smartphone will look like.

There are two design options for the back panel, but the differences are only in the nuances of the edging of the main camera block and modules. The modules themselves are placed in the center in the shape of a triangle. Apparently, a small circle on the left shows a microphone, but two larger circles, on the right and below, can symbolize a flash and some kind of additional system. For example, a laser autofocus assistant. The front panel is without any frills – with an embedded front camera in the center and minimal screen bezels, which, apparently, will be flat, not curved.

There is no information about the date of the premiere or release of the first Geely smartphone. But earlier it was said about the release of the first model by 2023 and the desire to sell about 3 million smartphones in the first year.

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

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.

It turned out that even a turned off iPhone can

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.

It turned out that even a turned off iPhone can be hacked

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.
