Will it be the most unusual smartphone on the market? Nothing is preparing to release the first smartphone next year

It looks like the young company Nothing, created by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, is really getting ready to enter the smartphone market.

The source claims that the company can release its first child early next year. This is also indicated by the recent announcement of Nothing’s partnership with Qualcomm, and you can also recall that at the beginning of the year the company acquired the Essential, which failed to gain a foothold in the market, which was created by Andy Rubin.

There are no details yet, but the partnership with Qualcomm hints at using some of the Snapdragon platforms. Besides, taking into account the design of the first product and the idea of ​​the company as a whole, the appearance of the device will probably not be the most ordinary one. Perhaps it will be the most unusual production smartphone in 2022.

The source also says that Nothing will release its first external battery, Nothing Power (1), and it will be released before the smartphone.

Apple, Samsung and Xiaomi smartphones cannot do that. There was a video with the disassembly process of the modular Fairphone 4 and strength tests

Published

The modular and most maintainable smartphone Fairphone 4 fell into the hands of blogger JerryRigEverything.

In this case, we are interested not only in his strength tests, although there is usually only one useful of them, but also in the video of the disassembly process.

As you can see, the smartphone is disassembled and assembled as easily as possible, and even the display is dismantled simply by unscrewing a few bolts. There is no need to talk about the simplicity of the battery replacement process. No other device in this segment offers this.

At the same time, modularity did not affect the strength in any way. Thanks to the metal frame, the smartphone practically does not bend, which is very good. The plastic of the back cover does not suffer from this effect either.

Recall that Fairphone 4 is based on SoC Snapdragon 750G and is equipped with an IPS screen, 48-megapixel main camera and a 3905 mAh battery.

The largest cyberattack on US government officials has been carried out. State Department employees’ iPhones have been jailbroken

Published

Reuters reports that at least nine iPhones belonging to US State Department officials have been compromised by an unknown attacker using spyware developed by Israel’s NSO Group. This information was confirmed by four sources at once.

According to two sources, the hacks that have occurred in the past few months have affected either US officials in Uganda or people dealing with that country’s affairs in East Africa. Previously, spyware based on NSO technology had already featured in the news with potential targets, including US officials, but it was unclear if hacking attempts had been made or if they were successful.

The NSO Group said in a statement that the company has no confirmation that their tools were used to hack. However, the company has revoked access for the relevant customers and will investigate based on a request from Reuters.

If our investigation shows that these actions really happened with NSO tools, such a client will be permanently blocked and legal proceedings will begin. NSO will also cooperate with any relevant government agency and provide full information that we have.

NSO Group

It is not yet known who carried out this attack against the employees of the US State Department, but it is known that NSO Group sells its products to government law enforcement agencies and intelligence agencies. However, the company itself is not directly involved in surveillance operations. NSO Group software has been used repeatedly to hack smartphones of government officials, journalists, activists, academics and embassies.

It is the largest cyberattack on US government officials, but neither the State Department nor officials from the Ugandan Embassy in Washington have yet issued a statement.

Apple previously filed a lawsuit against the Israeli NSO Group and its parent company to prosecute them for spying on and harassing Apple users.
