The phone is yet to go through FCC certification so I can’t actually give you the full specs. The device is dubbed the “Tecno AX8”.

According to the listing, the Tecno AX8 will be powered by Mediatek’s Helio P25 (MT6757CD) chipset, along with 6GB of RAM and will not boot 8.0 Oreo out of the box , but the outdated Android 7.0 Nougat .

Tecno.. Why?

Why should a new device boot Nougat when Oreo has been released, I’m quite unimpressed with this. However it may be updated later before the official launch so you can keep your fingers crossed and wait.

The only thing I’m actually worried about here is the price for such a device. Tecno’s 4GB RAM devices cost around N90,000-N110,000. This time it’s 6GB RAM and only God knows how much they’ll sell this device for. Probably around N180,000.

I hope it won’t become an ” overrated piece of metal” . The Tecno Phantom 7 is yet to be released as well, so I’m guessing the AX8 is going to be part of a new lineup of high-end smartphones.

And Tecno Please…?

Vulnerability in RCS messaging could compromise your bank details

Published

vulnerability-in-rcs-messaging-could-compromise-your-bank-details

German security company SRLabs has recently discovered a serious security breach that could replace SMS. According to their findings, the RCS protocol has a vulnerability that allows your data to be intercepted.

Hackers could exploit this vulnerability locally or remotely. Among the information they can intercept, we have unique codes that are sent by message in two-factor authentication systems.

One of the applications of these unique codes is in the authorization of bank transactions. This means that in extreme cases your bank details could be compromised due to this vulnerability.

RCS

Android messaging should improve your domain verification system

As SRLabs points out, the most popular application supporting RCS technology is currently Android Messaging. According to its findings, this application does not properly verify domains.

This means that miscreants can spoof caller ID or DNS. Something that could mislead users and provide information they shouldn’t.

Coincidentally or not, Google revealed this week that it will accredit message senders in your app. The idea is for companies to register their contact numbers with Google so that they can validate them when communicating with users. A measure that will certainly reduce the impact of this vulnerability.

What is RCS and its differences from SMS

The acronym RCS stands for Rich Communication Service. Briefly, this protocol allows messages to be sent over the internet. The SMS protocol uses cellular networks to send messages.
