Blackview Launches The Perfect Android Version Of The iPhone X 1

When it comes to cloning we know that Chinese companies never cease to amaze us. If you can’t buy it why not make it  (lol)😂😂😂. Leagoo  will also be releasing their own version but I think the BlackView version is the real deal.

Even Blackview does not innovate too much with the name of the device, which is called Blackview X.They also seem to nail the materials, with metal and glass for a device that may cost less than 350 dollars,

It will also be the first smartphone in the world to have a panel of 5.85 inches in  a 19:9 screeen to body ratio.

The phone will be only 8.5 millimeters thick, and in its rear there are the two sensors for its dual camera which is accompanied by a double LED flash. Notably, there’s no finger print scanner.  I hope they didn’t clone the phone along with Face ID. I do hope there’s a fingerprint scanner under the screen.

Details about the specs are still a bit shady right now, I’m guessing it’ll have  a USB Type-C connector and its chipset is probably signed by MediaTek, although this hasn’t been confirmed.

It may also launch with Android 8.0 Oreo

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.
