Samsung patent reveals rival to folding smartphone Motorola Moto Razr 2019 1

It was at the presentation of its new Interface that Samsung first unveiled a competing smartphone for the future folding handset, Motorola Moto Razr 2019.

Although Moto Razr 2019 is unofficial, yesterday we had real smartphone images that make us excited for the future. Well, Samsung knows the demand that such a device can generate, so nothing better than making yours.

The patent shows a “normal” device. However, we see that there is a clear “hinge” in the center of the device. This will be where the smartphone theoretically will double.

This means that “shell” smartphones are about to return to active. One way to have a big device, but comfortable to have in your pocket.

We also have the exterior of the equipment that gives us a smaller second screen that will be as a display. Like the Motorola Moto Razr 2019, it is also expected that this small screen will be more interactive than just showing the time and notifications.

That is, it is believed that the device will have only one camera. To take a selfie you can do it with the main camera and the closed phone. The small screen will serve as a mirror.

Motorola Moto Razr 2019 could be the future of folding smartphones

I have long said that a device such as the Motorola Moto Razr 2019 is more important than a Galaxy Fold or Mate X. Folders so far turn into tablet, but the Android system is far from productive in a large screen format

That is, it is much more valid, in my opinion, to transform a large smartphone with a smaller size. I’m tired of having to have a lump in my pocket and I shouldn’t be the only one.

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.
