Motorola’s Moto X4 Rumored To Arrive In Fall In Nimbus Blue | Androidheadlines.com

Technology
Motorola’s Moto X4 is now rumored to arrive in the Fall in a Nimbus Blue color. While the device has already been leaked in both Gold and Silver colors over the past few months, there hasn’t been any mention of a Nimbus Blue color until now. That being said, this would make three potential color options for the upcoming mid-range smartphone from Motorola and Lenovo. The rumor does not mention any specific time frame for the arrival of this new phone, so the actual announcement date is still unclear. Having said that, the rumor does at least give some form of information as to a general release window, whereas before the rumor surfaced many thought that Motorola and Lenovo would be announcing the Moto X4 alongside the recently announced Moto Z2 Force which Motorola recently held an even

BlackBerry has just announced the Limited Edition BlackBerry KEYone in India, following its global announcement which occurred back in February. Optiemus will actually manufacture and sell the device for BlackBerry in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, it seems, and aside from that, this phone is basically identical to the global model. The BlackBerry KEYone is made out of metal, while it comes with a grippy back side, a rubbery material of sorts. This handset also comes with a full QWERTY keyboard, and that is one of its main selling points. Aside from that keyboard, the BlackBerry KEYone also offers a touch-sensitive display, and a set of capacitive keys. The BlackBerry KEYone sports a 4.5-inch 1620 x 1080 display, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. Qualcomm’s

The toughest thing to convey to newcomers at the DefCon Voting Village in Las Vegas this weekend? Just how far they could go with hacking the voting machines set up on site. "Break things, just try to pace yourself," said Matt Blaze, a security researcher from the University of Pennsylvania who co-organized the workshop. DefCon veterans were way ahead of him. From the moment the doors opened, they had cracked open plastic cases and tried to hot-wire devices that wouldn't boot. Within two minutes, democracy-tech researcher Carsten Schürmann used a novel vulnerability to get remote access to a WINVote machine.The Voting Village organizers—including Harri Hursti, an election technology researcher from Finland, and Sandy Clark from the University of Pennsylvania—had set up about a dozen US dig

Samsung unveils CHG90 super-ultrawide 32:9 monitor: HANDS-ON, PHOTOS

Technology
Samsung When I first tried an ultrawide monitor in 2016, I was hooked because of its applications in both gaming and productivity. Ultrawide monitors are a relatively new category of monitors that are, indeed, wider than regular ones. But on Friday, Samsung introduced the CHG90, the first monitor in the new "super ultrawide" category, and it's outrageously wide. The CHG90 has an aspect ratio of 32:9. For comparison, ultrawide monitors have a 21:9 aspect ratio and normal monitors have a 16:9 aspect ratio. The CHG90 is part of Samsung's gaming line of monitors that come with specs and features that gamers can appreciate, like quick response times and AMD's FreeSync 2 technology. Check out the CHG90 and see for yourself how crazy this thing is: ...
