Researchers' app extends battery life when you're multitasking

  Researchers' app extends battery life when you're multitasking Battery life on a phone is bad enough most of the time, but it can be particularly rough if you're fond of split-screen multitasking. Researchers might have a way to wring a little more power out of your device, however. They've developed an app, MultiDroid, that promises to extend battery life on Android phones with OLED screens. The software dynamically lowers the brightness in non-critical parts of the screen depending on how you switch between apps and how long you've left a section idle. Fire up a YouTube video on one half of your screen, for example, and the browser you've left idle in the other half will grow darker.

What you're seeing above is the first Palm smartphone since the Pre 3 was announced in 2011. Currently codenamed 'Pepito,' this new handset is headed for Verizon, and it's the possibly the weirdest Android phone of 2018. Sporting a tiny 3 . 3 - inch 720p LCD screen

TCL is planning to revive the Palm brand by releasing a new Android smartphone. A purported render for the upcoming Palm smartphone has been leaked online and it features a very small screen.

The render for the device was shared online by Android Police. The image shows the Palm smartphone, believed to be called Pepito, sporting a small 3.3-inch LCD display. According to Android Police’s source, the display only features a 720p HD screen resolution. Inside the handset is a tiny battery that has an 800 mAh capacity. The source also shared an image of the handset’s battery.

The Palm Pepito appears to be unusually small, especially with smartphones today touting displays that are larger than 6 inches. The Palm smartphone is so small that its screen is actually smaller than the display on the Pre 3, the last Palm phone released when the brand was still owned by HP, as pointed out by The Verge. The HP Pre 3 was equipped with a 3.55-inch display.

The Palm Pepito smartphone is said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor and comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. There’s no information yet if the device will have other storage and RAM configurations, but that seems likely. However, it’s also possible that some configurations of the Palm smartphone may only be available depending on region and carrier. The popular rumor right now is that the device will be sold through Verizon in the United States.

Many Android devices ship with firmware vulnerabilities, researchers find

  Many Android devices ship with firmware vulnerabilities, researchers find Asus, Essential, LG, and ZTE have all vowed to patch security flaws found by mobile security firm Kryptowire, according to Wired. Researchers found bugs in the firmware of 10 separate devices carried across the major American carriers, according Wired, which saw an early version of Kryptowire’s report. The security lapses could lead to everything from letting an attacker lock someone out of their device, to getting control over their microphone and more — though most of the attacks that the researchers detailed required users to download some sort of malicious app before they could take advantage of the holes present in the firmware.

Going back to the design of the phone, the Palm Pepito appears to have a single camera on its back and another single camera up front. Unfortunately, there is no information about the camera sensors that the device is equipped with yet. The back of the phone also features the Palm logo, while the right side of the deice seems to house the power button.

There’s no word yet on what materials are being used to build this phone, but based on the render, it seems like TCL is going for a metal and glass combo for the Palm Pepito. The phone will also be available in titanium and gold color options in the U.S. On the software side of things, the Palm Pepito is said to be running Android 8.1 Oreo.

The Palm Android smartphone is a low-end device with a small screen and a small battery, but it could still be hiding a few surprises that might convince people to get it. At the very least, the device should arrive with a cheap price that can make it a great back-up phone.
