Google is keeping the internet safe with a new project. Meanwhile Xiaomi is expanding to India and Huawei is ready to announce a new device. Let’s jump into today’s morning news and fill you in!
The internet can be a dangerous place. There is a plethora of hackers, malware, viruses and other malicious software all over the web. We should all be cautious and use a healthy anti-virus, but this still leaves a bit of risk. This is why Google has announced Project Zero.
The new team at Google’s HQ aims to keep the internet safe by trying to improve the security on any software that is depended upon by a lot of people. There will be no boundaries and their work will be as transparent as possible. Google will report all discovered bugs in an external database.
Opinion: In a way, Google has become the most important power in the internet. It’s certainly nice to see them taking responsibility for trying to keep it healthy. After all, their business does depend on the web.
Xiaomi is ready to take on India with the Mi 3 and they have finally announced the device’s availability and price. The Xiaomi Mi 3 will be sold exclusively via Flipkart for the price of 13,999 Rupees (about $233 USD).
Release date is set for July 22, which seems to be the magic number this month. For those who don’t remember, specs include a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 5-inch 1080p display, 13MP/2MP cameras, and a 2050 mAh battery.
Opinion: India is ready for some Xiaomi love! Don’t forget the high demand on these devices, though. Xiaomi has been selling out its smartphones in a matter of minutes, wherever they go, so be ready.
We recently heard Huawei was planning to join the party and announce a new device this July 22nd. We had no idea what the announcement would be, but now we have a clue from the manufacturer and are almost sure of what they are ready to announce.
The company has released an image teaser with a huge “X” in it. This means we will most likely be seeing the Huawei Honor X2 at next week’s announcement. We have no idea what specs could be included, but we don’t need to wait much longer to find out.
Opinion: While I am oping for the Huawei Honor X2 to be announced, we could also be looking at a Mediapad X2. We will let you know more as soon as we find out the details!
