Galaxy S5 zoom leaked

Samsung Galaxy K camera samples:

Claimed Samsung Galaxy K camera samples have surfaced online. The allegedly Galaxy S4 Zoom successor, being called Galaxy K, is reportedly carrying a less protruding lens while keeping the 10x optical zoom abilities. The Galaxy K camera leaked images also show a less bulkier design as the compactness was much desired by the consumers. Also known as, Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom, Galaxy K camera samples are spotted on a Dutch website.Galaxy S5 zoom leaked image

If Samsung would be able to fit in a decent camera inside the compact Galaxy S5 Zoom or not, it is yet to be seen. However, the alleged Galaxy K camera sample image looks good enough with a focus on the background.

Samsung Galaxy S5 fingerprint sensor hacked:

Deja vu, anyone? Very much following the footsteps set in the mud by Apple’s current flagship handset, the iPhone 5s, Samsung Galaxy S5′s fingerprint sensor too has been hacked. Congratulations, everyone! Sarcasm aside, this is quite sad taking in consideration that Samsung was expected to up the game of biometric readers after seeing how Apple’s Touch ID wentGalaxy S5 fingerprint sensor hacked

While the fingerprint reader add an extra layer of security, they also make it more vulnerable and pose more security flaws if not implemented well. As seen with iPhone 5s Touch ID, it was possible to hack the fingerprint using a lifted fingerprint. In the similar fashion, SRLabs have been able to show how a faker fingerprint can be used to gain unauthorized access on Samsung’s latest Galaxy S5.

What is more troubling though is that Galaxy S5 is seems to be even more vulnerable than the iPhone 5s since there is no requirement of a passcode after a fingerprint entry. Apple iPhone 5s Touch ID requires a password the first time you boot a device, Samsung has set no such security restriction making it easier to hack into the SGS5 fingerprint sensor. Even after a reboot, Samsung requires no password and a simple swipe of a finger will unlock all of your phone to someone else.

You should be more alarmed about this pretty easy hack if you had intended to use Samsung Galaxy S5 to make PayPal transactions as no password is required to access PayPal and make payments through the app. If you happen to lose your Galaxy S5, or it gets stolen, it is strongly recommended that you use Android Device Manager to wipe your Android handset remotely in order to be safe from any more financial losses.

However, PayPal reaffirms its confidence in a statement to BGR:

While we take the findings from Security Research Labs very seriously, we are still confident that fingerprint authentication offers an easier and more secure way to pay on mobile devices than passwords or credit cards. PayPal never stores or even has access to your actual fingerprint with authentication on the Galaxy S5. The scan unlocks a secure cryptographic key that serves as a password replacement for the phone. We can simply deactivate the key from a lost or stolen device, and you can create a new one. PayPal also uses sophisticated fraud and risk management tools to try to prevent fraud before it happens. However, in the rare instances that it does, you are covered by our purchase protection policy.

It is yet to be seen if Samsung could bring some software update to Galaxy S5 in order to address this hack by requiring a password or adding any additional security.

Graphene is slated as the major breakthrough of this century. Infact it could very well propel the semiconductor a couple of decades easily (compared to the performance trend via Moore’s law ). Graphene transistors are more than capable of being clocked at 500Ghz so you get the idea of what Samsung is claiming to have achieved: a replicateable production process of Graphene nodes.

Intel Graphene TransistorsGraphene.

Experimental gFET Graphene Production – Scientific breakthrough of this century to be used in CPUs* of wearable devices

OK, I admit, I was being slightly sarcastic when I wrote the headline. It seems sort of ironic that if Samsung’s claims turn out to be true then the first Graphene processors will be in future wearable devices instead of lets say, desktop computers. Of course, Samsung can be forgiven for saying this considering its a primarily mobile company after all, but it still stings to a PC Enthusiast like me. Graphene, aka the miracle material of the century, to be used in future smart watches; seems like an extract from Douglas Adam’s Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Anyways, enough of my rant. On with the specifics.

This breakthrough was claimed at the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology and Sungkyunkwan University in South Korea. Basically they used a common silicon wafer with Germanium substrate to manufacture a mono layer mono crystal Graphene impression on top of it and then remove the silicon wafer (and germanium) from below. The silicon wafer can then be reused which is pretty great. Also since the Graphene is removed from the germanium using a completely dry process the Graphene is completely wrinkle free which basically means that the construction of the crystal is completely clean and low in defects. Since both the germanium substrate and silicon wafer can now be reused ( in previously known production processes the germanium substrate had to be burned off) it will exponentially increase, mass production capabilities. Samsung has started production of Graphene Field Effect Transistors (gFET)
