More Photos Of (Probably) The Galaxy Note 5 Leak Via Chinese Accessory Company

There's a big Samsung event in New York City next month. It will probably be where the company announces its next-generation Galaxy Note series - though they seem to be a little early this time around, the latter half of the year is when Sammy likes to bust out its big phones. We've already seen some convincing photos of two phones identified as the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ (a super-sized version of the S6 Edge without the Note line's compulsory stylus). Now we're seeing even more of the former.

Vast Majority Of Android Devices Are Vulnerable To 'Stagefright' Exploit That Can Be Executed Via Text Message, According To Researchers

In a blog post published today by the researchers at Zimperium Mobile Security, the group divulged an extremely widespread security vulnerability that can be exploited with nothing more than a targeted MMS message. The hole exists in the part of the Android operating system called Stagefright, which handles the processing of certain types of multimedia.

How it works

If targeted, the hypothetical hacker needs only to send an MMS message, which in many cases doesn't even need to be read before the attacker gains access to the victim's microphone and camera.

Samsung Announces An Unpacked Event For NYC August 13th

After rumors that Samsung may be turning the clock ahead on the Galaxy Note 5, the manufacturer has distributed invitations to an Unpacked event in New York City on August 13th.

Samsung says "The next Galaxy is coming," which presumably does refer to the flagship phablet (and potentially the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus). If we do see the Note 5, the event will mark a departure from Samsung's usual announcement venue at IFA in Berlin.

Whatever happens, we'll be there to get a look at what Samsung unpacks. For those who aren't at the event, it will be live-streamed on the SamsungMobile YouTube channel starting at 11am Eastern.

Startup Nextbit Plans To Launch A Smartphone, Will Offer Details In The Coming Weeks

Nextbit hasn't been in the news much since its public debut last year, but that's mostly because its services are geared toward OEMs. The last we heard from Nextbit, its Baton multi-device app sync service was entering the testing phase on CyanogenMod. That was last year, but now the company is taking on a new challenge—hardware. Nextbit plans to launch a phone.

Chrome Beta v45 Comes With Support For Media Playback System Notifications, Lots Of Under The Hood Changes

The latest release of Chrome Beta doesn't include many big, user-facing changes, but is instead mostly filled with incremental improvements to long-term development goals. The one goodie for end users that you may notice in normal use is the newly-added ability for websites to give you an Android notification with play and pause buttons to control audio.

For websites using up-to-date APIs, audio and video that is over 5 seconds long will result in a notification being displayed for easier control. I think of this somewhat similarly to the desktop version's indicator for noisy tabs.
