The dual-screen Nubia X is official in China

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

The history of Android is peppered with the occasional dual-screen phone, but none of them have made an impact beyond shock value. None of those secondary screens have solved a problem well enough to be a success, but Nubia is the latest to try with the Nubia X. This phone has a 6.26-inch LCD on the front with a 93.6% screen-to-body ratio. A smaller OLED display lives on the back of the phone, eliminating the need for a front-facing camera.

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018

The revived Nokia under HMD started with just a few phones a couple of years back, but now it seems to launch a new device every other day. The new Nokia X7 is official in China with almost-flagship specs and a competitive price. You might be able to get the same piece of hardware elsewhere later—we expect it to launch as the Nokia 7.1 Plus outside China.

This phone has a sizeable 6.2-inch 1080p LCD with an 18.7:9 aspect ratio.

[Update x2: Amazon, Apple, Supermicro, and Chinese govt. issue denials] Chinese government snuck secret surveillance chip into servers at Apple, Amazon, and dozens more according to report

Friday, October 5th, 2018

Take this with the proverbial grain of salt, but Bloomberg has published a detailed investigative report today alleging that a list of U.S. Companies, including Amazon and Apple, suffered a security intrusion via hardware infiltration. This isn't a hack in the software sense, it's a result of literal physical modification to server motherboards at the time of manufacturing by subcontractors in China, allegedly coerced by operatives working for the Chinese People’s Liberation Army — making this a potentially state-backed attack.

Google has been largely absent from China for several years now, but last month, news broke that it was working on censored versions of Search and News for the country. The reveal sparked outrage, both inside and outside of Google, and at least a few employees have left the company as a result.

Over the past few weeks, details have emerged about Google's upcoming products for China. After largely exiting the country eight year ago, Google is now working on a censored news application and search engine for Chinese users.
