Users of the Google Play online application repository are exposed to a new Trojan virus that can steal users' personal data. But also their money in real-time has been detected in 24 applications.

An article published on the Medium platform warns. The virus has been called Joker and was detected by the company's malware analyst CSIS Security Group, Aleksejs Kuprins.

It is estimated that about 37 countries, including the US, Argentina, Brazil, and Spain, may be affected by the virus.

The virus is intended to silently enroll users in premium subscription services and thus steal them up to $ 7 per week, as detected by Kuprins in the case of Denmark.

Kuprins stressed that it is difficult to notice the existence of these subscriptions unless a user is very diligent in verifying their monthly credit card statements.

Also, international reports warn that ‘Joker’ can steal the victim’s contact list and information on their device.

The Google search engine has already removed the 24 applications from its store. But Kuprins warns about the importance of reviewing the transaction history. As well as paying close attention to the list of permissions to which one or another app has access.

In April 2019, more than 200 applications infected by a malicious code nicknamed “Simbad” were also detected, which were available in the official Google Play store.

The main functionality of the malware is to display advertising, and although the applications were removed, users who installed any of them must delete them manually.

More megapixels in the cell phone camera does not mean better photos

The truth is that the belief that more megapixels will give us a higher quality photo is false.

The mere fact that a cell phone camera has more megapixels is not a unique condition for you to achieve better photos.

While the number guides many consumers because ultimately, five megapixels do not sound as good as eight, if the camera produces excellent photos, this is not an express guide.

The secret behind this way of labeling a cell phone camera only states that the number of megapixels alone is a lousy way to predict photographic performance.

As the American Scientific American magazine states, to explain this well, we have to keep in mind that the megapixel figure refers to the resolution of the camera.

The resolution affects image size, not quality. It gives us an idea of how much we can enlarge an image without losing sharpness.

Meanwhile, the dual cameras, so popular lately, aim to improve both the depth effect and the focus on the images.

That is, if you want to print your pho…

We tested the new Google Pixel 4 XL, and this is what we think.

On October 15, Google launched its new flagship phone, the Pixel 4. It has arrived in two almost identical models, except for its size.

Since Pixel 3 came out last year, it became my phone on the market, primarily because of its camera. I discovered that it is not perfect. And that it has some details that I hope have some things fixed on the new Google flagship phone.

Could it be that the new Google phone will become the best in the market and will stand out again for its camera? To answer these questions, I have tried the new Pixel 4 XL for several days, and I tell you all my impressions.

Google has taken pains to offer a more refined design in Pixel 4, although, in essence, it remains the same. On the front, you will find a camera to take selfies and a smarter and smarter screen, since it is now able to recognize your face to unlock your phone.

However, it still has the traditional bezels that Google shows on their phones, and that currently looks a bit obsolete.

In the back, you …

Google will have its first smartphone with 5G.

A publication revealed that the Pixel 5G is already in the testing phase and could be presented next week with the new Google Pixel 4 cell phone model.

As the saying would say, between heaven and earth, there is nothing hidden, and if the technology is the thing is even worse. And it is that an Asian publication revealed that the Pixel 5G is already in the testing phase and could be presented next week with the new Google Pixel 4 cell phone model.

When next week Google presents its new model, some more surprises could appear for the public and its competitors, with its first 5G mobile phone.

As reported, the new model of your smartphone next to the clock with internet access and the next laptop, all October 15, which is known, will still have a 4G network.

However, if the speculations were correct, Google would win the race to Apple by seeing who launches a smartphone with 5G first.

The fifth-generation network (5G) is a fundamental part of the next stage of wireless technology.
