It is difficult to do without Chinese imports. Even in the midst of the trade war between China and the United States. In the second quarter, 70% of the 31.8 million smartphones sold in the United States were “made in China”, according to a study by Canalys.

With 47.1% market share over the period, Apple weighs heavily in the balance. In the last three months, he has sold 15 million iPhones in his country of origin, an increase of 10% over one year. However, its smartphones are made in China. This is also the case for those of the Chinese groups Lenovo and TCL, which together represent a little less than 12% of market share.

Koreans Samsung and LG are respectively in second and third position on the American market with 23 and 11% of market share respectively. Most of their smartphone production is located in Korea and Vietnam. “Tensions between the United States and China create a lot of uncertainty for all smartphone makers except Samsung and LG», Summarize Canalys analysts.

Relocation

Donald Trump wants to encourage American companies to repatriate their production. But the positions taken by the American president have, for the moment, had very little impact, including on the iPhone manufacturer. Apple is however particularly exposed. In the United States, it is accused of having its devices manufactured in China. And in China, to be American! These two countries are also its two biggest markets.

More and more widespread, wireless chargers allow compatible phones to be charged without plugging them in, simply by placing them on a case. A significant time saving but which wastes large amounts of energy, reveals the specialized media OneZero. After a series of tests, it appeared that a full charge on a wireless device consumes 47% more electricity than a cable.

When the phone is incorrectly positioned on the charger, this energy loss can even go up to 80%. The electricity thus evaporated could power a low-consumption light bulb for a few hours. It may not seem like much, but when you add them up, these losses can reach a substantial level, which will only increase if wireless charging technologies become the norm. The stakes are high, while the environmental impact of electronic devices raises more and more questions. According to the National Digital Council, they are responsible for half of digital consumption (the rest coming from servers).

CNNum has called for “digital sobriety”, to encourage manufacturers and users to limit the ecological cost of their devices

As such, CNNum called for the “digital sobriety», To encourage manufacturers and users to limit the ecological cost of their devices. Without specifically mentioning wireless chargers, it encourages the fight against waste and reduce the consumption of energy and resources of digital technologies.

Huawei will stop production of its Kirin chips due to US sanctions

Chinese technology companies Huawei Technologies are running out of smartphones due to US sanctions. The company will be forced to stop production of its own Kirin chips next month due to sanctions. This was stated by the head of Huawei’s consumer division Richard Yu, according to the AP agency.

The United States has long accused Huawei of stealing technology and suspected spying for the Chinese government. But the Chinese company has been rejecting this for a long time. Washington last year limited Huawei’s access to US components and technology. Restrictions tightened in May this year, banning suppliers around the world from using US technology to make components for Huawei, the AP writes.

Yu said Huawei will stop producing its Kirin chips on September 15. These chips are made for the company by suppliers who need American production technology. “It’s a very big loss for us,” Yu told China Info 100. “Unfortunately, as part of the second round of US sanctions, our chip manufacturers only accepted orders until May 15th. Production will stop on September 15, “he added.

Huawei sold 240 million smartphones last year. Yu said this year’s sales volume is likely to be lower. However, he did not provide any further details, the AP agency wrote.

In the second quarter of this year, Huawei became the largest smartphone retailer in the world, according to the analytical group Canalys, when it surpassed the South Korean competitor Samsung Electronics. Huawei benefited from sales growth in the Chinese market, but saw a significant decline abroad.

They invented a cell phone with a removable screen: what is it about

According to a sketch produced by the LetsGoDigital site, the chassis has three sensors on the top and 20 pins on the bottom. This would be to connect, and power, the screen.

The separate screen would be without borders or rear camera. Also, the front would be hidden under the panel (technology that are developing several brands).

On the other hand, and eThe chassis would be a triple camera system and the flash. It is not known at the moment what more can be stored there.

USA presents cyber strategy against China

Dhe US government has unveiled a broad-based initiative aimed at restricting Chinese computing technology at all levels, not just in the United States. It’s about popular apps, cloud services, telecommunication networks, submarine cables and smartphones.

“The Clean Network Program is the Trump administration’s comprehensive approach to protecting the privacy of our citizens and the most sensitive information of our companies from aggressive interference by malicious actors such as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP),” said the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a message.

He also made it clear that Washington intends to forge an international alliance on this matter against the second largest economy in the world. “The United States calls on our allies and partners in government and industry around the world to join the growing tide to protect our data from the CCP surveillance state and other malicious entities,” said Pompeo. And he went on to conclude: “Building a clean fortress around our citizens’ data will ensure the security of all our nations.”

Printing on Huawei, Tiktok and Wechat

The announcement, which is also published on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, explicitly states the name of the Chinese network equipment supplier and smartphone manufacturer Huawei mentioned. For months, the government in Washington has been putting pressure on allied countries in Europe to forego the Group’s offers to build the new 5G mobile communications standard.

In Europe, the British government has meanwhile followed suit, the French too, and in Germany a final decision is still pending. Washington argues that Huawei’s technology offers the Chinese leadership a potential opportunity for espionage or sabotage. The company denies all allegations.

In the “Clean Network Program” that has now been presented, Huawei is also primarily targeted as a cell phone manufacturer. The section on “Clean Apps” states: “Huawei, an arm of the surveillance state of the People’s Republic of China, trades in the innovation and reputation of leading American and foreign companies. These companies should remove their apps from Huawei’s app store to ensure they are not partnering with a human rights abuser. “

Against the communist party

Should the companies follow this call, experts believe that Huawei could suffer dramatic losses in the mobile phone sector as well. For example, millions of people around the world use the services of the world’s largest social network – whether they will opt for a Huawei mobile phone in the future if they can no longer use Facebook or Instagram seems at least questionable.

Finally, Pompeo made it clear that the American government wanted to take general action against Chinese apps offered within the United States. At the weekend he had already promised this, after the American president had earlier Donald Trump had threatened to ban the popular Tiktok app, which is also popular among American youth – meanwhile the software group Microsoft is negotiating a takeover with the Tiktok parent company Bytedance.

“Chinese applications threaten our privacy, spread viruses, and spread propaganda and disinformation. Americans’ most sensitive personal and business information needs to be protected from exploitation and theft for the benefit of the CCP on their cell phones, ”said Pompeus.

During a press conference in Washington on Wednesday evening, he became even more specific. “Since the parent companies are based in China, apps like Tiktok and Wechat and others pose a significant threat to the personal information of American citizens, not to mention the CCP’s content censorship tools.”

The Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi again sharply denied Pompeo’s allegations. “Everyone can see clearly that the intention of the United States is to protect its monopoly on technology and to deprive other countries of their real right to development.”

Even before Pompeo presented the new initiative, tensions between the world’s two largest economies had escalated. Time and again, observers are now talking of a “new cold war” that is technologically discharging.

“In practical terms, the United States is at war with China,” wrote former NSA director Keith Alexander in Barron’s financial magazine, adding, “This may come as a surprise, as no shots were fired or explanations made.”

Dangerous apps hid an adware belonging to the HiddenAds virus family. What are adware? This is an increasingly frequent type of malware on smartphones that continuously display deceptive advertisements. Hackers earn both on involuntary clicks stolen from users, and on any services with subscriptions activated following the clicks. A double scam that generates considerable gains for hackers.

What are the adware of the HiddenAds family

Adware is a rather subtle virus, although harmless in terms of user privacy. Their only goal, in fact, is show advertisements on the smartphone screen, to the point of making it unusable.

  • Skate Board – New
  • Find Hidden Differences
  • Shoot Master
  • Stacking Guys
  • Disc Go!
  • Spot Hidden Differences
  • Dancing Run – Color Ball Run
  • Find 5 Differences
  • Joy Woodworker
