The in-display fingerprint senors are clearly going to be one of the trends of 2018. Major players on the mobile scene have yet to adopt it, but at this point, we’re pretty sure it’s a matter of time more than anything else. Things are lot more dynamic with Chinese OEMs who typically have shorter development cycles and less regulation and certification involved, so it’s hardly any surprise that Xiaomi is already jumping on the bandwagon. The company’s eagerly-anticipated Mi 7 flagship could have actually been delayed in order to adopt the new technology. Evidence of this was recently…
If you’ve been keeping up with Xiaomi and in-display fingerprint tech lately, then you probably heard a lot of rumors regarding the Mi Mix 2s. Since that particular flagship was announced yesterday that obviously didn’t come to pass. However, this development doesn’t mean the Chinese manufacturer entirely gave up on the technology. The primary suspect to pioneer the new reader within Xiaomi’s ranks now seems to be the the Mi 7. As per industry chatter, the flagship was delayed, potentially to accommodate the new tech. Some fine investigative work from the guys over at XDA seems to further…

A vulnerability in the QR code reader built into the iOS camera app could allow users to be directed to a malicious website without their knowledge.
As of iOS 11, you can simply point your iPhone at a QR code using the standard camera app, and it will read and act on the code. In the case of an embedded website URL, iOS shows you the link address and asks you to tap to confirm you want to visit it. But you may not be visiting the link displayed …
Safari for iOS has a nifty built-in “Reader” feature that’s designed to allow Safari users to read online articles with a distraction-free design that tucks away ads and other visual clutter on supported sites.
You can tap the Reader icon whenever you’re reading through an article to activate this mode, but there’s also a way to turn it on for all articles on a specific website or all supported articles on the web.
Open up Safari.
Navigate to a favorite website like MacRumors.com.
Click on an article.
In the navigation bar at the top, where it says “Reader View Available,” tap and hold on the icon that looks like three lines.
From here, you’ll see a pop that says “Automatic Reader View,” with options to either enable Automatic Reader View on the website you’re currently visiting or on all websites.
With this feature enabled, all articles that you click on for a specific website (or all websites if you chose that option) will be displayed in Reader View by default.
You can also use Reader View on the Mac too, and your Automatic Reader preferences for Mac can be accessed by going to Preferences in the Safari Mac app and choosing “Reader” under general. You can also turn Reader on for all articles on a particular webpage by right clicking or clicking and holding on the Reader icon while visiting a website. Discuss this article in our forums
When Samsung published this patent on fingerprint readers under a display, it seemed like the Galaxy S9 may get one. It didn’t, so rumors moved on to the Galaxy Note9. Even the reliable Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI predicted that the 2018 Note will finally pull it off. Then new rumors suggested otherwise. Kuo has changed his stance and now agrees with the rumors. Samsung allegedly canceled this feature because neither the ultrasonic reader (by Qualcomm) nor the optical reader (by Samsung LSI, Synaptics and others) failed to meet the company’s technical requirements. Even so, KGI is confident…
Motorola hasn’t had much of a presence at MWC this year, but that isn’t stopping us from getting to see some of the company’s upcoming hardware.
A render of the Moto E5 Plus has leaked out. Shared by Evan Blass, the image shows the front and back of the unannounced Motorola phone, complete with what looks to be a rear fingerprint reader with a Moto logo on top of it. We can also see a dual rear camera setup on the device and a 3.5mm headphone jack up top.
There’s not much in the way of concrete spec details available for this Moto E5 Plus quite yet, but considering that it’s a Moto E series device, don’t expect anything too high-end. The fingerprint reader with a Moto logo on top does look neat, though, and the overall design of this Moto E5 Plus isn’t too shabby either.
If it comes to market with an affordable price like previous Moto E series phones, the Moto E5 Plus could be a really interesting option for smartphone shoppers on a budget.
