When it comes to yet unreleased products, you can be sure that there will be plenty of rumors that will surround such unannounced devices. The same can be said of Sony with their Sony Xperia Z3 and Sony Xperia Z3 Compact devices, where the rumor mill has indeed been working overtime to point to an imminent release. The latest word on the street points to an IFA 2014 announcement later this coming September, although the folks over at Sony themselves have yet to confirm the company’s presence at IFA for this year’s edition.
Earlier this year, China-based smartphone company Xiaomi announced the Redmi Note. Just like the rest of Xiaomi’s handsets, the Redmi Note was an affordable and decently specced smartphone for its price. However according to recent reports, the handset might be doing more than what it has been advertised.
According to a post by Kenny Li of Hong Kong forum, IMA Mobile, it seems that he discovered that the Redmi Note was sending user data to Xiaomi’s servers in Beijing, China (pictured in the screenshot to the right). Apparently turning off the MiCloud service did not help, although it was pointed out that this only happened over WiFi. Read full post →Xiaomi Redmi Note Reportedly Sending User Data Back To China
