According to preliminary data, the presentation of Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be on October 15. We already know the design and some technical specifications of the devices. However, it seems that some more surprises await us since the Google Pixel 4 XL 5G version appeared in Geekbench. At the moment, analysts do not expect more than 4 GB of RAM from the new RAM, but it will not be a surprise if Google decides to release a version with 6 GB. The modification with 8 GB of RAM will be quite unusual. A large number of smartphone manufacturers have long been releasing devices with a large amount of RAM, but Google has been keeping to produce models with 4 GB for years. Geekbench suggests that one of the 4 XL versions will have 8 GB of RAM and 5G support. The heart of the new smartphone may be the Snapdragon 855 or 855+. Also, it will get Android 10 right out of the box, which is not surprising. The phone scores 761 points in the single-core test and 2326 in the multi-core. If the above results are correct, then this smartphone will be the first for a company with 8 GB of RAM and 5G.
As it became known, the Philippine police raided the office of Grapefruit Services Inc. The company is suspected of cryptocurrency fraud. Investors from China became victims of crooks. A local news publication writes that representatives from the immigration bureau, anti-corruption commission, and national police broke into the Grapefruit Services office in Pasig with a search. The raid was based on the appeal of the Chinese embassy, which says that fraudsters have already fooled thousands of people. Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said law enforcement authorities arrested 277 people. They are all Chinese citizens and work illegally in the Philippines. According to insiders, Grapefruit is the official representative of Golden Millennial Quickpay, licensed under CEZA. Recall that the Philippine authorities allow cryptocurrency companies to work there. However, law enforcement authorities claim that the company provided services outside the specified zone, therefore, violated the country’s financial laws.
In 2017, Google, together with Levi’s, released a smart jacket. And although it is no longer for sale, Google continued to release smart clothes with the new Cit-e backpack. However, it is not a fact that this Google project will be successful. The backpack was created in collaboration with Yves Saint Laurent but it does not differ in catchy design, it does not have extra details. However, given the appearance and brand with which Google collaborates, there are no doubts about quality. The “brain” of the backpack is the Jacquard platform, which provides synchronization with a smartphone and other “smart” functions. However, it is still unknown why all these functions are necessary for users. Such a backpack will cost not cheaply, $995. But Google promises to continue to produce “smart” clothes at more affordable prices. Let’s see what this backpack will be like, recall, the smart jacket was not very popular with consumers and the project had to be closed.
The U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions on three companies from North Korea: the Lazarus Group, Bluenoroff, and Andariel. According to representatives of the United States, these groups are responsible for the theft of cryptographic data for $571 million from five exchanges in Asia in 2017 and 2018. This announcement was made a few days after the DPRK stated that they intend to hold a second cryptocurrency conference, inviting the community to share information and enter into transactions in Pyongyang starting in February 2020. All three groups are controlled by North Korea and connected with the Reconnaissance General Bureau (RGB), according to the announcement. The Treasury said stolen funds, including coins from cryptocurrency exchanges, were used to develop nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. Any financial institution in any country that deals with blocked entities may lose its correspondent banking relationship with the United States. Recall that a recent UN report claimed that the DPRK stole cryptocurrency and fiat currency for $2 billion in 35 separate attacks in 17 countries.
SpaceX has published a video of the test system for the rescue of the new Crew Dragon spacecraft. The idea of the system is that if something goes wrong with the rocket carrying the Crew Dragon, the device can use its own engines to avoid danger by returning to Earth with parachutes. “our team has completed over 700 tests of the spacecraft’s SuperDraco engines” – the company said. The device has eight SuperDraco engines, which allow it to reach speeds of 700 kilometers per hour. Parachutes provide the safest landing of the ship with the crew to Earth after the system works. Ahead of our in-flight abort test for @Commercial_Crew—which will demonstrate Crew Dragon's ability to safely carry astronauts away from the rocket in the unlikely event of an emergency—our team has completed over 700 tests of the spacecraft's SuperDraco engines pic.twitter.com/nswMPCK3F9 — SpaceX (@SpaceX) September 12, 2019 Last week, SpaceX carried the necessary tests of the first stage of its Falcon 9 launch vehicle, which will be responsible for launching two NASA astronauts to orbit as part of the first-ever Crew Dragon test flight. Crew Dragon is one of two manned spacecraft created as part of the NASA program to stimulate the development of spacecraft by private companies, Commercial Crew Program. It must deliver the cargo to the ISS and return to earth on March 8.
