Here’s the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, coming on August 12 with an Auto-Eject S Pen?

galaxy-note-5-case-s-penToday a Galaxy Note 5 case from Ringke has caught our eye which raises a very important question about the S Pen. Note that  Samsung is going to announce the Galaxy Note 5 on August 12 instead of waiting till IFA 2015 in September.

The S Pen has always been a staple on the Galaxy Note lineup and Samsung is sticking with it this time around as well however it appears to have changed the way it’s ejected. Previously you would just push it out using your nail but in all renders of the device we have seen so far the S Pen appears to sit flushed with the frame thus making it impossible to eject it using that method.

Is Samsung going with a push-to-release mechanism for the Galaxy Note 5 or will the S Pen be able to auto-eject? Lets not forget that Samsung does have a patent on auto-eject technology for the S Pen which would not only make things easier but would look certainly look cool.

If you own a Samsung Phone, you’re at Risk!

Galaxy S6 Edge

If you are a Samsung Galaxy owner here is some news for you that is definitely worth taking a look at.

A Security Flaw Could Potentially Put A Massive Number Of Samsung Galaxy Phones At Risk.

The worrying announcement comes in the form of a security flaw that lets attackers install malware on to your device or, alternatively, eavesdrop on your phone calls.

Chicago-based security firm NowSecure has published a report that claims the bug lives in the SwiftKey keyboard software, which is installed on more than 600 million Samsung devices. It states the bug can allow a remote attacker, which is capable of controlling a user’s network traffic, to execute an arbitrary code on the user’s phone.

The most worrying thing though is that there is no option to uninstall the SwiftKey keyboard, if it’s there, it’s there for good.

An attacker can secretly install malware on a user’s device, access the camera, microphone and GPS, and listen in on calls and messages, change the way other apps behave and even steal photos and text messages.

NowSecure also claims it notified Samsung on this problem towards the end of last year. Samsung did provide a patch to amend the problem to network operators earlier in 2015 but it’s not known if this patch was made available to many users by the networks.

Potentially effected devices include; Samsung Galaxy S6, S5, S4 and the S4 mini.
