BlackBerry advances Priv roll out in Dubai

BlackBerry Priv has started selling at the Dubai Mall outlet. BlackBerry was originally scheduled to roll out the device in the UAE stores from January. The device went on pre-order from December 21.

However, the BlackBerry store at Dubai says it has already started selling the device a week in advance. We started selling it from December 26. We received stocks a bit early and so decided to place them on stands, said a staff at the BlackBerry store in Dubai.

The company is hoping to make some major inroads into the smartphone market promising one of the most secure android devices currently in the market. According to BlackBerry most smartphone users, especially those using Android devices are living in the era of anti-privacy. Quoting a Cambridge University study it says nearly 90 per cent of Android devices are exposed to critical vulnerabilities due to slow patching while 60 per cent of Android devices are currently vulnerable to a WebView security risk.

What s more nearly 30 per cent of mobile apps steal and sell your contacts, messages, photos, or browsing history to parties ranging from aggressive advertisers to cybercriminals. PRIV combines the superior privacy and security you ve come to expect from BlackBerry with the flexibility of Android s ecosystem and apps. It protects your mobile experience from the device level up to the application level, and offers a powerful suite of tools through which you can take charge of your private data.

The end result is a device that you can trust will offer you better protection from threats against your apps, networks, and most importantly personal information, the smartphone maker said providing details about the security set up in its latest Android device. But will Blackberry be able to convince Android users to shift merely on the basis of better security. The device that was launched in the international market in November and in the UAE now is priced at Dh2899.

Reports already indicate that the company could drop the price during the first quarter of 2016 in the follow up to the Mobile World Congress.

According to the IDC the worldwide mobile phone market is said to reach a total of 1,960 million unit shipments in 2015, down 0.1 per cent from the 1,961.9 million units shipped in 2014.

Total mobile phone shipments will reach 2,122.4 million units worldwide, resulting in a CAGR of 1.6 per cent from 2014 to 2019. “Although shipments remained nearly flat in 2015, we still expect that the worldwide mobile phone market will steadily grow heading into 2019,” says Anthony Scarsella, research manager for IDC’s Mobile Phones team.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update Release Date for LG G4, G3, and Possibly G2 on …

LG G4 Now that Android Version 6.0, also known as Marshmallow or Android M has been released for about two months now, it really is a matter of time before it rolls out to other newer Android devices. Google always gives it to its own Nexus first, but then it rolls out to other companies, such as Samsung, HTC, as well as LG. LG has been pretty dedicated about trying to get Android 6.0 to their users as soon as possible, and this is what is known about the Android M Version 6.0 Marshmallow Release Date for LG G4, G3, and possibly G2 on carriers like Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and AT&T.

We have previously reported in an article about the soon-to-be-released LG G5 that Android M is coming for the LG G4 and LG G3 soon. There isn’t really much word in the past week about when “soon” will be. However, out of all the Android smartphone manufacturers that include Samsung, Sony, HTC, and others, LG is probably the one company that wants to get the update to its customers the soonest.

That is, if Google doesn’t have the rights to put it out first.

1 Right after the rollout, LG promised that their phones would have Android 6.0 first (ignoring the fact that the Nexus 5X and 6P exist). Then began their rollout that slowly but surely beginning to come to countries in Europe like Poland, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Romania, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Croatia, and Turkey, according to Tech Radar .

2 Like Us on Facebook 3 There is no word when it will be coming to the United States. Of course, the LG G4 will probably be the first to get it, and it is expected to arrive sometime in January or February 2016, according to Pocket-Lint .

Much of it will also depend on the carrier, such as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or US Cellular.

4 Know Your Mobile reports that the upgrade for the G3 will be arriving soon, as the open source code for the LG G3 Marshmallow update has been published online. Perhaps it will roll out in Europe before coming to the United States. It is probable that the LG G Flex 2, the LG G4c and other recent LG phones including the LG G2 will be receiving their 6.0 shift.

5 Also, once the rollout happens, it is a matter of it going through the carrier, which can cause even more delays. There is a report saying that Sprint has started bringing the Marshmallow update to the LG G4, according to GSMArena . This is an excellent sign that the other networks will follow.

Please leave a comment if it has come to your LG phone, and to check your Settings if the Over the Air (OTA) update is ready.

HTC One X9 Could Go Official on December 24th, Suggests Teaser

For HTC One M9 variants that are linked with mobile carriers, the report said that the latest Android 1 build will be rolled out by early 2016. The One X9 has been priced at 370$ (which roughly translates to around Rs 25,000). However, in comparison, the HTC One A9 came with Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS straight out of the box, much like the Nexus handsets.

HTC had yesterday leaked the teaser 2 for its One X9 smartphone. That is a step up from Android 6.0, which the One A9 already has out of the box. First of all, you will need to download the Android 6.0 Marshmallow custom ROM zip and Google Apps zip files on your computer.

Owners of this device have been expecting this update especially after HTC started rolling out the Marshmallow update to its predecessor, the HTC One M8. HTC failed to mention what version of Android is pre-installed on this device, Lollipop or Marshmallow, so we can not share that info at this moment. Google recently pushed out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with over 200 new emoji, a new do-not-disturb volume mode and a few other small changes, and that update will hit the HTC One A9 within the next 24 hours as well.

Once you get the notification that the update has arrived, we suggest that you also hook up to a Wi-Fi network and charge your battery before updating the phone. HTC has been on a roll when it comes to software updates, and this is the latest move. Let us know if you ve received the HTC One A9 Android 6.0.1 update, Has the update improved the battery life and performance of the device?
