Android will soon support 'Smart Forwarding' to allow call forwarding between SIMs

With Smart Forwarding, the future version of Android will redirect all your calls from an unreachable number to the working one on your device. This feature will really come handy when one of your SIM cards goes out of service because of bad reception or lack of coverage. XDA notes that the feature will only work if you have two SIM cards in your device and only one of them is receiving signal to allow for calls.

Latest Android flaw can access your camera to click images and more: Here is what it is

“Strandhogg” Android Vulnerability
The latest Android flaw, dubbed “Strandhogg” has been discovered by security researchers at Promon. The flaw can access smartphones with any Android version (even the latest Android 10).

The unathorised access can allow hackers to click images from the device’s camera, access the microphone to listen to the users, send and read SMSs, get login credentials of the user, make phone calls and even record them. Additionally, it can access a user's location, contact list, call logs, and even private files.

The flaw can easily impact the 500 most popular apps, meaning the apps are at “high risk.” So far, around 36 malicious apps with the vulnerability have been found.
