Archos 50b, 50c Oxygen Are Budget Quad, Octa-core Smartphones - Android Community OWAforAndroid_021-150x150

The spec sheet reveals that both variants the 50b quad-core and the 50c octa-core will be running MediaTek chipsets, pretty famous in the budget smartphone market. The 50c will be sporting the MT6592, developed MediaTek in the latter part of 2013 as the first true octa-core mobile processor . This chipset will be turning 8 Cortex A7 cores running at 1.7Ghz, which is pretty awesome considering the USD$300 price range. The 50b priced at around USD$220 will be using MediaTeks MT6582 chipset, which is a quad-core processor running at 1.3Ghz per core. Strangely, and maybe by necessity being a budget phone, both variants will have only 1GB of RAM. The performance boost of added RAM say maybe 2GB of it in an octa-core phone is substantial, and we were wondering if Archos could have squeezed the cost enough to at least put 2GB of RAM in the octa-core 50c Oxygen.

When a user with a Svpeng-infected phone tapped the Google Play app, Svpeng launched an overlay designed to look like an authentic part of the app, which asked users to « re-enter » credit-card numbers or other financial information. But that’s wasn’t all. Early in 2014, Svpeng decided that being a banking Trojan just wasn’t adequate to express its full identity. Svpeng now incorporates ransomware features specific to « police Trojans. » In those variants, Svpeng would replace the regular Android screen with a message, allegedly from local law enforcement, claiming that the phone’s owner had been caught viewing child pornography and would need to pay a fine of $500 in order to unlock the phone. Soon after that, reports Kaspersky, Svpeng’s creators decided to spin off its ransomware component into an entirely separate piece of malware.
