Why Images in some Camera Apps are Upside Down on the Nexus 5X

Posted by wicked November - 7 - 2015 - Saturday Comments Off

Nexus 5X Teardown iFixit

New users of the Google Nexus 5X may have noticed a peculiar problem arise when they snap a picture using some third-party camera apps – the image ends up being upside-down!

This issue isn’t exclusive to the Nexus 5X, though, as it has previously occurred on the front-facing camera of the Nexus 6. What causes this problem? Is it a manufacturer issue, or a software issue? Turns out it’s a bit of both.

According to Eino-Ville Talvala, the tech lead for Android’s camera framework, the issue arises because some manufacturers mount their camera sensor for their devices in an uncommon orientation. In order to comply with the Android compatibility requirements, manufacturers must align the long-edge of their camera sensor with the long-edge of the device (meaning by default the back camera sensor should be oriented such that the images are landscape). However, there is no requirement for which particular landscape direction the sensor must face. Typically, most manufacturers use a forward-landscape oriented sensor, but LG/Google chose to orient theirs reverse-landscape. Space comes at a premium on most mobile phones, so manufacturers often have to make-due with the constraints they’re given. The Nexus 5X is no exception – a quick look at a teardown reveals that little room is left in the device for the mainboard thanks to the whopping size of the battery.

Because this reverse-landscape orientation is rarely seen, many third-party application developers do not correct for this orientation when processing an image. Using the old Camera API, developers can fix this camera orientation issue by calling on the setDisplayOrientation() method to check the sensor for the correct UI orientation and properly rotate the image. With the introduction of the Camera2 API, however, this is no longer necessary as the API ensures the preview is correctly oriented. Still, if you notice one of your favorite apps incorrectly orienting your pictures, kindly shoot them an e-mail asking them to update their code to correct for this oddity.

First images of OPPO Find 9 surface

Posted by wicked April - 5 - 2015 - Sunday Comments Off


The first alleged images of the forthcoming OPPO Find 9 have surfaced revealing some new features for OPPO’s successor to their OPPO Find 7 smartphone. One of the first things that has been spotted in the leaked images is the presence of a dual camera setup on the rear of the device. HTC started the trend of dual cameras and OPPO appears to be joining the movement.

You may also notice a large button located centrally on the back cover of the OPPO Find 9. The button could be a power button that emulates the placement LG uses for the LG G2 and LG G3. The button could also be a fingerprint sensor, another popular feature showing up increasingly often on flagship devices.

On the front of the device we can see very thin bezels. The display will supposedly be a 5.5-inch 2k screen and if the thin bezels are accurately shown, the Find 9 should look spectacular.

Previous leaks indicate the Find 9 will come equipped with a Snapdragon 810 processor and 4GB of RAM.

More images of Xiaomi Mi5 chassis appear

Posted by wicked January - 11 - 2015 - Sunday Comments Off


A couple days ago an image of the forthcoming Xiaomi Mi5′s chassis leaked that seemed to indicate the new smartphone will be very thin when released later this week. That image was a printout describing the chassis with a drawing or image. Today some new images have surfaced of an actual aluminum chassis that are reportedly the chassis for the Mi5.

When the Mi5 launches, which is scheduled to happen later this week on January 15th, it is expected to come with a screen in the 5.5-inch to 6-inch range, although it is not yet known whether it will be a 1080p resolution or bumped up to QuadHD. Likewise, the processor and amount of RAM are not yet known, though many are expecting 3 – 4 GB of RAM and at least a Snapdragon 805 chip.

Look for more leaks to surface over the next few days leading up to the expected January 15th release in China.

Snapchat images may have been breached through third-party service

Posted by wicked October - 10 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off


According to reports, some 4chan users are claiming that a a third-party app used to access the Snapchat service has been breached giving access to over 200,000 images matched with usernames. The app in question is named SnapSaved and is used to get around Snapchat’s system that alerts users when someone grabs a screenshot of an image that has been posted. Apparently SnapSaved was using a cloud architecture to save the images being grabbed from Snapchat, along with everything else that was being passed to a user, like usernames. According to posters on 4chan, the image database will be posted online by this Sunday, October 12th.

Original reports claimed the service that was hacked was Snapsave, which does the same thing as SnapSaved – grab Snapchat images without the sender being notified. However, a representative for Snapsave, Georgie Casey, says Snapsave “had nothing to do with it and we’ve never logged username/passwords.” Casey also indicated Snapsave does not use a cloud system to save images.

Snapchat itself has also issued a statement regarding the claimed breach:

“We can confirm that Snapchat’s servers were never breached and were not the source of these leaks. Snapchatters were victimized by their use of third-party apps to send and receive Snaps, a practice that we expressly prohibit in our Terms of Use precisely because they compromise our users’ security. We vigilantly monitor the App Store and Google Play for illegal third-party apps and have succeeded in getting many of these removed.”

The SnapSaved web site is currently down and reports indicate that it has been for a while. The web site was the portal to the service and there are some suspicions that it was setup for the sole purpose of collecting the images for eventual “leaking” by hackers. A report also indicates that the image database file was initially made available through which was installing malicious software on the computers of users who were trying to access the file.

Lenovo Vibe X2 leaked images reveal metal chassis

Posted by wicked August - 29 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off


When a leaked Lenovo roadmap was discovered a little over a week ago, one of the devices listed was the Lenovo Vibe X2, a sequel to the Lenovo Vibe X. The roadmap document seemed to hint at the device being available in a wide variety of colors. Some newly discovered photos of the device add a little more information to what Lenovo is getting ready to bring to market. The images show what appears to be a metal chassis for the device. A view of the side also shows what appears to be layers of metal used for construction of the smartphone, though it is difficult to tell if that is just a faux look.

Sources expect Lenovo to pack the Vibe X2 with a MediaTek octa-core processor, though it is possible a variant running a dual-core Intel processor may also be produced. The screen should be a 5-inch display running at full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. The Vibe X2 is also expected to come with 16 GB of internal storage and will run Android 4.4.2.

Lenovo’s roadmap put the release of the Vibe X2 before October, so we may not have to wait long to get more details. Lenovo may even unveil it during IFA 2014 next week.

More images of Samsung Galaxy Alpha surface from Russian source

Posted by wicked August - 12 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off


Yesterday we saw where Samsung had quietly slipped the Samsung Galaxy Alpha in as a sponsor for a yachting regatta in Moscow. Today, more images of the device have surfaced thanks to a Russian source. One of the interesting shots shows the results of an AnTuTu benchmark run on the device that puts it above the HTC One (M8) and the Samsung Galaxy S5. While an Exynos 5 octa-core processor that supposedly powers the device helps, much of the performance gain could be due to the lower resolution screen of the Galaxy Alpha. This frees up the processor for other chores outside of producing graphics and makes a strong case for full HD screens being overkill on devices like smartphones that have small displays.

Outside of the screenshot of a benchmark test, the images are consistent with previously leaked photos of the Galaxy Alpha showing apparent inspiration from Apple.

According to sources in the Netherlands, the device is expected to be available for purchase there starting in September for at least €500 ($668 USD). Other reports from the U.K. have pegged the price at €700 ($935 USD). Samsung is anticipated to make an official announcement about the Galaxy Alpha tomorrow. However, pricing and availability information may not be released until later, possibly at IFA 2014 in Berlin.

Could we see the Moto X+1 at Google I/O today?

Posted by wicked June - 25 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

x+1 press image

The Moto X+1 has literally been everywhere since the rumors began just a few months ago. It will certainly be Motorola’s next flagship, and is definitely coming soon.

More rumors today, naturally.

We have a press images for the device, seen above. There are also rumors of a front-facing speaker on the bottom of the device, something that’s worked out quite well for HTC’s One M8.

It’s also possible that we might get a first glimpse of it at Google I/O today (or some point this week), but it seems unlikely. (But who knows? Anything can happen.)
