Verizon planning to introduce WiFi calling after FCC approval

Posted: 26 Oct 2015 02:10 PM PDT

AT&T recently petitioned the FCC to approve a WiFi calling service with the carrier, a service both T-Mobile and Sprint both offer, and the FCC was quick to approve it. It seems Verizon is hoping for the same outcome, as it has petitioned the FCC to approve its own service.

Though Verizon offers a sort of WiFi calling, it's tied to a Verizon app instead of integrated into the operating system. AT&T finally offers WiFi calling (though only for iPhone users) at the system level, and hopefully Verizon will be able to do the same for Android.

While we don't know the details of Verizon's plan for the WiFi calling service, it can only be good for customers to have the option. Would you find this service useful? Leave a comment!

OnePlus X Poster Leaked

Posted: 26 Oct 2015 01:54 PM PDT

OnePlus X Press

 

OnePlus is expected to unveil a new device later this week, the OnePlus X.  The device isn't really a secret as there have been numerous leaks and here is another one ahead of the event.  What you see above appears to be an event poster for the OnePlus X.  In addition to giving us yet another look at the companies latest device we also get a price for the X.  The device is set to cost 1,699 yuan which converts to roughly $350 CAD.  That is a little higher than previous rumours had indicated but prices from location to location are rarely an exact conversion.

Once again, the OnePlus X is expected to pack a 5″ 1080p display powered by a Snapdragon 801 and 3GB of RAM.  There should be 16GB of expandable storage, a 13MP camera, 8MP rear camera and 2450 mAh battery.  The event is set for this Thursday so we'll know everything there is to know soon enough.

Anybody interested in OnePlus' latest?

Remember that time you were super jazzed about Hangouts 4.0, and when it finally came out, it wasn't that great? How about when v5.0 began its rollout, and it was basically the same thing, but with working animated GIFs? Version 5.1 is now making its way out into the world, but if you weren't happy with the previous releases, you're probably not going to be too thrilled with this one.

With Android 6.0 officially out on Nexus devices, smartphone manufacturers are working hard to bring their devices up to date with Google's latest version of Android.  While we don't have any specific dates for any updates yet, Telus has updated their software update schedule to at least give us a time frame for a couple of devices.

According to the latest update, both the HTC One M8 and Motorola Moto G (2015) should be getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow some time in December.  I would assume that the HTC One M9 and Moto X Play should also be getting Marshmallow around that time as they are both newer/higher end devices but we'll have to wait on official word.

New in Android Samples: Authenticating to remote servers using the Fingerprint API

Posted: 26 Oct 2015 12:41 PM PDT

Posted by Takeshi Hagikura, Yuichi Araki, Developer Programs Engineer

As we announced in the previous blog post, Android 6.0 Marshmallow is now publicly available to users. Along the way, we've been updating our samples collection to highlight exciting new features available to developers.

This week, we're releasing AsymmetricFingerprintDialog, a new sample demonstrating how to securely integrate with compatible fingerprint readers (like Nexus Imprint) in a client/server environment.

Let's take a closer look at how this sample works, and talk about how it complements the FingerprintDialog sample we released earlier during the public preview.

Symmetric vs Asymmetric Keys

The Android Fingerprint API protects user privacy by keeping users' fingerprint features carefully contained within secure hardware on the device. This guards against malicious actors, ensuring that users can safely use their fingerprint, even in untrusted applications.

Android also provides protection for application developers, providing assurances that a user's fingerprint has been positively identified before providing access to secure data or resources. This protects against tampered applications, providing cryptographic-level security for both offline data and online interactions.

When a user activates their fingerprint reader, they're unlocking a hardware-backed cryptographic vault. As a developer, you can choose what type of key material is stored in that vault, depending on the needs of your application:

  • Symmetric keys: Similar to a password, symmetric keys allow encrypting local data. This is a good choice securing access to databases or offline files.
  • Asymmetric keys: Provides a key pair, comprised of a public key and a private key. The public key can be safely sent across the internet and stored on a remote server. The private key can later be used to sign data, such that the signature can be verified using the public key. Signed data cannot be tampered with, and positively identifies the original author of that data. In this way, asymmetric keys can be used for network login and authenticating online transactions. Similarly, the public key can be used to encrypt data, such that the data can only be decrypted with the private key.

This sample demonstrates how to use an asymmetric key, in the context of authenticating an online purchase. If you're curious about using symmetric keys instead, take a look at the FingerprintDialog sample that was published earlier.

Here is a visual explanation of how the Android app, the user, and the backend fit together using the asymmetric key flow:

1. Setting Up: Creating an asymmetric keypair

First you need to create an asymmetric key pair as follows:


KeyPairGenerator.getInstance(KeyProperties.KEY_ALGORITHM_EC, "AndroidKeyStore");
keyPairGenerator.initialize(
new KeyGenParameterSpec.Builder(KEY_NAME,
KeyProperties.PURPOSE_SIGN)
.setDigests(KeyProperties.DIGEST_SHA256)
.setAlgorithmParameterSpec(new ECGenParameterSpec("secp256r1"))
.setUserAuthenticationRequired(true)
.build());
keyPairGenerator.generateKeyPair();

Note that .setUserAuthenticationRequired(true) requires that the user authenticate with a registered fingerprint to authorize every use of the private key.

Then you can retrieve the created private and public keys with as follows:


KeyStore keyStore = KeyStore.getInstance("AndroidKeyStore");
keyStore.load(null);
PublicKey publicKey =
keyStore.getCertificate(MainActivity.KEY_NAME).getPublicKey();

KeyStore keyStore = KeyStore.getInstance("AndroidKeyStore");
keyStore.load(null);
PrivateKey key = (PrivateKey) keyStore.getKey(KEY_NAME, null);

2. Registering: Enrolling the public key with your server

Second, you need to transmit the public key to your backend so that in the future the backend can verify that transactions were authorized by the user (i.e. signed by the private key corresponding to this public key). This sample uses the fake backend implementation for reference, so it mimics the transmission of the public key, but in real life you need to transmit the public key over the network.


boolean enroll(String userId, String password, PublicKey publicKey);

3. Let's Go: Signing transactions with a fingerprint

To allow the user to authenticate the transaction, e.g. to purchase an item, prompt the user to touch the fingerprint sensor.

Then start listening for a fingerprint as follows:


Signature.getInstance("SHA256withECDSA");
KeyStore keyStore = KeyStore.getInstance("AndroidKeyStore");
keyStore.load(null);
PrivateKey key = (PrivateKey) keyStore.getKey(KEY_NAME, null);
signature.initSign(key);
CryptoObject cryptObject = new FingerprintManager.CryptoObject(signature);

CancellationSignal cancellationSignal = new CancellationSignal();
FingerprintManager fingerprintManager =
context.getSystemService(FingerprintManager.class);
fingerprintManager.authenticate(cryptoObject, cancellationSignal, 0, this, null);

4. Finishing Up: Sending the data to your backend and verifying

After successful authentication, send the signed piece of data (in this sample, the contents of a purchase transaction) to the backend, like so:


Signature signature = cryptoObject.getSignature();
// Include a client nonce in the transaction so that the nonce is also signed
// by the private key and the backend can verify that the same nonce can't be used
// to prevent replay attacks.
Transaction transaction = new Transaction("user", 1, new SecureRandom().nextLong());
try {
signature.update(transaction.toByteArray());
byte[] sigBytes = signature.sign();
// Send the transaction and signedTransaction to the dummy backend
if (mStoreBackend.verify(transaction, sigBytes)) {
mActivity.onPurchased(sigBytes);
dismiss();
} else {
mActivity.onPurchaseFailed();
dismiss();
}
} catch (SignatureException e) {
throw new RuntimeException(e);
}

Last, verify the signed data in the backend using the public key enrolled in step 2:


@Override
public boolean verify(Transaction transaction, byte[] transactionSignature) {
try {
if (mReceivedTransactions.contains(transaction)) {
// It verifies the equality of the transaction including the client nonce
// So attackers can't do replay attacks.
return false;
}
mReceivedTransactions.add(transaction);
PublicKey publicKey = mPublicKeys.get(transaction.getUserId());
Signature verificationFunction = Signature.getInstance("SHA256withECDSA");
verificationFunction.initVerify(publicKey);
verificationFunction.update(transaction.toByteArray());
if (verificationFunction.verify(transactionSignature)) {
// Transaction is verified with the public key associated with the user
// Do some post purchase processing in the server
return true;
}
} catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException | InvalidKeyException | SignatureException e) {
// In a real world, better to send some error message to the user
}
return false;
}

At this point, you can assume that the user is correctly authenticated with their fingerprints because as noted in step 1, user authentication is required before every use of the private key. Let's do the post processing in the backend and tell the user that the transaction is successful!

Other updated samples

We also have a couple of Marshmallow-related updates to the Android For Work APIs this month for you to peruse:

  • AppRestrictionEnforcer and AppRestrictionSchema These samples were originally released when the App Restriction feature was introduced as a part of Android for Work API in Android 5.0 Lollipop. AppRestrictionEnforcer demonstrates how to set restriction to other apps as a profile owner. AppRestrictionSchema defines some restrictions that can be controlled by AppRestrictionEnforcer. This update shows how to use 2 additional restriction types introduced in Android 6.0.

We hope you enjoy the updated samples. If you have any questions regarding the samples, please visit us on our GitHub page and file issues or send us pull requests.

Facebook’s getting a ‘more useful’ notifications tab for mobile

Posted: 26 Oct 2015 12:10 PM PDT

For users of the Facebook Android app, the notifications tab might be somewhere you spend a lot of time. Knowing this, the social network is aiming to make the tab a lot more useful, providing the user with more information than just what it offers now, and hoping to provide a better experience because of it.

Facebook is calling the new notifications tab something that's more "expanded, personalized," and based on the information announced in its official blog post, that seems to be the case. After the update rolls out, which Facebook is currently working on, Android app users will see more content within the notifications tab, all of which can be customized to fit what you want to see and, more importantly, what the user wants to get notified about.

That includes family and friends' birthdays or other life events, but also includes sports scores and TV reminders, all based on information pulled from Pages that the user has liked in the past. The new notifications panel will also show information based on events that the user has signed up for.

If that's not enough, Facebook will let users add even more information to the list of notifications. That includes even more information based on the user's surrounding area, as long as they have Location History activated:

  • Things happening around your community, like local events and news that is popular in the city you live in
  • Weather updates, like current conditions and severe weather alerts
  • Movies playing in theaters near you
  • A list of nearby places to eat, with links to the places' Facebook Pages and reviews

Notifications can be customized to the user's liking so that they aren't flooded with information, and only see what they want. Facebook also says that current notifications settings won't change after the update arrives.

As far as the arrival date, Facebook simply says that it will roll out for Android (and iOS) in the U.S. gradually.

AT&T Data Perks gives you extra data for completing offers

Posted: 26 Oct 2015 11:23 AM PDT

In an age where all of the carriers are getting more competitive, some of them are resorting to pretty creative measures. AT&T launched Data Perks this morning, which is its new service that allows customers to complete partner offers, such as surveys, and rewards them by adding data to their AT&T plan. Partner offers include tasks such as completing a survey, watching an ad or shopping at a partner store.

While it's a novel concept, Data Perks has a drawback in the fact that it only offers tiny amounts of extra data for completing the offers, such as 25MB or 50MB. Within the app, users can save an unlimited amount of data before they need to transfer it into their account, which is capped at an extra 1000MB per billing cycle. Once the data enters your monthly AT&T data bucket, it's only good until the end of the billing cycle. In short, it's a lot of effort for very little reward. Unless you really play it smart to save yourself from a data overage, Data Perks doesn't offer much.

Data Perks is available on Android and iOS and is a free download within either Google Play or the App Store.

Samsung Galaxy View pre-order page breaks down the specs in the 18-inch tablet

Posted: 26 Oct 2015 10:17 AM PDT

Not too long ago, a series of images were published online that allegedly showcased what's known as the Galaxy View, a brand new tablet from Samsung that offers a huge display and, unconventionally, a handle to help carry that big screen.

Now a new pre-order page for the tablet has gone live at Adorama, and with it a clearer look at the tablet, showcasing just how Samsung expects you to use the device as well as a price tag and what would appear to be official specifications for the still-unannounced tablet. The pre-order page has the device listed at $599 for the model equipped with 32GB of built-in storage, for those wanting to see just how much Samsung would charge for the tablet.

As far as specifications go, you're looking at a tablet that boasts an 18.4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 1920×1080. There's an Exynos 7580 octa-core processor under the hood, and it boasts 2GB of RAM with the aforementioned 32GB of built-in storage. There's a 2.1-megapixel camera on the front of the tablet, a microSD card slot for expandable storage, and it's running Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. The battery is measured in at 5700mAh.

Samsung wants this to be something that you can, technically, carry around, but it appears that should really only go as far as one room to another, like the kitchen or another room without a TV to catch up on a show or sit down for the long haul and watch a film. At $600, though, is Samsung missing the mark?

InVisage’s HDR sensor to dramatically improve future smartphone videos

Posted: 26 Oct 2015 08:18 AM PDT

Almost every flagship smartphone can record decent video these days, but even the best of the best suffer from rolling shutter issues, and we've all spotted completely blown out areas if there's any direct sunlight in the frame. InVisage is planning on changing all of that with its new HDR sensor, which allows for "higher photosensitivity and electron sensitivity per pixel." InVisage claims that its unique QualtumFilm photosensitive nano-coating allows its chips to capture video frames in a similar fashion to film, allowing for improved dynamic range, and a global on/off switch that completely eliminates the rolling shutter issue that plagues nearly all (even high-end DSLR) digital cameras.

To show off just how good the new sensor is, InVisage recorded a short film using an early prototype of its QuantumFilm smartphone sensor. They also shot with an iPhone to give you an idea of what the difference actually looks like. Both videos are a bit cheesy, but we recommend taking a few minutes and at least checking out the first one.

There's no guarantee that your next smartphone will feature an InVisage sensor, but it's encouraging to see that the video quality on our smartphones could get a lot better in the future.

Huawei Australia to launch Nexus 6P through retailers, Optus and Vodafone

Hot off the back of LG's confirmation of their Nexus 5X availability, the Nexus 6P from Huawei is having its details revealed.

Nexus 6P is the more premium of the two Nexuses and thus it's priced from $899, as the Aussie Google Store has displayed. Starting at 32GB however might be a tipping point in favour of Huawei and Google, seeing as the Nexus 6P will be offered through Optus and Vodafone, as well as JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.

The more affordable of the two Nexuses, the Nexus 5X is also now available on the Google Store, but just like the Nexus 6P, who knows for how long.

No sooner than Google's announcement of the Nexus 6P on the Aussie Google Store, the Nexus 5X thankfully saw its fair treatment and a release on the same day. As expected, the Nexus 5X is pricier this time round, largely due to the value of our dollar which has shifted quite a bit since the original Nexus 5 first hit the Play Store, and Nexus 5X now starts at $659 for a 16GB model.
