A notorious Italy based surveillance company, Hacking Team, that helps governments and their agencies spy on citizens got first hand knowledge of how we all feel when our privacy is breached this week.

LG G4 Beat

Hacking Team got hacked this week and had 500GB of internal files, software, and communications made public. The hack revealed the company’s clients which included countries like Australia, Germany, Honduras, Hungary, Italy, Kazakhstan, Sudan, Switzerland, Thailand, UAE, United States, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Chile, Colombia, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Mongolia, Morocco, Oman, Panama, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Czech Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, Ethiopia, Uzbekistan, and Vietnam.

Bayelsa State of Nigeria was also listed as a client.

While the news of Hacking Team being hacked was good news initially, by midweek it went sour as Hacking Team announced that its tools may have fallen in the hands of terrorists and extortionists.

LG launched the G4 Beat a new variant of its flagship G4 this week. The G4 Beat is more or less like the stripped down version of the LG G4, though it offers a 5.2-inch full HD display with 1.5GB RAM with Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop).

The LG G4 Beat will hit Latin America, France, Germany and Brazil this July.

Also this week news emerged that Samsung will launch the Galaxy A8 in China on July 17. The ultra slim smartphone is expected to offer a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display and octa-core processor.
