With the February security, 2 vulnerabilities of the critical level and 20 vulnerabilities of high or common level (CVE) have fixed. Among the critical vulnerabilities corrected with this update there is also the one known with the code name CVE-2020-0022 (allows the silent execution of the code on the device that leads to data theft and the spread of a malware).
Apart from these fixes, there also something new, Knuckle gesture. This new knuckles gesture support will be able to perform different activities with a double touch, scroll or draw a shape on the display to start recording the screen, capture a screenshot or divide the screen into two parts.
How to capture a knuckle screenshot?
1. Open “Settings” and select “Smart Assistance”.
2. Touch “Motion control > Smart screenshot,” and turn on the “Smart screenshot,” switch.
3. Full screenshot: Knock the screen firmly with your knuckle twice to capture the current screen in full. (By default, screenshots are stored in the “Gallery”, within the “Screenshots” folder.)
4. Partial screenshot: Knock the screen firmly with your knuckle. Drag your knuckle around the area you want to capture and then return to the starting point. Your selection is displayed on the screen; the area inside the blue line will be captured. You can also select the screenshot box at the top of the screen for different screenshot shapes.
