Pixel 6 Pro Camera app reveals upcoming features

Google's Pixel phones have never had the best camera hardware in the market, but Google proved its photography prowess by compensating for it with advanced algorithms and AI.

Facebook Ray-Ban Stories might actually surprise you

The Snapchat Spectacles came in 2016 with a lot of hype but turned out to be a bloated bubble that ultimately burst.

Samsung wants to have a 576MP smartphone camera in four years

After CPU clock cycles, the mobile numbers game has seemingly shifted to pixel counts. While it has been repeatedly proven that higher doesn't always mean better, that hasn't stopped manufacturers from flaunting large figures, especially in marketing materials.
