Even while travel and work restrictions slowly start to be lifted, the "new normal" not just for the workplace but for communication in general has become more virtual than ever before.

Vecnos IQUI camera wants to make sharing 360-degree photos a snap

There has been less fuss lately about 360-degree cameras, perhaps due to restrictions placed not just on travel but even mass gatherings in some areas around the world. It is, however, in that world that Vecnos, spun from camera maker and imaging company Ricoh, is launching a new 360-degree camera. The Vecnos IQUI definitely won't be competing head-to-head with the likes of Insta360 in terms of features but its simplicity could actually be the key to its success.

Sony Alpha 7C claims world’s smallest full-frame camera system title

Despite their pedigree, Sony's smartphones haven't exactly been known for their photography prowess.

With the clock ticking down to Apple's official virtual event on Tuesday, last-minute leaks of this year's iPhone generation continue to come in.

The Android 11 statue is here, there, and everywhere

Google revealed a statue for the release of Android 11 this week, complete with an augmented reality experience for your phone.

GoPro HERO 9 Black leaked packaging hints a significant upgrade

The world is slowly settling down a more normal, some say "new normal", cadence and some are resuming their old outdoor activities while others choose to remain inside and embrace new ones. In many cases, these activities involve a bit of digital documentation, be it taking still photos and selfies or recording what could be once in a lifetime moments. GoPro has always specialized in the latter, having popularized the small action camera black box. Now it, too, is embracing a slightly new direction, if this box for the HERO 9 Black is any indication.

ZTE Axon 20 5G revealed with under-display tech: camera, fingerprint reader, speakers

Today we're taking a peek at the newly-revealed ZTE Axon 20 5G, otherwise known as the "world's first under-display camera smartphone." This device might not look particularly extraordinary at first - it's not really meant to be particularly striking in outward appearance. Instead, it's meant to do what any other smartphone does, without the drawback of having a space up front for a camera - be it a wide bezel, a notch, or a hole in the phone's display.
