Google Photos’ latest feature is bigger than you might think

Google Photos is getting a new feature this month, and though it might seem relatively simple on the surface, it could come in very handy for a lot of different users. This new feature, which flips the switch on optical character recognition, allows users to search their photos by the text that appears in them. So, if you're looking for a photograph of a sign or a business card, you simply need to search for the text that was captured in the image and Google Photos should return what you're looking for in search results.

OPPO Reno 2 to double-down with 20x zoom, more shark fin

The first OPPO Reno took us by surprise earlier this year with a set of cameras and first-ever features in a smartphone. That was April - in May they announced an OPPO Reno Z, and here in August they've already got an OPPO Reno 2. The first version had three iterations: OPPO Reno, Reno 5G, and Reno 10X Zoom. This newest version will have a look very similar to that of the original, only this time it'll have twice the zoom.

Huawei P30 first phone with front-facing camera Night Mode

There's a new feature in town - for the front-facing cameras of the world, anyway. This is the so-called Super Night Mode, so-called for its abilities that are... pretty much the same as non-Super Night Mode. But what better way to look like you're the best than to put "Super" in front of your name?

Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX flaunts 108 megapixels in 1/1.33″ sensor

Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX flaunts 108 megapixels in 1/1.33″ sensor

It seems that Samsung will be making mobile photography a megapixel count contest yet again. A few months ago, it boasted of the mobile industry's first 64 megapixel camera sensor which, ironically, didn't land on any of its phones to date. That sensor did end up on Xiaomi's flagship device so it's not exactly a surprise that the two are announcing a partnership that has given birth to the mobile market's first ever 108 megapixel smartphone camera sensor.

Xiaomi’s 100MP camera phone is more than madness

Xiaomi’s 100MP camera phone is more than madness

This week we're hearing from Xiaomi - from the company itself - that they're developing a 100MP camera. That means 108,000,000 pixels in total - 12032 x 9024 pixel resolution. If you think this is "absolutely crazy", per one of their fans Manu Kumar Jain, you might also think you're in a time-loop when you look at the camera phone released half a decade ago by Nokia.

The best selfie phone yet just launched for $500

The ASUS ZenFone 6 is the world's best smartphone when judged SPECIFICALLY on selfie photos and videos. So why have I never heard of this phone, you might be saying to yourself right now. If you've only ever owned MacBooks or HP desktop computers your whole life, you might've never heard of the brand ASUS. If you're not a relatively adamant fan of Android (the mobile OS) in general, you'd be forgiven for not realizing that ASUS was and is still an Android smartphone manufacturer here in 2019.
