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. While Snapchat users might disagree with this judgment, the glasses are pretty much useless for anything other than Snapchat. Now Facebook is looking to change that image with Ray-Ban Stories glasses developed in collaboration with EssilorLuxottica, Ray-Ban’s parent company.

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

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. It doesn't really hurt if you have dozens or even hundreds of megapixels if you can cram that many in a sensor, but Samsung might be taking things to the extreme in a few years. Not satisfied with its recently announced 200MP sensor, it apparently wants to have more than twice that much by 2025.

Galaxy A phones could all get OIS cameras next year

High-end smartphones are no longer making great leaps in terms of performance every year, giving some mid-range devices the opportunity to catch up. While some phones bearing Snapdragon 7 series chips and MediaTek Dimensity processors are able to meet the majority of the needs of users, there are some areas where these less-than-premium phones still fail to impress. Photography is one of those areas, with some cameras doing decent but not spectacular jobs. That could be changing next year for the Galaxy A line as Samsung seeks to expand its capabilities with that much-desired OIS feature.

Samsung ISOCELL HP1 brings a 200MP sensor to smartphones

Although higher pixel counts don't always translate to higher quality images, it sometimes never hurts to have more if you can afford it, especially since it looks good in marketing. For years now, Samsung has been pushing the envelope when it comes to the number of pixels a single mobile image sensor can hold, and it has just announced a new milestone with the 200MP ISOCELL HP1. Samsung also introduces the new ISOCELL GN5 promises upgraded autofocus with a more "normal" 50MP sensor.

Polaroid Now+ instant camera bridges the gap between classic and futuristic

Last year saw the release of the Polaroid Now, an instant camera reminiscent of the Polaroid cameras from the 1970s with some modern upgrades. The Polaroid Now camera was apparently a hit because today we're seeing Polaroid announce and release a follow-up to it.

Vivo X70 Pro camera details and Pro+ “mirror” leak out

Vivo is gearing up to flex its mobile photography muscles in just a few days, barely a year after it launched the Vivo X60 series. In contrast to the last two X flagships, however, it seems that the Vivo X70 will be a bit more low-key, preferring internal upgrades over spectacular features. The Vivo X70 Pro+, however, could be the exception, relying on what some might see more as an unnecessary gimmick than a feature to die for.

Vivo X70 to come with V1 custom image processor

Vivo is the latest to jump on that trend, with a new V1 image processor that's will debut in the Vivo X70 series coming soon.
