Mozilla, the organization behind the much-loved Firefox web browser, has experimented with creating a VPN service for some time.

Both Samsung and Sony have released their 64MP sensors in the form of the Samsung ISOCELL GW1 and the Sony IMX686 respectively. Samsung has even gone a step higher by releasing two 108MP sensors in the form of the ISOCELL HMX and the ISOCELL HM1, the latter of which is used in the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.
