  • Qualcomm Announces The Snapdragon X60 Modem For Flagship 5G Smartphones! by Subrata Maity

5G seems like the only thing carriers can talk about these days and with good reason. The technology promises to change the way we can use our devices. But so far, the reality has been far from the futuristic presentations we’ve seen time and time again.

There’s one thing we tech geeks can get enthusiastic about and that’s the fast progress we’ll see in the field as it matures. And today we’re witnessing a significant improvement in 5G hardware, coming from none other than Qualcomm.

Mozilla, the organization behind the much-loved Firefox web browser, has experimented with creating a VPN service for some time. Unlike the VPNs packaged with browsers like Opera, Mozilla always intended for it to be a paid service, to avoid profiting off user data. While the VPN service is still in a closed beta, the Android app for it is now available.

The Play Store listing is light on details, but the official site for the Firefox Private Network has everything you need to know. The service is powered by Mullvad VPN, which claims to have a no-logging policy. Instead of more traditional protocols like OpenVPN or IPsec, Firefox Private Network utilizes the newer WireGuard standard, which is designed to offer faster speeds and improved encryption.

  • OmniVision Announces Brand New 64 Megapixel OV64C, 0.8 Micron Image Camera Sensor! by ᎮᏒᎥᏁፈᏋ

As we have explained before, the smartphone camera megapixel wars have resumed in full swing. In 2019, most mainstream lower mid-range, upper mid-range and affordable flagship phones opted to use some form of a 48MP Quad Bayer sensor. In 2020, it seems 64MP will be the new standard resolution for smartphone cameras.

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.

Thanks for reading!
