Qualcomm, the leading smartphone chipmaker, has outdone itself once again. At its Snapdragon Summit in Maui on December 4, the company unveiled the world’s first 8K HDR footage shot on a smartphone. The mind-blowing video was shot on a Snapdragon 845 mobile platform with a Sony Xperia XZ3 phone. This new footage is a testament to Qualcomm’s leadership in the field of mobile innovation and its continuous efforts to push the envelope.
The world’s first smartphone capable of shooting 8K HDR footage
A few weeks ago, Qualcomm released a video captured by the world’s first smartphone capable of shooting 8K HDR footage. The 1.5-minute video above was shot up and down the west coast and showcases the incredible color detail and range that 8K HDR video is capable of capturing. The new flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor works in tandem with a 33-megapixel Sony IMX586 image sensor that captures 8K HDR video with over a billion shades of color – making your favorite movies and shows look even more realistic than before. In fact, the video defaults to 4K when playing, but YouTube has opened up an 8K resolution option so that viewers can enjoy the video in its full resolution. If you thought your current smartphone camera was good, just wait until you see what Qualcomm has in store!

Are you a senior citizen who has just bought or been given a new PC? Or are you helping a loved one set up their new PC? Either way, we've got you covered. In this article, we'll take you through the five steps necessary to setting up a new PC for seniors.
1. Make sure it’s protected

Problem: You're sick of notifications but don't want to miss what matters
Solution: Turn on alerts and sounds for only important emails
Are you one of those people who has notifications turned on for every email you receive, resulting in a never-ending buzzing and beeping soundscape that distracts you from your work? Or maybe you've turned them all off altogether, missing important updates in the process. If this sounds familiar, you're not alone. But there is a solution! You can turn on alerts and sounds for only important emails. Most email providers have settings that allow you to do this.

Google’s recent announcement that it would be phasing out the Wear OS name in favor of “Android Wear” left many people scratching their heads. Why would Google do such a thing when wearable technology is only becoming more popular? With Apple, Samsung, and other major players in the smartwatch market, could Google be conceding defeat?
There’s no question that Google has its work cut out for it convincing users that Wear OS isn’t dead. But with rumors of an upcoming Google Pixel Watch, there’s still hope for the platform. In the meantime, we’ll be keeping an eye on Android Wear to see how it evolves.
Google showed WearOS 3 to the world at Google I/O 2021, is hugely depressing
Google I/O is the company’s annual developer conference, and this year it’s happening from May 12 to May 14. As per usual, the company is expected to unveil new hardware, software, and services. Early chatter suggests that Google will use the event to announce a major update to WearOS, its operating system for smartwatches. But it’s hard not to feel a little underwhelmed by the teasers that Google has released so far. It’s been nearly two years since the company announced a major update to WearOS at I/O 2017, and in that time the platform has only seen a handful of incremental updates. WearOS is no longer the dominant player in the smartwatch market—Apple Watch has long since overtaken it—and it’s starting to feel like Google has given up on its once-promising wearable operating system.
