Samsung Galaxy S7 camera details: bettering the best

Samsung Galaxy S7 camera details: bettering the best

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are likely headed toward a full reveal on the 21st of February, complete with a new set of cameras. Today we're having a peek at some of Samsung's newest in camera technology - mobile technology, that is to say - revealed in part all the way back in November. This camera tech will make the next Galaxy smartphone's camera powerful in all conditions. Not just outdoors. Not just in high lighting conditions. All places.

LG G5 day confirmed for Samsung Galaxy S7 night

LG G5 day confirmed for Samsung Galaxy S7 night

While Samsung may have the night all wrapped up with the Galaxy S7, LG has chosen to reveal the LG G5 in the afternoon. This set of events, it turns out, will be taking place on the 21st of February - later this month - in Barcelona, Spain. That's during Mobile World Congress 2016, where both events will be taking place outside of the main event center. It's the invite that has us baffled the most, it being animated with a walking robot and a bouncing fish... thing.

Samsung Galaxy S7 release date, price, specs, features to boost software stronghold

Samsung Galaxy S7 release date, price, specs, features to boost software stronghold

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge models suggest that the company will stick with model sizes that developers need not change for. After years of changing the innards and outsides of the Samsung Galaxy hero smartphone lineup, Samsung appears to have stuck with what works - and, in the process, they're about to create an environment that's strong enough for developers to invest time and effort into the platform. As it is with Apple's iPhones and their rarely-changing display densities, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will follow the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Plus' leads.

Samsung Galaxy S7 release tipped with Gear 360 spherical cam

Samsung Galaxy S7 release tipped with Gear 360 spherical cam

Samsung is reported to be revealing not only their Samsung Galaxy S7 hero phone, but a spherical, VR-friendly camera called Gear 360. This device, the Samsung Gear 360, has been teased as quite akin to what we've reported under a different name late last year: DUO PIXEL. That device, we'd gathered, would work somewhat like the Ricoh Theta camera, capturing two photos or two videos at once, combining them to create one spherical piece of media.

HTC One M10 release details pack a familiar set of specs (and a watch)

HTC One M10 release details pack a familiar set of specs (and a watch)

HTC is tipped to be bringing their next-generation smartphone to an event outside of Mobile World Congress 2016, instead opting for a stand-alone event not unlike that of the HTC One M8. It's almost as if HTC decides where to reveal their flagship device each year depending on the weather. Here once again they'll probably show off something in Barcelona (MWC), but will bring another bit of heat just a week or two later. Last year they were at MWC with their M9, but the year before that they were in NYC.

LG G5 and G5 Pro cases show off smartphone designs

LG G5 and G5 Pro cases show off smartphone designs

The next LG smartphone (LG G5) has leaked with photos of its front and back and sides through case manufacturers of all sorts. The folks at LG aren't leaving anything up to chance with the LG G5, almost certainly bringing heat to MWC 2016 this February. Today we get to look at what's essentially the entire smartphone, from all sides - save the back, of course, since most of it is covered by case. But all the important bits are here!

Samsung Galaxy S7 release date equals no need for USB-C speed

Samsung Galaxy S7 release date equals no need for USB-C speed

Today we're talking all about the Samsung Galaxy S7 and its USB connector, especially when it comes to connecting quick. When your device uses a standard micro-USB port (USB 3.0), you're able to connect to a massive amount of products. When your device switches over to USB-C, you've suddenly cut yourself off from many years of accessories, including the high-profile virtual reality headset you just released. Will Samsung release a Galaxy S7 just a few months into 2016 with a port that's incompatible with the GearVR? I don't think so.

Samsung Galaxy S7 release date range and details: everything we know so far

Samsung Galaxy S7 release date range and details: everything we know so far

Over the past week and a half, quite a few Samsung Galaxy S7 details have been begun to fall into place. One of these details suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S7 won't be released alongside just one "Edge", but two. Another bit of anonymously-shared information suggests that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will be more lonesome this year - once again finding itself being released on its own while the Galaxy S7 has two release partners instead of just one.

LG G5 release date may be early: details suggest Spring

LG G5 release date may be early: details suggest Spring

Mobile World Congress may well be the place where LG reveals its next hero smartphone: the LG G5. This device, which we're assuming will follow the same naming conventions of the past several years, will play heavily on its new industry-leading camera technology, replaceable AND non-replaceable backsides, and premium feel. Unlike most major smartphone manufacturers, LG hasn't shown any fear of dropping relatively outlandish technologies and features of all sorts on devices it intends distribute widely - as such, we're excited to see what oddities they'll have in store.

MWC 2015 round-up; Samsung, HTC lead the way

MWC 2015 round-up; Samsung, HTC lead the way

Though we weren’t expecting a whole lot, Mobile World Congress was actually rather delightful this year. We got exactly what we came for, and even some additional surprises from top OEMs and others. There were some obvious highlights, like the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but some other highlights like Jolla’s new tablet. HTC brought out their new smartphone for us to check out, but also slapped a fitness band on our wrist and VR headset on our face. But that wasn’t all! Here are some of our highlights from MWC 2015.

Turns out, the Jolla Tablet is really onto something

Turns out, the Jolla Tablet is really onto something

Sometimes a few inches is all it takes to make a difference. Back when Jolla first started, a team of former Nokians taking MeeGo and spinning it into their own Sailfish OS, it became a smartphone curio. The simple UI and gesture-based navigation had promise, but compared to an iPhone, Android, or even Windows Phone device, it felt underwhelmingly simple. Now, the Finns are back with not only Sailfish 2.0, but a tablet for it to run on, and it turns out that makes for a great pairing.

Samsung’s not giving up on VR: Gear VR GS6 hands-on

Samsung’s not giving up on VR: Gear VR GS6 hands-on

I honestly didn't think I'd have to mess up my charming, hobo-like mess of hair so often at MWC 2015, but Samsung wasn't going to let me get away without trying the new Gear VR for the Galaxy S6. An updated version of last year's Gear VR for the Galaxy Note, the new model keeps the same basic principle - your smartphone screen, when docked up-front, becomes a stereoscopic display - but updates it to suit the new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge Samsung announced on Sunday. Thing is, having already been wowed by the HTC Vive, can Samsung's altogether more straightforward headset compete?
