Samsung has just revealed more details about its newest top of the line processor, the Exynos 8 Octa. The chip already has the distinction of being the OEM's first integrated one-chip solution.

This morning a number of supposedly official cases for Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge devices have been revealed.

This is TipTalk, the smart watch strap that makes you Inspector Gadget

Smart strap upgrades for the analog watch you can't quite part with aren't new, but few let you pretend to be Inspector Gadget as well. TipTalk, one of the skunkworks projects out of Samsung's Creative Lab on show at CES 2016 this week, does just that, however.
