Almost everyone's saying the Galaxy s7 edge was leaked. And Kanye West causes a torrent of controversy. I'm Iyaz Akhtar filling in for Bridget Kerry who's on assignment. This is your C net update. [MUSIC] Did the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge get leaked by Samsung itself? Check out this unlisted video posted by Samsung Indonesia on YouTube. It's title is Samsung Galaxy: Get Ready for the Next Galaxy. It shows up a Galaxy Edge of some kind and reports are buzzing everywhere that it must the Galaxy S7 Edge. There's a shot of the phone in the pouring rain. The S6 Edge is not water resistant. So people are jumping to the conclusion that this must be the S7 Edge. Strangely, in the description itself, Samsung Indonesia says the scene in the video is for dramatization purposes only. This product is not water resistant and it should not be exposed to and/or submerged into water or liquid. So, everything at seven. Compared to video, to images posted by Evan [UNKNOWN] on a [UNKNOWN] Twitter account. Is this the same phone? I'm not sure, we'll all find out the twenty first, at Samsung's unpacked event. Samsung's arch rival, LG, introduced new phones, to remind people, hey, LG still exists. Okay. That was harsh. LG makes some really great phones. Say hello to the LG Stylus 2 and according to LG, it has a pen with a nano coated tip for more accuracy compared to the previous rubber tipped pen. That's a quote. But wait there's more. LG also introduced to X cam phone, which has two cameras on the back. And the extreme phone which features a second 1.6 inch screen that is above the phones 4.6 inch screen. All of this phone officially debut at Mobile World Congress where they will likely be overshadowed by LG's new flagship the LGG 5. Meanwhile, Jay Z's Music streaming service Tidal is getting everyone's attention now Thanks to Kanye West. West's new album The Life of Pablo hit Tidal first and was available for purchase on West's on site. West then pulled the album from his site and announced on Twitter, My album will never never never be on Apple. And it will never be for sale... You can only get it on Tidal. The Tidal app then became the number one app in Apple's US app store. Torrent Freak reports that The Life of Pablo has already been illegally torrented half a million times. In other West news, he announced on Twitter that he is $53 million in debt. Then he hit up Mark Zuckerberg for a billion dollar investment in Kanye West's ideas. After a series of tweets directed at Zuckerberg. He then added, hey Larry Page, I'm down for your help too. That's it for this very odd edition of Tech New Update.
