Leaked photos show off the actual Samsung Galaxy S7

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] Googlicious. What's up. Brian Tong here with all the Google that we can pack inside of a show. And we know that Samsung's next unpacked event is coming February the 21st. And we'll have all the live coverage for it right here on CNET, even if that's a Sunday morning. Now we've seen renders of the Galaxy S7 but reviewdao.vn appear to give us a first glimpse of an actual Galaxy S7 that matches up the pictures from Evan Blass last week. And another image of the reported real Galaxy S7 also appeared on Weebo forum that match up as well. All pretty much confirming what we will find out on the 21st. Now a patent application from Patently Mobile has revealed How Samsung plans to reinvent their S Pen. Now, I know you didn't think it could be done. Well the new design shows off how users will be able to pull the Samsung S Pen partially out of its holding place and then bend it into a locked position that would allow it to double as a stand for your phone. Pretty slick. Now this isn't final, but it's what Samsung is thinking of, and it should be a no-brainer to implement. All right, HTC will reportedly not be announcing anything at Mobile World Congress, but there have been leaks about the successor to the HTC One M9 phone that's been code-named the HTC Perfume. That name stinks. But thanks to Evan Blass once again, He posted a picture of the rumored design of the HTC M10, or perfume, that shows the removal of the dual front facing speakers, really an HTC staple, and it's also rumored to be switching away from an LCD panel to an amo lead. Now, we've been talking a lot about Google VR lately, but a new report from the financial times Says Google is working on more than just a Google VR headset, they are working on Android VR. The goal is to improve mobile virtual reality by integrating software directly into Android instead of being isolated in the single Google cardboard app. The new Android VR software might be shown off [UNKNOWN] in May while the hardware could be coming in the fall. All right there are lots of players in the media streaming business And Google is looking to be an even bigger one after a report from Variety says Google is one the tech companies negotiating with the National Football League for the digital rights to Thursday Night Football. CBS and NBC are splitting the TV rights to broadcast those streams but streaming to non-subscribers was not part of that deal. So normally you have to use a cable log-in to stream content from NBC or CBS apps But a stream from Google directly would most likely not. And we know content is king, and this would be a big move for Google if they get the rights. But come on, football fans know Thursday games are typically weaker matchups, with teams that have been beaten up from a short week, and it makes for a poor product. But, you think the NFL cares about that? No. All right. Google is testing out their self driving cars in several U.S. cities and London wants in on the action. The Guardian reports the Deputy Mayor for Transport has met with Google to persuade the company to extend its pilot test to London. So that Google can move to other countries quickly when it's ready. London wants to be one of the first, even if Google has said they are still focused on the U.S. And new FTC documents have revealed that Google wants to disconnect itself from wall chargers and is testing wireless chargers that could beam up energy through the bottom of the car. Two companies, New York based [UNKNOWN] Power and Philadelphia based Momentum Dynamics have already sent systems to Google for testing. The Nissan [UNKNOWN] and the Chevy Volt have wireless charging products already available but set up isn't easy and therefore it hasn't taken off. All right, that's gonna do it for this week's show. You can email us as googlicious@cnet.com Or tweet me @briantong. Thanks for watching, we'll see you guys next time for some more of that Googleicious. Googleicious.
