Samsung Galaxy S7 to be unveiled same day as LG G5

Culture
Samsung is about to reveal its next big challenger to the iPhone. I'm Bridget Carey, this is your CNet update. [MUSIC] In just three weeks, Samsung is gonna show off it's next top of the line Galaxy phone. the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge will be revealed at an event on February 21st which is during a big mobile trade show in Barcelona, Spain called Mobile World Congress. In this Samsung teaser video, you see someone putting on a Gear VR headset and then there's a glowing box where the corners look like the number seven. Of course this is to hint at the galaxy S seven And some early reports and rumors hint that we could see a micro S D card slot in the model to expand the memory. And it would have a pressure sensitive screen like the iPhone. I could also be powered by U S B C. That's a new type of U S B port that offers fast charging and data transfer. And this is what it could look like, according to some leaked images tweeted out by mobile reporter Evan Blass. And he's been right about such types of reports in the past. Now knowing Samsung, I'm sure we're going to see several flavors of the S7 at this event. But LG will not let Samsung hog the Android phone spotlight. On the same day, at the S7 event, LG is having its own event. And we're expecting to see its new top phone, the LG G5. It's gonna be a busy end of the month for mobile. But back to Samsung. Those of you that use the default Samsung Android internet browser will be able to install add blocker extension apps, such as the Adblock Fast or Crystal app. This is the same as how the iPhone can block with the Safari browser when you download add-on apps. This now works for those with the newest version of Android called Marshmallow and supports coming for those with the older Android Lollipop. Blocking ads can give you a speed boost in loading some sites but Google is looking to give you a whole new type of speed to your internet 5G, and we may be able to get 5G signals into us by solar powered drones. According to a report by the guardian, this concept is called project sky bender and Google is testing it now over New Mexico. The test is to carry over 5G signal, by drone, over millimeter waves. Which is much faster than today's four g speeds but those waves can only travel short distances. Of course Google already has high speed internet, as it offers to some homes as Google Fiber, but it could be adding a telephone service to Some Fiber subscribers are reporting to get invitations to add a phone service to their package and it would link all of your phone numbers, even your mobile number, to one single number and the features are the same you would get with Google Voice Looks like Google is going for the triple play in Internet, TV, and now phone. That's it for this tech news update, there's more at cnet.com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [SOUND]
