Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge shows up in video ahead of Mobile World Congress

If you’re in the market for a new high-end smartphone, good news! Just ahead of Mobile World Congress next week, someone at Samsung Indonesia let slip a video of the new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

The video highlights two aspects of the phone: wireless charging and water resistance. And of course, it works well with the Gear S2 smartwatch. The short video doesn’t elaborate on any tech specs. Also, it looks like you have to train really damn hard to be a world class… archer? Who knew?

Speaking of android phones, we just want to give you a quick heads up about a dangerous text message that’s going around. If you get it, DON’T click on it. Doing so will infect your phone with a virus and give hackers complete control of your device. They can see everything you’re doing on it and even wipe it remotely if that’s the mood they’re in.

But Tidal users who ponied up $20 to actually download the album are also frozen out as no download seems to be forthcoming – the album will only stream.

Naturally, the Tidal app spiked to the top of Apple’s App store overnight, and in case you missed it, Beyonce is offering a free 90-day trial of Tidal, so in effect, you could listen to Life of Pablo… for free.
