Samsung is mere hours away from announcing the Galaxy S5 to complement those new Gear smart watches, but it seems a few devices are already floating around the show. The leaked images show off a phone that looks very much like the Galaxy S4 with some Note 3 influence.

The back has a loose dimple pattern, not faux-leather like the Note 3 and Pro tablets. There is also a large camera sensor, flash, and another sensor of unknown identity.

Sony's SmartBand is a little more than a fitness tracker, but it's not a smart watch either. This device ties into the Sony Lifelog app to track your movement and connect the dots between your physical and digital activities. Interested? The SmartBand and Lifelog app are hitting the market in over 60 countries next month. That means only a few more weeks of using your dumb brain to remember things that happen to you.

File this under more is better – Qualcomm has just announced new ARM chips with more bits and more cores than ever before. The Snapdragon 610 and 615 are the chip maker's new 64-bit mobile processors, and the 615 packs eight CPU cores. Despite the big headlining features, these aren't intended to be flagship chips.

Qualcomm is in the habit of making custom CPUs for its ARM chips – those are the Krait cores you hear so much about.

iNAND_2014_64GB

When a new Android device comes out, we spend a lot of time obsessing over which ARM chip it runs and how much RAM there is, but the storage speed often has a significant impact on performance too. Although, mobile flash storage controllers haven't been been improving at the same rate as other hardware. SanDisk hopes to fix that with the iNAND Extreme embedded storage platform, which offers three times the random write speed and twice the sequential read speed of current solutions.

16 Gear 2 neo orange 2

The new Samsung smartwatches might not have Android, but that doesn't mean they will be devoid of apps. PayPal has posted a video of its new smartwatch app in action on the Gear 2. This is a cartoonish rendering, but the real app will reportedly function just like we see in the video.

The expansive parking lots of your local mall can be a nightmare as you scan the sea of metal and glass to find your car. There are plenty of apps that will set a GPS marker to help you find it, but you have to actually remember to use them. Auto Finder takes care of things for you all on its own, though. Just install the app, and it always knows where you left the car.

02 Gear 2 black 2

Samsung released the Galaxy Gear a few short months ago, but the company has just made its second-generation smartwatches official. The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo have dropped more than the Galaxy branding – these devices aren't running Android at all. Samsung has made the jump to Tizen for its wearables.

Nothing like a little robot-on-robot violence, right? Kongregate's newest game on Android had a good run over on iOS and the name tells you pretty much everything you need to know about it – Endless Boss Fight. You fight bosses, endlessly.

Your main character is a little punching robot that has to do battle with big, heavily armed robot boss machines. You duck, weave, and punch your way through one after another until you lose.
