Samsung will be taking the wraps off the Galaxy S8 on March 29th in NYC

Mobile World Congress 2017 has only just started, but Samsung's already looking forward to bigger things. A teaser image that was sent out has revealed that a Galaxy device (pretty clearly the Galaxy S8) will be "unboxed" at 11am EST on March 29th, 2017 at Samsung's Unpacked event in New York City.

Nokia takes the wraps off of the Nokia 5, 3, and 3310, also announces global availability of the Nokia 6 and more

I have fond memories of Nokia, like many others, so I was excited to watch the Finnish firm's announcements today at MWC. The presentation started with more talk on the OZO 360° virtual reality camera, which was used to livestream everything to YouTube 360. Also of note was that Nokia is finalizing its purchase of Withings, the French connected devices company. Most importantly, however, were the phone announcements.

The Nokia 6, formerly exclusive to China, is going global.  We also saw the new Nokia 5, 3, and the relaunched, redesigned version of the fan favorite 3310.

Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona has begun, and manufacturers are releasing new tech left and right. This year, Motorola/Lenovo brought along the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus, which make some pretty significant changes over their predecessors, mostly for the better.

Huawei announces the sportier, chunkier Watch 2 with GPS, Android Pay, and an LTE option

After the new P10 and P10 Plus, Huawei used its time on stage at Mobile World Congress to unveil the follow-up to its Huawei Watch. And just like we suspected from the previous leaks, this new watch is... nothing like the first. It's chunkier, sportier, blacker, and has a busier look and feel.

The Watch 2 will be available in both a regular and a Classic version, with a Porsche Design edition also coming. The announcement and press material, to be honest, are quite confusing and leave us scratching our heads as to which one will be available in LTE, which one is a Bluetooth model only, and which one is coming to the US.

Huawei P10 and P10 Plus official: 5.2" and 5.5" displays, Leica dual cameras, and plenty of colors

Beside the LG G6 and Galaxy S8, one of the most leaked devices in the past couple of weeks has been the Huawei P10 (and P10 Plus), the follow-up to last year's loved and respected P9 and P9 Plus. After seeing it in small renders that showed all its potential colors then catching it in a better resolution, we now have the official device in front of us, ceramics, sandblast, colors, and all.

First, here's a quick rundown of the specs of both devices:

LG G6 hands-on: LG asks for a G5 do-over

To put it gently, the G5 was a controversial smartphone. Many took issue with LG's modular approach, which came at the expense of ruggedization, battery capacity, and, well, expense. But even disregarding its most-cited flaw, the G5 simply wasn't a smartphone that was appreciably better at just being a smartphone than much of its competition - and that's certainly part of what sank it. I won't belabor the point, but after using the G6 for some time (albeit in preproduction guise), I think LG really has taken criticism of the G5 seriously. (Perhaps a little too seriously in some ways.)

[Update: Carrier availability] LG announces the G6: 5.7" 18:9 screen, Snapdragon 821, Android 7.1, and dual-13MP cameras

LG announced the G6 in Barcelona at MWC 2017 today, confirming the heavily leaked handset's existence. Specifications are largely as expected, but LG has not announced specific pricing or availability information today. (For the US, you can probably expect that news to come via individual carriers, not LG.) The phone will come in three colors - white, silver, and black.

The G6's 5.7" QHD (2880x1440, 564PPI) LCD display - with HDR10 and Dolby Vision support - is configured in an 18:9 aspect ratio, making the phone actually slightly slimmer than the outgoing G5, while the display itself grows taller.

Google makes a witty and endearing Google Photos ad for the Oscars

The world is all eyes and ears today for one of the most important events that take place each year. Oh, you think I'm talking about MWC in Barcelona? Ha, neeeeerd! No, I'm talking about the 89th Academy Awards ceremony which celebrates the best in film for the past year. But for Google, the real award belongs to you and your shots and creations.

El Goog has started its Oscars campaign with a couple of tweets (1 and 2) saying that regardless of who's the big winner in the ceremony, the award for Best Picture belongs to you. That was followed up with a 1-minute video ad for Google Photos already posted on YouTube and likely to be aired during the ceremony tonight, but maybe only in its shorter version.
