Samsung Unveils Waterproof Galaxy S7 Handsets

Samsung Unveils Waterproof Galaxy S7 Handsets

It's also worth mentioning that LG Hi-Fi Plus with B&O Play can be used either as a module with the LG G5 or as a separate Hi-Fi DAC by connecting to any smartphone or PC.

But ultimately, the Gear 360 is mainly another way to help Samsung sell more of its flagship smartphones - specifically the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, which also launched on Sunday.

The virtual reality eyewear has been created to work with an LG smartphone and unlike other VR headsets, the LG 360 VR doesn't require a smartphone to be inserted in the headset.

The announcements Sunday at the Mobile World Congress wireless show in Barcelona, Spain, come as worldwide smartphone growth has slowed. These are the LG 360 VR headset and LG 360 sphere-degree camera.

The market research firm said that the 9.7 percent increase in smartphone sales in the final quarter of a year ago over the same period in 2014 takes the industry all the way back to 2008 when the global economy was in crisis. A wide range of accessories is available with the camera including a lens for poor light conditions. If all goes according to the plan, the change should give us VR videos with higher quality that occupy space more efficiently on the lightweight device.

It also gets an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, support for Quick Charge 3.0 and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Special Olympics Development Director Robin Anderson said it's rewarding to see so many people come out and support the cause. With temperatures reaching the 70s Saturday, there was nothing polar about the Polar Plunge .


Fellow Korean manufacturer Samsung is expected to announce the next generation of its Galaxy S handset - expected to be the S7 - which should follow the all-metal design Samsung introduced in the S6 a year ago. While the standard model will be the focus, the Edge is likely to be a more premium version with a curved screen.

"I've been waiting for the day to come when we can deliver this experience", he said.

Lastly, LG is getting into the VR game with its own headset, the LG 360 VR.

The customization makes LG's G5 standout in a mobile market that's pretty saturated with similar devices, and the company is showing a lot of ingenuity with the mobile accessories it will be releasing alongside the phone.

Content created can also be enhanced so you can enjoy the full experience with your Samsung Gear VR. There's a refreshing playfulness to LG's approach and even with these initial devices (there's a drone coming too, apparently) there's something for everyone - a connected toy, both sides of VR, audiophile expansion.
