01/03/2017 - 5:10pm Samsungs Galaxy S8 has leaked in a series of live images from MWC 2017 We already had an inkling from the rumour mill that the Galaxy S8 was going to be in attendance at MWC 2017, it just wasn't going to show its face publicly, it was instead going to be revealed behind closed doors to a select cabal of Samsung partners, carrier networks, and similar industry bods.

The foldable DJI Mavic Pro Drone and Samsung Gear 360 Camera The question driving Snap’s hardware ambitions is: What can’t your phone camera do?

People often stick their camera phones in the air and do a slow pan to show off where they are. A 360 camera could do a much better job of making friends feel like they’re there with you. The company is said to have a specific strategy for mergers and acquisitions that uses new startups to "gather information" about technologies it lacks expertise in, sometimes acquiring the companies and sometimes not. An example is given describing when Snap met with drone startup Lily before the latter company eventually shut down , and now rumors suggesting Snap's entry into the drone market have begun circling.
