Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Huawei Watch: New devices for preview at MWC

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: A bendable smartphone

Is Samsung tightening the match with Apple on design?

Huawei Watch: The Rolex of smartwatches?

With 42mm diameter in the watch surface, the Huawei Watch is compact and has a design typical for the luxury watch market. Straps also come in sizes that fit women’s wrists. Like most of its siblings, this watch will have a fitness tracker, heart rate monitor and bluetooth for sharing. Huawei explains more the idea behind this wearable Android:

HTC One M9 and M9 Plus: Unsurprising but more powerful

The M9 is the successor to HTC One M8 with improvements on the specs side. Its UltraPixel camera is moved from the back to the front, giving space to a 20-megapixel sensor. And, here’s an added perk: it now powers a 2,900mAh battery and is expected to last much longer than the M8. Take a closer look from this hands-on preview by The Verge:
