Samsung's Galaxy S7 Edge flagship is barely out of the gates, but already the company is issuing what it describes as an "urgent" update. Of course, it is common for products to arrive with small teething problems, but it is rare to see any update billed as urgent, so what?s the deal here?
Both Best Buy and Verizon have started shipping the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, the two new flagships from the Korean giant. Samsung said during the launch of the handsets that it would launch the devices on March 11, but it seems the two U.S. based retailers are getting ahead of the game and fulfilling pre-order commitments early.
Samsung unveiled its new Gear 360 virtual reality camera at MWC late last month, and now the company has released an infographic that details the device in full.
Sony was the first, and so far only, smartphone company to debut a handset rocking a 4K resolution screen, but while the Xperia Z5 Premium has been described as a gimmick, one of Sony's main rivals thinks 4K will become more popular in the mobile space.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are a pair of smartphones that are packed to the gills with the latest mobile hardware, a veritable mix of the latest and greatest technology. However, while Samsung has spared no expense in virtually all departments, it has seemingly stopped short of pushing the boat out for quick charging.
Samsung may have been focused on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones at MWC this week, but the Korean company also found time to launch another product. The item in question is the Gear 360, a camera that allows users to take 360 degree images and videos, following a similar product launched by LG this week, the 360 VR.
We have already seen LG's new G5 flagship, a smartphone that aims for innovation. Samsung was never going to produce something as fresh with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, and so it proves with the two flagships revealed at MWC. Sure, fresh innovation may be missing from these handsets, but instead Samsung has set about perfecting devices that were already among the very best on the market anyway.

Samsung has finally gotten around to rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow for its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. It's just as well really as the current flagships are about to be replaced by the Galaxy S7 range at the end of February at MWC. So, at least many Galaxy S6 owners will have Marshmallow by then.
Samsung's market lead has declined in recent years, the company sells fewer devices and has seen profits for its smartphone division take a hit as a result. Of course, Sammy still thrives as the number one smartphone brand in the world, but the company is not tasting the sheer dominance it once did. It seems that one market particularly has caused Samsung's problems, China.
