The latest Samsung Galaxy S7 leak suggests that the South Korean tech giant is positioning its next flagship smartphone as a direct rival to Apple's iPhone 6s.
Based on the new leak, Samsung will release three Galaxy S7 models — the S7, S7 Edge, and the S7 Edge Plus. The upcoming smartphones will run on a processor that matches the one in the iPhone 6s and will have a better display resolution, according to Network World.
Rumor has it that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will sport a 5.1-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixel at 577 ppi, but the latter will have rounded-glass edges. The S7 Edge Plus, on the other hand, will come with a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixel at 534 ppi. These display resolutions are superior to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, the report details. more >>

Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking believes humans might destroy the planet within the next thousand to 10,000 years, and suggests the only way for people to survive is to colonize other planets.
"Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth in a given year may be quite low, it adds up over time, and becomes a near certainty in the next thousand or 10,000 years," Hawking said, according to BBC News.
"By that time we should have spread out into space, and to other stars, so a disaster on Earth would not mean the end of the human race," he added. more >>
