The iPhone 7 isn’t expected to be launched until later this year, but as usual, rumours on the highly anticipated – and controversial – device have already cropped up. According to an anonymous source, which is said to be reliable, the iPhone 7 will not have a protruding camera anymore; it will also feature a cleaner design with the absence of plastic antenna lines found on the latest iterations of the iPhone.
Samsung is rumoured to be officially unveiling the long awaited Gear 360 VR camera some time this month. The Gear 360 camera will be able to capture 360-degree pictures and videos that may be fully immersed using the recently announced Samsung Gear VR.

An unidentified source is claiming that Apple is preparing to announce a new iPad Air (possibly called the iPad Air 3) at an event in mid-March.

Apple may be preparing to launch a new budget iPhone 5SE as early as March 2016. The new phone would replace the iPhone 5s in current the lineup, which is an interesting departure from Apple’s traditional method of reducing the price of older models to fill the budget iPhone role.
Samsung’s next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S7, has appeared in the Antutu database. The benchmark reports that it has spotted the smartphone running tests, although the specifications aren’t quite what was expected.
