The Polaroid Snap is a new 10-megapixel camera that instantly prints out photos you take without any ink. It works with ZINK paper that produces 2-inch-by-3-inch prints and essentially lets you keep physical copies of photos you’d put on Instagram and probably quickly forget about.

Believe it or not, it’s also pretty affordable.

After a successful round of funding on Kickstarter in 2013, the makers of the iblazr are back with a new generation: the iblazr 2. The LED flash accessory for iOS and Android has now gone wireless and includes a number of features and improvements to help your phone’s cameras out at night when it tends to┬ástruggles the most.

Samsung has sent out media events for a March 1st event right before Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The Korean company is widely expected to debut the Samsung Galaxy S6, and judging by the invitation, the flagship device will feature a flexible display like the Galaxy Note Edge.

The smartphone business hasn’t been so hot for Samsung in recent quarters, with the iPhone eating the Galaxy’s lunch on the high end and aggressive competitors like Xiaomi squeezing in at the low end. This event will be Samsung’s shot to prove that the Galaxy lineup hasn’t lost its mojo.

LAS VEGAS — I’ve seen pictures of the bizarre YotaPhone, a premium Android/e-ink smartphone from Russia, but when I first held it at International CES this week, I realized it’s something you have to use to understand.

Cult_of_Mac_CES_2015 With everyone but BlackBerry seemingly copying the iPhone’s design these days, the YotaPhone (now in its second generation) stands out as something strikingly unique. It features a 1,920 by 1,080-pixel, 5-inch LCD display on one side, and a responsive e-ink screen on the other.

It’s not something you’ll ever see out of a company like Apple, but you have to give the YotaPhone kudos for being an oddball.
