Samsung’s three-sided display may make the Galaxy S6 Edge a little different, but it won’t be the most unique smartphone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week.

Monohm, a company based in Berkeley, California, that makes “heirloom electronics,” will announce a perfectly round smartphone called the Runcible that’s designed to look like a pocket watch.


If Firefox is your browser of choice on Android, then you’ll be pleased to know it’s getting Chromecast support. The ability to stream to Google’s $35 dongle is already integrated into the latest Firefox beta — which is available now — signaling its upcoming debut in the public release.


Chromecast has been a runaway hit for Google selling millions of units within months of its release. Mozilla is now set to battle it out against Google’s $35 HDMI streamer with its own Firefox OS powered device that will work in a way similar to its competitor.

The unnamed device will allow users to beam content from their mobile devices, PC or Firefox browser to their TV.
