Ice Universe

Although the Galaxy S8 won't be at Mobile World Congress, it's expected to have an unveiling sometime in March. But that hasn't stopped the leaks from coming. Today, we have yet another drip of info about Samsung's upcoming flagship.

After showing off pictures with the screen off, Twitter user "Ice Universe" has some convincing pictures of the device with the screen on. They give us a great idea of just how slim the bezels are, and we can see the rounded display corners, just like the Xiaomi Mi Mix and the upcoming LG G6.

Lexus

The new Lexus LC 500 is a bold move for a company that's built a reputation on vehicles that excel at comfort but leave the performance stuff to a light dusting. It's a faithful evolution of the LF-LC concept car and a spiritual successor to the hand-built V10-engined LFA, just 500 of which were made. But the $100,000 LC 500 is real, tangible, and capable in ways that a $375,000 LFA never could be.

Think of the LC 500 as a statement of Lexus' engineering, as it will also provide the basic platform of the next-generation LS sedan and other rear-drive models of the future. But history will look on the LC chiefly as the first time Lexus' current design lexicon—dominated by that massive grille—actually works visually. There's some original thinking in there, with visual harmony uncommon to most other Lexus models. The tail lights, for instance, use 80 concentric-looking LEDs and internal mirrors that filter a certain amount of light to appear three-dimensional and almost like a jet's afterburners. You’d think the LC 500 gives the eye so many interesting visual details that it would seem fussy, but it doesn't.
