With Mobile World Congress over most of the really big news is behind us, as Samsung’s and LG’s device launches have been officially announced and consumers are now awaiting the time to buy one of the three new phones from the two manufacturers. Even with MWC over though, there was still quite a few interesting things happening in the past week that are worth catching up on. Google recently launched the hands-free mobile payment system that was first talked about months ago appropriately named, Hands Free, and is now piloting the payment system in San Francisco.

Samsung’s Android Marshmallow upgrade plans have been revealed so users now have a better understanding of when their devices will get the software update, and users of Samsung Pay in South Korea will now be able to use the feature at supporting ATMs, which means this particular function could be expanding to the U.S. and other regions in the future. Amazon has launched a new set of smart speakers this past week called the Echo Dot and Tap Portable, and the public has finally gotten their first real look at what appears to be press renders and a final design for HTC’s upcoming flagship, what is now known to be the HTC 10. If you’ve missed any of the biggest news from this past week, you can find all the links down below.
