Tech rewind: Samsung, Apple and Twitter top the news. LOS ANGELES — A new iPhone won't be out until September, but that hasn't stopped analysts from weighing in on new features. We begin with that new iPhone, one that could come in three different models, have wireless charging, an OLED display screen and cost over $1,000.

In other phone news, Samsung is expected to update its Galaxy line with a new model in the spring that has a curved screen, and the South Korean company's answer to Apple's Siri, Microsoft's Cortana, the Google assistant and Amazon's Alexa, named Bixby, according to a Wall Street Journal report. Our Ed Baig says Bixby has got to be an improvement over Samsung’s existing "(and frankly underwhelming)" S-Voice feature. We look forward to asking Bixby all sorts of crazy questions, and wonder how much "My Favorite Martian," and "The Incredible Hulk" trivia it can answer. (Kids--ask your parents for the reference.) Twitter also reported a net loss of $167.1 million and gave a first quarter forecast that fell short of what Wall Street had expected.
