Phenomenology of a new 750 GeV resonance

Recently, ATLAS and CMS experiments reported an excess in the high energy diphoton mass spectrum around 750 GeV with local significance of about 3.6 σ and 2.6 σ, respectively. If this resonance would be confirmed with next year LHC data, it will be a promising sign of the new physics beyond the Standard Model. In this talk, first I will review the CMS and ATLAS reports and then talk about some phenomenological aspects of this new bump.
