If you’re hoping for a surprise LG G4 unveiling at Mobile World Congress next month, then you’re setting yourself up for disappointment. A source close to the South Korean company has confirmed that it’s next flagship won’t be arriving until April at the earliest.
Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017
Just like in previous years, Sony will be showing off its latest devices at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month, but whether the Japanese company will announce any new ones has been unclear. For now, it is keeping any plans quiet, but sources say there will be a Sony event on March 2.
Mobile World Congress came by and went away last week, and we finally have some time to sit down and look at it in hindsight without the rush of all the announcements and hands-on videos. Here are the six most notable things we have learned from the event.
We have had a pretty eventful week so far with the launch of several new smartphones and tablets. While manufacturers like Lenovo, Huawei and others had several devices to show off, it’s the biggies like Samsung, Nokia, LG and Sony that made all the noise. And in order to make it easier to keep track of your favorite smartphones, we have compiled a little list with their announced or rumored launch date as well as pricing. Read on for the details.
Although Motorola’s presence in the MWC is very limited, the company has given away some interesting tidbits on its future. One of the prominent announcements made was about launching its very own smartwatch later this year in addition to the Moto X successor. The company’s Senior VP of Product Management, Rick Osterloh claimed that Motorola’s upcoming smartwatch will address some main user concerns like styling and battery life.
The All New HTC One is scheduled for an announcement later next month with a relatively familiar hardware specs sheet. And in order to stand out from the competition, the company is rumored to showcase a unique dual camera setup on the smartphone with increased emphasis on low light photography. HTC was present on Day 2 of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to give detailed information on this technology.
While the Samsung Galaxy S5 announcement was feature packed, the Korean manufacturer couldn’t share details on all aspects of the smartphone. So, following our first round-up of hands-on videos of the Galaxy S5, here’s another compilation of videos showing off in details all the key features of the latest Samsung flagship.
Samsung has already unveiled the Galaxy S5 along with a trio of Gear watches. Even though the S5 has a typical Galaxy branded design, consumers are mainly interested in knowing how the phone stacks up against its predecessor — the Galaxy S4.
By now, you all know that Nokia did the unthinkable yesterday and announced an Android line-up of devices at Mobile World Congress, after criticizing the platform for years and pushing Windows Phone with their Lumia brand. That launch comes so close to the company’s smartphone division being completely enveloped under Microsoft — end of Q1 2014 should be the final date — that we’re left scratching our head. Despite the huge amount of hands-on videos that have showed us everything we need to know about the X series, we’re left with many unanswered questions. Here they are.
