Mobile World Congress (MWC) is right around the corner, and so are leaks and rumors of devices that round up the cyberspace. Here are five devices that we ought to expect to be revealed at the show next week.
Samsung Galaxy S6
After a year of reported financial losses, Samsung wants to take a bite back into the top of the flagship smartphone chain with the purported release of the Galaxy S6 and its sibling, the S6 Edge. Both share almost the same size, and reportedly will be powered by Samsung’s own Exynos processor. The S6 will also sport a bigger camera sensor, a new metallic design, and will be available in three different colors. Can the Korean electronics giant get up its feet again?
HTC One M9
The M8 sure was clamored for its undenying beauty, but it hasn’t managed to rack up it sales over its predecessor. HTC takes it a notch higher this time around with the M9, sporting a QHD display, Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, a waterproof body and more megapixels in the camera that can surely give other flagships a run for their money.
Along with the M9, a bigger sibling is reportedly arriving. Named the One M9 Plus, it sports a 5.2-inch screen, QHD display and an added fingerprint scanner.
Lenovo Vibe Shot
Lenovo’s barging into MWC with six new smartphones, and the Vibe Shot certainly is for the photography-centric individuals who like to take shots ever so often, It has a 16MP camera with BSI sensor and triple-tone LED Flash to boot, and it will be one of the very few that will offer a dedicated shutter button up its brushed metal edges.
A new Microsoft Phone?
It’s not certainly a flagship model, but reports suggest that Microsoft may be unveiling a few new smartphone devices at the MWC. What devices, you say? We don’t know either, but reports suggest to a few 4-inch entry level devices, some 5-inch smartphones, and a 5.7-inch phablet, all of which will be running the Redmond Giant’s own mobile flavor.
A new Huaweoi Honor smartphone/watch?
Rounding up our list is Huawei, which ended 2014 with a bang as it unveiled a slew of new Honor devices. Rumors point out that the Chinese electronics giant is preparing to unveil its first smartwatch, reportedly not bearing the Google Wear standard.
Next week will surely be a blockbuster week for tech industry as companies will challenge each other to stay on top of the news headlines. Mobile World Congress is happening March 2-5, so don’t miss out on our coverage and updates.
