The Mobile World Congress is round the corner, with just a day left for the event to kick off at Barcelona, technology enthusiasts want to know as much as possible about the launches in the mega event this year.
Premium mobile brands are launching phones, tablets and wearbles at the MWC. Rumours have clouded the stratosphere of the mobile market with these upcoming launches. All said and done, here's what we know.
Samsung seems all set to launch the Galaxy S6. This phone has been in discussion ever since Samsung launched the Galaxy S5 and has been very quiet in the Galaxy segment until now. The smartphone is to acquire the name of Samsung's most premium device so far.
Moving at par with Samsung is HTC which plans on unveiling the HTC ONE M9 at Barcelona. The ONE M9 is said to have a set of serious upgrades from it's predecessors. The device is a much anticipated piece of technology HTC fans have been craving for.
The South-Korean mobile giant LG is also in news regarding the launch of their latest smartphone LG G4. The phone is to be on the top of LG's premium .segment of smartphones. How well it competes with the rest of the brands is yet to be seen.
After acquiring the Finnish mobile phone company Nokia, Microsoft has not spoken much about it's latest releases but the recent cancellation of the release of it's rumored Lumia 1030 McLaren smartphone has led people to question whether they'll release this phone at the MWC. The Lumia 1030 McLaren is a camera specific device which is supposed to house a 50MP camera exceeding the present leader in the segment, the Lumia 1020, by nine mighty pixels.
Huawei also appears to be launching a new device at the MWC. Huawei has announced it will hold a press conference just before the doors open at MWC 2015, saying it will reveal "surprises that will empower you to set your dreams free." Certainly this little piece of dialogue was excellently put forward but we are anticipating that Huawei might launch the Huawei P8 at the MWC 2015.
The business phone manufacturing comany from Canada, BlackBerry might launch the Z20 at MWC 2015. Previous rumours pointed a 5-inch display with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a February release date. BlackBerry has yet to acknowledge the existence of this touchscreen smartphone but we figure out that the Canadians were waiting for the MWC to launch their device.
Apart from these high-end mobile phones, Sony will release the Z4 tablet at the MWC 2015. After the accidental revealing of the Xperia Z4 Tablet within an app this tuesday, Sony has posted a teaser on Twitter saying, "Slimmer. Lighter. Brighter. All will be revealed on 02.03.15. #Xperia #SonyMWC." Thus, it can be chewed over that we are likely to see this tablet at the MWC.
Wearable gadgets are also to showcase at this mega event in Barcelona. Here's what we know from that end.
LG is said to lauch the LG URBANE which is a smartwatch from LG after the LG G watch. The URBANE is rumoured to feature the same specifications as the G Watch but it would be more of a classic timepiece with a metal body and a metal strap.
Acer is also rumoured to launch a wearable device. Acer is not new to wearables, it recently launced the fitness-tracking band called Liquid Leap. The band is until now Acer's first wearable device, as well as its smallest touchscreen device with a 1-inch display. Like the Liquid Leap, the upcoming wearable might also be able to offer functions like fitness tracking, call and SMS notification, as well as music control.
