MWC 2016: What to expect from LG, Huawei, Samsung and more
Mobile World Congress is just two days away and we have lined up a few predictions on what the tech giants may have in store. Let’s take a look.
Microsoft hasn’t made any press announcements on its participation at the MWC this year. If they do make an appearance to the show, expect the long awaited Lumia 650 to launch. This Windows 10 powered phone would sport a 5 inch screen and pack a Snapdragon 210 chipset.
After the release of the epic devices, Mate 8 and Huawei Watch, Huawei is expected to have something big wrapped for the MWC Press conference. There are hints that the they are already ready to unveil the next smartphone to be named as the Huawei P9 while other rumors point to a second generation Watch directly competing with the Apple Watch, the Android-powered Huawei Watch 2.
Huawei’s MWC press conference takes place on 21 February at 2pm. Let’s see what they have in store for us!
Unlike Microsoft, LG hasn’t shied away from press releases. Earlier this week, LG tipped off the press about unveiling their next smartphone, LG G5.
The G5 has been reportedly said to have a dual display, a Snapdragon 820 and a 20 megapixel unit camera. With all that and the premium design, we are expecting LG G5 to steal the show if the next in line doesn’t do it already.
It’s no secret that Samsung is going to unveil its flagships, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge at MWC 2016. We have a pretty clear idea what these handsets may have to offer. Rumors suggest that Samsung has a good chance of bringing back the microSD slot in those models. As added perks, the smartphones in question could have waterproof build.
Samsung may not put all its cards on the smartphones table. The Galaxy Tab S3 in two variants could be something to look forward to too at the event.
It’s been a while now that Motorola and Lenovo have partnered up to manufacture smartphones. We don’t know much about what may come out of this partnership but there’s a chance that they will launch a new addition to the Moto E series at the event.
Sony has remained mysteriously silent while all the other tech firms went on to warm their crowd up with teasers. There’s been no word on a new addition to its Xperia series. Come to think of it, Sony may not have a smartphone in store for us at all. Instead, the Xperia Z5 tablet has a better chance of making a debut at MWC.
