It’s a time of Mobile World Congress, one of the biggest technology trade shows on the planet. The event starts on Monday in Barcelona and will bring a lot of new smartphones and tablet announcements from different brands.
Here are the five smartphones that you should not miss at Mobile World Congress.
Huawei Ascend P2
The Chinese giant Huawei has become a key player in the smartphone market, becoming the third largest manufacturer of mobile phones in just a short time. The emerging tech giant will try to gain maximum out of the event with its new range of smartphones. Specifically, Huawei is expected to present its ultra slim smartphone Ascend P2. The smartphone will feature a monstrous 8-core processor and display in between 4.5 to 4.7-inch. Huawei seems ready to be one on one with recently revealed Sony Xperia Z and HTC one.
ZTE Grand Memo
Apparently, Asian emerging technology seems to reign during the Mobile World Congress. ZTE has confirmed in a tweet that the company is not only launching a phablet named Grand Memo but also one of the first phones that runs Mozilla’s Firefox OS.
ZTE is aiming a direct competition with the Galaxy Note with its new 5.7-inch screen Grand Memo. The phablet will come with a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor and 13-megapixel camera. ZTE Grand Memo all set to go live in MWC 2013.
However, ZTE has already cleared its intensions to release a phone using Mozilla’s Firefox OS this year but hardly any information is known about the phone yet.
LG Optimus G Pro
The Optimus Pro G from South Korean mobile manufacturer LG is one of the smartphones of the Mobile World Congress that cannot be missed. LG has opted to show much of their artillery in Barcelona, unlike Samsung, HTC or Apple, which are known for conducting their own private events for such releases.
LG Optimus G Pro certainly complicates the choice of those who are thinking to buy a phablet because with a 5.5-inch screen, 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor and 13 megapixel camera, it will not disappoint anyone. Another direct competitor with the Samsung Galaxy Note II.
Nokia Lumia 520 and Lumia 720
The companies which tend to do special events and those which come to compete in Barcelona have already shown their cards in varying degrees. However, the Finnish giant Nokia has preferred to remain silent. Nokia is expected to show some midrange phones like Lumia 520 and Lumia 720, both following the trend of running Windows Phone 8.
Although, there have been several rumors that Nokia could present a top-end Lumia known as 1000, in addition to the latest technology which would incorporate a 42 megapixel Pure View camera, a real hit that we all expect to happen.
During a special event on February 19th, Taiwanese company HTC unveiled the company’s new flagship Android smartphone, HTC One. HTC One features a 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 display of 1080p resolution with 469ppi. The smartphone is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset utilizing a quad-core 1.7GHz Krait 300 processor, Adreno 320 graphics and 2GB of RAM.
No doubt, the HTC One will be among the Mobile World Congress smartphones that will attract many eyes.
The mobile market seems as lively and energetic as mobile technology. The Mobile World Congress will be a hotbed of ideas, and we can expect many new features that will make the competition tighter for the best device.
