With MWC 2015 mere hours away everybody is naturally excited about the impending releases and interesting mobile innovations. This has been the general vibe for the last month or so, but things have really been getting heated during the last week.
All eyes are still on industry giants and their eagerly-anticipated flagship devices. This explains why the news section has been overflowing with various leaks and speculations about the Samsung Galaxy S6, its edged variant – Galaxy S6 Edge as well as the HTC One (M9). The former has been discussed so vigorously that Samsung decided to hop on the rumor train and fuel speculations even further by issuing a few over the top “official rumors” about the phone. Users in the US can also rejoice as AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint are already teasing the new devices they are going to offer.
Naturally HTC’s One (M9) has also been getting a lot of attention. After an avalanche of cases and renders we finally saw precise images, as well as a few official teaser videos for the upcoming device. And while we are on the MWC topic, Sony still has a lot to show, despite the more-than-likely absence of the Xperia Z4. If rumors are true the Japanese manufacturer will bring a new midrange phone – the Xperia M4, as well as a tablet – Z4 Tablet to the Barcelona venue. Acer will also be present with what it says are “phones and a new wearable”, but nothing more is known yet.
