Coming to MWC: New flagship models and the most interesting
According to "industry watchers," a number of smartphone manufacturers will be displaying flagship models during MWC next week. Perhaps the model that most are interested in seeing is the Samsung Galaxy S5. The phone is expected to feature a 5.2 inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. Depending on the model, there will be either a powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, or an octa-core Exynos chip under the hood. Samsung is also expected to introduce its first Tizen powered handset, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 tablets.

The Sony D6503 Sirius, aka the Sony Xperia Z2, will also show off a 5.2 inch screen with 1440 x 2560 resolution. The unit is said to be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, and feature a 20.7MP rear-facing shooter. HTC is expected to show off its new found focus on its low to mid range models with its HTC Desire line. We most likely will not see the sequel to the HTC One, the HTC M8 aka HTC One 2 until next month.

Korean manufacturer LG will have two models of interest. The recently announced LG G Pro 2 is a 5.9 inch model with a 1080 x 1920 resolution screen, powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. A 13MP camera graces the back. The LG G2 mini will also be sharing the spotlight in Barcelona, carrying a 4.7 inch display with a 720 x 1280 resolution.

We should also see some new models from Chinese manufacturers like Oppo, ZTE, Lenovo, TCL and Huawei. In light of Lenovo's recent acquisition of Motorola from Google, we expect executives from the company to explain its future plans for the brand.

Some interesting stuff here. I am curious what the 2 different chipsets in the GS5 will mean as far as performance, features, or maybe just price. Also, the LG Pro 2 is interesting. I am impressed by LG's thinking outside the box lately. Be interesting what they offer.

Unless I miss my guess, there will be no new WP devices previewed unless Samsung brings their rumored WP 8 out to show off. But, with Microsofts purchase of Nokia still pending for at least another month (still can't believe that is happening sometimes even as I type or say it) and WP 8.1 in the finishing stages, I think April's event will be the next hope to see pending WP's.
