IFA 2013: What to expect
Tomorrow, Berlin will be transformed into the most awesome place on the globe. Or at least that's how hardcore tech enthusiasts will surely look at it. That's because the annual Internationale Funkausstellung event, or IFA, as we call it with a hint of excitement in our voice, will take place in the German capital. 

It is an event where both major and not-so-major electronics manufacturers show off their latest and greatest gadgets. And we're not talking only about washing machines and digital alarm clocks. At IFA, there is no shortage of mobile devices on display, including smartphones and tablets of all shapes and sizes. In fact, many companies choose to unveil their newest products during the expo, which is why the tech media is keeping a close eye on the event. 

But what smartphones and tablets might we see during IFA 2013? Well, that's a tricky question as not a whole lot is known until the very beginning of the event. Nevertheless, we can make some predictions based on all the evidence and leaks that have piled up so far.  

We're already in Berlin getting ready for a huge day tomorrow. Samsung is expected to unveil its Galaxy Note III, and Sony will bring the Xperia Z1 aka Honami. And that's just the beginning - take a look at all the new devices we expect to see right below, and stay tuned!

Nokia Lumia 1520 ?

HTC One MAX ?

Sony Xperia Z Ultra ?

they all have the same processor (S800) but the Lumia will take advantage over them cause of buttery smooth windows phone

Dont think so... There wont be any notable difference. May be WP UI is fast & fluid on dual core processor but it needs almost same amount of raw power as for the android needed when it comes to running HD games/apps.
And android(HTC one max,Z ultra) is also smooth on S800.

but remember Touch Wiz can ruin that smoothness

also i;d like to say that HD Games on the Lumia 920 run faster/smoother than Xperia Z with no frame drops but the Xperia Z has some frame drops

you see , the Xperia Z has a S4 PRO Quad core while the Lumia 920 has S4 Dual Core

I heard a lot of games lag on Lumia 920,some of my friends own 920. And I find out graphics on (some games) games are pretty low compared to iOS &android versions.when it comes to games gpu plays big part. When it have more pixel to process it needs more raw power.

It's because of the resolution. Z and almost all of androids today has Full HD screen. It'll be a fair comparison if Nokia also has 1080p screens.
