While the IFA 2015 expo officially starts today, we have (nudge, wink) already covered and previewed the handsets and tablets that were announced at the pre-expo events by Sony, Samsung, Huawei, Lenovo, ZTE, Asus, Acer and the rest.
To those who thought this IFA expo would be boring without the traditional strong appearance of Samsung's Galaxy Note line (Note5 got announced in mid-August), we have one phrase to say - 4K. Sony wowed us with the first phone that carries a true 4K panel with 800+ ppi pixel density, but the fun didn't stop here, as the new Xperia Z5
, Z5 Compact
and Z5 Premium
all carry an exclusive 23 MP Exmor RS camera sensor with the biggest resolution on an Android device. Add to that a unique fingerprint scanner embedded in the lock key, as well as the traditional waterproof chassis and stereo speakers, and the IFA is worth it for the new Xperias alone.
Huawei was another trailblazer at the expo, outing the Mate S
- a phone with Force Touch
display, beautiful metal chassis, and decked-out specs sheet. Samsung didn't have phones to announce, but it outed an inventive Gear S 2
smartwatch, with a unique rotating bezel for navigation. Lenovo dressed up its signature P-series phones with huge batteries. like the new Vibe P1
, in glass and metal, and outed the first phone with two selfie cameras - the Vibe S1
. Asus unleashed some crazy versions of its popular Zenfone line, like a selfie-oriented one, or a ZenFone with optical zoom.
In any case, there is plenty to see here at the IFA 2015 expo, but there can only be one victor when it comes to the amount of innovation infused in their new products. This is why we wanted to ask you which do you think was the most innovative company at IFA 2015 until this point? Take your pick in the poll and tell us why below.
