What can we expect from MWC this year? The Mobile World Congress is typically associated with mobile phones, but during the time, people have seen there a wide variety of gadgets, from the common phones, tablets and processors, to health and fitness trackers, portable cameras, cortile reality devices and home-automated hubs.
This time, fans and experts alike are anticipating great combination of all those groups and some excitement in between. Acer might bring an amazing show at MWC next week. According to some sources, the company may get into the new VR industry with its proprietary platform, placing it against the Facebook Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Samsung’s Gear headset.
Alcatel’s tech strategies have been released by various leakers over these months. The organization is getting ready to release its Idol 4 model as the main smart phone of its leading device series. The upcoming Pop 4 smart phone will be destined for the mid-range segment, while Pixi 4 will compete in the entry-level category.
Alcatel will also offer a number of Pop and Pixi-labeled Windows and Android tablets, with dimensions varying from 6” to 10”. Blackberry still experienced some problems, despite expectations of resurging with its Android-powered Priv slider.
However, the organization has not given up and according to its reps, people may notice another Android-based product, of course with an actual key-board, code named “Vienna”. This will not be have sliding parts too, since leaked images show a conventional QWERTY key-board below the screen.
Caterpillar has hopped on the MWC train and formally presented its CAT S60 phone, a very rugged device with a thermal imagining digicam built-in. Fairphone is not providing any new products but it might have a modular device presented at the show.
The phone is original because customers can take apart the device and quickly change its components. Currently, the phone is just being marketed and delivered to European countries. Gionee is not a famous company in the United States, but this firm is among China’s biggest cell phone producers.
The company is said to release its Elife S8 model, a gadget mainly used for photos and with pressure-sensitive screen. HTC has some catching up to do with sales dropping and a shrinking business. The Taiwanese producer wants to get back its top place in the smart phone market with the One M10.
Interestingly, there are some signs that the company will not introduce the M10 model at MWC, but instead it will release it in Apr, when its Vive VR headset is anticipated to be delivered as well. A higher focus on HTC Vive along with relevant VR accessories is plausible, especially since it has a new collaboration with Valve.
Huawei’s popularity is constantly increasing since the release of its Honor 5x and Nexus 6P. At MWC, the Chinese giant has planned a media occasion where it is likely to present Matebook, a MS Surface-style hybrid with a removable keyboard and pen. Obviously, this will come as with dual-boot capabilities for both Windows and Android operating systems.
