Here’s what we are expecting at the event
Nokia is expected to showcase as
many as six new devices at the Mobile World Congress 2014. From what we have
heard from the rumours, there will be a new flagship smartphone in the form of
Nokia Lumia 1820 which is speculated to be a 5.2 device powered by Snapdragon
805 processor and 3,400mAh battery.
Another device that has already become
the talk of the town is the Nokia X. It is said to be a budget Android device.
The Korean smartphone is likely
to announce its new flagship smartphone
- Samsung Galaxy S5. Also as per news reports Samsung might end up
showing not one but two smartwatches at MWC 2014. It is also expected that
these smartwatches might run on Tizen and not Android.
Along with it, Samsung is also believed
to unveil its first Tizen smartphone at the MWC 2014.
Some of the earlier reports had
suggested that Samsung will be launching Galaxy Grand Neo at MWC, but the same has
already been showcased at the Samsung Forum.
On the tablet front, we can look
forward to the 13.3-inch large slate with Android and Windows dual-boot
abilities at this event.
Facebook may not announce
something new at the event but the fact that Mark Zuckerberg is delivering a
keynote at MWC 2014, makes us feel really excited. We are looking forward to
what he will have to share and hope you too want to hear more from this social
LG is expected to showcase its G Pro 2 at the event. The
company has also posted a teaser image on its Facebook page, which appears to
be that of LG G2 mini. We will not be surprised if it is indeed launched at
this event. It is also expected that its recently launched L III smartphone
will be displayed at the MWC 2014.
The MWC 2014 is a make or break affair for this Taiwanese
maker. The company is expected to show its new flagship smartphone, which has
been codenamed M8. A year ago, HTC did manage to make a big splash at the MWC
2013 with the launch of HTC One and it will be interesting to see if it manages
to do the same this year too.
Sony is also expected to unveil a
bunch of devices at the MWC 2014. From whatever we have heard so far, we are

there will also be a smartphone which has been codenamed Sirius (or the Sony
Xperia Z2) going live at this event.
The Japanese smartphone maker is
also believed to be working on a Windows Phone 8 handset but at this point we
are not clear if we will get to see it at this event or will be made to wait a
wee bit longer for the same.
