Mobile World Congress 2016 - what to expect

Well just as you expected the MWC is back this year with the largest mobile trade show. Giving a platform to some of the biggest handsets launches from a couple of years. It's back to give you amazing handsets and much more at the end of February.

This year, we are expecting some new and amazing smartphones at this show organized by GSMA. The show will be having all those handsets we have been anticipating for a while. We won't be spoiling the show for you as it's full of surprises but here are a few things that we expect to see in the MWC this year.

BlackBerry

BlackBerry didn't give us a lot at the CES 2016, but us some hints that we should anticipate some Android devices to be launched instead of BB 10. After the amazing BlackBerry Priv, we can say that it’s a smart move by the company.

Currently, the Stories suggest that we will be seeing a new touch and type candybar headset named as BlackBerry Vienna. With the looks, it seems like a budget handset that includes a keyboard. It seems like this MCW will be important for the blackberry company as there are rumors which show that the company may move the passport over to the android.

HTC

Though previous year, the one M9 launch wasn’t a great hit for the company but it changed when they launched their one A9. With its success, we are looking forward to seeing the HTC One M10/Perfume.

Other than this, there are some rumors about a Desire T7, a mid-range phablet. Talks also direct that the company possibly have pushed the handset to April so it may only be Vive and UA HealthBox

Huawei

Huawei is becoming a great name in the industry these days with amazing and strong handsets launched the previous year. There are rumors that we will be seeing a Huawei P9 handset but it will be a tough competition for the company this year as there are talks that the next handset is already in preparation.

Some are saying that the company may not be launching this set instead will go with a dual-boot notebook.

Lenovo

Most likely it is assumed that Lenovo will be pushing the Vibe smartphone brand in this MWC this year. Let’s see what the company will be bringing this year.

LG

LG confirmed that they will be launching their new the LG G5 this year in the trade show. With a lot of assumptions about the handset, its will be great watching what LG has to offer to its users. We also got news that the company may be launching two devices this year at MWC

Samsung

Well for Samsung galaxy users will be getting to see the next handset this year. The event for the press is scheduled on 21 this month which is same as LG if you want to know. A new sport-focused wearable whose design is based on the Gear S2 smartwatch. There are also talks about a 360-degree camera to capture your VR content. It seems they have a lot to offer this year for the users.

Sony Mobile at MWC 2016

So presume that we will be seeing Sony skip the smartphones and rather focus on wearable this year at MWC. Rumors about an update in tablets are also circulating. Some are expecting Xperia Z6 to be present this year in the event. Let’s hope for better!!

Summary

MWC 2016 will be from 22-25 February 2016 so better mark the calendar for 21st this month as this is when the press launches will take place. We will give a full review about the event but till then let’s hope for the best.
