New smartphones are being released all the time, so make sure you don’t miss out on the latest information on launch dates, tech specs and expert opinions.
Mobile World Congress is one of the biggest technology conferences, hosted annually in Barcelona. It’s the stage for the most important mobile announcements of the year, and we’re expecting some big news for 2017.
Huawei has an event scheduled at Mobile World Congress on 26 February. And following a recent YouTube video – published by Huawei Mobile – we’ve got confirmation on the announcement of the P10.
Details are thin on the ground at the moment, but Huawei is peddling the same #OO hashtag it used at last year’s P9 launch, suggesting we could see the return of the dual lenses.
We’ve looked around the web to find out more…
“Spec rumours include a 5.5-inch curved QHD screen, a metal body, a fingerprint scanner and a dual-lens camera, plus potentially 6GB of RAM, 256GB of storage and an octa-core Kirin 960 chipset.” TechRadar
“The P10 may look similar to the P9, with a metal body, and a glass or other material section housing the camera lenses on the back.” Digital Trends
“The Leica-branded dual-camera setup is one of the best features of the P9 and the P9 Plus. Therefore, it is expected that the upcoming P10 series will also come with two camera sensors on the back.” Android Authority
Following an official event invite from LG, suspicions have been confirmed that there’ll be an LG G6 flagship smartphone announced at Mobile World Congress.
Not much is known about the new smartphone just yet, but we’re expecting a lot from the display, owing to LG’s tagline: “Big screen that fits”.
This is what the world’s biggest tech sites are predicting…
“It’s pretty much a given that the star of LG’s show will be the new G6 flagship smartphone which has been leaked recently. If the information is correct, it seems LG is ditching the modular design of the LG G5 and opting for a sleek design with tiny bezels.” Pocket-lint
“There aren't too many mysteries surrounding the LG G6's screen, as LG itself has said that the company's next smartphone (believed to be the G6) will have a 5.7-inch QHD LCD display. They add that it has an 18:9 aspect ratio, so it's longer than most screens, which makes it ideal for split-screen apps.” TechRadar
“LG will ditch the G5's modular form and its ‘friends’ in exchange for a sleeker, more ‘usable’ look, according to current rumours.” PCMag.com
“Expect to see a return of both standard and wide-angle lenses, but likely with improvements – perhaps a higher megapixel count or greater optical zoom.” TechRadar
“It's likely that the G6 will not have a removable battery. LG's flagships usually have a swappable battery, and it's often cited by users as their favourite feature. However, sealing off the battery with a unibody design would help with water resistance.” CNET
Motorola, now operated by Lenovo, has sent out a ‘save the date’ card for 26 February at Mobile World Congress. The press invite shows an illustration of a generic-looking phone, casting a shadow of Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia, so it’s still uncertain what the compny will be revealing.
We’ve rounded up some rumours from the web’s biggest tech sites to get some ideas…
“Lenovo's mid-range Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus smartphones are expected to launch later this month at the company's February 26 event at MWC 2017 in Barcelona.” TechRadar
“We’ve had a pretty good look at the phones themselves. They look similar to each other and have the iconic Moto look around back in what appears to be aluminium. Up front, they look the same as each other (outside of size).” Android Central
“The G5 Plus will have a larger 5.2-inch display, while the G5 will have a 5-inch screen. Both, however, are said to feature Snapdragon octa-core processors and Android 7.0 Nougat.” CNET
“Both (the G5 and G5 Plus) have the same 2GB of RAM but differ in storage, with 32 and 64GB respectively. This time around, the Moto G5 does have a fingerprint scanner, unlike the Moto G4.” Slashgear
“The G5 Plus will feature a 12-megapixel rear camera with dual autofocus pixels, while the G5 will have a 13-megapixel phase-detect autofocus sensor. Both models will sport 5-megapixel, front-facing selfie cams.” VentureBeat
