Another wearable device revealed as well
Samsung has taken advantage of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to announce its new Galaxy S5 smartphone.
The new handset runs Android with a 5.1-inch full HD screen and a 2.5GHz quad-core processor.
Sony Mobile has started Mobile World Congress with two new smartphones and a new tablet.
The Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone runs Android on a 2.3GHz Qualcomm processor. There’s a 20.7 megapixel camera sensor and 4K video recording, plus a 5.2-inch full HD display. In addition, the handset - just 8.2mm deep - incorporates digital noise reduction and is waterproof to IP58.
Huawei has revealed five new products in advance of Mobile World Congress 2014, which opens in Barcelona tomorrow.
Rumours of a ‘smartwatch’ were rewarded with the appearance of the Huawei TalkBand. This has the form factor of a flexible fitness tracker but also incorporates a removable Bluetooth headset with a built-in OLED display.
LG Electronics has announced the LG G Pro 2 smartphone today.
It’s a successor to the LG G Pro, which was revealed in February last year. South Korea is currently the only market confirmed for the LG G Pro 2, although wider availability is expected to be announced during or after Mobile World Congress.
