ProClip and Brodit Attend Mobile World Congress 2015
The Mobile World Congress is is the world’s largest annual gathering for the mobile and mobile-related industries. The event was first launched in 1987 and is organized by the Groupe Speciale Mobile Association (GSMA). This year, more than 70,000 people are expected to attend the event in Barcelona, Spain. Here’s a look at the hottest happenings on the 2015 MWC agenda:
Samsung gets ready to reveal its best flagship smartphone to date. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will (finally!) be revealed at a press event Sunday, March 1, at 12:00 pm (EST). Of the two phones, the S6 Edge is expected to feature a curved screen – however function of the screen will be slightly different that that of the Note Edge, which was released last year. The phones are also expected to feature metal bodies and glass backs, as well as a new Exynos 7 Octa processor – a change from the previously used Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
HTC One M9
HTC is also prepping to release their latest version of the HTC One – the M9. The M9 may not be as cutting edge as the S6, but fans of the M8 are still excited for this year’s model. After a handful of leaks, a video of the device has recently emerged on the the internets – leaving not much to the imagination of what the M9 will look like.
LG steps into the smartwatch game by releasing its G Watch Urbane LTE earlier this week – ahead of the Apple Watch, which is expected to debut at a press conference on March 9. The LG G Watch Urbane showcases serious style and runs on its own LG Wearable Platform operating system – instead of Android. The Urbane is also the first smartwatch able to connect to 4G wireless networks. It is still unclear as to how users will respond and work smartwatches into their lifestyle – only time will tell if this competitive device will mark a secure spot in the marketplace.
5G Mobile Coverage
5G network connectivity is still years off, with no official standards in place. However, it will be a hot topic at the Mobile World Conference with brands like LG and Samsung stepping up to the plate. We are excited to see how this conversation transpires on the Internet of Things, as the industry gets closer to providing an accessible, technology-enhanced worldview.
