Mobile World Congress 2014 kicks off on Monday, February 24, and Cult of Android will be live from Barcelona. In addition to regular posts covering all of the announcements, we’ll also be running a live blog throughout the event that will bring you the latest from the show floor.
So not only will you get breaking news and hands-on coverage of the latest products, but also an insight into what it’s really like to attend MWC. Here are some of the things we’re expecting.
While the Galaxy S5 will be the star of the show during Samsung’s Unpacked 5 event in Barcelona on Monday, we could see a slew of different devices across several product categories — one of which could be a brand new health tracker called the “Galaxy Gear Fit,” according to a new report.
Samsung’s much-anticipated Unpacked 5 event is just a couple of days away now, and just to make sure you’re excited, the South Korean company today published a new video that teases “The Next Galaxy.” The 36-second clip doesn’t give much away, but it does contain a whole bunch words associated with the new device.
Sony has reportedly teamed up with Garmin to develop a new navigation app for the SmartWatch 2, and it’s expected to get its unveiling at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week. The app will provide users with turn-by-turn directions on their wrist, negating the need to walk around with their smartphone out.
LG has today announced the new G2 mini, a slightly smaller version of its flagship G2 that is scheduled to get its official launch at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week. The handset sports a 4.7-inch qHD display — that’s half an inch smaller than the original G2’s — coupled with midrange specifications.
If you’re itching to see Nokia unveil its first Android-powered smartphone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week, then you’ll be pleased to know you can watch the entire thing live from the comfort of your own home. The Finnish firm has today confirmed that it will be live-streaming the announcement via the Nokia website.
A sample image taken with Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S5 all but confirms that the new handset will feature a 16-megapixel real-facing camera. The otherwise boring photograph was taken with a “Samsung-SM-G900A,” according to its accompanying EXIF data, and it boasts a 5312×2988 resolution.
The upcoming Sony Xperia Z2 has appeared for the second time in an early hands-on video. While the initial two-minute clip focused on the handset’s new user interface, this 12-minute extensive preview showcases other software features as well as its physical design, leaving little uncovered ahead of the handset’s unveiling.
We’ve been expecting a price tag and launch date for the Geeksphone Revolution for a while now, and today we finally got them. The world’s first dual-booting handset, which runs both Android and Firefox OS, will go on sale next Thursday, February 20, priced at €289 ($395).
LG has confirmed that it will be unveiling its new G Pro 2 smartphone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. The original 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro made its U.S. debut last May as LG’s answer to large smartphones like the Galaxy Note, and it’s thought the G Pro 2 will be even bigger.
