Sony’s been showing off its latest devices at Mobile World Congress for years, and that’s not going to change when this year’s event kicks off on March 2. But whether the Japanese company will have new devices to show off at its booth is looking increasingly unlikely.

While recent reports have suggested Sony is preparing to ditch its ailing smartphone division, it seems it won’t give it up without a fight. In a last ditch effort to turn it around, the Japanese company is set to shed another 1,000 workers by March 2016.

Wave goodbye to your removable batteries, Galaxy S fans, because it looks like Samsung could be ditching them for this year’s flagship. Sources say that the upcoming Galaxy S6 will have a high-end glass back panel similar to that of earlier iPhones or Sony’s Xperia Z devices, and you won’t be able to pull it off yourself.

Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S6 may be about a month away from its official unveiling, but the South Korean company is already showing it off at CES 2015 in Las Vegas, it has confirmed. Don’t expect to see any early glimpses of the handset, however, because only “select partners” get to look at it.

If you’ve got a device from Sony’s newest Xperia Z3 family, your wait for an Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade is almost over. Sony has confirmed it will be bringing Google’s latest software to the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, and the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact starting next month.
