New smartphones expected at upcoming conference

Speculation is mounting as to what new smartphones will be unveiled at the Mobile World Conference (MWC) in Barcelona.

Many new devices were revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, but experts are looking to the MWC at the end of February for the latest advancements in technology.

Samsung is not expected to introduce the next iteration of its flagship model, the Galaxy S5 – but, nevertheless, TechAdvisor doesn’t expect the manufacturing giant to turn up empty-handed. It predicts it will return to the Windows Phone 8 market and launch a device known currently as the SM-W750V.

It is also expecting the Galaxy Note Neo to make an appearance, which would be a new addition to its range of phablets. If rumours are to be believed, it could be the first smartphone to use a hexa-core processor.

Nokia are touted to unveil at least two new Lumia phones, including the Lumia 1820 which could have a 5.2-inch screen, 2k resolution and Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.

The Lumia 1525 could potentially be announced too, which – with its rumoured six-inch screen – could become part of the phablet market. It is also expected to boast an impressive camera – potentially between 25 and 30 megapixels.
