What Happens When an Army of Geeks Descends on Barcelona

You’ve probably seen the instantly classic photo of Mark Zuckerberg cheerfully strutting past a crowd blinded by VR headsets at Mobile World Congress during Samsung’s press conference. Well, if you can believe it, that was just one of the many totally absurd moments from this year’s conference. Photographers snapped hundreds of other photos from the mobile tech event, and after a short look back, it’s safe to say this year was stranger than ever before.

Samsung, LG, & others show off new devices at MWC ahead of Apple’s iPhone 5se event

MWC-2016

It’s Mobile World Congress this week in Barcelona, which means most of Apple’s competitors are unveiling their upcoming smartphone lineups that will inevitably compete with Apple’s own 2016 lineup.

But while we usually have to wait until the fall for a new iPhone from Apple, this year is different in that Apple’s event planned for early next month will likely see it unveil the much anticipated iPhone 5se, a rare non-flagship and mid-year iPhone upgrade that will be a low to mid-tier smartphone competitor at pricing that will take over the current iPhone 5s lineup around $450 off contract. 

Among the announcements: Samsung has officially announced its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones — both with a similar premium metal and glass design as previous generations but with upgraded internals — while LG showed off its all-new metal modular design for its new flagship LG G5. Also on show this week is a new smartphone flagship from Acer that offers an impressive 1TB of hybrid local/cloud storage, HTC’s One X9, and a trio of Xperia X smartphones from Sony, two with high camera specs including predictive focus.

Apart from smartphones, VR is a big focus at the show this week with just about every big smartphone maker with a related product coming this year. Samsung is showing its Gear 360 consumer-friendly 360-degree camera coming later this year, Analogix has a new smartphone/tablet chip that allows staggering 4K @ 60fps output via USB-C for VR & big-screen use, and HTC announced a $799 Vive Consumer Edition. This is of course a space we’re watching closely as we hear more chatter about Apple’s possible behind the scenes work on VR products.

And Apple is also planning to introduce its iPad Air 3 next month, which will inevitably go up against the new tablets being announced at MWC this week from its Android competitors.

LG G5 Rumors: Everything We Think We Know

Last year’s LG G4 was fantastic. It kept the best features of Android alive (like having a removable battery and expandable storage), while ushering in a few new things, like a slight curve to the phone’s body, optional leather cases, and a camera that’s actually worth a damn.

Xperia Z4 Tablet: Slick and Slim, With Laptop Aspirations

There's a new tablet in town. It's the new Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet and yeah, it's slimmer, lighter and more powerful than its predecessor, the Xperia Z2 Tablet . But the biggest achievement here is that the attachable keyboard transforms the Z4 into an Android PC, with its own mouse cursor and adapted UI. I tried it, and it's surprisingly plausible.
