New Tech We Expect to See at the Mobile World Congress 2015
The Mobile World Congress or the MWC is one of the biggest extravaganzas for the mobile world. It brings together mobile operators, device manufacturers, technology providers, vendors and content owners from across the world to discuss the future of mobile telephony. This year the conference will be held from 2-5 March in the Spanish city of Barcelona and iGyaan will be reporting right from the ground.
There is a lot of action you can expect from this year’s edition of the MWC. Here it is:
Being the biggest mobile exhibition ground, the MWC attracts some of the biggest releases for the first half of the year. The biggest launches expected from the MWC is the Samsung’s premier Galaxy S6. The Korean electronics giant has promised a reinvention of their device family with this launch, so the expectations are huge with this one.
HTC is also set to unveil its new flagship, the One (M9) at the event that will be a successor to the popular One (M8). This time around it is expected to get a 1440X2560 QHD screen, 3GB of RAM and an Octa-core Snapdragon 810 CPU.
The tech industry bet big on wearables last year, and the biggest brands unveiled their offerings throughout the year. The consumers have seen what these devices have to offer and now it’s time for the second-generation wearables to come forward. The devices have shown promise but at the moment they can be best described as glorified remotes for the smartphone. There have been new features added to these devices like the ability to unlock your car and control connected devices in your home. What the consumers are really demanding from them is a longer battery life, something that doesn’t require charging every single day.
One major trend in electronics market is the focus on interconnected devices. From the announcements at CES 2015 we got an inkling that the companies are proactively pursuing this arena. The smartphone will be at the center of this movement. You can expect to hear about apps and devices that deal with automotive, wearables, and even health.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and FCC chairman Tom Wheeler will be the top Keynote addresses at the conference. Other major speakers include Brian Krzanich; the CEO of Intel, Sanjay Kapoor; Chairman of Micromax Informatics, Steve Mollenkopf; CEO of Qualcomm. There would also be talks given by heads of other prominent tech companies like Vodafone, Wikipedia, Mozilla, Ericsson and more.
If you love tech and smartphones, you should be getting charged up right about now. In just three weeks, some of the long awaited next generation products will show up, and iGyaan will be right on the ground, so you don’t miss them. Keep checking this spot for all the upcoming excitement.
