Mobile World Congress, an annual mobile conference held in Barcelona, Spain, is just around the corner. From February 27 to March 1, attendees will have the chance to view upcoming releases and the latest in phone technology. But for those of you, who can’t make it to Barcelona this year (aka the Mobile Capital of the World), don’t be too alarmed. A few smartphone announcements to be made at the conference have leaked, and if you want a preview of what’s going to be the hottest and newest phones out there, then please read on:
First off, the Nokia 803, a camera-centric Symbian phone that will have one of the largest camera sensors on a mobile phone yet, will be Nokia’s step towards 1080p video. With a 4-inch AMOLED screen, the phone will be featured with an all-touchscreen feature that will rival the Nokia N8, a phone revered for its photo prowess, writes arstechnica.com.
Another phone that will be anticipated at the MWC will be the Windows Phone handsets from Nokia. A low-cost model, the Lumia 610 is speculated to have modest features (256MB of RAM), but pricing will also be accommodating for a smartphone at $157 without a contract.
Arstechnica.com reports that a global version of the Lumia 900 is also set to be unveiled at the conference. The high-end Windows Phone debuted in January as a US-only LTE handset with AT&T. Pricing may range between $100 and $150.
A third Windows Phone, the Lumia 719, is also rumored to make an appearance at the show. Leaked details of the phone confirm that the specs are the same as the Lumia 710 (3.7-inch Clear Black display, 5-megapixel camera).
Different newspaper platforms have predicted that with the reintroduction of Nokia as a smartphone variety and the free Xbox 360 attached to every new two-year contract with the Lumia 800 may give the intended boost in mobile sales. But with the forecast still unclear, the Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona, is said to be a pretty good indicator of how these unreleased models will be received by users.
