    Yesterday was a hugely busy one for new mobile hardware, led off by HTC and Samsung's announcements of the One M9, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge. And while those gave us plenty to pay attention to, we hadn't even really gotten MWC fully started yet - that would wait for today. And the first official day of Mobile World ...

    With the Xperia Z4 Tablet, Sony is setting out to show that it knows how to deliver some premium hardware. At just 6.1mm thick, it can go head-to-head with the Apple iPad Air 2 in the race for super-thin tablets – and it does so while delivering a screen that's both larger and of much higher resolution. Maybe more ...

    When Lenovo's Vibe Shot first turned up in leaks, we weren't quite sure what to make of it. It was only a few weeks back when the handset was positively identified as the model it is, and Lenovo's formal launch of the smartphone didn't come until today at MWC. But now that it's here we can finally appreciate all the ...

    Smartphone progress follows a general trickle-down effect: what was once top-shelf hardware finds itself popping up on more affordable devices as newer, higher-specced components emerge to outfit future flagships. But this year at MWC Sony doesn't have a new flagship model, and the new smartphone it's brought to show ...

    There’s a thing that happens at mobile trade shows ... we'll call it "time evaporation." Like Bloc Party, you make plans for good times, only to get bogged down and distracted – by videos. And articles. And all the work involved in bringing you all the news that’s fit to leave the beautiful bastion of Barcelona ...

    At MWC this year, if you're introducing a new smartwatch, it had better be one with a circular screen. LG liked that idea so much, it brought along two such models. Huawei wasn't about to be left out on this trend, either, and in addition to some new fitness tracker bands, launched a full-fledged smartwatch, the Huawei ...

    Sony may get a little flack for not being ready with a new Z-series flagship smartphone at MWC this year, but it's not like the manufacturer's just been sitting around twiddling its thumbs, either. Instead, it's come to the conference with some very much flagship-caliber hardware – just not in a pocket-sized variety. ...

    The last few weeks have been full of rumors of ambitious plans from Google: ideas we may have heard before, but picking up new layers of support, or looking to re-invent old systems with the intent of breathing new life into them. Google I/O may still be a couple months away, but today at MWC Android head Sundar Pichai ...

    A few weeks back, it was anyone's guess if Sony was actually going to bring new phones to MWC 2015. Rumors of the Xperia Z4 kept drifting further and further into the future, and our MWC attention instead started turning towards Sony's tablet lineup. And with Sony launching phones like the Xperia E4 and E4g in the weeks ...

    MWC is always a great place to see the latest mobile devices, from smartwatches, to phones, to tablets and beyond. And while complete, commercial products are some of the easiest to get excited about, the expo also manages to bring us news about hot new components – the parts that aren't ready to start showing up in ...

    Cyanogen has a history of teaming up with underdog smartphone manufacturers, it seems (at least from our view from the United States). After all, it is the company that was the launch partner for the OnePlus One's software, and now Cyanogen is teaming up with Alcatel Onetouch for a new device here. The Alcatel Onetouch ...

    Jolla's tablet efforts got started back in November, as the company kicked-off the crowdfunding campaign for the first Sailfish OS tablet. The Jolla Tablet popped back on our radar in January as a new storage option was added to that effort. And while we'd heard plenty about both this hardware and Jolla's plans for a ...

    Samsung’s second-gen Edge design is here, with yesterday's launch of the Galaxy S6 Edge. If the Note Edge was testing the waters, the Galaxy S6 Edge is Samsung's way of jumping right in, cannonball-style. And while these are both flagship devices with over-the-edge displays, they're quite different in how they go ...

    Coming into MWC we didn't exactly have high expectations for what sort of new Windows Phone hardware it might bring us, resigned to getting a largely Android spread. But there was still hope, and even without rumors of a big, sexy flagship, it started to look like Microsoft might still have some new handsets for us. ...

    One tablet that's been on our radar but relatively elusive for quite some time now has been the Nokia N1. The device was launched to mixed reception months ago by the remnants of Nokia (the parts of the company that didn't go to the Microsoft Devices and Services group during the buyout), with some loving the sheer ...

    Microsoft in Barcelona has just taken the wraps off of the Lumia 640 and 640 XL at Mobile World Congress, mid-range smartphones that Microsoft means to "build on the success [the company has had] in the affordable space," available for purchase in April. The regular 640 features Windows Phone 8.1, as well as a 2,500 ...

    The wait for a Windows flagship smartphone has been long and dire. Just as rumors came up, they simmered down just as quickly, and we haven't heard much about when we'd be seeing the next flagship from Redmond. There's an event today that the company is hosting for MWC, which we remain hopeful about though, so join us ...

After yesterday's massive unveils of the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6, other players are ready to keep the news flowing throughout the trade show. Two new smartphones have just been announced by the owner of Motorola (Lenovo, of course), one of them the Lenovo ...

    Around these parts (especially around this MWC timeframe), we're very used to seeing traditional smartphones launch, meaning the main point of the device is communication. But every so often, a device manufacturer decides to take a different approach in the creation of a phone, and what results usually turns into ...

    We weren't expecting much from Sony on the smartphone front from MWC 2015 – given that the Xperia Z4 doesn't look to be launching here, and that's pretty much all that's been on our immediate radar as of late – but the company has gone ahead and surprised us a bit with the unveiling of the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua ...

    The announcements out of MWC in Barcelona are reaching a nonsensical level at this point, with HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6 out of the way now, and Microsoft set to make its big reveal in just about an hour. Sony has taken this moment of a lull of sorts to reveal two new devices, one of them being its next flagship ...

    Did you know that MWC doesn't technically get started until tomorrow, March 2? If you've been following today's news, that's going to seem like crazy talk to you, but manufacturers just can't wait until Monday to share word of all their new products with you, leading to today's flood of early announcements.

    Is Samsung's new Galaxy S6 an iPhone wannabe? Look at its super-thin design and gracefully curved edges, and it's very easy to see it as taking a huge page from Apple's design playbook. But dismissing it as a copycat would be woefully unfair, as Samsung has done a ton with the GS6 to help distinguish it not just from ...

    Samsung may have surprised you today by unveiling not one, but two smartphones as its flagships for the year. The very subtle differences in design (as opposed to the differences between the Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge) have led many to believe that the two are, in essence, the exact same smartphone, just with slightly ...
