As MWC 2016 inches ever closer, it seems that our news section is overrun by rumors and not much else. After witnessing a sea of specs leaks and rumors about the Galaxy S7 line in the past few weeks, now we are finally starting to catch glimpses of the device as well, or at least parts of it.
Apple has also been popping up frequently in the news section.Cupertino is set to unveil a brand new generation of iPhones this year – the iPhone 7, which is definitely more exciting that an "S" upgrade. But there is also another reason why the US giant has caught fan attention so early in the year, prior to its typical fall announcement session. Everything seems to suggest that 2016 will see the resurrection of the 4-ich iPhone form factor. Information on the matter is still scarce at best, but the very prospect seems to have everybody excited.
LG and HTC also appear to be hard at work on their next flagship offer. The LG G5 is shaping up to be quite interesting and a definite departure from the OEM's signature design and approach for the past few flagship iterations.
HTC only recently appeared back on the radar with a fresh batch of flagship rumors and despite the tardiness, it is hopefully still in the game. An upgrade to its signature "M" series is apparently on the way, but this time it might come with an entirely new look, one borrowed largely from the company's recent One A9 model.
Lastly, we take a look towards Asia, where Xiaomi has been teasing its own crown jewel for some time now. The Xiaomi Mi 5 definitely shouldn't be underestimated, as it could, very well play a key role in shaping the flagship scene this year.
Originating from a manufacturing facility, the photos confirm that the smartphone's production is well under way.
This is the AT&T version, while the other result comes from a Canadian model.
It carries a price tag of RMB 1,099 in China (around $167).
Sources say it will be powered by the A8 chip and come with the 8MP/1.2MP camera combo.
Previous rumors had suggested that the flagship will arrive in two different versions.
The next small smartphone from Apple has reportedly been captured next to an iPhone 5.
A KGI analyst believes that a version of the iPhone 7 Plus will be offered with a dual iSight camera setup.
The rest of the specs remain unchanged, including the 256GB of internal storage and 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM.
Going on sale on Amazon starting tomorrow.
Farewell to the rear-mounted volume controls, alas.
The comparisons with an iPhone 6 or an HTC One A9 are unavoidable.
The handset is apparently still in development and heading to AT&T, but will most likely miss MWC 2016.
A pretty complete list of the most important hardware innards for the upcoming phone has seen the light of day.
The program will allow you to upgrade your Samsung device every year.
"All you ever imagined, and more."
The device is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek MT6735P SoC with quad-core CPU and Mali 720 GPU, and sports a 5-inch HD IPS display.
Late last month, too, a Galaxy S5 unit received the update.
The screenshot in question was shared by the Chinese company's chairman Lei Jun.
The update majorly includes bug fixes as well as some improvements and enhancements.
The upgraded version will offer a bigger display, more RAM and is planned for this April.
The unit appears to prove many of the rumors circulating about the flagship, including the dual rear-camera setup.
This comes a month after the Chinese company announced the Marathon M5 lite.
Most expensive Android phone available on the market.
From the looks of things, the handset will keep to the current naming convention and be called the iPhone 6c.
