What to expect at MWC 2012
| by Karan Shah
The Mobile World Congress 2012 is just around the corner. Starting 27th February, the most popular smartphone manufacturers in the world, barring Apple, will showcase their wares for the current year. In the past few days, we’ve already got some inside scoop from a few of the smartphone manufacturers with leaks and announcements, but here’s what will most probably (unless there are some sweet surprises) be fighting for the spotlight at MWC 2012.
LG’s answer to the Galaxy Note? Or just another oversized Android device? We’re betting on the former when the handset will be showcased at LG’s stall at the MWC. This one’s raking it up in the spec department as well.The Vu comes with a 5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, and a 1.5GHz dual core processor. There’s 32 gigs of internal memory and LTE, HDMI, DLNA and Wi-Fi Direct. The Optimus Vu comes with 1GB of RAM and has a 2080 mAh battery under the hood. This monster of a phone has an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 1.3 megapixel front camera. With these specs, LG are definitely banking on the Vu to take an ample share of the spotlight at MWC.
The next large smartphone is announced
Besides this phone, they’re also going to unveil their 3D Cube, L range phones and the 3D Max. Too little too late? Or game changing phones? It’s just a matter of time before the curtains on LG's new smartphones are drawn.
This one seems to be inspired by the Matrix series, but it’s got a couple of name changes. So, if you don’t see the HTC Edge or the Endeavour, don’t fret, they’re all the same device and they’ve been renamed the One X. We don’t know much about this device, in terms of specs, but it will supposedly have a 3.7-inch display and a 5 megapixel rear camera that can capture videos at 720p. It will be powered by a 1GHz processor and have 1 gigs of RAM. On the software side, the phone is expected to come with Ice Cream Sandwich on board.

Besides this, we might also get to see the HTC Ville, which may be rebranded to the One S and the HTC One XL as well. HTC have been keeping their cards close to their chest so far, but we can pretty much expect that they’re launching not one, not two but three to four swanky new handsets.
This one exists because of this mini jigsaw puzzle we had in our hands recently. Tango is coming, with reduced RAM and other spec requirements. The Lumia 610 has us going back in the numerical order, with the Lumia 710, the Lumia 800 and the Lumia 900. The Lumia 610 is going to be their latest WP7 phone keeping in mind the budget conscious.

Nokia is evenly planning their strategy with one competing smartphone at different price ranges. The Lumia 710 is already priced close to the 15K mark so it’ll be interesting to see where the Lumia 610 fits in the price range. A sub 10K price with some competitive specs would definitely make it one potential budget smartphone to watch out. But again, with camera megapixel count being reduced to 3 MP and a few other limitations with Tango, Nokia might be treading a dangerous route ahead that could go either ways.
