Mobile World Congress: The Top 10 Smartphone Features to Expect
The Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, is one of the most exciting events of the year for smartphone and tablet lovers. The event has become the go-to place to find out about plans vendors have for the rest of the year, and is heavily attended by Google, Microsoft, Samsung, and other top companies. Conspicuously missing, of course, is Apple, which doesn't like to follow the crowd and holds its own events at different points throughout the year. Still, a host of great products from prominent device makers will be on display at MWC. The vast majority of them will be smartphones. From the low end to flagship models, just about every prominent Android handset maker will be delivering new products. As buyers evaluate the latest models on display, they might notice a significant development. Many devices will come with the same features. While earlier models tended to incorporate unique features, a copycat trend has developed. For that reason, it's not hard to predict many of the features that will be built in the smartphones that will be on display at MWC. Here is a look at some of the most likely components.
The Latest Android Flavors
If recent announcements are our guide, the latest Android flavor from Google, Jelly Bean, will come bundled in many of the devices. In addition, there's talk of the possibility of a new Android distribution making its debut at the show. If that's case, expect any and all of the latest Android flavors to be running on the devices on display.
