Sony, Alcatel, HTC, Fujitsu Display Smartphones at MWC
Sony Xperia Z
This Android phone boasts a 5-inch full-high-definition 1080p Reality Display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, a 13-megapixel fast-capture camera and 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) capabilities.
Rounded Edges, Smooth Surface
On the design side, the Xperia Z features rounded edges and smooth reflective surfaces on all sides, tempered glass and anti-shatter film on the front and back, and high levels of dust and water resistance.
Improved Battery Performance
The Xperia Z also includes a "stamina mode" for the battery that can improve the standby time by four times or more by automatically shutting down battery-draining apps whenever the screen is off.
This LTE-capable handset sports a 1.7GHz quad-core processor and a stunning 16.3-megapixel camera behind a 5-inch full-HD display.
The device is an Android Jelly Bean–running smartphone with a 4.7-inch full-HD display, a new version of the HTC Sense user interface and BlinkFeed, a home screen that's a constantly updating media stream.
HTC has long done a good job with its cameras, but the company has improved on this one even more, not playing the game of talking about megapixel numbers but focusing on megapixel size.
Alcatel OneTouch Star
The Star runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, sports a 4-inch active-matrix organic LED (AMOLED) screen and offers a 1GHz dual-core processor.
Alcatel OneTouch Idol Ultra
One of four new Alcatel smartphones shown at MWC, this model sports an HD 720p display and 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Alcatel OneTouch Scribe HD
The new Scribe range mimics Samsung's Note handsets with a big 5-inch screen and a removable pen with which users can write on the screen.
Available in a variety of eye-catching colors, the OneTouch Scribe HD boasts an 8-megapixel camera with geo-tagging, touch focus, and face and smile detection.
