Monday opens the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. With the exception of Apple, all the other manufacturers will be there , to show the new mobile phone but also tablets and gadgets "connected" ( smartwatch & co. ) . There will of course also for the telco space , for those who work on 4G networks and next generation . And names like Mark Zuckerberg who held his keynote Monday . A few hours before the event most anticipated by those who deal with products : the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 .
Last year they sold more smartphones than traditional mobile phones. It is the first time that happens and is the culmination of a long chase . I have purchased almost $ 1 billion ( 967.7 million to be exact, Gartner data in February 2014 ) and this year will rise to an estimated 1.2000000000 to 1.30000000001.3000000000 . Which models will dominate ? Which will bring more innovation ? Much can understand at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the leading trade fair for the sector opens to the public on Monday .
The most awaited event will be the presentation of the new Samsung Galaxy S5(best iphone 4 cases) . And ' one of the two high-end phones that all look , professionals and business enthusiasts. The other , the iPhone 6 will be seen only in the second half of the year. The Korean company , which remains largely the number 1 in the world (it has 30 % market share) has hastened the time to store the previous Galaxy S4 . The top model of 2013 has sold well, but not as much as expected. Many have continued to buy the cheapest S3 , the 2012 model that still defends itself just fine. And then Monday night will stage " Unpacked 5 " , the show - event in which all dedicated to the new Galaxy S, the fifth of the family.
It could be available in two versions . A available from the outset , a little ' less expensive screen with Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels ) and the traditional plastic structure . The other aluminum frame , arriving in the spring, according to rumors with amazing technical specifications , starting with the screen resolution " 2K " (2560 x 1440 pixels). Samsung should also cater to launch a new graphical interface and new software features , improving the potential of " smart " ( page scrolling with the hand or the eye , videos to be paused if the eyes look elsewhere , etc.). 've Seen on the Galaxy S4 . The front should be incorporated , such as the iPhone 5s , a fingerprint sensor .
What is certain is that Samsung will insist on the strategy of "companion " gadget accessory that goes with your smartphone , and extending its potential. The Galaxy Gear, first smartwatch ( smart clock ) , the Korean company will soon - maybe already in Barcelona - joined by a second model which is expected to progress to overcome imitate (drums , design, reduced functionality ) in the first attempt. That of smartwatch(cheap iphone 5s cases) and "activity tracker" ( bracelets, but not only that monitor our physical state ) is a trend that at Mobile World Congress will find ample confirmation . There will be a plethora of new products expected in different presentations major companies like HTC, Huawei, ZTE and others.
These accessories are ideal candidates to complement the new smartphone, or indeed of invasive phablet of those models means "phone" and media tablet. Phones by extra-large sizes . We have witnessed a real invasion of models from 6 inches and there are those, such as LG, Barcelona will relaunch with the new generation badged 2014. As the G Pro 2 , a specimen 5.9 inches which debuts function Knock Code: need to unlock the screen " drumming " code with your fingers on the touchscreen.
The fair will be an opportunity to take stock of the operating systems. Android , which Google dominates : 78% of the market is his. The stands will be able to see the work platforms that arise from actually "open " and today still embryonic as Firefox Os , Os Sailfish of the Finnish Jolla Touch or Ubuntu . Hard to know if they can carve out a space , albeit niche . Besides, even a historical name like BlackBerry is in big trouble and you're refocusing on the business sector. However this could bring a new model based on its BlackBerry 10 .
Windows Phone instead is growing , albeit slowly. Microsoft is waiting to complete the acquisition of Nokia's mobile division and then it should be no surprise by presenting its first Android model(samsung galaxy s4 cases) . A mysterious model known with the names in code of Nokia or Nokia X Normandy : characteristics of low-end , low price (around 100 € ) and emerging markets in the viewfinder. On board will not have the classic Google services : the version of Android will be major changes compared to the standard one .
But the new reality speak Chinese . They expect fireworks from names such as ZTE , Xiaomi , Huawei and Lenovo particular , that a few weeks ago we brought home a historic brand like Motorola . Software in the United States , hardware in the Far East : the future seems to have marked the road .
