As we know that MWC 2015 is going to happen very shortly. So it is obvious that all the people have their eyes on products of major companies that will be announced in this event, like the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One (M9) but the Barcelona venue is expected to have a lot more mobile tech in store.
Companies like Acer will also announce specific product on this show. According to a new banner we will be see new phones and wearable device at MWC which is released on Acer Malaysia’s Facebook page. The teaser itself is very ambiguous and holds little information.
According to a new report, for looks Acer will accent on fashionable patterns and materials in its upcoming products. In the banner we can see three images showing the parts of the devices. But to grasp any information from the close-ups is very herculean task. Alongside most major players, Acer also schedules its official MWC event for March 1.
The final design of the unannounced HTC One M9 has been revealed through the recent leaks. HTC’s Senior Global Online Communications Manager named Jeff Gordon twitted on Twitter that “the best parts of HTC’s March 1st launch event are the parts you have NO IDEA are coming.”
However it is clear that HTC has much more to reveal at MWC. Perhaps HTC will announced it’s One M9 Plus, that is expected to have a 5.2-inch Quad HD display and a fingerprint sensor. It will be larger, more advanced, and certainly also more expensive than the regular One M9.
As we know that the regular One M9 itself have some surprising features. The smartphone will have a 5-inch 1080p display and will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor. The One M9 will run Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense 7 UI.
In the rear side of the device it has a 20 MP camera and in the front side it has a 5 MP camera. The device will also have 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable storage and the new smartphone will also features BoomSound speakers.
As we know that China’s ZTE is going to launch a Smartphone during the MWC 2015 and according to the new rumor ZTE might be announcing its next Nubia flagship smartphone, the ZTE Nubia Z9.
Today a video of the ZTE Nubia Z9 leaked over the web. We can see the video which is quite pleasant. We can also see the device equips a premium build with a metal frame and (possibly) glass covers and it seems that it might have a 5.5-inch or bigger display.
Possibly, ZTE will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor. However we will not be overwhelmed if the company chooses MediaTek’s upcoming MT6795 octa-core SOC, which matches and exceeds Qualcomm’s silicon’s multi-core performance.
It is expected that we will have more info about the Nubia Z9 at the upcoming MWC 2015.
Today a decision came against Apple from US court and the court has ordered Apple to give a fine of $532.9 million to Texas-based patent licensing company Smartflash. The court found Apple the guilty for violating the terms related to the patents.
The patents are connected to the digital rights management (DRM), data storage and payment systems.
The company Smartflash alleged Apple for using its iTunes software patents without permission but the Cupertino-based company Apple rejected the claim and declared that the patents were invalid.
The Smartflash also blamed Apple for using its technology for ten years and claimed a relief of $852 million for the recovery from the damage caused by Apple. But According to Apple the patents were only worth $4.5 million.
“Smartflash makes no products, has no employees, creates no jobs, has no U.S. presence, and is exploiting our patent system to seek royalties for technology Apple invented,” said an Apple spokesperson.
It feels that Apple has no mood to pay the fine raised by Smartflash and hence the company is preparing to appeal the decision.
We hope Apple will settle the problem peacefully and quickly so that it came with more new devices for the users in coming days.
