1) Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
A number of flagship devices from the likes of HTC and Sony were announced, but predictably, most of the attention remained on Samsung when they announced the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. And rightly so, because the Galaxy S6 Edge goes in a completely new direction as far as the Galaxy lineup is concerned. Filled to the brim with cutting edge technology like UFS 2.0 flash memory, wireless charging and optical image stabilization; the flagship device made heads turn due to its all new metal and glass look. The most notable feature, of course was the uniquely curved double edged display that the device is equipped with.
2) Sony Z4 Tablet
Mobile enthusiasts were disappointed when Sony announced that they wouldn’t feature the all new Sony Xperia Z4 at the Mobile World Congress. But Sony has more than made up for its absence by showcasing the stunning new Z4 tablet. With a 6.1 mm waistline, the Z4 tablet is one of the thinnest tablets around is a sight to behold. The tablet features a 10.1 inch IPS display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600. Packed with the latest 810 octa-core chip from Snapdragon, the Z4 tablet is a powerful device that could easily give the Apple iPad Air a run for its money.
3) Huawei Watch
Huawei introduced its first Android Watch at the MWC 2015 and has minimally named it ‘Watch’. After the elegant Moto 360, the Huawei Watch may be the most beautiful Android wearable till date. It appears Huawei has also gone for the same principle as Motorola, that the device should have more of a premium watch feel than a digital wearable one. With a thin bezel and no compromises in the circular design that the Moto 360 had, the Huawei Watch is a welcome addition to the rare circular watch collection.
4) HTC Grip
HTC has entered the wearable devices market by announcing the HTC Grip, a slim, wearable health and fitness tracker. The GPS enabled device features a curved OLED display and a colorful band interior. The device includes five sensors to help consumers track their workouts, sleep times and calories burned. The integrated GPS enables the user to track running routes and distance without the use of a smartphone. With its sporty looks and a battery life of 5 hours, the HTC Grip might just make a mark in a crowded market.
5) SanDisk 200 GB MicroSD card
