Given the fact that we live in a world where the number of mobile phone devices exceed the number of people, it is natural to have a global stage to present the latest in mobile technology. The Mobile World Congress 2017 is currently underway in Barcelona, Spain and has already garnered attention. Here is a list of the top mobile phones which have stolen the show until now.
- Nokia 3310 – The old warhorse, this is arguably the biggest thing to come out of the Mobile World Congress. The phone which was first launched 17 years ago is all set for a comeback. Priced at around Rs.3,500 it is devoid of the features most smartphones have today, but will take you back to your past. A 2-megapixel camera might not give the best quality pictures, but a standby battery time of one month might make it extremely appealing. Not to forget that it comes with the iconic game – Snake.
- LG G6 – The G6 is perhaps LG’s answer to Samsung, and while it might not be as popular as the Galaxy it is quite a handful. The new G6 supports Dolby Vision HDR, making it the first phone to do so. Result, amazing picture clarity. A dual-lens camera with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor ensure that it keeps pace with your lifestyle. LG has also ensured that water damage doesn’t play spoilsport, making this phone water resistant. The company did not announce the price for this model yet.
- Sony Xperia XZ Premium – Sony is aiming to relive its glory days and is counting on the new XZ to do so. A 4K HDR screen on a mobile phone was unheard of before this, but the XZ is the first phone to offer this package. A 5.2 inch screen with a 19MP rear camera ensures that your pictures look as clear as they are meant to be. Running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor the phone is expected to be one of the quickest in the market. Sony is yet to announce the price for this phone.
With the Mobile World Congress set to go on till March 2, 2017, we could be in for more path-breaking launches.
