Samsung, LG to unveil next-gen flagship handsets at MWC 2016

At the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 in Barcelona, Spain, a number of Android-handset manufacturers -- including South Korean bigwigs Samsung and LG -- are expected to unveil the next-generation versions of their flagship devices.

Two of the most awaited Android-powered smartphones set to grab the spotlight at the MWC event this year include Samsung’s new Galaxy flagship handsets -- Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge -- and LG’s newest G5 flagship smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge handsets will mark a notable improvement over their current-generation Galaxy S6 counterparts. The new smartphones will boast a faster processor; more RAM; significantly improved ‘Dual Pixel’ 12-megapixel camera sensor camera; and support for microSD cards.

In addition, the new Galaxy handsets will also come with an ‘Always On’ display; and very high resistance to dust and water, including submersion.

The LG G5 smartphone, meanwhile, is expected to stand out from the other Android-powered handsets largely due to the introduction of a ‘Magic Slot’ which will apparently support the plug-in of expansion devices.

Moreover, another distinguishing feature of the G5 will be a secondary rear camera -- together with the standard lens -- capable of supporting 135 degree wide angle photos. The G5 will also come with a low-power ‘Always On’ display, to show the time and select notifications.
