The Annual Consumer Electronics Show has just ended, so the tech world is now prepping for the next big event in the tech space – Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February. And there’s already a number of rumours and leaked information about the new devices expected to be announced at the event. Here are three new devices that have a likelihood of making an appearance at MWC.

NOKIA NORMANDY

A few weeks ago, we reported that Nokia is abandoning its Android initiatives and pushing for the development of wearable tech instead. However, recent image leaks of the alleged Nokia Normandy tell a different story.

The latest leak of the alleged Android-based Nokia handset include some very juicy information including its model number via an Antutu benchmark score. According to the uploaded benchmark score the phone (model number A1110) has a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and runs on Android 4.4.1.

At the moment, much of the details about the Nokia Normandy are still in murky waters and all we have are speculations. But if in case, Nokia pushes for the release of this phone, we’ll certainly hear more as MWC approaches, so stay tuned.

SAMSUNG GALAXY S5

Another highly-anticipated handset scheduled to be unveiled at MWC is the Samsung Galaxy S5. According to recent reports, Samsung is going for a “back-to-basics” approach with the S5.

Some of the rumours we’ve heard about this upcoming phone include the use of metal for the construction of its body, improved display (reportedly sporting a 2K screen) and a new user interface with thinner fonts and pastel colours.

SONY VAIO PHONE

Lastly, we’ve also heard that Sony might announce a Windows-powered phone this year. Following its line of Xperia smartphones powered by Android, it looks like the Japanese manufacturer is looking to expand its smartphone range to appeal to a wider audience.

According to reports, the Windows-powered phone will be marketed with the Vaio brand and will rely on Sony’s proprietary services including Music and Video Unlimited in order to differentiate itself from other Windows-Phone devices.

The Vaio phone is expected to be released by the middle of the year, so there’s no guarantee if we’re going to see it on MWC, but let’s keep our fingers crossed that Sony might at least give us some confirmation during the event.
