Huawei launched the MediaPad X1 at the MWC even last year, a tablet come smartphone that was pretty small considering its 7-inch display, while it also came with calling capabilities. The Chinese company will use this year's Mobile World Conference to roll out the sequel to the X1, the so-called Honor X2.
Motorola's stable of smartphones is pretty damn good at the moment, from the Moto E at entry level through the Moto G, Moto X, Nexus 6, and DROID Turbo, it is one of the most robust portfolios in the industry.

A brand new reports seems to add more weight to the rumor that Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S6 smartphone flagship will be accompanied by the Galaxy S6 Edge.

January will be a busy month for Chinese company Xiaomi. The brand will launch a new flagship, the Mi5, a new update for the Redmi 1S, and the Redmi Note 2.

I hope that the company is planning on rolling out a device in the US, and I hope that device is the Redmi Note 2.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is getting ever nearer to launch with a March unveiling widely predicted. It is probably the most intriguing smartphone that will be rolled out during the first half of 2015, because a lot rides on its success or failure and no-one really knows what to expect. There is an image being passed around today that reportedly shows a fully assembled Galaxy S6 running.
LG's G3 flagship from this year raised the bar for the company and made it a true competitor to compatriot Samsung. The Korean company plans to continue the assault with the upcoming G4, and this time LG is going to use a little help, something Samsung already uses. A stylus.
