Just when I was putting the finishing touches on my alien-focused MWC 2013 preview, I came across a video teaser of Asus’s presence at the event. And guess what, the clip is also centered on extraterrestrial beings.
MWC is rapidly closing in on us and, with Samsung and HTC nearly confirmed as taking the event quite lightly, we need another “hero” to step in and capture the Barcelona spotlight. Could that someone else be LG?
LG has started teasing the new Optimus L series with an “unexpected distinction” last week, but, with MWC still a little ways down the road, we wouldn’t have expected to hear a whole lot about the phones so soon.
And so it starts. The battle for this year’s MWC spotlight, that is. We’re pretty certain Samsung and HTC have different fish to fry, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of treats in Barcelona from other big names in the industry.
A new day, a new set of Huawei Ascend P2-related leaks. After seeing the upcoming beast wave to the public in a couple of unofficial photos less than 24 hours ago, it’s time for a second date with Mr. Blurrycam.
Even if LG’s style of creating buzz before phone releases doesn’t involve spilling the beans on everything about the devices (like HTC, Sony or Samsung’s M.O.s), the Koreans definitely know how to get us excited.
Huawei has had a very strong CES showing last month, grabbing the headlines with both the Ascend D2 and Ascend Mate, but that doesn’t mean the company’s not holding some aces up its sleeve for February’s MWC as well.
