Upcoming or recent phones 2015:

Lenovo A7000

Released together with the Vibe Shot, the Lenovo A7000 is a 5.5-inch HD Android pitched as the world's first smartphone to stream audio via the Dolby Atmos mobile sound system. It banks on an octa-core 1.5GHz processor from MediaTek (True8Core MT6752m), backing its blend of the Android 5.0 Lollipop and VIBE UI platforms.

Huawei Watch

Coming out of the MWC 2015, Huawei's first true smartwatch is powered by the Android Wear platform backed by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm APQ8026 processor. Its metal-crowned interface is fronted by a sapphire crystal plate, adding an extra layer of durability. The Huawei Watch is available in Black, Silver, as well as Gold cases, and comes with either stainless steel or leather straps.

Acer Liquid Z520

Released alongside Acer's first Lollipop model (Liquid Z220), this KitKat-driven Android sports a 5-inch FWVGA screen and an 8-megapixel rear camera -- both respectively higher compared to that of the Z220's. It comes with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and powers up from a 2000mAh battery.

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua

Sony channels several high-end perks offered by the Xperia Z-series into the 5-inch HD Xperia M4 Aqua, which is the brand's first octa-core (Snapdragon 615, 64-bit) model. It sports a 13-megapixel Exmor RS rear camera equipped with the Superior Auto Mode, as well as a 5-megapixel 720p-recording selfie cam.

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL

Similarly lined up for an after-purchase upgrade to the Windows Phone OS 10, the 5.7-inch Cortana-equipped Lumia 640 XL is the 640's more capable big brother. Several of its specs differ from that of the 5-inch model, including the 3000mAh battery, 13-megapixel ZEISS optics rear camera, and 5-megapixel Skype-integrated selfie cam.

Over on the hardware department, it mimics the 640 with its 1.2GHz quad-core engine, 1GB RAM, and 8GB internal memory expandable to up to 128GB via microSD. The XL also comes in two variants: dual-SIM 3G and dual-SIM LTE.

Microsoft Lumia 640

Microsoft's MWC 2015 smartphone pitch is the mid-range Lumia 640 and 640 XL, the former being a 5-inch HD Windows model that comes fully integrated with Skype and the Cortana personal voice assistant. Its preloaded Windows Phone OS 8.1 (with Lumia Denim) is bound for an automatic update to the Windows 10 operating system. The Lumia 640 is available in a 3G as well as a 4G LTE version, both of which power up from a 2500mAh battery and come with an up-to-128GB external memory support (8GB internal memory). It dons the Lumia legacy color options, including Glossy Cyan, Orange, and Matte Black.

Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 Plus

This 6-incher from Alcatel is driven by the open-source CyanogenMod operating system, which borrows heavily from the Android platform. Inside its aluminum-based casing is an octa-core processor running at 2GHz accompanied by a 2GB RAM. A 16GB internal memory expandable to up to 64GB also joins its specs.

Acer Liquid Z220

This 4-inch smartphone would have been an exact carbon copy of Acer's Windows-based Liquid M220 if not for its Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system.

Acer Liquid M220

The Mobile World Congress 2015 marks Acer's entry into the Windows phone market via the Liquid M220, which comes preloaded with Skype, an array of Microsoft tools, and the Cortana personal assistant.

Acer Liquid Jade Z

A 13-megapixel Bright Magic rear camera, a 64-bit MediaTek engine, and LTE Cat.4 are on board for the 5-inch Liquid Jade Z.

HTC One M9

Unveiled a day before the MWC 2015 in Barcelona, HTC's 5-inch One M9 is bound to be of flagship stature with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64-bit processor, 20-megapixel sapphire-protected 4K-recording camera, and Sense UI v7.0. Its premium-class specs also include an UltraPixel selfie cam, a 3GB RAM, as well as a blend of HTC BoomSound and Dolby 5.1 on the audio front.

We found a 32GB on-board memory and a 2840mAh battery on this ultra high-end Android, which is crafted with a dual-tone metal (single colors are also available) unibody design. The One M9 is the first HTC phone to wear the second edition of the brand's Dot View Smart flip case.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

Its 5.1-inch dual-curved Gorilla Glass 4 display might be the Edge's only edge over the Galaxy S6, which is also powered by a 64-bit split octa-core processor and a 3GB LPDD4 RAM.

Samsung Galaxy S6

Samsung's 64-bit Galaxy S6 impresses on the imaging department with its 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen at 577ppi.

ZTE Grand S3

ZTE's Grand S3 boasts a 16-megapixel camera as well as an 8-megapixel selfie cam, and supports them with a 2.5GHz quad-core engine accompanied by a 3GB RAM.
