BT and Nokia's joint study into how 5G could support VR for fully immersive live sport, for example, could change the smart TV market, as we know it. Here are some of the most notable releases this year, all of which will undoubtedly make it to our shores soon.
This week alone, more than two-thousand companies will show off their latest mobile gadgets to throngs of delegates looking for how innovation will shape the mobile industry for the next year and beyond. But the word on the street is that LG won't long remain the only company playing the aspect-ratio card. It will come with a 5.7-inch display and a glass body. There is a "matte sandblast" finish with rounded edges. Under the hood, the phone packs a Snapdragon 821 SoC that is paired with an Adreno 530 GPU, 4GB RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. It has dual 13MP rear camera setup with OIS, laser autofocus, HDR 10 and dual LED flash while the front has a 5MP selfie shooter.
For one week each year, Barcelona becomes the center of the 400 billion dollar mobile phone industry.
In addition to comparing brand engagement with the mobile frontrunners, the survey examined how aware consumers are of Nokia's full new range of smartphones. Plus, the 3310 comes in four attractive colours. And as the classic brick was, the 3310 remains old faithful with 22 hours of talk time and a month of standby time.

In a statement, the firm wrote: "We are always testing new products and offers but have no news to share at this time". Spotify is preparing to launch a lossless audio version of its streaming service , according to multiple sources.
Nokia announced a host of smartphones at MWC 2017, including the Nokia 3310, the Nokia 3, the Nokia 5 and a special model of the Nokia 6. BlackBerry also made a comeback with the KeyOne. A phone in a suit, the KeyOne is no-nonsense, straight-up Blackberry harking back to a time when the company's cell phones were at a high point. The perfectly sized 5.7-inch quad-HD IPS display quite effectively satisfies the display requirements surrounded by a really tiny side bezel.
A journalist tries the new features of the Gionee device at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, Feb. 27, 2017. With a design that takes cues from the signature Lumia line, the 5 and 3 look minimal and premium. Its new G6 squeezes a attractive 5.7-inch display into a bezel-free slim form factor, allowing you to comfortably tap out a message with one hand. This is why it should come as no surprise that the phone will be launched in India, alongside its three siblings, the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. The phones have Leica optics, image stabilisation and tweaks including a bokeh depth of field effect (which blurs the background while keeping the subject crisp).
What do you think of the new LG G6? Well, it might also make a fun paperweight for people in the USA who have fond memories of their first mobile phone (if they're old enough to have had a cell phone before the days of the smartphone).
While Nokia promises to be among the top three smartphone makers in the world, it has to have more than it has on its table, to take down the likes of Apple Inc. who come first, Samsung Group in the second place and finally Huawei Consumer Business Group who are ranked third.
