By 05:26 Fri, 23 Jul 2021 Comments

Another week has passed and it's only natural that we hold a quick glance at the past few days and see what happened in the mobile world. With MWC 2015 correct around the corner all eyes seem to be on the major mobile players and their future device lineups. The Hype is all-encompassing, but Samsung seems to be stealing the spotlight with its highly-anticipated Galaxy S6.

The future flagship device and its curved sibling have been stirring up a lot of controversy. Leaks have departed slightly from last week's multitude of case photos and are now gravitating around actual and supposedly precise 3D renders of the device and talks of a possible glass back to facilitate wireless charging.

We have been hearing more and more on the guts of the Galaxy S6 flagship with rumors pointing to a 20MP OIS main capturing camera as well as beastly performance from the Exynos 7420 SoC and Mali-T760 GPU. HTC's next flagship - the One (M9) is also exciting fans with word of an equally impressive 20MP Toshiba-made camera.

Sony might be skipping the formal press event at the Barcelona venue, but hype is still gathering around the Xperia Z4. The handset will most-likely not be unveiled at the show, but its alleged Snapdragon 810 SoC made an appearance in GeekBench scores this weeks. The Japanese tech giant also expanded its mid-range lineup with a duo of recent Xperia E4 models.

In other news Android update fever is still strong, especially on the Samsung front. The Galaxy Note 4 and Note 3 are finally getting the Lollipop treatment and the Korean giant also made it clear that the Galaxy Note 2 will not miss out on the recent Operating System (OS) version.
