Galaxy S III at Mobile World Congress next week, and it appears that none of the hardware it will have on hand is notable enough for a press conference. But if rumors from MK News can be believed, there'll be at least one interesting thing to see: a smartphone with no bezel, or at least a nearly invisible one. The "Samsung Galaxy B" is reported to have a Super AMOLED display with no bezel (i.e. no space between the edge of the screen and the edge of the phone) on the side or bottom of the screen, with just a sliver on top for a speaker and front-facing camera.

announced the Liquid Glow, which we are assured is a smartphone (as opposed to a shampoo or a car wax). This decidedly mid-range phone has all the basic goodies crammed into a 3.7-inch form factor, with the notable addition of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at launch.
LG, now another initiated manufacturer is giving us the goods before the big show. Japanese OEM NEC has displayed a trio of new high-end MEDIAS phones set to make their public debut at Mobile World Congress next week, All three are relatively large devices (especially for the Japanese market) running Ice Cream Sandwich, and all of them appear to be in the prototype stage. The interest is mostly academic for us since NEC rarely makes its hardware available outside of Asia, but at least one of the phones will strike a chord with those who love to see unique form factors. Impress Watch caught a look at them in an early press event.
NVIDIA is making some huge strides in the mobile scene as of late. With their first fully powered smartphone in the ZTE Mimosa X and more.

PocketNow got their hands on what appears to be the very first press photo of the new HTC One X (nee Edge, Endeavor) before its Mobile World Congress debut on Sunday. It lines up pretty closely with concept renders, which are all we've seen thus far. If there was any doubt that this one was headed for retail soon, it's pretty much dispelled at this point. This one is headed for Mobile World Congress - note the "Barcelona" location in the weather widget.

Mobile World Congress officially kicks off on Sunday but we are slowly starting to see plenty of leaks and details this past week.
