MWC 2012

LG X3 will come to market as the Optimus 4X HD

What's more catchy than an extremely generic product name like "X3"? How about a longer generic name that's already appeared on dozens of handsets? PocketNow reports that the LG X3, rumored to be the South Korean manufacturer's new flagship when it appears at Mobile World Congress, will be rechristened the LG Optimus 4X HD. Why 4X? Who knows. Changes from a codename to a more generic name for actual release aren't uncommon, and our American readers should remember that LG tends to bow to carriers when it comes to US branding - see the Optimus LTE and its Nitro HD and Spectrum names on AT&T and Verizon, respectively.

Fujitsu plans 13.1MP Tegra 3 Ice Cream Sandwich phone for MWC

Fujitsu has been making waves in the Android world as of late, due in no small part to their impressively thin ARROWS phone bound for Japan. But the company is also planning a return to the world smartphone market with a debut at Mobile World Congress this month, and if you believe Unwired View, they won't be coming empty handed. Reportedly the company spoke of a monster phone with Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 SoC, a 4.6-inch display and a whopping 13.1-megapixel rear camera.

LG Optimus 3D Cube announced with 3D video editing and more

LG is at it again today and have announced another smartphone this week. With three new devices in the L series we mentioned earlier today and now the LG Optimus 3D 2, only they are calling it the LG Optimus 3D Cube.

Intel is set to make a big splash next week at Mobile World Congress. That splash being inside of Android smartphones and tablets of course.

Huawei MediaPad 10 leaked, set for February 26th presentation

Chinese OEM Huawei has big plans for Mobile World Congress, as we've seen in leaks of renders for their new Ascend D1 Q smartphone. Now the other rumored MWC launch, the 10-inch version of their MediaPad tablet, has seen the light of day as well. In a series of photos from Russian site Hi-Tech Mail, you can see fleeting glances of the 10-inch tablet and its slinky metal frame. There's little concrete information on the hardware itself, but like Huawei's other recent machines it'll be thin and run Ice Cream Sandwich.

LG Optimus L3, L5 and L7 revealed

LG has, as expected, taken the wraps off a further range of new smartphones ahead of MWC 2012, the LG L Series, consisting of three devices spanning hardware capabilities and price points. At the top sites the 4.3-inch LG Optimus L7, running Ice Cream Sandwich on an unspecified processor, and using the same blunt-edged style as LG previously showed on the PRADA Phone 3.0.

What to expect from Mobile World Congress 2012

In case you've been living under a rock for the last three months, the biggest mobile-themed trade show of the season starts next week in Barcelona, Spain. Mobile World Congress brings together manufacturers, partners and media from all over the world to sample the latest and hopefully greatest in phone and tablet hardware. It's at least as big a deal as CES for those of us who focus on the mobile side of the tech world, so Android Community will be there live to cover it all. But before we leave on a jet plane, we're counting down all the things you should be expecting at the show. Here's a preview of MWC:

Huawei Ascend D1 Q press photos leak

We've known that Huawei had something special planned for Mobile World Congress, and this would appear to be it. The first entry in Huawei's Diamond line is the Ascend D1 Q, and TechOrz.com got their hands on some leaked press shots prior to Huawei's conference. The renders show a typical high-end Android phone that's clearly of the large screen variety - probably with a 4.3-inch or larger display. The device's red-on-black color scheme is reminiscent of the HTC Rezound, though the shape looks more like a Galaxy-class smartphone.

Panasonic shows off Eluga smartphone for Europe

Ready for a new entry in the manufacturer wars, Europe? Electronics giant Panasonic just announced that they'd be bringing their Eluga smartphone to the Eurozone sometime in 2012, making it the company's first high-end Android phone to debut outside of Japan. They're playing it close to the chest when it comes to specifications, but we do know the phone will be semi-ruggedized, and features a qHD display and NFC capability. Like some of Samsung's late tablets, it'll work as a remote control for Panasonic's TV line.
