Top 5 Smartphones unveiled at MWC 2012

Biggest show of the mobile industry has come to an end. Like every year, Mobile World Congress was packed with tons of phone and tablet launches. Here we are covering top 5 smartphone unveiled by popular brands.

Nokia 808 Pureview

Yes it runs on crappy Symbian but still makes up to the list of top five. Reason behind all this is a whopping 41 megapixel camera  which you expected to see on any smartphone by 2013 or even later. The phone features a 1.3 GHz processor and 4 inch display with resolution of 640 x 360 pixels. Whats more surprising is the phone winning the official Best of Show award at Mobile World Congress. Well no one expected this award will be going to Nokia, atleast I didn’t. But 41 megapixel camera on a phone is really a big deal. The official sample pictures clicked by the phone have been also uploaded to Flickr by NokiaOfficial.


HTC One X is the first phone running on Quad Core Processor. Its sports a 8 Megapixel with auto focus, smart LED flash, and BSI sensor for capturing some amazing moments of your life. The phone also has stunning 4.7 inch HD display with resolution of 1280*720 pixels. ONE X is my personal favorite not just because of powerful processor but also because of its design, build quality, beats audio, HTC Sense 4 & some of the cool new features introduced for the first time.


Second phone in the HTC X lineup, ONE V shares some of its specifications with Rhyme. The phone is powered by 1 GHz dual core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 5 Megapixel camera with 720p Video Recording and lastly 3.7 inch display with resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. HTC ONE V also has beats audio and is expected to hit stores with ONE X & ONE S in first week of April 2012. Pre-order is already up on Clove UK for ONE X at £410.00, ONE S at £375.00  and ONE V at £220.00. Credit for high pricing goes only to Beats.


I know Lumia was announced at CES 2012 but that was only LTE version with AT&T, America’s leading network. But finally after a month wait, Nokia has finally announced the global version (unlocked) available in its usual colors white, cyan and black.  The phone is powered by 1.4 GHz processor and 512 MB RAM with 4.3″ AMOLED display. It sports a 8 Megapixel camera with LED flash. Lumia 900 will be available in Q2 of 2012 and will retail for 480€.

ASUS Padfone

No, Its just not a single thing. This is a phone, a tablet and a netbook.  Confused? Well, Let me explain. Asus, the Taiwan based smartphone and tablet manufacturer has unveiled the much awaited Padfone running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The phone features a 4.3 inch display and when it is placed inside the optional PadFone Station, it transforms into a 10.1 inch tablet with five times more powerful battery. Pure Magic, isn’t it?  There is more, if you now connect the tablet to an optional accessory such as keyboard the battery life is 9 times more. This is certainly one of the best technologies we have seen in last few years. To get a better idea you can watch this video here.
