Mobile World Congress 2014 is less than a week away, and manufacturers must be gearing up for their press events and product launches.
If you’re a Windows Phone fan, there’s a bad news for you. According to the folks at Re/code, it is unlikely that any new Windows Phone handset will debut at the event, but there will be a bunch of new Android phones in Barcelona.
Microsoft is also holding a press event on Sunday in Barcelona, but it’s unlikely they will announce anything about the Windows Phone 8.1. It actually makes sense, as Microsoft is expected to announce their latest and greatest offering, the Windows Phone 8.1 at the annual Build Conference in April. So, launch of new Windows Phone devices powered by the latest operating system, near or after the event does make sense actually.
We’ve heard rumors that Samsung is also working on a Windows Phone powered device codenamed Huron, but we’ve yet to see an official announcement from the Korean OEM. Nokia is also rumored to launch some Windows Phone 8.1 devices as we’ve seen a few bits of information from @evleaks — remember the mysterious codenames he tweeted out a few months back.
What do you people think? We didn’t see anything at the CES last month, so it won’t be surprising if they don’t make an appearance at the MWC as well.
