MediaTek shows the world's first ARM Cortex-A72 processor, in a big.LITTLE formation with dual ARM Cortex-A72 and dual ARM Cortex-A53 on a 28nm process design with the SGX6250 GPU, this processor is real, it is implemented in a tablet here showing working Lollipop Android 5.0 running on their tablet reference! MediaTek provides it to their partners to start working on the integration and for their partners hopefully to soon be able to release ARM Cortex-A72 based MT8173 based tablets!

MediaTek now supports worldwide LTE with the 64bit MT6735 quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 and the 64bit MT6753 octa-core ARM Cortex-A53. This is LTE Cat4 for GSM and CDMA! They claim to be 10-15% faster in single SIM mode and 20-30% faster with dual-sim support compared to perhaps a Qualcomm LTE Worldmode. They also claim to use less power than competitor for standby, 3G and LTE mode. Many LTE Telcos around the world have already certified support for these new MediaTek LTE parts, with support on Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile, Three, Deutche Telekom, China Unicom, China Mobile Telefonica, Verizon and AT&T. This LTE Worldmode processor is a big deal for MediaTek as it opens up the USA market for them, where MediaTek previously didn't have much support for American telecoms as MediaTek's previous 3G and LTE solutions mainly was working outside of the USA.
Gold plated, also to be available in other colors/prices, Huawei is putting final touches to their Android Wear Smartwatch product, to be released by the middle of this year, their highlight for the MWC show and also quite an attraction and loved by tech media, it runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, comes with a 1.4inch 400x400 AMOLED display for an impressive 286ppi pixel density. The question is what price Huawei plans to sell it at, it may not be sold for cheap.

I ask normal people which of the top-3 high-end phablets they think is the better one among Huawei Mate 7, iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the flagship phablets from the top-3 Smartphone manufacturers in the world. I think the Mate7 is the best among those, although for me to recommend it to everyone, Huawei should price it at $299 instead of $499.
