MWC 2015: What to Expect from LG
Earlier in CES 2015, LG showcased LG G Flex 2- A premium flagship smartphone, so we aren’t going to expect there will be another flagship release (rumored to be LG G4 ). Rather than a smartphone, this year at MWC event, LG is planning to launch LG Watch Urbane LTE. In IFA 2014, we’ve seen LG G watch R, so this might be a better upgraded version from LG in the wearable segments.
So from LG, there will be a wearable device which will unveil on March 1,2015 at MWC 2015.
MWC 2015: What to Expect from Acer
Acer won’t be an exception for the MWC 2015 event. It has already publicized some teaser images of its next devices. The exact name, specifications are yet to be known. Anyhow its’a matter of just some hours and we’ll be seeing some new smartphones and a wearable from Acer.
From Acer there’ll be a wearable and a new smartphone/s

Samsung, One of the Top 3 smartphone vendor now has been dominating the MWC event every year. In MWC 2014, we’ve seen Galaxy S5 (successor to Galaxy S4) and this time we’re going to see two new smartphones from Samsung. Obviously one of them will be a successor to Galaxy S5: Galaxy S6 and the other will be a Galaxy S6 Edge. Earlier in IFA 2014, the South Korean company had unveiled the Galaxy Edge (curved at one edge) to the market. The upcoming smartphone i.e., S6 Edge will be of same genre.
In addition to these, there’s a rumor that Galaxy Tab S2 will also be released, but there’s no official words on this.

During it’s release, Microsoft confirmed that it will launch Windows phones running on Windows 10 but didn’t confirmed that they will be flagships like Lumia 930.

As for this year’s MWC, Sony is planning to launch a new smartphone and a tablet namely Xperia M4 Aqua and Xperia Z4 Tablet. Xperia Z4 might be released sometime in May as Sony is trying to do some heavy up-gradations for it.
