MWC 2015: what we want to see
MWC 2015 is fast approaching

MWC is quite possibly the biggest yearly event in the mobile world. At MWC 2014 for example we saw the Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2 and a plethora of other smartphones, tablets and smartwatches.

MWC 2015 is expected to be every bit as big and there are already rumblings of some of what might be on show, such as the Samsung Galaxy S6. That's likely to be a show stopper all on its own, but there are lots of others things going on in the mobile world too, so here's our list of what we'd most like to see.

Second generation smartwatches

Technically we're probably already on at least the third generation of smartwatches, but they've only recently started to take off and we're certainly on the first generation of Android Wear devices.

Those that have arrived so far are pretty good, but there's a lot of room for improvement and with the Apple Watch looming other manufacturers would do well to get truly polished products on the market before it launches.

Moto 360

So what specifically do we want? More smartwatches that actually look like a watch would be good, with circular displays like the Moto 630 and LG G Watch R, except less chunky and with smaller bezels than the G Watch R and without the cut-out on the Moto 360.

Longer battery life would be good too, as would higher resolution displays and more power, though it's unlikely we'll see all three in one watch any time soon. Just making them look good and removing the need to charge them every night would be a great start. Hopefully some such devices will turn up at MWC 2015.

HTC One M9

It's unlikely that the HTC One M9 will launch at MWC, but you never know and if nothing else it will probably launch at around that time.

If it did then it would probably be one of the most exciting handsets there. Hopefully whenever it launches it will have an improved camera (but maybe not take the same approach as the HTC Desire Eye).

It would also be good to see some truly cutting edge specs, water and dust resistance and a more attractive design, if that's even possible.

Sony Xperia Z4

The Sony Xperia Z2 launched at MWC 2014 so we're fully expecting the Sony Xperia Z4 to launch at MWC 2015. Beyond that not a whole lot is known about it, but that hasn't stopped us coming up with a wish list.

Xperia Z3

Among the things we want to see is a QHD display, improved low-light camera performance, 4K video which actually works (big ask we know) and a refreshed design.

We'd be amazed if we got all that, but even some of it would make the Sony Xperia Z4 an exciting prospect.

A new Lumia flagship

Microsoft can call the Nokia Lumia 830 an 'affordable flagship' all it wants, but we're not fooled, it's a mid-ranger in flagship clothing. Even though the Lumia 930 only came out in July we're already feeling in need of a new flagship, perhaps because so few Windows Phone handsets are released in general.

So whether it's the Lumia 1030 with a 6 trillion megapixel camera or the Lumia 940 with high-end performance we'd love to see something new.

While a new flagship is surely in the works we don't particularly expect to see it at MWC, more likely it will arrive later, but it would definitely be a highlight of the show if it did turn up.

Microsoft's wearable

There have been rumblings of a Microsoft wearable for a while now, though it's not clear whether it will be a full blown smartwatch or a wristband.

Either way, we're excited to see it, especially as it's rumored to support Android and iOS as well as Windows Phone. That could be a big deal for anyone with no strong allegiance to a specific OS.
