Part of the team Barcelona City Hotels- Barcelona City Blog was in the first day of Barcelona Mobile World Congress 2014 yesterday seeing some of the most important news of this edition.
Water resistant devices in Mobile World Cogress
One of the innovations that we had been seeing for several months but is being enhanced devices are waterproof (water-resistant). Smartphones, tablets and smart watches waterproof enable users not having to worry about if their devices are wet. Are ideal, for example, if we are using our mobile or tablet browser or map in the rain.
SONY is one of the brands that is more enhancing the waterproof system . In fact, the new flagship of Sony, the Xperia Z2, besides having an amazing camera with a recording system in slow motion at 120 fps / second, it is also waterproof.
Smartphones as leisure center in MWC2014
Enhancing the smartphone as leisure center was another upward trend we saw at the Barcelona Mobile World Congress 2014 yesterday.
In fact, thanks to some new accessories presented by Samsung, your smartphone can become a console with all the amenities to play. In the picture we can see how we tested it 🙂
Larger and curves screens!
Is clear that smartphones are bigger every daybut it is more surprising that they are not flat. We saw at Mobile World Congress LG G Flex yesterday. It is the first smartphone with curved screen. Although the smartphone was introduced in October 2013, the truth is still very new.
It is called LG G Flex but has little flexible. Its curved screen gives the feeling that viewing pictures is a kind of constant 3D. It’s incredibly thin despite its 6-inch screen.
The truth is that it was all a very strange experience to have on hand.
Payments from your smartphone
Payment from Mobile are some of the upward trends we saw at Mobile World Congress 2014. Technologies such as NFC enable us in a fairly near future pay from your smartphone without taking credit card.
Furthermore, the use of the fingerprint identification method as in many smartphones also help in paying from Mobile. In fact, after the presentation yesterday of the new Samsung Galaxy S5, Paypal has announced that it will purchase and pay with fingerprint authentication from the new Samsung Galaxy S5.
