We've got more hands-ons incoming. Check below for a look at what's been happening so far.

MWC 2015: Samsung

At MWC 2014, Samsung released the Galaxy S5. This year, Samsung has revealed two versions of the flagship, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. Offering premium feel with a glass and aluminum body, next-gen 64-bit processor, and impressive camera technology, these devices are set to be world beaters.

MWC 2015: HTC

HTC has unveiled the HTC One M9, which looks almost identical to the HTC One (M8). Fans of the previous design are sure to be happy and HTC has suped up the internals with a Snapdragon 810 processor and 20 MP camera on the back.

MWC 2015: Sony

Sony revealed two new devices (neither of them are the Xperia Z4 smartphone), these being the midrange inspired Sony Xperia M4 Aqua and the high-end Xperia Z4 Tablet. The Omnibalance design with metal and glass is apparent on the cutting-edge Z4 Tablet, while the M4 Aqua looks like a solid mid-tier device housed in plastic, with 2 GB of RAM and octa-core Snapdragon processor.

MWC 2015: Huawei

The big announcements from Huawei was its Android Wear smartwatch, the Huawei Watch. First impressions are good – the device looks and feels premium. It's is possibly the best looking Android smartwatch to date.

MWC 2015: LG

LG also introduced a new Android Wear smartwatch, that being the LG Watch Urbane. The Watch Urbane is essentially the same as the G Watch R, with a different design, however an LTE version was also announced with some interesting new features, like voice calling.

A new line of mid-range LG smartphones were presented at an LG event in London event to coincide with MWC goings-on in Barcelona. The new devices are said to offer an excellent quality / price ratio, but the names are a little strange.

The LG Manga, Spirit, Leon and Joy, vary in size and battery capacity, but very little else. All will launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.

MWC 2015: Lenovo

Lenovo will be launching several smartphones at MWC 2015, and one of these could be the Vibe Max, the company's first stylus-equipped smartphone, with 6-inch QHD display. We might also see another five Vibe phones from Lenovo. These include the photo-oriented Vibe Shot, the octa-core Vibe P1 and P1 Pro, the metallic flagship Vibe X3, and the Vibe S1 - which will be available in several colors.

We covered Lenovo's latest tablet in our Yoga Tab 2 Pro review, and will bring you more on Lenovo's new smartphones as the news arrives.

MWC 2015: Asus

Asus will be at MWC 2015 too, apparently with the Zenfone 2 Mini. As you may recall, the Zenfone 2 made waves at CES recently for being the world's first smartphone with 4 GB of RAM.

We covered the device in our hands-on Zenfone 2 review, and were impressed by what we saw, so to see an even smaller version with the same specs sheet would be great.We'll see at MWC whether Asus takes the ''shrunken flagship'' approach or the ''watered down'' angle.

MWC 2015: Motorola

A invitation went out on February 25 to the press saying an "exciting announcement" was imminent. Does Motorola have a new smartphone or, more likely, a new Moto 360 smartwatch in store for us?

That's what we've got so far. Should anything else crop up, our MWC team will be on hand to get the scoop.
