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 announcement 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.

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.

MWC 2015: Lenovo
Lenovo launched several devices at MWC 2015. 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
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.
