Top Chinese phones we expect to see at MWC

With MWC starting in only a few days there are a lot of great Chinese and international brands we can look forward to seeing. Of course it is the Chinese tech that we are more concerned about and here are the top Chinese phones we expect to see at MWC.

Big brands such as Gionee, Huawei, Lenovo and Meizu, plus smaller phone makers THL and Ulefone are all planning to show off phones at MWC this year. Here are our top picks to keep an eye on.

Meizu MX4 Ubuntu

Meizu won’t have their own stand at MWC but their partner Canonical will be at the show with the Ubuntu version of the Meizu MX4. Meizu have confirmed that the MX4 will get the Linux OS, but so far have not confirmed if the phone will feature the same hardware as the Flyme OS version. If nothing has changed then the Ubuntu MX4 will get 2GB RAM, MT6595 processor, LTE and that fantastic 21 mega-pixel rear camera from Sony.

Lenovo Vibe Shot


Lenovo are rumoured to have a whole family of new Vibe phones on display at MWC, but it is the camera centric Lenovo Vibe Shot which appeals most to myself. Leaked photos of the phone show an alloy device, with 3 LED flash and 16 mega-pixel rear camera with OIS. A Snapdragon 615 chipset is believed to have made it’s home inside.

Gionee Elife S7

Gionee have chosen MWC to launch their new slim phone. Gionee have said that their thin phone won’t sacrifice hardware and poked fun at the Oppo R5 for it’s lack of 3.5mm headphone jack earlier this year. From TENAA leaks we have learned that the Elife S7 will feature a 5.2-inch display, Mediatek MT6752 processor and measure just 5.5mm thick.

Lenovo Vibe X3

    Why are almost big Chinese phone players have more than 5inch phone screen! Its annoying if you are trying to use your phone in the gym, it keeps/ almost fall out of your pocket all time due to the size! I had to resort buying iPhone 5c today just for the gym!

      Well, did you look into an Armband Strap for your phone? Those are perfect for working out and listening to music while at it >.>

      Above 5 inches is what is in demand in China. How does a bigger phone fall out of your pocket but a smaller one doesn’t? The size of the display should have very little to do with whether it will slide out of your pocket, in fact a smaller one would be more likely to.

        Gym short have shallow pockets, and when you run on thread mill or lying Down doing bench press my phone (1+1) keeps falling out my pocket.

          So how does a smaller phone stay in your pocket better? The smaller phone would be more likely to fall out, it takes up less space in said pocket.

      Oppo has no plans for MWC2015. You’ll have to wait for their own announcement… Maybe after March 6, when they return to work.
