MWC 2017 Day 2: Xiaomi launches Mi5c, Gionee shows off A1, A1 Plus and more

Panasonic launches its most robust laptop on day 2 of mobile world congress

The second day at the Mobile World Congress 2017 (MWC 2017) saw virtual reality (VR) devices sharing the screen space with the smartphones. While brands like Xiaomi, Gionee and Alcatel launched a series of smartphones, tech giant Google used the occasion to tout its VR and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies. Google unveiled several apps including Daydream, Sky VR and Tango.

“We’ve built Daydream with lessons learned from Cardboard,” Amit Singh, vice president of business and operations, AR and VR, Google wrote in a blog. Daydream will give users a more immersive VR experience allowing them to watch videos on its platform. Sky VR, on the other hand, will aggregate content from a lineup that includes Hulu, Netflix and HBO to ‘showcases a range of immersive 360 videos’. Tango will focus on AR giving users three new apps– Sims, Chelsea Kicker and WSJ AR to experience the world from the prism of AR.

Here are the major gadgets launched on Day 2:

XIAOMI

Xiaomi unveiled its first ever in-house processor Surge S1 at MWC 2017. Surge S1 is a 2.2 GHz octa-core processor and features advanced GPU and image processing technology. Xiaomi’s new phone is ideal for budget buyers who are looking for strong specifications.

ALCATEL

Chinese manufacturer Alcatel launched three new smartphones and we are not at all impressed by the company’s latest launches. The phones feature a weak RAM and lacks a decent camera that most phones these days are offering.
