It's going to be clash of the titans at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2016 (MWC 2016), as some of the most-anticipated flagship devices from major smartphone-makers will be unveiled at the event. Among the prominent devices expected to be announced at the event are Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5 and Xiaomi Mi 5.
Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 are expected to be unveiled on 21 February, a day before MWC 2016 kicks off, while Xiaomi Mi 5 is set to be announced on 24 February.
Xiaomi Mi 5 is expected to come with a price tag much lower than the Galaxy S7 and LG G5, so it won't be fair to place these devices in the same bracket, but given the fact that Xiaomi's popularity as a smartphone-maker has increased tremendously over the years, backed by sales of its products, all eyes will be on its upcoming flagship device.
These upcoming flagship devices are bound to be scrutinised and compared. There are also chances of these devices eating into each other's revenues.
