It’s our first day at the planet’s largest showcase for new mobile technology, Mobile World Congress 2014, and already Barcelona is buzzing with gadget announcements from Acer, Lenovo, LG and Samsung. You’ll find all the hottest gadget debuts below, including a fitness band with a detachable Bluetooth headset for taking calls, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD +, and new smartwatches from Samsung. Yes, watches. Plural. Catch everything you missed from MWC 2014 Day 1.
The LG Pro 2 is a significant improvement over its predecessor, the Optimus G Pro. Front and center is a new 5.9-inch display that is a .4 inch jump in screen real estate and serves as more than enough breathing room for an excellent 1920 x 108o-pixel resolution. The display makes the device larger but LG has slimmed down its profile from .37 to .33 inches. And powering the Pro 2 is a Snapdragon 800 CPU, the same powerful chip that keeps the Galaxy Note 3 snappy and fast.
