Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 is the latest handset from the South Korean manufacturer to feature a larger-than-life screen, S Pen input and a 1080p Full HD screen.

It comes in both 3G and LTE variations, with the former packing a 1.9 GHz octo-core chip and the latter a 2.3 GHz quad-core processor. It also marks a departure from the plastic casing of past Galaxy products, sporting leather housing in a choice of colours.


Samsung Galaxy Gear

Samsung has taken the fight to Apple in the smart watch sector with the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Gear, a hi-tech timepiece that syncs with your Android smartphone.

The Galaxy Gear features a 1.63-inch AMOLED display with a 320x320 resolution, as well as its own 1.9 megapixel camera, and is powered by a 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM.


Sony Xperia Z1

Sony introduced a stunning new flagship smartphone at IFA in the shape of the Xperia Z1, a device with a powerful 20.7 megapixel snapper and a 2.2 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor on board.

The device also comes with an eye-popping 5-inch Full HD display that harnesses the full potential of the Adreno 330 GPU at its core for an immersive viewing experience.


Sony SmartWatch 2

The Samsung Galaxy Gear wasn't the only smart watch on display at IFA, with Sony attempting to outdo its rival with its latest take on the concept.

Sony's SmartWatch 2 is designed to act as a second screen for your smartphone, relaying information such as text messages and social networking updates, so that massive inconvenience of having to reach into your pocket could soon become thing of the past.


LG G2

Not wanting to be left behind, LG is taking on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Sony's new Xperia Z1 with a flagship Android smartphone of its own.

The LG G2 certainly packs enough clout to pose a threat to the market leaders, sporting the latest Snapdragon 800 processor, a top-of-the-line 5.2-inch Full HD display, and a 13-megapixel camera.


LG G Pad 8.3

It isn't just the smartphone market that LG has set its sights on, with the firm now having returned to the tablet sector with the launch of its G Pad 8.3 Android slate.

Powered by a quad-core 1.7GHz qualcomm processor and boasting a Full HD IPS, the LG G Pad 8.3 looks destined to challenge the iPad mini at the high end of the market.
