Another year, another new flagship.
This year’s Mobile World Congress is promising another memorable show thanks to the plethora of new smartphones that are due to be announced. Last year’s trend of introducing bezel-less screens continues this year, with more and more companies adapting to the change and not just on the premium side but also on mid-range and at times, entry-level devices.
Additionally, there’s a huge presence by Chinese on the show that proves it is slowly dominating the smartphone world previously only occupied by the likes of Samsung and Apple. Huawei, for example, has now surpassed Samsung as the top manufacturer in China, only next to Apple.
As Mobile World Congress commences in Barcelona in the next few days, here are some of the devices we can’t wait to see during the show.
Huawei – The Chinese manufacturer is scheduled to reveal the Huawei P11 – though conflicting reports suggest the company will use the event as a way to get into the US market. Still, there’s a good chance that we might see a new device during the event.
Nokia – While HMD Global is supposed to reveal a bunch of new smartphones at MWC. But the highlight will probably be on the Nokia 9. It’s rumored to have a Snapdragon 835 CPU along with dual cameras at the back and dual cameras at the front.
Motorola – At the start of the year, Motorola’s 2018 lineup has revealed and that includes the new versions of the Moto Z3, X5, and the G6. There’s a good chance that we might see the same line-up at MWC.
Sony – It won’t be MWC unless Sony releases another mid-cycle flagship. Expect a new line of Xperia smartphone to be revealed, ranging from mid-rage to premium devices.
LG – The G7 might probably be the last smartphone LG’s G-series before they eventually replace it with a new name. But there is also a chance that they might come out with a new name entirely. Expect the same 18:9 taller aspect ratio on its next flagship, which should mimic the new design aspects of the LG G6.
Mobile World Congress opens in Barcelona on the 26th of February. Stay tuned for the latest updates.
