The Mobile World Congress, or the MWC, is the biggest smartphone event in the world and features exclusive peaks and announcements by some of the biggest names in the business. There isn’t as many surprises this year as there have been in previous events, but the audience is growing larger and larger each year in hope of getting the juicy gossip.
The event takes place in Barcelona and despite the real lack of “surprise” due to a lot of rumors and leaks, the show still boasts an impressive line up and people are already getting excited. So what can you expect to see at this years MWC? Read on to find out.
Samsung are one of the biggest smartphone makers in the world, who have been relatively quiet on what they’ll be doing at the show, more than likely because of all of the trouble they’ve had with the Galaxy Note 7. What we do know is that they’ll more than likely be announcing their new tablet – The Galaxy Tab S3. The natural evolution to the Tab S2, we can expect this new model to leave us in awe.
LG have been announcing their products for the world to see for months. It hasn’t all been official of course, with many leaks finding their way to the media. Due to all of the information that has been floating around, we can expect a thorough insight into the G6. There’s a lot of information already on the web about this model, although we hope the odd feature surprise will come out during the MWC.
Rather surprisingly, HTC have opted not to divulge any real information about what they’re announcing. Although it’s expected that they will be rather quiet at the show. The president has already dismissed any possibility of any Snapdragon 835 handsets and a lot of stuff was announced at their own event.
We are a little excited about what these have to offer at the MWC. HMD have been planning quite the party to announce at the show so we can’t wait to see what that might be. The Nokia 6 has already been announced, although that will be exclusive for the Chinese Market, so what fun announcements will be discovered remains to be seen. We do know it’ll be cool.
There isn’t much chatter to suggest what Sony will announce, however Sony being Sony, we can be confident they’ll do something great. Rumors do point towards the release of the Xperia X2, so perhaps we’ll get more information about this handset. There’s also many smaller projects which we’re likely to learn more about, such as the Agent.
So there you have it. Some of the biggest brands in the smartphone market all waiting and willing to announce some juicy news at the MWC. Let us know what you’re most excited about in the comments!
