Upcoming Flagships to be Revealed on MWC 2018
The mobile week has started. Like previous years, this year too we will find many new phones or tablets this week.
So what we can expect from one of the biggest mobile shows, MWC 2018? Let’s find out.
If I start with the smartphone manufacturing giant Samsung, then you already have an idea about what I am going to say…
You are right. Samsung is definitely going to reveal Galaxy S9 officially. After many leaks, the time has finally come to get hands on the S9. We know this will be the flagship of the year from Samsung. I won’t mention any specs here because all the speculated specs are based on rumours. I can only bet that this phone is coming with Snapdragon 845 chipset and a dual rear camera that the S8 missed out on.
LG will always be my first choice in smartphones, especially, their two flagship lineups G and V series. Last year they launched the LG G6. The G6 was the first phone to have a 18:9 aspect ratio display. But if you are expecting LG to open a booth for LG G7 then you will be disappointed. This year in MWC, LG is releasing an upgraded variant of the phone we already have. Yeah, the V30 is coming.
We know Sony as one of the main companies who come up with new devices every MWC. This year we’re excited to see the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact rumored to come with 18:9 aspect-ratio display.
Nokia won the hearts of everyone at MWC 2017 with the Nokia 3310. But unfortunately this year, there are no rumors of feature-phones. You can only expect Nokia 1 which is an Android Go phone.
Four of the biggest global mobile brands won’t be bringing major new flagship devices to MWC. Huawei has booked an event in late March for its next top-tier phone, HTC will spend MWC talking about its VR efforts, Motorola doesn’t release flagships in February, and LG might not be ready with its next big release until June. Motorola is likely to repeat its MWC 2017 performance by fleshing out its mid-range Moto G series.
