MWC is an annual trade show typically held in late February or early March of every year. It’s where companies from all over the globe gather under a single roof to showcase their latest products, developments and projects. For many years now, the MWC conference, one of the big trio (CES, MWC, IFA), has been in Barcelona, Spain. This year is no different.
Samsung officially announced the long-rumored and much-anticipated Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagship smartphones. The company took wraps off the pair just prior to the start of MWC 2017 at its Unpacked 2018 event in Barcelona, Spain. As every one of us expected, the new phones are true competitors boarding the latest technology with revamped specifications and an emerging design, modern enough for 2018.
This year’s Samsung Unpacked event is scheduled to happen on Sunday, February 25. This is one day ahead of MWC 2018, which is a week-long event in Barcelona, Spain. The South Korean company confirmed that it will unveil Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ beginning at 12:00pm EST. Samsung must appeal to MWC’s larger crowd, so we’re expecting something a little extra special at this year’s event.
MWC is always full of Android smartphones. However, a trusted source recently reported news coming from an inside source stating that HTC will not present a flagship smartphone in Barcelona next month at MWC 2018. Word is HTC will host a private event after MWC 2018 to introduce a successor to the HTC U 11, which puts us in March or April.
Qualcomm is gearing up to launch its next-gen super high-end Snapdragon processor. According to a report from a trusted source who obtained a leaked image of promotional material, Qualcomm could unveil a Snapdragon 845 chipset in December.
