This week is MWC 2018, an annual conference that will once again be held in beautiful Barcelona, Spain. We’ll have you covered wall-to-wall with all the coverage and hot stories you need in extensive fashion. Each year, companies gather from around the world to show their latest products and innovations, and this year should be no exception. In fact, companies we report on frequently here on Droid Turf have already confirmed and begun teasing their press conference announcement. Some that will be on the show floor include: Samsung, LG, Sony, Huawei, Lenovo, Google, Nokia, and Alcatel.
For many years now, the MWC trade show has played a part in marketing new tech gadgets and services to media. Being that we’re a tech blog dedicated to providing extensive coverage of the Android Ecosystem, which is a “mobile” operating system, “Mobile” World Congress, is the main event match. We’re strongly dedicated to mobile computing and Android, hence why MWC gathers most of our attention. Much unlike what CES has become, which took place earlier this year, MWC is said to give way to many smartphones, even some 2018 flagships. This follows suite with previous years, though we won’t leave until we get some cool gadgets and smart-home gear to bring home as well. Thanks to past rumors, reports and leaks, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect at this year’s event.
MWC is one of the big trio (CES, MWC, IFA), and this year’s event is sure to bring some major headlines. We’re expecting products in all categories: wearables, smartwatches, smartphones, and gadgets. We will keep you posted throughout the week on all the most important reports. Samsung, who rarely ever skips the opportunity to attend an event of this caliber, will introduce new Galaxy S flagship smartphones, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, for a change in times at Unpacked 2018 to start things off for us on Sunday. LG will come at us with a re-envisioned LG V30 smartphone, Huawei could have new mid-rangers, Sony could showcase something curvy, and Google could make an appearance with Google Assistant news and announcements. Lenovo’s Motorola brand appears to have a collection of new premium mid-range G Series phones, Nokia could debut new Android phones as well, and Alcatel may have a few of its very own. Anticipate that most new products will become available this spring.
