The Mobile World Congress came and went and now that the dust has settled it’s time to take a look at some of the hottest topics of this very busy week.
We won’t be focusing as much on the phone launches of MWC 2019 here – you can check out ourcomprehensive list of all the new phones here.
The unveil of Sony’s 21:9 4K OLED Xperia 1 made huge waves this week and for good reason. It’s Sony’s first phone with a triple camera, it ushers in a whole new naming scheme and it’s the only device with such a screen.
Samsung announced its new-look A series with the Galaxy A10 as well as the Galaxy A50 and A30. The new Galaxy A series of phones will rely on big batteries and aggressive pricing to win back the midrange from Samsung’s Chinese rivals.
Speaking of, Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi Note 7 Pro with a 48MP camera and 128GB of onboard storage. Oh and remember Redmi President Lu Weibing’s campaign to show how tough and durable the Redmi Note 7 is? Well JerryRigEverything’s durability test showed quite the opposite – ouch!
Huawei didn’t show the P30 and P30 Pro at the MWC and instead will announce the duo in a month but we still saw a hands-on of the P30 Pro an detailed press renders of both plus a few rogue camera samples. It looks like the P30 and P30 Pro will have triple cameras, slimmer bezels and the latest Kirin 980 chipset.
Finally nubia showed a device that’s folded, if not exactly foldable – the nubia Alpha smartwatch-slash-phone.
See you in a week!
It’s a pretty long list that goes back to the Zenfone 4 series from 2017. A couple – the Zenfone 5 and 5z – are already on Pie.
The photos show a new 5G cell tower installed in Barcelona by Huawei and Vodafone. And they go up to 5x telephoto, 10x with digital zoom.
