Nokia, Samsung, Asus, or Moto: Who Will Win MWC 2018?

Nokia cements its place

Another smartphone rumoured to launch at Mobile World Congress is the Nokia 7 Plus.

While there is no official confirmation as of now, Sony is expected to launch the Xperia XZ2 flagship smartphone at their February 26 MWC event. Did I mention devices?

2017 was HMD's most successful year ever as Nokia phones sales soar. In the past, BlackBerry's revealed phones outside of MWC, while services are included within. Perhaps the HTC U11 Eyes previously only out in China? But LG executives were with the G7 prototypes because it lacked attractive selling points, which means the G7 launch has been delayed. They've release major collections of smartphones at MWC in the past, and there's no reason to doubt they would this year, too. We're not just looking forward to seeing the Samsung Galaxy S9 duo or the next-gen Sony Xperia XZ2. If leaks and rumours are anything to go by, the Asus ZenFone 5 is set to be Android's answer to the iPhone X - literally.

From the leak, the new Nokia phone is expected to feature a full-screen design and a display that comes with an aspect ratio of 18:9.

The event officially runs from February 26 to March 1 year, but numerous biggest announcements will take place in press conferences on Sunday, February 25.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 might be one of the biggest stars of the show. Those two phones alone have generated more hype in the several months before now than any other brand.

Google will be in attendance showing off Android Go and Android One phones made by third-party partners. But then, let's wait to hear more from Nokia. It is expected to feature a 4.5-inch HD display, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage and 4G LTE.

Huawei may bring some tablet and/or notebook action to MWC.

The Huawei P11 or P20, as reports are now calling it, is rumored to be debuting later this year, leaving many questions as to what the third largest smartphone maker will unveil at the event.

Motorola will most likely unveil the new Moto G smartphones at MWC. Geekbench revealed some benchmarks - but that's about it. LG has also confirmed that the new V30 version will have a new dual camera setup with wide-angle, low-distortion lenses. It's called the ARCHOS Citee Connect, and it's got Android inside. Both the devices would include an 8MP front camera, but the S9 Plus would have better camera specs on the back.

In addition to what you see below, we'll be reporting on more devices than you can handle over the next few days. It's going to be madness. You can watch a live stream of the event here. We might also get to see an updated version of the company's Xperia Ear, if only because Sony has a solid track record of turning its wacky concepts into real products. "The fixed-mobile convergence theme is back big time".

In its place was an aggressive, board-banging, theft-happy Portland D that amassed five steals in the game's first nine minutes. It means they won't have much time to stew over their worst game in weeks. "We'll come back ready tomorrow", Ingles promised.
