Huawei also plans to hold another major hardware event in Paris after the MWC on March 25, where it will unveil the next iteration of its P-series (P30) phone line for consumers obsessed with design. and the quality of the camera.

A week after Samsung, Huawei, the world's second-largest phone maker in terms of sales volume after the South Korean technology giant, also plans to introduce a 5G folding smartphone at a press conference at tomorrow's MWC.

Although the technical details are rare, it is probably powered by the company's current flagship processor, the Kirin 980 used in the Mate 20 series and by a locally developed 5G modem, the Balong 5000, which is faster than the Qualcomm 5G modem (X50). equip most 5G smartphones this year.

The design of the Mate X was leaked on a banner banner being installed in the MWC and reveals a single foldable screen, while the Samsung Galaxy Fold has two screens, a small one at the front and a large flap at the inside the deployed device. . The settings of the triple camera and the fingerprint reader are housed in a side frame that allows the screen to have very thin bevels and without notches.

The South Korean electronics company will present the MWC with a series of smartphones, including two midrange devices (Q60 and K50) and two flagship devices, the V50 ThinQ 5G and G8 ThinQ.

With the v50, LG could be one of the first smartphone manufacturers to offer a 5G-compatible phone on the market, alongside Huawei and Samsung.

The design of the two flagship products is very similar: a small notch at the top, a considerable "chin" at the bottom of the device and a fingerprint reader at the back, the two main differences being the three rear cameras. for the V50 (versus two in the G8) and a vibrating screen in the G8 that serves as a speaker.

Nokia smartphones, manufactured under license by HMD Global, have made a tremendous comeback over the last two years, from ashes to one of the top ten smartphone brands in the world.

At MWC, HMD will present the Nokia 9 PureView with no less than five rear cameras. It will work with Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon processor from last year (845). It includes a fingerprint reader on the screen and two large frames at the top and bottom of the device, which is a little disappointing.

The Finnish start-up will also present three inexpensive phones (4.2, 3.2, 1 Plus), which are hardware updates of existing lines.

Nubia α


The ZTE lifestyle brand should feature a folding Nubia α phone on the wrist, as well as a wristwatch or watch.

The specifications of the phone are not yet well known, but it seems that the OnePlus 5G phone will have a full screen design without a notch and that the selfie camera will appear inside the device, as what sister company Vivo did with Vivo Nex S, or include a second smaller screen at the back, similar to Nubia X.

Sony Xperia 1


In desperate need of renovation, the Japanese electronics giant will launch four new Xperia mobile phones at the MWC, including the flagship Xperia 1, the Xperia 10 Plus and 10 Mid-Range and the low end Xperia L3.

Unfortunately, in terms of design, these phones are disappointing with much larger glasses than their competitors and nothing more to really differentiate themselves from the cluttered smartphone market, aside perhaps from the 4K HDR video recording capability in the 21: 9 format. Xperia 1.

Xiaomi 5G


The Chinese company is expected to officially introduce a 5G version of its Mi Mix 3 full-screen smartphone, present at the Qualcomm booth at CES 2019, and equipped with a sliding mechanism to open the selfie camera from inside the device.

Xiaomi will also present a prototype of its foldable phone, as well as the Mi 9 inch 6.4 inch launched in China last week and featuring the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, a small tear-off slot, a fingerprint reader on the screen, Three rear cameras, ultra fast loading.
