MWC 2018: what to expect

At Mobile World Congress 2018, Nokia is expected to launch its Nokia 1, Nokia 9, Nokia 7 plus and Nokia 4 smartphones.

The LG V30, first released in September 2017, is the company's latest premium smartphone and boasts a top-notch camera and audio capabilities. Mobile World Congress begins in less than a week, and with it we expect a bunch of new launches.

Reports suggest this new flagship device, the Nokia 9, could sport a futuristic display along with a revamped camera module and an improved camera setup.

The Nokia 9 will most likely be the high-end flagship device by the company. The display will be 5.5 inches, with curved sides.

Phone Arena, a website for new phone information, said last month that the Samsung Galaxy S9's main camera will allow users to change the aperture of the lens, citing a leaked image of what may be the Galaxy S9's retail box. The launch and success of Nokia 3310 come as a certification to this belief. Interestingly, two other Nokia phones may also share the spotlight during the event, namely, the Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 4. The leak further cemented the existence of the Nokia 4. The smartphone is also rumoured to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor. The report does point out that the device might not make its way to China as the number is considered unlucky. The phone might get dual cameras on the front as well as the back of the phone. These are the same battery capacities, which we present in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ as well.

This updated V30 will also get a slew of new voice commands for Google Assistant, marking the first time a smartphone maker has cooked up custom Assistant commands.

Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be powered up by a Snapdragon 845 Octa-Core in the United States, while an Exynos Octa-Core will power up the European models. The device is expected to feature Snapdragon 845 SoC, which will be among the most powerful SoCs in the market for 2018.

On the other hand, according to the photo shared by a commenter on the Xperia Blog, the purported Xperia XZ2 Compact is placed next to an Xperia Z5 Compact.

Sony always comes to MWC with new phones in tow, and this year will be no exception. As per leaks, the new smartphone is now codenamed "polaris" and will include the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. It features a full-screen design and a display with the aspect ratio of 18:9. Namely, MateBooks running Windows 10, and MediaPads running Android.

The new smartphones related to Sony's flagship have been somewhat controversial, lately.

Lenovo-owned Motorola does not have an event slated during MWC 2018; however, previous reports have claimed that the company is expected to unveil its latest Moto G6 lineup. The capacity of RAM will be from 6 to 8 GB and internal - from 64 to 128 GB.
