What to watch out for at Mobile World Congress

Keanu Reeves in

The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2018 event will happen on february 25, 2018, in Barcelona, coinciding with the MWC 2018 trade show, according to the Samsung invite.

KitGuru Says: The Galaxy S8 ended up being a huge success, so I imagine the Galaxy S9 will also end up being well received, even if prices do rise a bit compared to past year. Other than that water and dust resistance, iris scanner, facial recognition and fingerprint sensor for security are nearly taken for granted.

Samsung has a massive weekend ahead as it readies itself to reveal the all-new Galaxy S9.

While in the United States and China, the phones are expected with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, in other regions they are expected to come with Exynos 9810 SoC.

Mobile World Congress, the wireless industry's biggest conference, begins next week in Barcelona, where more than 100,000 people are set to see the latest smartphones, artificial intelligence devices and autonomous drones exhibited by roughly 2,300 companies.

Spring is nearly here which means its nearly time for Samsung to release its latest Galaxy.

Some experts are predicting that the progress being made in 5G could prove to be a setback for devices and many potential buyers could be tempted to postpone purchase of a new smartphone until 2019 when it is expected 5G devices will hit the high-street.

In addition to better cameras, phone makers will focus on introducing bigger screens in mid-market devices, not just flagship ones, to try to boost their sales said Ian Fogg, senior director of mobile and telecom at IHS Markit. It is likely to launch with a price tag of 399 euros (~$492). Both the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ will come with a camera that has a variable aperture of F1.5-F2.4. And the phone is expected to look a bit like the iPhoneX, in the sense that it has a notch - not so much in terms of specs. We've even seen leaked photographs of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.

Samsung is expected to make a huge splash on Sunday evening with the launch of its new S9 devices.

The leak shows us a phone, believed to be the Nokia 1, and it is said to be in its last leg of circuit before arrival on to the public space.

We haven't heard too much about hardware other than smartphones for the show. The Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ will be the top-end Android phones from Samsung.

Samsung also began selling its smartphone unlocked right away previous year, and we fully expect that to happen again with an unlocked Galaxy S9 in the US. It is also likely for the S9 and S9+ to allow for 4K 60FPS video recording which is now only found on the 2017 iPhone lineup.

Nokia phones have been especially popular in India for the durability they come with.

Explaining further the unique features of the new product, LG said Vision AI automatically analyzes objects and recommends the best shooting mode from among eight modes: portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset. The device will run on Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box and will have a 3000mAh battery reservoir to fire up the Galaxy S9.
