Highlights from Mobile World Congress 2018


Mobile World Congress 2018, the world’s premier showcase for upcoming smartphones and mobile technology, is currently underway at Fira de Barcelona in Barcelona, Spain.

Mobile World Congress, or MWC as it’s commonly abbreviated, is an excellent opportunity for the world’s biggest smartphone manufacturers to show off their new devices and this year’s event so far has been no different.

We talked yesterday about the Samsung Galaxy S9 and in today’s blog we’re going to look at some of the other big announcements from Mobile World Congress 2018 so far.

Sony Xperia XZ2

Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium was voted the best smartphone of last year’s MWC but it remains to be seen if this year’s entry will prove as popular as the XZ Premium.

It’s got a gorgeous 5.7-inch FHD HDR 18:9 display that gives the Galaxy S8’s ‘infinite display’ a run for its money and is packed with some seriously cool features including 960fps super-slow-motion video recording, 4K HDR recording, Surround Sound and a powerful 19MP rear camera capable of taking incredibly detailed pictures.

While it would be difficult to beat last year’s Xperia XZ Premium in the popularity stakes, the Sony Xperia XZ2 is another big step in the right direction for Sony.

It goes on sale in Europe from the end of March.

Nokia 7+

Nokia launched a couple of new phones during the company’s special event at this year’s MWC including a new budget smartphone and an updated version of the beloved Nokia 8110, but it was the Nokia 7+ that really caught our eye.

It’s a mid-range smartphone that doesn’t skimp on features and comes with a sharp and colourful 6-inch FHD+ screen, a dual camera on the rear with 12MP and 13MP sensors, a 10MP selfie camera, 4GB of RAM and a 3800mAh battery.

All in all the Nokia 7+ appears to be a pretty impressive mid-range smartphone that offers plenty of bang for your buck.

It goes on sale in Europe from April.
