After Samsung unveiled the new Galaxy S10 series and its first foldable smartphone in San Francisco, the action is now taking place at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona.
Known as MWC, it is an annual gathering of mobile phone manufacturers, wireless carriers and technology innovators from February 25 to February 28.
In the past, MWC was the platform to launch the latest mobile device but this year, the most attention will be towards the future of mobile phones.
The platform that GSMA has created in Barcelona will determine the type of device you will use in the near future, and more importantly, the types of networks you will connect to when it becomes commercially available.
5G will be at the center of every big conversation. Once, there was a situation that every man and his dog wanted to own a smartphone, and in the temporary future, every man and his dog would like to own a 5G smartphone.
When semiconductor manufacturers, modem makers and telecom operators push the 5G agenda forward, mobile manufacturers will try to explain why they should be part of the first wave and why they should buy 5G devices.
Here’s a look at everything we expect in 5G and 5G devices, foldable smartphones and MWC 2019.
5G will be everywhere, not just on your phone
Wherever you turn, there will be a 5G mark or some kind of brand for sale on the next generation mobile phone.
Samsung launched its first commercial 5G smartphone in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G on February 20 at the unpacked event.
At MWCT, smartphone makers like Huawei, LG and OnePlus are expected to detect or display a range of 5G devices.
Qualcomm sat in its driver’s seat when it came to 5G, and just days before its flagship MWC show, the company unveiled the Snapdragon X55 5G modem.
New solution for antenna modem that supports all types of spectrum and main range. If the smartphone maker had to supply the 5G smartphone now, they would have no choice but to go to Qualcomm to get their modem solution.
In fact, Qualcomm has outperformed its competitors in terms of technology and productivity speed, which has shown that it is forcing OEMs to be the first to be the second to the far-right, not at a growth stage.
The 5G commitment is expected by both consumers and the industry for some time to come
With 5G, consumers will finally test the speed of gigabit downloads and short video video playback, and virtual reality content is a seamless experience.
Any device with 5G will be able to communicate with each other.
Consider having your car communicate with a smart electric meter in your home, which will send commands to your refrigerator, which will turn the smart LED light on or off in your living room.
5G promises that this future will be very exciting.
In addition to Qualcomm, both Intel and MediaTek are competing for some share with the modem business, and are expecting the Bolong 5000 modem to be some good use at the Huawei show.
Verizon and AT&T in the United States, British Telecom in the UK and Europe and EE, SK Telecom, South Korea’s LG Upps and mainland China Mobile customers can offer 5G but countries like Canada and India are expected to miss the first wave.
The two things that can be discussed silently are the proposed ban on Huawei in the United States and its affiliates, and the use of fake 5G logos by U.S. telecommunications companies.
When upgrading your smartphone
People go to MWC with different expectations and one of the primary expectations is the new flagship smartphone.
Despite holding Samsung’s own event a few weeks before the flagship event at GSMA, it is not expected to disappoint this year. With Samsung’s phone feature, the Verti falls on Huawei, LG, Oppo, Xiaomi and Nokia to make the most of the speed.
Oppo will first provide its vision for mobile photography, followed by Xiaomi, LG and Nokia. Here’s what technology companies are expected to do this year.
Huawei recently abolished Apple as the world’s second-largest smartphone maker, and at MWDC 2019, it will also position itself as a technology lead.
The Chinese smartphone has already confirmed that the P30 series will arrive on March 26, and at MWCT it is expected to offer a foldable smartphone instead.
It is unclear whether Huawei’s foldable smartphone will be based on a double design or a triple design, which could outperform the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
But we do know that the company’s first foldable smartphone will be ready for the 5th generation network.
The company is hosting an event on February 27 at 2:30 pm CET (or 30. ২ PM IST) where it will display the first Balang 5000+ G modem and give a message that it has no inclination towards American competitors.
In the past, Oppo introduced MWC not as a smartphone maker but as most technology companies.
