MWC – Live from Barcelona, the Honor launch

Right now, right at this minute, we should be in Barcelona. We should, as in years past, be soaking up at least 5 minutes of sunshine as we queue to enter the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via. Sadly, it all got cancelled and we’re instead stood in the …

Mobile World Congress 2020 – CANCELLED.

The yearly Barcelona bash usually sees over 100,000 well-connected mobile minds getting together to launch services and devices, plus it’s a fantastic opportunity for businesses to collaborate, meet and demonstrate their products.

MWC – I have a funny feeling…

We’ve had yet another email this morning and Intel have now pulled out of the big Barcelona bash. The reason, once again, is the threat of the coronavirus. Our list of companies that are changing their commitment to the Mobile World Congress is now growing almost by the …

MWC – Samsung Galaxy Z Flip leakage

Twitter leaker @h0x0d has just given us a new look at the Z Flip and, well, you have to wonder about all these leaks. With a smaller MWC this year, phone manufacturers might be resorting to alternative methods to reveal their new handsets. Today it’s a rather weird …

MWC – Sony step back too

Mobile World Congress, the usually-massive mobile trade show in Barcelona, is getting quieter by the day as various exhibitors either ditch press briefings, reduce their attendance or cancel completely.

MWC – Huawei P30 Pro appears

A strange one this. The upcoming P30 Pro flagship, which hasn’t been launched, got shown off to Digital Trends today. However, there were a few caveats. First, they couldn’t take a photo of the front, second, it wasn’t actually the real device – it was actually a dummy …

MWC – Meet the nubia Alpha wearable phone

We’ve seen foldable phones in Barcelona, and – in years past (actually, it was 2016!) – we’ve seen flexible displays. The latter was actually first brought to our attention as a possible wearable by FlexEnable but they didn’t have the necessary capacity to make it a full-on production …

MWC – Up close. The Samsung Galaxy S10.

I’m kinda on the fence with the wide slit on the back of this thing. Sure, I like cameras and yes, all the phones here seem to be brimming with them, but the letterbox shape on the back is a bit distracting for me, especially with some of …

MWC – Up close. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3

So, 5G, right? For £499? Well, that’ll tick a few boxes with a lot of people methinks. The Mi Mix 3 is showing right now on the Mi.com site and she slides baby. She slides. That 6.39″ Full HD+ Samsung AMOLED has a 19.5:9 aspect at 2340 x …

MWC – Up close. The Xiaomi Mi 9

She’s got a waterdrop notch and will be available in lavender violet, ocean blue or a piano black. You’ll get yourself a transparent one too, and no matter how real or not real that whole CPU / NFC rear-end is, we still like staring at it like crazy. …
