Here are 3 smartphone launches you can expect at the MWC 2019

We can expect the Sony Xperia XZ4, LG G8/V50 ThinQ and the Huawei P30 to launch at the MWC 2019
  • Huawei will also launch a 5G-enabled foldable smartphone

    The Mobile World Congress (MWC) is one of the biggest technology events of the year. This year, it will be held between February 24 and 28 at Barcelona, Spain.

    Like every year, tech companies will meet in Barcelona to present their latest innovations. Here are three smartphones we can expect to be unveiled at the MWC 2019.

    Sony:

    Sony has a reputation of unveiling smartphones at the MWC. The flagship we'll be looking at this year would be the Xperia XZ4.

    Specifications of the XZ4 aren't out yet and the renders show the smartphone sporting a 6.5-inch display at the front with 21:9 aspect ratio. It might also not come with a notch and will have comparatively larger bezels, at least according to 2019 standards.

    The XZ4 is also expected to have a triple cam-setup at the back. Sony smartphones are known for having a single rear camera, so this will be a big upgrade. 

    Sony's press conference is set for February 25 at 8:30 am CET (01:00 pm IST) on Sunday 24 February.

    Sony often announces one or more new phones at MWC and the next flagship we're expecting is the Sony Xperia XZ4, so that may well make an appearance.

    LG:

    The LG will debut a smartphone on the first day of MWC, on February 24. LG hasn't mentioned the name of the smartphone, but it will most likely be the LG G8.

    LG did mention about a 5G phone launch at the event—one of which will have a 4,000mAh battery and a Snapdragon 855 chipset.

    According to some reports, this smartphone might not be the G8. Instead it might be the V50 ThinQ.

    LG has confirmed the presence of a ToF camera on this smartphone. The ToF camera will be designed by Infineon and will offer better low light performance, facial recognition times and augmented reality experience.

    Huawei:

    Huawei might take the covers off the Huawei P30 at the MWC 2019.

    Just like the others, specifications of the P30 are not out yet. However, Huawei’s CEO did say that it will be better than the P20 or the Huawei Mate 20.

    It's expected to have four rear cameras with Leica lenses with one of the sensors having a resolution of 38MP.

    It will most likely use the same Kirin 980 chipset found in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Honor View 20, but it might as well tweak it for 5G.

    We can also the expect the P30 to sport an in-display fingerprint scanner like the Mate 20 Pro.

    Huawei might also give Samsung a tough time by launch a 5G foldable phone at the tech expo.
