Mobile World Congress 2019 – Key Highlights

So, the most awaited event of the smartphone industryMobile World Congress 2019 just got over in Barcelona and we are sure all of you would want to know the key highlights. While some of the announcements were in sync with what we had predicted in one of our blog smartphone-trends-to-watch-out-for-in-2019/ , few were news to us. Nokia, Oppo, Huawei, LG, let’s take a glimpse on who announced what?

  1. Huawei released a sophisticated Mate X – foldable phone – With an 8 inch single large flexible OLED display which looks like a better version of the just released Samsung Galaxy Fold. Mate X is sleek and refined with a patented hinge technology that allows a comfortable movement for the display. Though Mate X manages to steal the limelight in the folded phones category but in a price sensitive country like India, cost could be a big deterrent we feel. (Rs 1.86,000)
  2. Nokia is trying to make its foray into the smartphone industry over the last two years and in this MWC 2019, it finally launched the Nokia 9 Pureview, a phone with 5 (penta) cameras. While that sounds a little too much but people would love the multitude of wide-angle and zoom optics that the phone offers.  So, get ready for that best quality shot you have been striving for but at a price of Rs 50,000. Who all are interested?
  3. Though Oppo didn’t announce a new model during MWC but yes, the announcement of a handset with 10X zoom technology made ripples in the industry. Expected to launch in the next quarter, a phone with such kind of zoom will help you click any distant object with great ease. So, next time you are on a holiday wanting to capture the distant snow covered mountains or the architectural beauty of a monument or watching a Premier League match, you could actually zoom in and capture them in a click with almost 73% image precision. Not bad!!
  4. After using a lot of inbuilt fingerprint scanners, it is time to move on to Hand ID scanner. Simply hold your hand above the sensor and lift it up slowly, and the phone unlocks. How? By reading the veins in your palm. So, this hard to hack technology was announced by LG in their new phone LG G8 Thin Q during the MWC 19. Awesome, right!
