What to expect at MWC 2018 from Samsung, Nokia, Sony and more


The new flagship phone is predicted to be the highlight of the show, however with all the recent leaks, Samsung may not be able to bring the surprise factor. But the company started selling it's smartphones globally only in the second half of 2017.

Analysts expect to hear more on how the technology can be deployed beyond the autonomous vehicles at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang or connected refrigerators, and how carriers can turn 5G - which requires massive investments - into hard cash.

UFC on Fox 28 results, highlights -- Stephens vs. Emmett: Updates, fight card
And with Mike Perry opening the card against Max "Pain" Griffin, you could expect the violence to come early and often. With the one recorded knockdown in the fight, Stephens ties Anderson SIlva's UFC record of 18 career knockdowns.

The big topics, as with many conferences in the a year ago or so, are going to be 5G, AI and IoT. Every year, the world's biggest smartphone manufacturers (apart from Apple) descend on Barcelona to announce their shiny new phones.

Samsung Galaxy S9 might be the most-hyped device to be unveiled at the event, but we may also see several other budget and mid-budget smartphone, including the Moto G6 series, the Moto E5 series, Nokia 1 and Android One phones. It is a smart move since it will ensure that it's announcements are not overshadowed by that of Samsung. The company could halt production of the existing Nokia 3 and it could be replaced by the Nokia 4. Fans shouldn't expect physical design enhancements though. In the while, HMD Global has been slated its launch event on February 25th, which is just one day ahead of the MWC event.

Broncos QB Trevor Siemian reportedly on the trading block in Denver
He started 14 games that season, throwing for 3,401 yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions and posting an 8-6 record. Sessler has even suggested that Denver will likely have to release him if they can not find a willing trade partner.

HMD Global, the company who now owns the rights to launch Nokia-branded devices, is reportedly planning to launch the Nokia 8 Pro later this year, most likely in August or September.

Aside from its camera capability, the Nokia 8 Pro supposedly comes with a glass and metal design too, much like the rumoured Nokia 9.

Canadians Seal Gold and Silver in Ladies' Ski Cross
Two Canadians reached the Olympic podium in women's ski cross on February 23 at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang . Thompson isn't sure if her ski landed on another racer's or if it was the other way around. "It is very cool", she said.

Google recently confirmed that it will come up with Android Go smartphones at the MWC 2018 tech show. But now we have new information + high quality renders of the Nokia 7 Plus. Regardless, it is expected to feature some revolutionary features, including a Penta-lens camera and a rotating Zoom tech that was introduced by Zeiss. It will have a rear mounted fingerprint sensor and could be priced around Rs 30,000. The only major change between Nokia 8 and this updated model will be the 18:9 display and jump to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The handset might sport a 5.1-inch full HD display and come with 19-megapixel rear camera, plus a 13-megapixel lens for selfies. The ambition for device-makers is that as the products become more powerful, smaller and lighter, VR use cases will mushroom, luring a greater part of the population to actually buy them. VR devices have been around at MWC for a few years now, but they largely continue to occupy the enthusiast video-gamer niche. If leaks and rumours are anything to go by, the Asus ZenFone 5 is set to be Android's answer to the iPhone X - literally.
