Serving as a ladder so that mobile technology manufacturers (with the exception of Apple’s friends) have the opportunity to launch the most recent ones that they have to offer to the market and give an advance of new technologies, for example from the 5G networks and devices for RV (Virtual Reality).
What are the things we can expect for the next edition of the MWC? This is a small compilation of what you could expect from the main manufacturers in the world of smartphones and also mobile technology devices.

This giant has confirmed that it will be at MWC 2019 in Barcelona. Having a previous conference on February 24 the CEO of the company Satya Nadella, will attend to present several innovations being in focus of many, the new augmented reality glasses.
How can we get to this assumption? In the invitation sent to the media it is indicated that Alex Kipman will be present at the event. Being one of the most responsible for HoloLens as well as being involved in the development of the new version. Additionally, he has previously worked with the Kinect, a motion sensor that saw light with the Xbox 360 but unfortunately did not have much impact.
It will be an important date for Microsoft, not only because of the possible presentation of the HoloLens 2, but also because it means its return to the expo held in Barcelona. Since the company stopped making terminal presentations when it decided to stop development plans with the Windows Phone operating system.
Huawei and its P30 device
Huawei has announced a press conference for Sunday February 24 in the MWC, so we can presume that the launch of this new terminal is made in the expo. What can we expect about this equipment? That has a fingerprint reader integrated into the screen. On the other hand, I’m sure I’ll use the same Kirin 980 chipset that the Mate 20 Pro already uses. Although there are analysts from the technology sector who predict the release of a 5G network folding terminal with surprise.
LG Technology ‘Goodbye Touch’
LG has posted a teaser on YouTube to officially notify what it will present on February 24, days before the event starts. A new terminal with a new GUI, which would allow us to manipulate the screen without touching it. (Presuming that it can be controlled with gestures)
The manufacturer would also take advantage of the event to present its first terminal with 5G networks. The team would be known with the extensive name of LG V50 ThinQ 5G. Something that could play against this device would be its high cost.

Additionally, they will show us a flexible phone, adding in this way to companies like Huawei or Samsung, which have ventured into folding devices.
