What's hot @ MWC 2018
In the world of technology, there are very few days that are as exciting as the time when Mobile World Congress takes place. If you are a tech geek then, without a doubt you were glued to the screen most of the time during the MWC2018. Starting from 5G to all-screen concept phone, this year's Mobile World Congress was sort of a roller coaster ride. We monitored the events closely, noted down all the significant product launches and all the big announcements. From all those stuff, we bring you the hottest smartphones unveiled at this year's MWC.
Nokia 8110 4G
The matrix phone by Nokia is back with a bang. And now it looks like a Banana. Nokia, which is owned by HMD, is trying to make a mark in the industry by bringing back the legendary models back. This time it's the 8110, which supports 4G by the way. It isn't a smartphone, but we really don't care. It's a novelty device that's a must-have for most.
Samsung Galaxy S9 series
Galaxy S9 series is the iteration of the much successful S8 series by Samsung. This flagship series, at a glance, doesn't look much different than its older brother. Except the back is a bit different and the device weighs a bit more. The newly ergonomically placed fingerprint sensor is below the camera, the powerful Exynos 9810 processor along with 6GB of RAM, the new camera – are some of the improvements in the S9 series. In Bangladesh, Samsung will only be selling S9+ (the bigger version).
Vivo Apex Concept
Vivo is one of the lesser known brands that generally don't get much attention during the Mobile World Congress. Not this year. This year Vivo has shown off a concept phone: Vivo Apex. This phone has a whopping 98 percent body to screen ratio. The phone also has a pop-on front facing camera. Although it's a concept phone, we expect to see it in production by end of May this year. If you are planning to buy this phone then start saving now. It won’t be cheap.
Sony Xperia XZ2 series
Sony Xperia XZ2 series is the successor to the Sony Xperia XZ1 series. The design of the Xperia phone hasn't changed much radically in the last couple of years. The XZ2 isn't any bit different: all are chunky, oversized and comes with a stunning display. The fingerprint has moved from power button to the back. Following the footsteps of Apple, XZ2 got rid of the 3.5mm jack.
LG V30S ThinQ
The LG V30S ThinQ isn't an all-new phone in terms of design or functionality. But if you are a blogger or armature videographer then you are bound to like the camera of this phone. Like all the Chinese vendors in the market, LG too has an AI to enhance the quality of the image. Like all the 'AIs'in the market, it is nothing but a marketing gimmick. The phone’s predecessors performed quite well in Bangladesh. Will this be a hit too? We will know soon.
ASUS Zenfone 5 series
Looking for an iPhone X copycat that won't put a dent in your wallet? Look no further, ASUS Zenfone 5 is here! At the MWC this year, ASUS launched two new phones: Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 5Z. Both have the notch of iPhone and the camera formation is identical to iPhone too. The ASUS is a bit bigger in size though and a bit lighter too compared to iPhone X. The phone is priced around USD 500. Meaning you get a iPhone X look alike for just one third of the price. Although the price in Bangladesh is not set yet, but experts predict it won’t be more than BDT 50k. We haven’t receive any confirmation yet, but probably this phone may be available somewhere around mid May.
Nokia 8 Sirocco
Packed with the best possible hardware, Nokia 8 Sirocco is the biggest, baddest phone in Nokia's arsenal right now. One might even say this phone is a Nokia 8 on steroids- thanks to its superb performance. The phone is a Nokia 8 on steroids- thanks to its superb performance. The main piece of hardware of the phone is Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 System on Chip. It also sports a pOLED display, which looks gorgeous , no doubt about that. But is it worth the hype? We will find out soon enough.
