MWC 2016 schedule of events, and how to follow our coverage like a boss

That MWC starts in just a couple of days is something you're surely aware of. Especially with our feed being loaded with news – news revolving around the event and all the announcements expected to be made there. But that's expected, as Mobile World Congress is the year's biggest, most important exhibition dedicated to mobile technology. And both major and minor tech companies will use the opportunity to show off their latest creations. Exciting stuff indeed!

Now, we know from experience that MWC is an event of grandiose proportions, and keeping track of the news flow can be hard. Unless you know what happens when – that will put you right on top of the MWC game. The schedule of MWC events below should do the trick.

In addition to that, you might want to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus to have every bit of news we post sent straight to your feed. We'll be posting additional content from the show floor as well – cool demos, booth tours, or just our crew goofing around in beautiful Barcelona. Another trick you should be aware of is the option to filter the PhoneArena news feed using the MWC2016 tag. Or if you're feeling too lazy for that, worry not, as we'll be doing recap posts after each day of the show.

With that out of the way, let us move on to the MWC 2016 event schedule.

Sunday, February 21

LG Press Conference
2:00PM CET | 8:00AM Eastern | 5:00AM Pacific


LG is expected to start MWC with a bang by announcing a new flagship Android smartphone. The LG G5, as it is expected to be called, will likely be the star of the company's press conference, but other minor announcements could be made at the event as well. You can catch up on the latest LG G5 rumors right here.

Huawei Press Conference
2:00PM CET | 8:00AM Eastern | 5:00AM Pacific


Huawei's press conference is expected to bring us several new devices, including a Windows 10 tablet and possibly the rumored Huawei P9 smartphone. The event is still shrouded in mystery, but it won't be long until we get to try Huawei's latest toys.

Samsung Press Conference
6:00PM CET | 12:00PM Eastern | 9:00AM Pacific


At least two new phones are rumored to be coming at Samsung's press event. These are the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, which we think we know a lot about already. The rumor mill is to blame for that, as images and specs of the two handsets have been exposed multiple times over the past few days. Take a look at the latest Galaxy S7 rumors if you're curious.

Sony Press Conference
8:30AM CET | 2:30AM Eastern | 11:30PM Pacific (previous day)


We know that Sony has something to show us on Monday, but we're not exactly sure what to expect. It seems too early for an Xperia Z5 successor, but with Sony, you never know what surprises might be in store. Also, we will not be surprised if a new Xperia tablet is made official at the show.

Gionee Product Announcement
2:00PM CET | 8:00AM Eastern | 5:00AM Pacific


Gionee is one of the companies we rarely mention, but we will give it some attention during MWC. Its latest smartphone, the Gionee Elife P8, is scheduled to be announced at the MWC show floor. What we're expecting is a device focused heavily on the camera experience.

Acer Press Conference
6:00PM CET | 12:00PM Eastern | 9:00AM Pacific


Acer is known for its value-driven products – phones, tablets, laptops, and everything in between. This year, however, the company is rumored to be readying a virtual reality headset. That aside, we don't know for sure what to expect at Acer's event, but we'll surely take a close look at whatever gets announced.

Yeah good luck on your exams. You can always stay off the internet until they are done and then enjoy the MWC presentations fresh on YouTube.

Poor Sony. They should've scheduled their unveiling before Samsung.. After the s7 unveiling, I don't think people would be too keen to see what Sony has up their sleeve. And for LG, their time of glory would last just a couple of hours before Samsung takes it.

Hm, why
The edge as a bigger battery to start with to cover the battery damage over time, and they also offer a wiresless battery case, that looks good and is ip68

With lg, you got a way smaller battery to start with and the big removing battery is to big with that lg end, it also as its all metal you also need a case, also I be thinking there will be hardware problems as lg as mangled to do it with way more basic designs from the lg G3 and 4

I.e. No checkmate

I would add the Oppo conference on the 23rd where the Find9 might, but is unlikely to be presented, the HP conference, and the new moto E and Elife S8 :)

With all these leaks on these websites, it's a miracle anyone's still attending that MWC.

WHAT NO MIcrosoft Press event. Last year at least Mr Elop came with the MS Lumia 640 and 640 XL.I guess people wil visit their both to touch the MS 650 at least. hmm the now old MS Lumia 640 is selling OK as a cheap Windows smart phone these days with specs that are not bad for their price
