We have arrived in Barcelona for MWC 2018!

We have arrived in Barcelona for MWC 2018!
Meet this year's MWC team:
Rado Slavov, Victor Hristov, Nick Todorov, and John Velasco.

Many are the reasons to visit Barcelona for a week. The extraordinary architecture and numerous landmarks, blending the Gothic style with modern design, make this city a pleasure to get lost in. The pristine beaches span for miles and bring millions of tourists yearly. The abundance of delicious seafood and tapas restaurants make it a heaven for foodies. And the list goes on. 

We, however, were brought to this sparkling Mediterranean city by something a little bit outside those lines. Mobile World Congress is one of the year's most significant mobile tech events, and beautiful Barcelona has been its host since 2006. It is a forum of epic proportions, and almost all of the world's biggest smartphone makers will be present to show off their latest products. You can count on us to bring you the hottest MWC news and announcements -- straight from the spot!

But what's going to be announced, anyway? Well, we're pretty sure that Samsung has something truly exciting to show us -- the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. The company's latest flagship phones will bring numerous improvements over last year's models, including a "reimagined" camera experience. Just don't expect them to be cheap. Rumor has it that the two may hover closely to the $1000 mark with their pricing.

Samsung, however, won't be the only brand under the spotlight. In all likeliness, Sony will bring at least two new smartphones to MWC -- the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact, as leaks have revealed. Judging by the latest leaks, Sony is about to introduce a new design approach for its flagship phone, entering into 18:9 territory. At the same time, the Compact is expected to bring the high-end features found on the flagship XZ2, but packed in a physically smaller package, like the name implies.

And these are just some of the many smartphone announcements we expect to witness at MWC. LG, Nokia, BlackBerry, Huawei, Asus, Moto, ZTE, and Alcatel are also among the brands that will be present at the show, so you can rest assured that the next few weeks will be full of exciting news. Until then, feel free to catch up on the latest rumors and expectations, collected in our roundups below.

Nice looking forward to the coverage. See if you can spot the Samsung Tab 4 10.5" tablet posters? If the rumours are true?

Are all those guys from the same country. Their names end with 'ov' which is quite interesting.

Problem is we already know almost everything about all the releases at MWC. The leak stuff the last couple of years has just got out of hand, it's not just the leakers but the OEM's as well, dripping small snippets out to drum up hype. It's basically free marketing. Might be just me but i'm the type of person that likes to be suprised.

Going to hate Samsung Galaxy S9/+ for sure because of their hefty prices. Insignificant phones from least likely companies will become a new love for smartphones enthusiast. Well, the MWC cycle continues in this year 2018.
