The Mobile World Congress (a.k.a MWC) 2018, one of the biggest events in the mobile industry has just recently ended last Friday in Barcelona. As we look back at the festivities, MWC this year felt a little underwhelming, probably because Samsung stole the show before the event even officially began with the launch of the Galaxy S9. Nevertheless, the show still had its fair share of highlights that is worth talking about. Hence, below are some of the most notable handsets that were seen last week.
Samsung smartphones are typically recognised as being the best Android phones on the market. After weeks of speculations, the Galaxy S9 has officially been launched during the Samsung Unpacked event held ahead of the Mobile World Congress last Sunday. On paper, the device looks like the new flagship phone to beat, setting new benchmarks and world’s-firsts.
2017 has been a great year for South Korean smartphone manufacturers, Samsung as it managed to regain its reputation as the top brand in the industry with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 smartphones. The company is planning to leverage on the momentum it has built by releasing its next flagship, the Galaxy S9.
