Mobile World Congress (MWC) is all set to kick off today, February 25. A few companies just couldn’t wait to showcase their hard work, so they launched the products just a day ahead of the MWC in Barcelona. Here’s everything interesting that was launched a day before MWC 2019.
Nokia 9 PureView
Nokia has collaborated with Light to bring out the first smartphone to sport a total of five cameras at the back. The company has also worked with Qualcomm and Google to optimise the camera set up in order to bring out its full potential. The smartphone is powered by last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.
On the optics front, the Nokia 9 PureView comes with a penta camera setup. The setup includes three 12-megapixel monochrome sensors and two 12-megapixel RGB sensors. Up front, there is a 20-megapixel selfie shooter.
Huawei Mate X
While Samsung recently unveiled its first foldable smartphone, the Samsung Fold, Huawei also revealed a competition. The company is calling its first foldable smartphone the Huawei Mate X. The smartphone comes with a 6.6-inch dual display panel, which when unfolded becomes an 8-inch display. It is powered by the company’s own Kirin 980 processor paired with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. Under the hood, there is a 4,500mAh dual battery with support for a new superfast charging that reaches 85 percent battery in just 30 minutes.
Huawei Mate X is really expensive as it comes with a price tag of EUR 2,299 (roughly Rs. 1,85,000).
LG G8 ThinQ
LG has also launched its latest flagship smartphone, the LG G8 ThinQ. The smartphone looks quite old now as it comes with a notch up front and a capacitive fingerprint scanner at the back. However, it does have a few other tricks up its sleeve. The phone comes with HandID, which scans your veins in order to unlock the phone. The phone also comes with Air Motion, which can be used to launch apps or skip a song with just hand gestures.
