Huawei will showcase its Watch 2 smartwatch with Android Wear 2.0 and cellular capabilities. Samsung, on the other hand, has confirmed it will not launch its Galaxy S8 smartphone at MWC. Instead, Samsung’s next-generation of premium tablet Galaxy Tab S3 is expected to be unveiled in Barcelona.
MWC is one of the biggest smartphone events worldwide, where technology giants showcase their latest technology as well as launch new devices. This year, the biggest announcements could come in the form of LG’s flagship smartphone G6, BlackBerry Mercury with keypad as well as Moto G5 series.
Plus, MWC is increasingly becoming a platform for Chinese technology companies to showcase their products. Last year, we saw Xiaomi announce its flagship smartphone Mi 5 at the Mobile World Congress.

Oppo is preparing to showcase its new 5x smartphone photography, whcih the company claims will give users unprecedented ability to capture highly detailed images.
