Mobile World Congress 2021: What about the mobile display?

by - – The Mobile World Congress (MWC) is the year’s largest mobile event. The show features the introduction of many of the best Smartphones, smartwatches and tablets of the year as well as the development of the newest mobile trends, such as 5G.

In addition, in many sectors, it draws on the future of mobile technology, such as 5G, mobile hardware, VR or other associated technologies.

All you need to know about the show, here’s.

When is the World Mobile Congress?

  • MWC Barcelona: 28 June-1 July 2021

In 2021, the fair will take place between 28 and 1 June 2021, and is delayed from the usual slots of February-March.

A physical event is expected in Barcelona by the GSMA. There will be safety measures such as madatory face masks and social distance, but vaccination will not be an obligation. Various leading brands have announced their withdrawal.

What is the Mobile World Congress 2021 scheduled for launch?

This is the question of the million dollars. In any ordinary year, some leading mobile phone manufacturers would be launching a series – typical MWCs for Sony Mobile and Nokia are using MWC to launch new devices, often large displays like Qualcomm or Samsung.

Usually we’re supposed to have a long list of devices, but we don’t realize that will happen in 2021. The show will very much depend on the pandemic status both globally and in the country itself; in short, a great deal of uncertainty is likely to exist, but it has not, as IFA 2020 in Berlin has shown, been possible to hold some events.

  • Announcements start 23 June

Lenovo confirmed that something will be shown and that it will start on 23 June – before MWC starts

Oral B at MWC 2021

  • 28 June, 16:00 CEST

Oral B has confirmed that it is hosting a MWC 2021 event where a showcase is held and a panel or expert will be held to discuss oral health.

Brands withdrawn

But it is easier to confirm those companies who have resigned from the physical show: We do not want to be pessimistic.

  • Samsung
  • Sony Mobile
  • Nokia
  • Google
  • Qualcomm
  • Ericsson
  • Facebook

Some of the big names are here: Sony and Nokia typically start up the show’s devices. Usually Samsung has to show something new. The area between the showrooms is normally dominated by Google, while Qualcomm always has an ample stand.

However, these companies will still participate virtually. This is not the end of the Mobile World Congress and we shall most likely be seeing a number of announcements around the show time, partly because they fit into launch cycles for brands, partly to stick to a specific schedule and partly show solidarity.

What we could get exactly has become very vague when it comes to consumer launches. Pocket-lint won’t be at the 2021 Mobile World Congress, but we will bring all of our ads to you as usual.
