Samsung and Nokia

To the disappointment of fans, the long awaited Galaxy S8 will be absent from Mobile World Congress. According to reliable sources, Samsung will present S8 on March 29, during an event in New York, followed by a global release on April 21. The smartphone will have a new generation Samsung Exynos processor, 6GB of RAM and will be available in two versions: 5.8 inch and 6.2 inch display.Nokia returns and its presence at Mobile World Congress cannot go unnoticed. The company has scheduled a press conference for February 26 and the new Nokia P1 will be presented. This smartphone comes with the latest generation of Snapdragon 835 processor and a 5.3 inch screen. Another surprise could be the launch of the legendary Nokia 3310.

Huawei and HTC

Although there are many rumors about the launch of Huawei P10 and P10 Plus, this is unlikely. Last year, Huawei has focused on the launch of the Matebook, a convertible Windows laptop, but unfortunately, this year Huawei will not launch a super smartphone.

HTC has already announced the launch of U Ultra HTC, while rumors continue about the 10 HTC successor.

U Ultra HTC will apparently be the flagship for HTC, suggesting that the smartphone will resemble with Samsung.

The future looks bright

It remains to be seen what device will impress with the look and performance and remain as thin as possible. In the last years, the smartphone industry has presented an impressive economic growth. Many of the smartphones we see today, several years ago seemed just a fantasy: a device so thin capable of performing demanding operations.
