Hottest and probably the Best Phones unveiled at MWC 2018
Every year dozens of phone companies show off their latest designs at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and this year was no exception. These were some of our favorites phones unveiled at MWC 2018
Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus
The 5.8 inch Samsung Galaxy S9 and 6.2 inch Samsung Galaxy S9 plus may look a lot like their predecessors but they have some important upgrades. For starters they fix the position of the fingerprint scanner. They now have a faster processor and software upgrades and a new way to unlock but the biggest improvement is in the camera which now has a variable aperture that adapts to different lighting conditions. Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus also got a second lens for better portraits and zoom.
Nokia 8 Sirocco
Nokia also delivered a premium flagship phone with a Nokia 8 Scirocco. A phone that may share the same name as last year’s model but raises the bar everywhere else. The curved edges and barely-there bezels make the look a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S9 but the screen is slightly smaller. Nokia 8 Sirocco has a Dual Lens setup like the Samsung Galaxy S9 plus
Nokia 8110 4G
Nokia brought back its popular slider phone Nokia 8110 from the 90s and gave it a refresh. It got a banana makeover a color screen and a battery petal goal for 20 days straight. And yes it does have snake. It’s the second revival of a classic Nokia phone Nokia 8110.
Sony Xperia XZ2 & XZ2 Compact
Sony with the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact. Both phones have been given a much needed design upgrade with slimmer bezels and a sleeker form factor. Both Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact share the same specs but the XZ2 has a 5.7 inch screen while the compact has a 5 Inch Display that’s easier to maneuver with one hand. The Rear Camera on both phones can shoot HDR video in 4k, a first for a phone and super slow-mo in full HD.
Worried about security? the android-powered SikurPhone could protect your Bitcoin fortune there’s a built-in cryptocurrency wallet inside the encrypted phone that the company says is hack proof.
Asus Zenfone 5
If you love the iPhone 10 but don’t love the price, the Asus Zenfone 5 is pretty close. It’s the spitting image of Apple’s 10th anniversary phone. It’s running Android and doesn’t have wireless charging but you’ll pay about half of what you pay for an iPhone 10 for Asus Zenfone 5.
Vivo Apex has an Edge to Edge Display and Dual fingerprint scanner that’s embedded inside the screen for added security and a selfie camera that pops up like a piece of toast and while this one is still a concept it gives us a glimpse into what’s coming to the next generation of phones.
