MWC 2018 – What to Expect From Samsung Galaxy S9 and ASUS Zenfone 5

The Barcelona platform, where the Mobile World Congress 2018 would get underway, is set to have a Nokia event.

HMD Globals is also going to launch Nokia 8 sirocco sporting a 5.5 inch display with QHD resolution 3D glass OLED display.

The company is also said to follow the new trend that has been adopted by Apple for the new iPhones and Google for the Pixel smartphones - no headphone jack.

Even as Nokia enthusiasts have been waiting to know, a leak doing the rounds on the web has given them a sneak peek on two phones made by the company.

One of the biggest MWC 2018 launches will, undoubtedly, be the Samsung Galaxy S9 series. Android Authority cites @evleaks indicating "the handset is tipped to house dual front- and rear-facing cameras, coming in at 20 MP + 20 MP and 16 MP + 16 MP respectively".

People in the industry have estimated that the factory price of the 64-gigabyte version of the Galaxy S9 smartphone could be 957,000 won (US$890).

Explaining further the unique features of the new product, LG said Vision AI automatically analyzes objects and recommends the best shooting mode from among eight modes: portrait, food, pet, landscape, city, flower, sunrise, and sunset. Sources close to the matter said that the device will be a premium variant of the Nokia 8, and will feature the Snapdragon 845 processor, NokiaPowerUser reported. Both are expected to be extremely similar in design and feature set to the Infinity Display-covered Galaxy S8, with a few notable improvements.

On the other hand, according to the photo shared by a commenter on the Xperia Blog, the purported Xperia XZ2 Compact is placed next to an Xperia Z5 Compact. It is likely that the Nokia 8 Pro is designed for professional use, particularly for photographers due to its penta-lens rear camera module.

Sony always comes to MWC with new phones in tow, and this year will be no exception. The device is also rumored to be powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage space.

Xiaomi might just introduce an impressive smartphone during Mobile World Congress, called the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S. Leaving aside the bezel measurements, we need to expect the Nokia 1 to sport a screen size of around 5 inches. Running Android Oreo, the device will be backed up by a 3400mAh battery. Since Sony has a track record of delaying the India launch of these phones, we expect the same this year too, but we can't predict when the devices will actually come here. Certain firmware files are suggesting that the new smartphone might pack in a Sony IMX363 sensor as well. The capacity of RAM will be from 6 to 8 GB and internal - from 64 to 128 GB. The Moto G6 is expected to bear a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC and 3000mAh.
