Nokia, Samsung, Asus, or Moto: Who Will Win MWC 2018?

On this episode, we discuss the leaks and rumours around MWC 2018 and look at what you can expect from one of the biggest tech events of the year. Reviewers Roydon Cerejo and Aditya Shenoy join host Pranay Parab to talk about launches from Samsung, Nokia, Sony, LG, Asus, and Lenovo. We begin the episode by talking about Samsung, where we discuss the Galaxy S9 and S9+, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, the DeX 2 dock, smartwatches, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4.

Then we talk about the launches expected from Asus, including the iPhone X lookalike, Asus’ confusing lineup of phones, and the Android Go phone. Next, we discuss Nokia’s MWC presence, which could include 1, 4, 8, 9, and perhaps even the 3310 4G. We talk about the budget Android smartphone market and where Nokia stands in that apart from the company’s efforts in the feature phone segment. We then move to LG and its K series phones, the V30 upgrade, and when we can expect a new LG G series smartphone. 

Finally, we talk about other big launches expected at MWC 2018, including Sony XZ series, Huawei Matebook, Huawei’s smartwatches, and last but not the least, Moto G series phones. We talk about how each of these phones could be relevant in the coming year and whether these will make it to India anytime soon.
