Nokia 1, Nokia 7 renders & specifications leaked online

Nokia 1, Nokia 7 renders & specifications leaked online

Every product here is independently selected by Mashable journalists. If you are well known of the present-gen flagships by firms, you might have seen that this function has been removed in them. Not only will the new V30 know to fire up food mode when you're snapping photos of your lunch - you'll be able to ask it to snap the photo, too. As per leaks, the new smartphone is now codenamed "polaris" and will include the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.

Some experts are predicting that the progress being made in 5G could prove to be a setback for devices and many potential buyers could be tempted to postpone purchase of a new smartphone until 2019 when it is expected 5G devices will hit the high-street. A lot of them.

Samsung always makes a splash with its pre-MWC press conference the Sunday before the event, and this year should be no different. There's more than just phones: There will be dozens of smartwatches, tablets, and drones debuted at MWC, as device makers push wearables.

The new Nokia 7 plus smartphone will be powered by the Snapdragon 660 processor, which is as of now a China exclusive processor.

Recently, Apple has wowed the world with its latest iPhone, and now Samsung is all geared up to amaze the world with its latest phone Galaxy S9.

Nokia was at the centre of things at Mobile World Congress earlier in 2017.

Huawei also has an event on February 25, but we don't know what, exactly, the company will unveil.

Naturally, there's no way to verify the accuracy of this information at this point, but it sure seems to confirm what all the other recent Galaxy S9 leaks have said.

Still, previous rumors claim Huawei is about to launch the P20, which will be a big leap from its current flagship, the P10, and not only in name. 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". Speaking of the Mi 6X, the phone is said to be powered by the Surge S2 chipset, which might also debut at MWC. Simon explains LG is expected to update its phone, the V30S, while Sony is rumored to be revealing a new, curved phone.

China's Alcatel will have an event on February 24, where it's likely to show three new smartphones.

Yonhap News Agency reported Wednesday that LG is planning to release the LG V30s smartphone in its home turf around March 8 or 9.

ASUS is expected to show off a new ZenFone 5 and possibly a Lite version as well.

Other major tech manufacturers are looking to get in on the action. One topic that we'll hear about this year is 5G.

Additionally, smartphone vendors generally consider that mobile phones will become the core end-device for IoT networks, and thus they have to optimize related hardware and software specifications to enable a variety of applications and scenarios such as AR or VR through the support AI technology.

Last year's MWC was Nokia's big comeback. The Xperia XZ Pro is said to have an 18 million-pixel camera, a 12 million-pixel camera on the back and a 13 million-pixel camera on the front, respectively for the first time as an Xperia series model. Hopefully, no dogs were harmed during the filming of the announcement video (below).
