MWC 2018: What smartphones to expect from Samsung, Nokia, Xiaomi and more

The Mobile World Congress (MWC), which, on average, attracts more than 1,00,000 people, is expected to get bigger and better in 2018.

LG hasn't given us any details on when, exactly, this new phone will launch, and the company doesn't have an event scheduled for MWC, but we're sure we'll be able to grab an LG exec or two by the sleeve if we see them.

This bit of information comes from Nokiapoweruser, which claims that the Nokia 10 is really the Nokia 8 Pro.

The Nokia 9 will most likely be the high-end flagship device by the company.

As for other characteristics, the smartphone will be based on Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 845. It will include an internal storage of 128GB. The device packs a 2.40-inch display with a resolution of 240 pixels by 320 pixels.

Also in the list of expected specs, Nokia 7 plus will be powered by a Snapdragon 660, as previously known, mated to 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage and a microSD slot. It's rumored to come in three variants: P20, P20 Plus and P20 Lite, with the first two variants sporting a triple (!) 40-megapixel rear camera. The company could halt production of the existing Nokia 3 and it could be replaced by the Nokia 4. The front camera might be integrated with the iris scanner on the Galaxy S9. It is said that the Galaxy S9 Plus will sport a 12 million-pixel camera on the back and an eight million-pixel camera on the front. These are the same battery capacities, which we present in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ as well.

Apple TV would also appear inside of the Home app and had a section in AirPlay settings to choose an appropriate HomeKit room. For those Apple users who are looking for additional Emojis, those will be released with iOS 11.3 planned for the spring.

This updated V30 will also get a slew of new voice commands for Google Assistant, marking the first time a smartphone maker has cooked up custom Assistant commands.

One of the biggest MWC 2018 launches will, undoubtedly, be the Samsung Galaxy S9 series. However, a source suggests that the Galaxy S9 fingerprint sensor won't be integrated into the display. In terms of operating power, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will have the latest-generation processors, namely either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or the Exynos 9810, depending on the country. Rumors say at least one new phone is coming, and - as is the case with all Sony flagships - you can expect a big focus on the camera. For comparison, the Z5 compact, bottom, is more angular.

The smartphone could feature a 5-inch screen along with Gorilla Glass 5 for protection.

ZenFone 5 Max is expected to come with Snapdragon 845, 4 GB RAM and 18: 9 screen.

Chinese brand Xiaomi was earlier rumoured to launch the Mi MIX 2S at MWC 2018. As per leaks, the new smartphone is now codenamed "polaris" and will include the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.

Leaked images of the the next flagship from ASUS, the ZenFone 5 sees it flaunting a near bezel-less design with an 18:9 aspect ratio and an iPhone X-like notch. USB-C port with Quick Charging and Android Oreo out of the box are the other talking points. 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.
