Nokia 7 Plus press renders show off design from all angles

Barcelona's Mobile World Congress (MWC), taking place between 26 February and 1 March, will see some of the world's leading technological innovators and manufacturers convene to reveal their latest products and mobile solutions. LG's beleaguered mobile division is expected to announce the 2018 version of last year's V30 flagship at MWC 2018 along with a suite of AI technologies for its smartphones. IBM's Watson created artworks, and we saw connected dogs and seals, and loads of VR.

The Land Rover Explore Outdoor Phone will be on show at MWC next week.

New Nokia phone with model number TA-1048 received certification from the Federal communications Commission (FCC) in the United States. The secondary sensor will be a telephoto lens and will offer Portrait mode as well.

The fingerprint scanner will be shifted, away from the dire location next to the camera lens which frustrated so many S8 users. Given Moto's penchant for latest OS and powerful hardware, we won't be surprised to see Android 8 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 octa-core processor.

But Samsung is touting camera improvements across both of its new phones. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for more tech updates. Battery life can be doubled by adding the Adventure Pack add-on. The SoundStone Bluetooth speaker is also said to be debuting there.

What would be really exciting, but unlikely, is a peek at a foldable Galaxy X. Is it the rumored Xperia XZ2 or a brand new series?

Or it could have a curved screen or be bendable. The unique Yoga Book, which was already slated to ship with Chrome OS but eventually came with either Windows 10 or Android, is likely to see a sequel this year and let's hope that along with Chrome support, Lenovo has fixed some of those capacitive keyboard issues that bogged down input on the original.

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.

VR-related? Maybe, but most likely a new line of MateBooks.

Xiaomi and HTC are also rumoured not to be making an appearance at the show this year. The South Korean company has reportedly released pictures of the S9, which suggest that the S9 will have a thin-bezel design like its predecessor. Both will be made available in SA later this year.

Besides motion-detected "super slow-mo" video capture, the devices will also feature variable aperture on their primary 12-megapixel cameras, allowing the phone to switch between f/2.4 and smallest-in-class f/1.5 aperture mechanically.

Recently, however, fewer and fewer companies have used the show as a launchpad for their devices, choosing instead to hold their own separate events. The ZenFone 5 is expected to have 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 845 processor, Android Oreo, and an 18:9 aspect ratio. Big as in 4000mAh for the plus, which is actually massive.

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.

GSMArena has pointed out that this 5Mp selfie camera - listed as a Chicony CKACE16 module - is in fact a dual-camera.

Rumours suggest that this impact could come in the form of Sony Xperia XZ Premium 2 at MWC 2018. Especially as it won't be cheap.

Other vendors such as Xiaomi and Motorola are also expected to unveil their new phones.

And every year is a big year in phones.
