MWC has indeed cemented its reputation as the world’s largest and most important exhibition for the mobile industry. While Samsung’s decision to delay the unveiling of its Galaxy S8 was regrettable, the other big Android phone makers stepped up and displayed some truly remarkable handsets.
Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi became the fourth such company to produce its own line of chipsets when it unveiled the Surge S1 today. Built with the big.LITTLE architecture, the Surge S1 is made up of four 2.2GHz Cortex-A53 cores to handle tough tasks. Four 1.4GHz Cortex-A53 cores work on the light housekeeping. The result is an octa-core CPU and the Mali T-860 MP4 GPU. The latter uses 40% less energy than the previous generation Mali GPU. A 32-bit DSP supports VoLTE and high quality calls, even in a noisy environment.
One of the best things about producing your own chipset …

Sony has had fingerprint scanners embedded into the power buttons of its smartphones since the Xperia Z5 family, released a year and a half ago. And since then, it has released its phones in the US with the fingerprint scanners disabled — even the new XZs and XZ Premium fall under that rule. A baffling decision, which angered even the Sony-faithful. However, despite the users’ disgruntlement being loud and clear, the company just wouldn’t back down on its decision. Why?
Seeing that everyone in this market is vying for the attention of every single customer, we did believe that Sony isn’t …
As the largest expo in the phone, tablet and wireless communication industries, the Mobile World Congress is usually the place where everyone strives to show their best devices, services and present innovations that aren’t even in a handset yet. The fight for the tech journalist eyeballs is fierce, and the attention-grabbing presentation headlines often promise more than is actually delivered.
While this year’s Mobile World Congress isn’t over yet – we have until Wednesday for that – but it might as well be, as all of the big stuff has already been announced, analyzed, and previewed a million times over, and the only thing left to do is aimlessly wander about the showfloor. For me, however, this year felt somewhat underwhelming – with the Samsung Galaxy S8 being a no-show, and the LG G6 having leaked well in advance, few things managed to surprise.
Here’s some thoughts on this year’s MWCFor what it’s worth, however, some of the new devices this year were …
