  • 1

The Mobile World Congress 2022 It is just around the corner. After a 2020 without an event and an atypical 2021, the most important mobile telephony congress returns stronger than ever with a good handful of confirmed companies and quite high expectations.

There is nothing left, just a few days, to reach the gates of Fira and see everything that the companies have prepared. And that is exactly what we are going to talk about today. of everything we expect for the MWC 2022. Without further delay, let’s get to it.

Where and when is MWC 2022 held?

Despite the fact that last year the MWC had to be delayed until summer, this year the MWC 2022 returns to its original dates. The MWC 2022 will take place in Barcelona from February 28 to March 3, although as always there will be events during the previous days. In fact, there are already events confirmed for the same Sunday 27.

Which companies have confirmed their attendance

Companies

If the MWC 2020 and 2021 were marked for something, it was because of the constant trickle of companies that were falling from the event. In 2022, however, companies are more animated and, for now, only Lenovo, Sony and ASUS have confirmed that they will not attend.

The list of confirmed companies can be consulted at this document (PDF) which, according to the GSMA, is correct as of February 10. Among the firms that will be there are Xiaomi, OPPO, Honor, Realme, Huawei, Samsung, Google and operators such as Vodafone, Telefónica and Orange.

What announcements are we waiting for?

Xiaomi

LITTLE BIT

Xiaomi will have its own stand with four different areas: Xiaomi Zone, POCO Zone, Ecosystem Zone and Connected Home Zone. In the Xiaomi zone, the four devices of the Redmi Note 11 series and all the Xiaomi 11 will be exhibited for the first time, but No news is expected from Xiaomi or Redmi.

What is confirmed is that POCO will present the POCO X4 Pro 5G and POCO M4 Pro. When? The February 28 at 7:00 p.m.that is, the same Monday that MWC 2022 begins.

Samsung

Samsung

Samsung will also have a presence at MWC 2022. A few days ago the Korean firm presented the Samsung Galaxy S22 and the Galaxy Tab S8, so it would be strange if it presented new smartphones. However, there will be a event on February 27 at 7:00 p.m. focused on ecosystem.

On the picture we can see mobile phones, smart watches, folding watches (all this is already presented) and, be careful, a laptop. If we add to that the editorial published by the firm entitled “three promises around the PC for MWC 2022”, white and bottled: Samsung is going to introduce a new generation of Galaxy Book.

Realme

Realme

Realme also brings news for MWC 2022, and it is neither more nor less than the launch of the Realme GT 2 Pro, your new high-end smartphone. It is a phone that we already know, since it was presented in China a few weeks ago, and that probably land at our borders on February 28.

The firm has also confirmed that it will bring the “fastest charging in the world”, so it is expected that the Realme GT 2 Pro, which in China has a fast charge of 65W, will reach the international market with 125W. We will have to wait to find out.

OPPO

OPPO

OPPO will be present at MWC 2022, but surely mobiles are not the main protagonists. Why? Because on February 24 the Chinese firm will present the OPPO Find X5 and X5 Pro, their new flagships. Thus, it is to be expected that they will be exposed at their stand, but surely there will be no new smartphones.

What OPPO has confirmed is that it will present a “new connectivity product“, which will “show new technologies in mobile telephony” and which will show “R&D achievements in AR and 5G material”. All very abstract, at least for now.

Honor

Honor has come back stronger than ever after becoming independent from Huawei. If last year he presented the Honor Magic 3, this year, on February 28 at 1:00 p.m., will introduce the Honor Magic 4 series. We know rather little about this range of devices, but if it’s like last year’s, we can expect there to be three (standard, Pro and Pro+). Which yes it is confirmed is that it will have “faster than any” wireless charging.

huawei

huawei

Huawei is not going to be left out of MWC 2022 either. We know that the company has something on its hands thanks to a teaser series released on Twitter. In them speaks of a “super device” and “smart office”but without further details.

The firm recently brought the P50 Pro, P50 Pocket and Watch GT Runner, so what it has in hand for the MWC is a mystery. What we do know is that the event will take place on February 27 at 2:30 p.m..

Google

Android

Google’s presence at MWC is usually more focused on business, but what is often fun to watch is the AndroidGarden. Between halls 2 and 3 we find this exhibition, where Google normally mounts a series of activities to interact with its products, services and ecosystem. It is a mandatory stop.

Other announcements and events

In addition to those mentioned above, during MWC 2022 there will be many other interesting events and sessions. Meta (the old FACEBOOK in capital letters), for example, will have a series of events dedicated to the networks of the future and to OpenRAN.

Telefónica, for its part, is going to make a demo of that autonomous drone platform that it announced a few days ago. From Motorola, which will not attend in person, we hope to see the new Motorola Edge X30 exposed and it is expected that TCL and Nokia will also have news.

Be that as it may, this article is constantly updatedso we will be adding news, information and events as they are announced.
