MWC 2022: What to expect from one of the biggest tech events in the world – News

Mobile World Congress Barcelona 2022 starts on Monday (28), the biggest connectivity industry event in the world. Tech companies, futurists and authorities will present news on mobile technology, fintechs, artificial intelligence, 5G and cloud hosting, among other topics, until March 3 in Spain.

MWC 2022 returns after two years of suspended in-person performances, due to the pandemic resulting from the coronavirus. It was the first major event to be canceled in 2020.

With the arrival of the Ômicron variant, the major companies in the sector have decided that it is not yet time to participate in the event in person. They will be represented through video conferences and online presentations, which have already become mainstream during the pandemic. Even without Sony, Lenovo and Assus, for example, more than 1,800 exhibitors from 183 countries will be gathered on the Gran Via of Fira in Barcelona. Also because of the Covid-19, the physical space of the event will be three times larger, to avoid agglomerations.

While some big companies will be absent in person, other giant companies will be at the event: Vodafone, Telefónica, China Telecom, Qualcomm, Huawei, HTC, Nokia and Cisco, for example, have ensured their presence.

What to expect from the releases

And, while in Brazil we are still waiting for 5G, here some companies will already present solutions for 6G. MWC is like that, always anticipating technology by at least three years.

Xiaomi is expected to showcase four Redmi Note 11 series devices for the first time, and all Xiaomi 11s will be showcased for the first time, but no news is expected from Xiaomi or Redmi. Samsung, which recently introduced the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Tab S8, will present the next generation of the Galaxy Book.

Huawei promises to bring a “super device” and a “smart desktop”. It recently released the P50 Pro, P50 Pocket, and Watch GT Runner. Telefónica has announced that it will show an autonomous drone platform, announced a few days ago.
