Every year at the Mobile World Congress, companies take the opportunity to showcase what new cool innovations they have and at this year’s MWC there was no shortage of phones that we couldn’t have expected and we’re not just talking about foldable phones or 5G.
There were a lot of cool smartphones this year but these are our top seven favourite phones out of MWC 2019
7) Energizer PowerMax p18 k-pop
This is a big phone literally. The Energizer PowerMax p18 k-pop is a long name but the name explains it all, you get a whopping non-removable Li-Po 18,000 mAh battery with fast charging and a follow-up module with two selfie cameras.
Other than that, the phone specs are MediaTek processor, 6 GB of RAM, 120 GB of storage and it runs on Android 9 pie. I guess you could say that it’s more power bank than a phone and at this point the device does look like a brick, either way, it’s impressive
6) Nubia Alpha
Popularly described as the smartwatch pretending to be a smartphone, the wearable Nubia Alpha really does materialize our wishes of having a smartphone you can wear and it doesn’t disappoint with a four-inch OLED display.
The Nubia Alpha has a 500 milliamp-hour battery that can last two days. It also supports voice commands and gestures and then I mentioned it looks really cool.
5) Xiaomi Mi Mix 3
Number five goes to Xiaomi, now that 5G is highly anticipated this year Xiaomi decided to introduce a new 5G variant of the Mi Mix 3 and this is very interesting because Xiaomi is known for coming out with high spec phones at low prices.
The Mi Mix 3 5G so far comes with a 599 Euro price tag and beside that, it has a slide-out camera, Snapdragon 845, up to 10 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage,
Availability for the variants, of course, will depend on your region.
4) LG V50 THINQ
The LGV 50 Thinq is not exactly a foldable phone but it does have two screens. You have the option to use through screens if you want or just use it as a regular smartphone, it is a folding phone but it doesn’t have to be.
It has a 6.4-inch secondary display which is kind of the dual screen accessory, the v50 thinQ is also one of those phones that boast ultra-fast 5G.
3) Sony Xperia 1
The number three is the Sony Xperia 1. 19 by 9 displays are dead, at least, according to Sony, the Xperia 1 has a 6.5-inch 4k OLED display tuned by the Bravia team that has a really tall 21 by 9 aspect ratio.
The thinking behind this is that Sony wants to bring the experience of a TV onto your smartphone. Under the hood, it has a Snapdragon 855 chipset, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.
Aside from the Xperia 1, Sony also introduced the Xperia 10 and 10 plus which are mid-range phones that have the same 21 by 9 screen.
2) Nokia 9 Pureview.
We have a comeback from Nokia and this time, it is the Nokia 9 Pureview. It has a whopping total of five 12 MP camera lenses at the back, two of them are dedicated RGB cameras while the other three are for capturing black-and-white data.
This innovation is expected to boost your photos to give you more details and lifelike images. Other specs include a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
1) Huawei Mate X
I think most of you can agree that Huawei stole the show with their foldable phone: The Mate X.
When unfolded you get an amazing notch free 8-inch display but when folded it turns into two new displays, of course, there’s a small strip on the back where the cameras are placed where it still looks good. In total, it has four cameras.
Accurate 980 chipsets plus a new balloon 4500 chip for full 5G support. The mate X also comes with 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage that’s expandable by up to 256 megabytes via microSD card.
There have been various specs comparisons between the Mate X and Samsung’s Galaxy fold.
There you have it, the best smartphones showcased at the MWC 2019. Admittedly, there were a lot of amazing devices at this year’s MWC but these seven were really the ones that stood up to us and it leaves us excited for what the rest of the year has in store,
