If you are familiar with CES, you know that the Mobile World Congress (MWC) is its counterpart in terms of the size and extent of the event. MWC is always a highly awaited event because this is where companies launch most of the top smartphones of the year. In addition, you can also expect the year’s latest trends in tablets, smartwatches, and other mobile gadgets. 

The World Mobile Congress likewise sees the participation of many of the industry giants to discuss the future of various technologies—mobile, VR, 5G, mobile hardware, and various mobile-related technologies. 

The Mobile World Congress will happen in Barcelona from February 28 to March 3, 2022. Last year’s event moved from February to June because of the pandemic. As a result, it became a lackluster event as only a few companies participated. 

But this year, the organizers expect bigger things, with the GSM Association planning to have a physical event. However, they are also considering the state of the pandemic. Therefore, many people are looking forward to the media launches days before the official dates of the conference. These days, usually two days before the event starts, many companies will be sharing their big announcements. 

Some announcements

Lenovo confirmed it would not participate in the physical event in late January. However, the company will still be a participant, although they will be going virtual. Asus also stated that they would not participate, although the company did not indicate if they would be joining the event virtually. However, since Asus is not a regular at the MWC, many insiders are not worried. 

It is a different matter with Sony, however. The company said it would not be at the MWC 2022. But GSMA, the event organizer, said that Sony’s announcement was a surprise because the company did not have a reservation this year. 

MWC 2022 – What to expect

The Mobile World Congress is a trade show; thus, it is not open to the public. However, the public can access several events virtually. Despite the pullout of Sony and Asus, the industry eagerly awaits the announcements of many more things. 

Although you see and hear plenty of rumors, you could realize that some of the rumors are true. Otherwise, you can expect plenty of surprises at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
