On February 25th, 2019, the annual World Mobile Communications Conference (MWC) kicked off in Barcelona, Spain. As a grand event in the mobile communications industry, we can regard MWC as a stage for the world’s mobile phone manufacturers to show themselves. Whether it is traditional. Communication or chip or mobile phone terminal manufacturers all show their muscles in this MWC. The main focus of MWC is to show emerging technologies in the current and even future communication industry. In the course of this write-up, we will go deep into MWC2019: Interpretation of new technologies.
At this year’s MWC exhibition, 5G and folding screens took center stage. Of course, the showcasing of mobile phone camera technology and some mobile phone hardware upgrades cannot be ignored. Therefore, it was very fierce at this MWC.
1. 5G Network technology took the Shine at MWC19
Throughout the year 2018, the legend of 5G has been circulating in our ears. We all know that 5G is very fast, but no one has ever used it. However, at this MWC show, 5G is here to stay and there are countless signs that this year may become a turning point for 5G.
First of all, Xiaomi brought the 5G version of Xiaomi MIX 3 at this MWC exhibition. For everyone in the Xiaomi MIX series, it is clear that the flagship series named after the millet number has an impressive price tag. So the millet at this exhibition It is not surprising attendant.
In appearance, the Xiaomi MIX3 5G version is no different from MIX3. However, in terms of configuration, Xiaomi MIX3 5G version of the processor is upgraded from Xiaolong 845 to Xiaolong 855, and supports Xiaolong X50 baseband to support 5G network.
In addition, Xiaomi MIX 3 5G version of the battery capacity has also increased, from 3300mAh to 3800mAh. Also, It is reported that Xiaomi MIX3 5G version download speed up to 2Gbps. And most of our 4G 10 megabytes download speed has increased more than 20 times, but this is only surface data, in fact, 5G speed will exceed 4G more than 100 times.
Price of Xiaomi MI MIX 3 5G
At the launch of the Xiaomi MIX 3 5G version, Xiaomi Live demonstrated a 5G video call with European operator Orange. In terms of selling price, the millet MIX 3 5G version starts at 599 euros in Europe. Considering the issue of export tax collection Xiaomi MIX3 5G version will not exceed the millet MIX3 in China and may be sold at around 4,000 yuan.
Of course, it is certainly impossible for Xiaomi to monopolize the limelight on MWC. In other words. According to foreign media, more than 10 mobile phone manufacturers in this MWC may launch new machines. These include ZTE, Motorola, Samsung, Huawei, LG, Blackberry, Sony, Nokia, OPPO, Xiaomi, Yijia, and Google. Most of the above manufacturers will talk about the practical application of 5G technology to the new machine.
At present, there are Samsung, Huawei, LG, OPPO, and Xiaomi in as the companies that showcased a real 5G phone at the MW19. I believe that in a very short period of time, all the manufacturers that bring 5G new machines will make us familiar. And for our consumers, 5G is really here.
2. The folding screen is Just for the Show! Does it add any Value to the Consumer?
If “faster and stronger” is 5G, I believe that people who don’t understand the communication circle or the digital field of mobile phones can understand. Unfortunately, the folding screen is very overrated to many consumers. First off, it is too thick, too heavy, the third screen is too small, not practical, and of course, the most important thing is – too expensive.
List of Folding Screen Phones at the MWC19
At the end of 2018, after the appearance of Samsung and Rouyu’s folding screen mobile phones, it was quickly reported that LG was also doing the folding screen mobile phone. However, the news was quickly denied by LG. At this year’s MWC, LG exhibited two folding-screen concept phones.
According to recent photos, TCL’s folding screen mobile phone solution is similar to the Samsung Galaxy Fold. It is a dual-screen design, but the difference is that the folded part of LG is slightly rough, quite a small toy folded in the early 20th century. The feeling and the area of the folded part is large. In addition, the back of the machine has three rear three camera lenses. Also, the back cover is made of leather.
LG’s other mobile phone adopts a horizontal folding scheme, which is designed for three screens and three rear cameras. It is not difficult to see through the folding part that the thickness of this phone must be very touching. However, according to LG, this folding mobile phone project will be trial-produced to mass production this year. I believe that the LG folding mobile phone by LG can quickly meet with you.
Huawei Mate X Folding Screen Phone
Huawei’s actual folding screen mobile phone is somewhat sincere. Just before the MWC show, Huawei officially released its first folding mobile phone Mate X, which is one of the key devices that China has launched on MWC. Of course, this folding-screen mobile phone will also be equipped with Huawei 5G technology.
According to the demonstration at the Huawei conference, when the Huawei Mate X is closed, the screen will change to the front and rear display, surrounding the main body of the device. The screen size on the back is slightly smaller at 6.38 inches to make room for the four cameras and flash. But the front display is larger, 6.6 inches. When fully turned on, users will get a dazzling 2480 x 2200 pixel resolution OLED screen. The large rear screen has a resolution of 2480 x 892 and the large front screen is 2480 x 1148 pixels.
Huawei Mate X’s price
In terms of price, Huawei’s Mate X 8GB+512GB memory group is priced at 2,299 euros or about 17,498 yuan. Mate X is expected to be released in June 2019. In addition to playing with folding screens and 5G, what other mobile phone manufacturers are doing?
The simple summary is, the steady Lenovo is fingerprinting and taking pictures under the deep ploughing screen. Also, the unfathomable Motorola is holding the new blade Moto RAZR folding mobile phone appetizing appetite. Furthermore, the new Sony machine that is unchanged forever is still the same. Finally, the Nokia that broke the can is finally used On the Qualcomm 845.
3. MWC2019: Interpretation of new technologies: The more cameras, the better
From single shooting to double shooting to three shooting, the evolution speed of mobile phone cameras is extremely fast. There is no doubt that the more cameras you look at, the better you look at them. However, the more cameras you like, the more consumers like it? The answer is definitely no, the eye from Huawei’s super run is called
More and more cameras may represent the hope of mobile phone manufacturers. A mobile phone can shoot a professional photo, but the post-shooting may not be accepted by most consumers.
However, on the Nokia 9 PureView camera, we can feel its efforts to improve the level of photography. The PureView uses ZEISS certified five shots, five cameras at 12 million pixels, including two color lenses and three black and white lenses.
In addition, the Nokia 9 PureView Zeiss has five cameras while still keeping the back without bumps. The five Zeiss lenses are perfectly hidden under the Corning Gorilla 5th generation glass. The changes made from the Nokia 9 PureView are not difficult to see the determination of the former overlord. So, I hope that in the new year, Nokia 9 will be able to sell well.
By the way, Nokia 9 PureView has changed its style in terms of processors and cameras, but its frontal forehead and chin have not been optimized by much.
MWC2019: Interpretation of new technologies with respect to OPPO’s 10x zoom technology
Of course, in addition to the simple and rude after five shots, in this MWC can still see many manufacturers working hard on the camera technology.
In fact, OPPO’s 10x zoom technology has already warmed up a long time ago. At this MWC, OPPO did not accidentally bring this camera technology to the scene. OPPO 10x zoom technology adopts the “super wide-angle + ultra-clear main camera + telephoto” three-camera solution. The ultra-wide-angle camera has a 15.9mm equivalent focal length, which brings a unique view of the wide-angle viewfinder. The ultra-clear main camera ensures photos. At the top of the picture quality, there is also a telephoto camera with a 15.9mm equivalent focal length. The three cameras work together to achieve a 10x zoom in a stack-like manner.
MWC2019: Interpretation of new technologies: The Conclusion
As for the front camera, in 2018 we saw lifts, slides and other solutions, in the final analysis, we hope to further increase the screen ratio. However, under the limelight of the folding screen, the full screen is a bit low-key. In addition to the introduction of a lift camera phone by a foreign battery brand, there is not much news.
In general, in this MWC, the limelight of folding screen mobile phones and 5G mobile phones will reach its peak. It is believed that this year, 5G and folding screen mobile phones of various manufacturers will be seen.
