The world’s biggest mobile technology show bears a fitting title: Mobile World Congress. Hosted in Barcelona every year, it brings together manufacturers, distributors, carriers, marketers, designers, and engineers from all around to present their latest work and plant the seeds for future collaboration. For us, it’s also the stage for a week’s worth of new Android phone launches.

In 2018, the growing theme is AI, with almost every major manufacturer promising to sprinkle machine-learning magic onto their devices. Dual cameras are also increasingly popping up on the front of phones as well as the back, while the iPhone X’s highly recognizable notched display is also being imitated. Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 generation is sure to dominate MWC 2018, but there’ll be plenty more news made over the week that the show runs, so stay tuned to be kept maximally informed.
