MWC 2018 Opens

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2018-02-27
MWC 2018 opens today against the backdrop of the first y-o-y (Q4-on-Q4) decline in smartphone shipments as measured by Gartner.

Yesterday, a number of companies held previews of their wares.

Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri said the company would combine its WPON technology with Facebook’s 60MHz Terragraph technology to deliver gigabit broadband to the home with trials starting this year.

The two companies are also collaborating to accelerate the 802.11ay 60MHz WLAN standard.

Huawei previewed its MateBook X Pro laptop and MediaPad tablet 5 family, both of which are to launch in the Spring. Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s consumer group, said anyone with less than 10%  share in the smartphone  market is losing money. Huawei has 10.2% share.

“In the future, only three to four vendors can survive, maybe only less than four,” said  Yu, “if your market share is less than 10% you cannot be profitable. Over 10%, at least, you can break even; over 15% you can make money.”

Samsung showed off its Galaxy S9 smartphone which looks the same as the S8 but with some novel camera capabilities.

Bullitt has a sniffer smartphone that can smell things, ZTE launched its Blade V9, LG added extra RAM and two extra colours to its V30 series

Things might improve when, later today, Sony and Google make their presentations.

MWC is an opportunity to remark on how similar everyone’s phone looks nowadays, which may account for the slowing sales.
