One of the biggest and most anticipating tech events — Mobile World Congress 2021 or MWC 2021 kicked off today. Hundreds of tech firms including such giants as Google, Samsung, etc. take participate in demonstrating their new products in Barcelona every year. However, Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSMA), which organizes Mobile World Congress, had canceled last year’s event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What to expect from the event?

According to the ZeeNews original article: Google, Nokia, Xiaomi, Samsung, Facebook, and Sony will not take part in the physical edition of MWC 2021. Moreover, some companies haven’t confirmed either showcasing their products and technologies online. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions the previous year, many tech titans launched their own digital events, as a result, this year may be the same situation. However, a few brands have confirmed their virtual event dates, but don’t expect a lot of new launches this year.

Samsung’s MWC 2021 virtual event will take place on Monday (June 28), which happens to be the first day of the function. The Korean electronics giant had also rolled out a video hinting towards the speculated launches. However, it’s very unlikely that Samsung will launch a new smartphone at the event. 

Meanwhile, Intel and Lenovo have confirmed their participation at MWC 2021. The chipset giant might launch products and technologies related to 5G and AI while the Chinese tech firm is expected to showcase its new laptops and accessories which were launched before MWC. Lenovo might launch more new devices at MWC 2021.
