Everything Happening at MWC 2018

By Kim Snaith on at

As we speak, the second big tech event of the year is going on in Barcelona. The Mobile World Congress is where all the big phone companies (and others) come together to show off everything they didn't feel like showing us at CES. That means new flagships, new gadgets, and lots of tech innovations that the general public won't get to see anytime soon.

If you want to stay up to date with all the news and announcements, but can't be dealing with scrolling through everything on Giz, then we have you covered. Over the course of the next few days we'll be updating this post with all our MWC 2018 content, and since our news ed Tom is on the job in Barcelona we'll have plenty for you to enjoy.

Of course, if you prefer, you can also keep up to date by checking the MWC 2018 tag page, too. We like giving you plenty of options.
