When the iPhone does not change, Android phones get bizarre
We live in a fun-filled, ultra-tense time when no consumer technology company can keep its secrets. So when I look at Barcelona's approaching Mobile World Congress, I can tell you that it will probably bring the most diverse choice of smartphones, dimensions, design and specifications we've seen. The MWC 2019 will be defined by this variety as companies seek to the ends of conventional design to try to come up with an original idea, a concept of attraction, or just a good old trick that will differentiate its product from everyone else. Simply put, things will become odd.
During many years of visiting MWC, I noticed two major ways of development for most phone manufacturers.
Road A is a copy of Apple. Let's be ahead of it. Copying iPhone is the way Samsung, Xiaomi and Huawei ̵
1; the other three in the world's four leading smartphone manufacturers – besides Apple – started to work, and many other companies were doing well. This method involves taking your existing flagship device, comparing it with the current iPhone plus rumors for the next iPhone, and then bringing your design to that ideal. Examples? Last year, you could not walk 10 steps to the MWC without seeing a copy of the iPhone X, among which Asus was one of the most unpleasant, albeit just because of the size and size of the company as a manufacturer of PC components. pursue first without paying attention to many other things. This approach implies that the user is inconsistent, easily dissipating and dissatisfied with only gradual improvement. The more dramatic the novelty, the more visually attractive and different it is, the better. No one is immune to this line of thinking and its basic premise is true: when Samsung tried to re-issue the Galaxy S8 as a more sophisticated but not quite different S9, the market reacts by reducing its sales.
2019 is a B path type of year.
After the big redesign of the iPhone with the iPhone X, Apple did not really do much of the overhaul. on his smartphone in the autumn of 2018. And so anyone who is still trying to defuse iPhone this year will basically be late for the party. This is already done. But in 2018, display technology advanced, new mechanical constructions such as periscope pop-up chambers appeared and even the sliders returned.
Any company that attends MWC wants to maximize its exposure (with the possible exception) to ZTE, which seems to retain a low profile due to its uncertain future), and to do so, almost every company is a little wild with its design. Let's take a look at some of the excellent examples that leaks and event reports suggest we'll see next week. Evan Blass  Sony will use a cinema 21: 9 screen on the next Xperia flagship phone. It will become very high – or wide when it is kept away – a phone, and it will surely cause a conversation. This reminds of the fascinatingly bizarre LG BL40, a 2009 handset that was impressive in appearance and made of wonderful materials, but offered shiny ergonomics and performance. Nokia will release five cameras on its new flagship. Of course, Samsung and LG have made the idea for five and six smartphone cameras to feel almost normal, but having a full range of five on just one surface is still a feat from Nokia. Nokia 9 PureView has been subject to leakage for many months, and the specific arrangement of the five lenses on its back will be a memorable design for a while.
Oppo builds a 10x optical zoom phone. Using a smart system of mirrors and lenses located sideways in the phone, Oppo already demonstrates the ability to deliver a 5x zoom through optical, not digital, means. The move to 10x is even more impressive, and the expectations for MWC is that technology will become an actual retail device.
Huawei will respond to the Samsung Galaxy Fold with its own hybrid 5G foldable phone. This device, which is still unnamed and still mysterious, will probably be the baby of the MWC 2019 plaque. It will combine the two big 5G and folding trends, though how many of them we will see or touch. for discussion.
Nubia will bring its smartphone to carry in Alpha to MWC, and we may well have reason to expect that the company will set the price and date of launch of the device for markets outside of the native you are China. I saw Alpha in September at the IFA when it was in a certain incomplete state, so MWC may be considered the right debut of the wrist-worn phone.
