[Update: Teaser image] Huawei will launch its foldable-screen 5G smartphone at MWC

Move over, notch. 2019 is all about 5G and foldable screens — the two buzzwords we keep hearing at every event, with every major announcement, and in every teaser. Not knowing which one to pick, Huawei seems to have decided on landing a double-punch by teasing the world's "first" 5G smartphone with a foldable display, to be revealed at MWC in Barcelona.

Energizer is bringing two phones with pop-up cameras to MWC... plus 24 others

Just like Kodak and Pepsi, Energizer is the latest mainstream brand that is becoming a smartphone brand. It's planning to release a whopping 26 models at Mobile World Congress in a few weeks, two of which have pop-up cameras. Unlike most phones debuting with these fancy mechanisms, neither is particularly high-end.

Nokia 9 PureView and another device might be announced at MWC

As we're closing in on MWC, manufacturers are starting to tease us on what to expect. Nokia is also joining the party and hinting about announcements in Barcelona on February 24th, which aligns with the date and location of Mobile World Congress. What appear to be two promotional images also corroborate this, showing off what may be the N9 PureView and another phone.

LG is teasing a phone with touchless gesture controls for MWC

While the main challenge Android manufacturers are facing this year is to get rid of the infamous notch, many by simply punching holes in their screens, LG seems to be taking a different route altogether. In a short video published yesterday, the company teased a device with hover gestures to be announced on February 24 at Mobile World Congress.

LG rumored to offer second-screen attachment with upcoming phone

Remember LG's ill-fated Friends modules — you know, that one camera grip thing and the other DAC add-on that never came to the US for the poorly-made G5? The company apparently didn't learn its lesson, as CNET is now reporting that it could be unveiling a phone with a second-screen add-on at MWC next month.

The 2018 Mobile World Congress ended just last week, and over the course of the week-ish of announcements, there was a lot of news to cover. Just in case you happened to miss any, we've put together a quick little list of all the things we wrote about from MWC this year, plus a few things we saw that didn't merit their own post, all mixed in with a big gallery of photos.

Consider this your yearly dose of MWC-substitute. I promise it tastes as good as the real thing.

Android Police's Best of MWC 2018 awards

This year's MWC just wrapped up a few days ago, but for almost a week, news from the event dominated our feed. Numerous individual product announcements occurred in Barcelona this year, and now that it's over, we've handed out seven awards to different manufacturers. Some of them are things you can buy now, some of them are things you can buy later, and some are for things you'll never be able to purchase. But Mobile World Congress (as the name suggests) is about phones, and here are our favorites from MWC 2018.

Hands-on with the ASUS ZenFone 5Z and 5 series: Shameless notch-envy

ASUS' Android phones might slide under the radar for most, but the company's new ZenFone 5 series probably won't. The company has had some trouble historically trying to penetrate the US phone market to any great depth—perhaps a result of its crowded, sometimes confusing product portfolio—but nonetheless it persists. Some of its phones have even been pretty good. But now that the wraps have been taken off its latest line of phones, it seems like ASUS has found a successful way to attract the attention it wanted: by copying the iPhone X's notch.

LG G7 (Neo) caught on video at MWC sporting Snapdragon 845 and 19.5:9 OLED display with notch

It's been very hard to follow LG's news regarding the future of the Gx series and what its 2018 flagship will be. We first heard that LG wouldn't be calling its next flagship "G7," then that LG has scrapped the in-development G7 for a completely new phone, and most recently that we'll see LG's flagship in June. That's all well and good, but this latest article and video shot by Israeli publication Ynet at MWC 2018 depicts a phone called the G7 (Neo). Interesting.

Here are all the Android Go phones announced at MWC 2018

Android Go was first introduced by Google at I/O in May 2017, so it's been a long wait for real devices running the slimmed-down Oreo experience. We hoped Mobile World Congress in Barcelona would be when OEMs began launching Android Go phones, and this was confirmed by Google last week.
