MWC 2020: what everyone expected from the exhibition, which was canceled

Before MWC 2020, more and more information appeared that some large companies would either cancel their

press conferences, or miss it at allevent. Blame everything - fears due to the outbreak of the Chinese coronavirus. However, everything went according to the worst-case scenario, and the organizers canceled the exhibition. We have prepared a short list of the expected new products that could be shown at one of the largest exhibitions in the mobile industry in the world.

Information that MWC will have this yeardifficulties, began to arrive on February 5th. And if the ZTE press service after a huge amount of news about the cancellation of its participation still refuted the information, then LG immediately refused to participate. Other companies followed this example, and now MWC, apparently, this year will be exclusively an online exhibition - without noisy pavilions and press conferences. Barcelona already estimates the losses from the cancellation of MWC at least $ 500 million.


During the exhibition, the Chinese ZTE was going to tell the world about its plans for the development of 5G networks, simultaneously showing new devices supporting this technology.
