Mobile World Congress has just wrapped up, and wow — it was a doozy. So many new devices were announced, and there was never a dull moment.

While the LG G8 ThinQ may not have the V50 ThinQ’s Dual Screen case, and its 5G connectivity, The G8 ThinQ does have another trick up its sleeve — or at the end of your sleeve, rather: Palm Vein Authentication. Whaaat?
LG came out in full force at Mobile World Congress by announcing their latest G & V series flagship phones. LG’s first 5G device is the LG V50 ThinQ. It will first be seen on Sprint’s network; that’s right, the 5G era has arrived, and it’s looking great.
One of the MWC announcements that most captured my attention was for the new Lenovo Tab V7. An affordable 7” tablet, the Tab V7 is ideal for someone who doesn’t want the expense, or the juggling act, of carrying a phone and a tablet. It blurs the line between the two categories.
Lenovo has high-end business computers covered, but they create some excellent consumer devices as well. Their IdeaPad line is for everyday computing, and the new lineup covers everything you could possibly want, from simple to powerful to all-in-one devices.
As Mobile World Congress 2019 gets underway, Qualcomm Technologies announced their new Qualcomm QCA6390 Connectivity system-on-a-chip (SoC.)

If you’re a fan of physical keyboards, you’ve no doubt been keeping up with the newest BlackBerrys. We’ve reviewed the KEYone and the KEY2, but they were both quite businesslike. The new BlackBerry KEY2 Red Edition, however, looks sporty, fun, and it has updated features!
If you read my Huawei MateBook 13 review, you’ll know that I am a huge fan of the 3:2 aspect ratio on a laptop’s screen. If you are, too (or even if you’re just curious about it), you’ll want to check out the updated MateBook X Pro and the brand new MateBook 14.
At MWC 2019, if you didn’t bring a folding screen of some kind to show the press, then you brought a knife to a gunfight! Huawei brought a big gun, however, and the new Huawei Mate X is a spectacular example of a folding screen done right.

If you’ve ever looked at Lenovo’s Chromebooks and wished they weren’t only available for education, then you’ll be glad to know that the Lenovo 300e and 500e Chromebooks are now available for everyone to buy, and the 100e will be available in March.
If you’ve become disheartened by current laptop prices, you’ll be happy to know that there are some great options coming from Lenovo that are not only feature-rich, but they’re also reasonably priced. Case in point, the 13″ and 15″ Lenovo Yoga 730 and the 14″ Flex 14. Each will cost under $1000, but you’d never guess it from looking at them.

The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ have just been announced, and on the hardware front, they aren’t dramatic updates to their predecessors. Perhaps we’ll finally get a foldable display with the Galaxy S10? But for the S9, Samsung’s heavily focused on improving the phones’ features with a big emphasis on improved low-light photography, slow-motion video, and Bixby integration.
