Ubergizmo’s Best of MWC 2019 Editor's Pick

With 5G and foldable phones entering the market in 2019, this year’s Mobile World Congress was full of excitement, but not all products are created equal, and some are more eye-catchy than others. Here’s what we think is worthy of your attention, in no particular order.


Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO A340 Desktop Launched

Computers come in all shapes and sizes, but if you’re looking for something that’s sleek and won’t take up too much table space, then you might be interested in checking out Lenovo’s latest desktop computer which comes in the form of the IdeaCentre AIO A340.

This Is What The Huawei P30 Allegedly Looks Like

Huawei has recently confirmed that come 26th of March, they will be officially unveiling their next smartphone, the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro. These handsets are the successors to last year’s P20 and P20 Pro, and given how well-received they were, many are expecting great things from the P30 series as well.


OnePlus 7 Will Not Have Wireless Charging

Nowadays it’s becoming increasingly common to see smartphones that support wireless charging. Unfortunately that seems to be a feature that OnePlus has skipped out on over the years, and if you were hoping that 2019 would change things, think again because OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed that the phone will not be featuring wireless charging.

T-Mobile’s 5G Plans Will Be Unlimited, Won’t Be More Expensive Than 4G

T-Mobile has recently confirmed their plans for when they will be rolling out their 5G networks, but the question we’re sure many have is that will these new 5G plans be more expensive than 4G? After all, they are new, and like we’re seeing with 5G smartphones, it does have the potential to be pricier.


Vuzix Unveils M400 Smart Glasses Aimed At Enterprise Users

Smart glasses have yet to break into the mainstream. Google had several years ago attempted to bring smart glasses to the mainstream with the Google Glass, but we all know how that turned out. However what was interesting is that despite it failing to become a hit with consumers, it actually proved to be a hit in the enterprise sector.


TCL’s Dragonhinge Could Usher In More Foldable Devices

At MWC 2019 this year, it’s safe to say that the topic of foldable phones is a hot one. We saw companies such as Samsung launch their own foldable smartphone with Huawei also tossing their hat into the ring. This is why it’s not surprising to see that other companies are also looking to get in on it.


Lenovo Unveils The ThinkVision M14 Portable External Monitor

One of the perks of working from home is that it typically affords you a larger working space where depending on your needs and preferences, could let you have a dual or triple monitor setup. Unfortunately working on the go doesn’t really present users with that kind of opportunity, or at least until now.


Thanks To Sprint, Google Fi Will Soon Be Able To Offer 5G As Well

Sprint has recently confirmed that they will begin rolling out their 5G network this coming May. This has led to some to wonder how this will affect Google Fi given that Google Fi operates based (in part) on Sprint’s network. The good news for Google Fi users is that it looks like thanks to Sprint turning on its 5G network in the next few months, it also means that Google […]


Android’s FIDO2 Certification Could Mean A Passwordless Future

Right now passwords still rule the majority of our apps online services. While passwords are still very much functional, they do present certain problems like forgetting them and also the possibility of someone else guessing or figuring out your passwords, thus giving them access to your accounts.


Sony Has A 5G Prototype Smartphone At MWC 2019

At MWC 2019, Sony took the wraps off their flagship smartphone the Xperia 1 along with their Xperia 10 and 10 Plus mid-rangers. However what was missing from Sony’s announcements (aside from flexible displays and ways to hide the notch) was 5G. The company briefly touched on the topic but it seems that they did not have any 5G smartphone to announce.


Energizer’s Smartphone With An 18,000mAh Battery Is Ridiculous

We’ve long complained about the mostly dismal life of our smartphone batteries, but it seems that Energizer has a smartphone with a battery that could potentially last you days on end. The only catch is that you will need to withstand stares and possible laughter because as you can see, this phone is thick.


Nubia Alpha Smartwatch Is All Display

When it comes to smartwatch designs, they are pretty standard and to a certain extent, almost boring. At the same time it is understandable since the idea is to blend the watch into your everyday fashion without standing out too much. However at MWC 2019, Nubia wants to turn that idea on its head.
