MWC (Mobile World Congress) is one of the biggest tech trade shows globally, and it's finally begun! Many new and innovative handsets are usually announced at MWC, and this year will be no different. Although COVID 19 has caused some issues, MWC 2021 has gone ahead (although smaller than usual) and will last from 28 June to 1 July. MWC will be held as a small physical event as well as a virtual event that many can view online - so COVID 19 hasn't made too much of an impact on MWC 2021! So, what will be announced at this year's MWC event?
Here are some of the announcements from MWC 2021:
Lenovo announced a new smart clock and five tablets
Lenovo has been busy with all their latest announcements. Currently, Lenovo has announced five new tablets: the Lenovo Yoga Tab 13, Yoga Tab 11, Tab M7, Tab M8, and Tab P11 Plus. But that's not all. They've also announced the second generation of their Smart Clock, which will be released in September with a starting price of about £70 ($90 / €80 /AU$130). The Smart Clock 2 will have an improved speaker design, a new shape, and a new charging dock accessory. The design is slightly taller than that of its predecessor and has two front-firing 3w speakers and stereo audio. The downside to this successor is that the USB-A port has been removed, and it doesn't come with a charging dock - so if you want to charge your other devices, you will have to spend extra to buy a charging dock or matt.
TCL have NXTWEAR G smart glasses ready for sale later this year
If you're a fan of smart wearable devices, you might want to listen up. TCL has announced the release of the NXTWEAR G smart glasses. These glasses are equipped with full HD-resolution Sony Micro OLED panels offering its wearers a 4K image. You'll have to plug the glasses into your phone, tablet, or computer, as they aren't battery-powered. While the thought of plugging in your glasses might dampen the innovative feel, it does mean that the glasses are lighter - 130g total! The NXTWEAR G smart glasses work as an equivalent of a 140-inch display! While these glasses are made for viewing pleasure, they don't sit flush on the face. Instead, they leave a small gap so you can still use your peripheral vision. This year, the glasses will be on sale later this year for around £510 ($715 / €599 / AU$945), hitting the market first in Australia, South Korea, and then Japan.
