    The Mobile World Congress (MWC), one of the first non-virtual global industry events since the Covid-19 outbreak took place in Shanghai, China. Shanghai’s MWC 2021 is showcasing latest technological advances from 5G technology to artificial intelligence.

    This year’s Mobile World Conference is different. There’s only a third as many visitors expected as in previous editions, but many more are participating online. Organizers are calling it a “hybrid event.”

    But social distancing measures haven’t stopped tech giants from showing off their newest gadgets — Huawei showcased its new foldable smartphone Mate X2, worth $2,800, powered by its own 5G Kirin 9000 chip and OPPO presented its mini supercharger.
