Missed the latest news from Mobile World Congress 2019? Here are all the new phones coming soon to Vodafone UK...
Just like that, Mobile World Congress – the world’s biggest mobile phone expo – has closed its doors for another year. But not without bestowing upon us a huge list of brand new phones, a host of awesome mobile tech advancements, and a seemingly endless list of things to get excited about for the rest of 2019.
Missed some of the big mobile news? Don’t worry; we’ve got everything you need to know in one place. Here are the new phones coming to Vodafone UK, and a raft of crazy new inventions to keep on your radar…
Huawei Mate X
Huawei’s been dipping its toes into tomorrow, launching what could be the future of smartphones. Meet the Mate X – a futuristic slab of tomorrow’s tech that you’ll soon be able to own:
As you can see, the Mate X offers two elegant devices in one package: a 6.6-inch smartphone that folds out into an 8-inch Android tablet.
Aside from that fold-out wow-factor, the Mate X boasts an octa-core processor with 8GB of RAM, 512GB of onboard storage, and triple camera setup (40-megapixel, 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel) that takes care of your serious shots and your selfies alike thanks to its unique design.
All in all? The Mate X is an absolute powerhouse, and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
Sony Xperia 10 and Sony Xperia L3
Sony’s been super busy at MWC, lifting the lid on a whole family of new phones. Both the Xperia 10 and Xperia L3 will be coming to Vodafone soon, so what do you need to know?
Well, first up is the Xperia 10, a new flagship with an incredibly cool design. The Xperia 10’s 6-inch display has a movie-like 21:9 aspect ratio, making the phone slightly taller than a lot of its contemporaries, but allowing for true immersion when watching video.
Elsewhere, there’s a 13 and 5-Megapixel dual-camera setup for taking Bokeh-style background-blurring snaps, expandable storage, and a beefy battery that should see you through a busy day without worry. And if you get it with Vodafone, you could bag yourself a trip to an elephant safari in Sri Lanka!
The Xperia L3 is an altogether different beast, offering a great mix of specs in a thin, light, and wallet-friendly package. It has a 5.7-inch display, a dual-camera rear setup and another big battery to help see you through even the busiest of working days.
You can catch GadgetsBoy’s hands-on with the Xperia X10 here:
Samsung’s new S10 family weren’t exactly launched at MWC – rather, a few days prior – but we’re including them here so they don’t pass you by. The Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e are all stellar new phones, offering incredible camera tech, premium designs, and blazing fast innards.

The good, the great, and the weird
MWC isn’t just a great place to catch new smartphones: it’s also the proving ground for a raft of interesting new tech. Here’s a few of our favourite things from the 2019 show floor…
Microsoft Hololens 2
Microsoft’s second go at the Augmented Reality headset of the future is an impressive piece of kit. It’s added smart head-tracking to its suite of features, allowing for even more accurate visuals projected over the top of the real world. It’s exciting stuff, but it’s only for workplaces right now.
1TB MicroSD card
As time marches on, core tech components get ever smaller, and their manufacturing cost only come down. It’s why we’re now living in the age where you can fit a whole terabyte of information on a memory card the size of your thumbnail. Sandisk’s new 1TB MicroSD card has enough room to store more than 750 HD movies.
Part wearable, part flexible smartphone, the Nubia-A (or Nubia Alpha) places a small smartphone on your wrist by wrapping an OLED display around it. It’s a little strange but we can’t help but love any tech company daring to try something new.
Energizer Power Max P18K Pop
Is it a phone? Or a battery pack? Energizer’s quirky Power Max is about three times thicker than your average smartphone, but that’s because it also offers a frankly insane 18,000mAh battery – enough for a week of use, or a solid 48 hours of video watching.
