MWC2017 in numbers

Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona ended last week.

We concentrated mostly on the high(er)-end smartphone launches. Here are the numbers.


Zero appearances by Apple in MWC (as usual), even though there were rumors flying around before the event.



Only one product had a removable battery – a rarity today. The product ? Moto G5.



Wireless charging speed is now competitive with wired charging speed, with LG G6‘s 15W wireless charging.



Samsung didn’t release Galaxy S8 just yet, the launch is on 29th of March.



Difference in battery capacity between the original Nokia 3310 (900mAh) from 2000, and the 2017 edition (1200mAh).



Sony Xperia XZ premium was the only device with a 4K display, or 2160 pixels on the shorter side. Big display = Big power consumption ; It will be interesting to see the difference to little brother Xperia XZs with 1080p display. Or, perhaps the 4K resolution is used only in selected apps like Photo gallery.



The average battery capacity (mAh) of the launched higher-end devices.



Nokia 3310 2017 edition, the cheap and colorful blast from the past stole the show.
