Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2023 wrapped up on Thursday, ending the world’s largest smartphone-centric event. Many notable handsets from companies such as Xiaomi, Nokia and Tecno were launched at the event, while other companies showed off prototype smartphones with miniaturized liquid cooling technology and rollable displays. that retract and extend at the push of a button. MWC 2023 also saw companies like Xiaomi and Oppo show off prototype AR glasses with a compact design.


On this week’s episode of Orbital, the Gadgets 360 podcast, guest host Jamshed Avari and senior reviewer Sheldon Pinto chat with reviewer Pranav Hegde who attended MWC 2023 in Barcelona. While MWC was canceled in 2020 and was a hybrid event last year, Hegde describes MWC 2023 as a “busy” event.

At MWC 2023, Xiaomi announced the global launch of the Xiaomi 13 series, along with the debut of the Xiaomi 13 Pro in India. This smartphone is equipped with the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC and has cameras tuned by Leica. The handset is the company’s most expensive model to arrive in India and puts the device in the same price bracket as the Vivo X80 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S23.

The Motorola Rizr, a new “rolling” phone featuring a screen that rolls down from the bottom of the handset to expand from 5.4 inches to 6.5 inches at the touch of a button, was unveiled at MWC 2023. While it has Rizr branding on the back, it’s worth bearing in mind that this is a prototype that will likely need to be developed before it’s commercially available.

While many people were expecting to see a foldable OnePlus at MWC, the company instead unveiled the OnePlus 11 Concept phone. This handset is equipped with a miniaturized liquid cooling mechanism which is not as efficient as the company’s 45W cooler which can reduce temperatures by up to 20 degrees Celsius.

The Nokia G22 was announced by the company at MWC 2023, a fully user-serviceable phone. Customers in the US and Europe can repair their own handset, using parts and a guide provided by iFixit. Nokia launched a few G-series phones in India last year, but it’s unclear if this phone will debut in India or if it will allow customers to fix their own phone.

Xiaomi and Oppo have also unveiled new AR glasses powered by Qualcomm’s latest advancement in wearable technology. These devices aren’t ready for public use, but Xiaomi showed off a new pair of glasses that feature both AR and VR modes, while Oppo unveiled new AR glasses with minimal functionality. The companies haven’t revealed many details about the type of apps and features that will be supported on these portable devices. Apple is also expected to unveil its first wearable VR headset later this year.
