This week the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2022 is being held in Barcelona – one of the biggest events of the year when it comes to new developments in smartphones and other mobile devices.

The MWC hasn’t been held with the public attending since 2019 because of the pandemic so this year is a special year with most of the major companies in this sector making big announcements including Oppo, Huawei, Samsung, OnePlus and Xiaomi.

Here’s a roundup of the biggest news so far from MWC 2022

These new flash charging technologies kick off a new era of safe and efficient flash charging and mean you can now fully charge your mobile phone in something like 17 minutes.

The company also unveiled is the latest 5G CPE device, the OPPO 5G CPE T2. While the OPPO 5G CPE T2 makes the ultimate hub for home and offices to enjoy the convenience of 5G network.
