Samsung this time is not going to attend the MWC 2019, but there will be much to see at the annual fair of Barcelona, on the part of other brands. The telephone industry is faced with two revolutions important: the 5G, on the one hand, that promises to increase the speed of the Internet and do all kinds of tasks, significantly faster, and the mobile collapsible, on the other, a technology which after many attempts and rumors, will finally be a reality that we will see at the fair itself.

What you want to tell us with LG “goodbye to the touch”? it is possible that the mark relates to a navigation system using gestures on their phones.
