We are in Barcelona as MWC 2013 gets ready to kick-off

Hola from Barcelona, Spain! It’s unusually cold here, but MWC is going to heat things up once it stars. The official start of the expo is on Monday, but the press events actually start tomorrow. We’ll be covering everything there is, as Huawei, LG, Nokia, ASUS, ZTE and more major player in the mobile industry have their press conferences in the upcoming days.

The Mobile World Congress 2013 is held in Fira Barcelona.

As per usual, we have our fair share of leaked new devices, destined to be showcased at the showroom floors as well as some official ones that have been announced ahead of the show. LG, for example, officially shed light on its refresh L-series (L3 II, L5 II, L7 II), brand new F-Series (F5 and F7) as well as a direct rival to the Note 2 – Optimus G Pro. Nokia is expected to announce a couple of affordable Lumia smartphones – 720 and 520. As for ASUS, it is teasing tirelessly with all sorts of eye-catching videos what’s probably going to end up as the third-gen PadFone and the FonePad slate.

Just like last year, the Huawei press conference is first and starts tomorrow at 14:00 CET (that’s GMT +1). Monday is going to be tightly packed with LG (08:00 CET), Nokia (09:00 CET), ASUS (13:30 CET) and ZTE (16:00 CET) all having their press events then. It goes without saying that you will be finding all the information on those event and more on our homepage, so keep an eye on it.
We also shot have a few nice photos of the Fira Barcelona Gran Via to let you taste the atmosphere for the days ahead (sans the cold weather).

We’d like to hear from you, too. What is the smartphone you are looking forward to seeing at the MWC 2013? Share with us in the comments section.
