With its phone launch event set for 27 March in Paris, it was thought that Huawei could give Mobile World Congress a swerve this year. It was likely to have some presence at the trade show, but not to launch anything specifically. But the company will hold a press conference today after all and help kick off the biggest mobile event of the year.

Here are the details on how to watch the event live.

When is the Huawei MWC 2018 press conference?

  • Central Europe: 2pm CET

Can I watch the Huawei MWC 2018 press conference online?

Huawei has suggested it'll live-stream its MWC 2018 keynote, though it hasn't said yet where we can find the stream. We expect to host the video once it's available. In the meantime, keep your eyes on its Twitter profile.

What can you expect at the Huawei MWC 2018 press conference?

It looks like we will get a new MateBook at MWC - just as we saw the original MateBook launch there in 2016. Could it have 4G connectivity and run on Snapdragon hardware? Who knows.

A for the P20 phone, it looks set for a March unveiling.
