Phone Makers Showcase New Trends

Updated on

Huawei Technologies Co. and LG Electronics Inc. are angling to steal the show at this year’s Mobile World Congress, ushering in new smartphones that each hopes will fill a void created by the absence of a new handset from the usually dominant Samsung Electronics Co.

A day before the industry’s biggest conference gets going in Barcelona, LG hosted an event to show off its new G6 smartphone with and edge-to-edge display -- no plastic or metal bezel around it. Huawei updated its flagship line, introducing the P10 phone with Leica camera technology and curved edges at its own event on Sunday.
