February 18, 2016 / MWC16, 5G, Virtual Reality / Posted By: Kelly Capizzi

The mobile industry will descend onto Barcelona next week to see the latest technological developments, next generation services and growth strategies at Mobile World Congress (MWC), the industry's premier conference. In order to sift through the noise, Strategy Analytics, a leading research and analytics firm, issued a report that lists the top 10 priorities for the show – and InterDigital made the cut.  

The report, titled “MWC 2016: Your Pocket Guide,” recommends the top 10 handsets and topics as well as the key industry leaders within the topics at MWC.  For handsets, the Strategy Analytics list includes the Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5, Huawei P9 and HTC One M10 among others.  As far as industry topics, the pocket guide advocates 5G and Virtual Reality as among the leaders.  

According to the report, “…5G represents the next 10 to 20 years of mobile phones and IoT. We expect companies like Qualcomm, Ericsson and InterDigital to be right at the forefront of 5G demos or presentations at MWC 2016.” As far as Virtual Reality, the firm predicts that Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive and Google Cardboard will be among the best devices for trial at the show.  

This mention underscores InterDigital’s long history as a leader in mobile technology development and highlights the strength of the company's research and contributions to the industry. The company recently announced that it will showcase a number of working 5G access and network solutions years ahead of broad market rollout at MWC 2016.
