How to watch Huawei MWC 2016 launch

Huawei headed to MWC 2016 ready to announce a handful of new products. Previous company announcements have been live streamed via YouTube, but sadly Huawei took a different route this time around. Unlike with previous Huawei announcements, the company decided not to host a livestream of its event at MWC in Barcelona on Sunday February 21.

While that was disappointing for Huawei fans around the world, we can offer you the next best thing - a live blog. We were at the event on Sunday, and we were live blogging everything that was announced. Keep reading to enjoy the event as it happened.

What to expect from Huawei at MWC 2016: Huawei P9

The Huawei P8 was a hugely popular phone, but it was released almost a year ago in April 2015. That means it's due for an update - and what better time to announce a new smartphone than at Mobile World Congress? Rumours suggest we'll be seeing the Huawei P9 make an appearance at the event, although details of the smartphone are pretty scarce. 

Based on rumours, we expect the Huawei P9 to have a premium design to match that of the P8, along with a full HD display - although we're not quite sure of the size. Some reports claim that as many as four screen sizes will be available after launch, ranging from 5- to 6.8in., which if true is an interesting move from the company. Along with a full HD display, expect to find a whopping 6GB of RAM, a  rear-facing dual camera setup with a 16Mp sensor, a back-mounted fingerprint scanner and a Kirin 950 processor.

Of course, these are rumours so take them with a pinch of salt, although if true, the Huawei P9 is set to be a pretty impressive smartphone. 

What to expect from Huawei at MWC 2016: New tablet

While many assumed that the Huawei P9 would be the only new product announced at MWC 2016, another rumour recently surfaced which, if true, would see a second product announced at the event. The rumour suggests that Huawei is to launch a dual-boot notebook capable of running both Windows and Android operating systems. The notebook may also feature an Intel processor and possibly a stylus, which was recently hinted by Huawei's own Twitter account.

The notebook also features a detachable display, making it comparable to Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 and similar tablet/laptop hybrids. Obviously, this rumour is pretty fresh so don't hold your breath that we'll be seeing it on Sunday - but who knows? Huawei, that's who.
