Unfortunately, it is not a bad taste joke and therefore the cancellation of the most anticipated technology event of the year, the Mobile World Congress 2020 is official. The decision came as a bolt of lightning, even if the probability of canceling the MWC 2020 was partly in the air, given the waivers by a number of producers as well as practically the "desert" that would have welcomed the patrons of the fair, as the companies surrounding the event would all remain at home given the overwhelming provenance from Chinese territory, the center of the Coronavirus epidemic.
The current situation deriving from Coronavirus and its widespread diffusion have alarmed the city of Barcelona, leading to the decision by the GSMA team (association that deals with the organization of this important appointment in the world of technology) to cancel the MWC 2020, even if until the end the hope of the opposite has remained alive.
The news was made global by GSMA CEO John Hoffman, who gave his explanations via the Bloomberg portal, stating that the event could not have taken shape given the growing concerns arising from the Coronavirus, as well as the scarce knowledge of the "enemy".
MWC 2020 has been canceled due to Coronavirus
A piece of news that catches all the sector workers unprepared, given that up to the end the presence by many other protesters had been guaranteed, just like the same as the very same Oppo who had planned the launch event on a global scale of the top of the range Find X2 or the same Realme that would have presented its X50 Pro.
However, we must admit that the decision to cancel the MWC 2020 event is to be considered responsible and sensible given the extent of the problem generated by the Coronavirus. Should we therefore expect press releases from the various producers who would participate in the event? Will special events be organized to demonstrate the launch of their devices on a global scale?
Certainly among the most awaited news of the MWC 2020 we find the Xiaomi Mi 10, which was supposed to come to life on Sunday 23 February, the day when Huawei and Motorola would also have unlined their axes. Oppo and Realme instead should have launched their Find X2 and X50 Pro flagships on day 22. In the next few days we will certainly know more so stay tuned because we will be ready to give you all the appropriate updates. For the moment we just have to wait for the evolution of events and enjoy the leaks that will come.
