Sony Will Launch Phones on YouTube, Skips MWC 2020 Due to Corona

The Mobile World Congress 2020 is losing one brand after another as Sony has officially announced that they will not be participating in the event. Instead, the Sony phones that have been scheduled for launch during the event will be done directly over YouTube as a live event.

Nintendo has been doing this virtual seminar for many years now. They skipped E3 gaming event multiple times but will instead go for the Nintendo Direct event which will be streamed live at the event venue. A similar concept is now being used by Sony and probably by other brands as well so as to protect their employees against the novel Corona virus that is spreading at a rapid pace.

In the previous official press releases, major brands including Amazon, Nvidia and LG have decided to not attend Mobile World Congress 2020. The press release read, “As we are highly concerned about the welfare of our employees, clients and customers, we have decided to not participate in MWC 2020 scheduled to take place in Barcelona, Spain.”

Based on the rumors from the past, Sony was planning to launch the Xperia 5 Plus. The large phone will sport a 6.6-inch OLED display combined with triple rear cameras and a powerful selfie camera. The stereo speakers will be one other highlight but the phone will have its fingerprint sensor on the side and not on the display as many other phones have these days.

With all the major brands out of MWC 2020 including Sony, journalists planning to go to Spain are largely disappointed. They may not have any kind of good photographs or events to attend because the conference halls will be empty as quoted by a CNET employee. It won’t be surprising if MWC calls off the event for this year due to the fear surrounding the Novel Corona virus.
