A different MWC this year

After being canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, Mobile World Congress is back for 2021.

But this year's show will be different in several ways. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the show, traditionally held at the end of February, will run June 28 to July 1. And though the show will take place in person in Barcelona, some of the biggest exhibitors like Samsung, Google and Qualcomm won't attend.

CNET won't be on the ground in Barcelona either, but our global team of editors will bring you the show's top news, on everything from 5G to new products.
