Russell Holly, senior editor at Android Central, shares his thoughts on what he saw this weekend at Mobile World Congress, or MWC. Samsung, Google, and others unveiled new hardware and software.

Samsung finally revealed its new flagship phone, the Galaxy S9. The phone will be priced at $719.99, far cheaper than Apple's iPhone X which costs $1,000. However, Holly notes the phone could be more expensive depending on which carrier you buy it from.

Nokia made a nostalgia play at MWC, showing off its new 8110 Reloaded phone. The phone is famous for an appearance in "The Matrix," and it's shaped like a banana. Since the phone is priced under $100, Holly says it could actually do quite well if Nokia can deliver.
