Mobile World Congress is currently happening in Barcelona. It is the premier smartphone event of the year, but new phones aren't all you will see at the event.

We're on the ground in Spain and have compiled a list of our favorite tech from the event. Here are the official MUO awards for MWC 2022. Have a read to see what has caught our eye this year.

Honor Magic 4

After parting ways with Huawei late last year, Honor took to the stage with exciting news regarding its latest. Honor's MWC offering—the Honor Magic 4—was one that we took a particular shine to. It's all-new, right down to the Qualcomm chip, and even features its own proprietary UI. Alongside it, you'll also find the Honor Watch GS 3 and Honor Earbuds 3 Pro. It's truly a family affair.

The Honor Magic 4 is Honor's first major global release since the corporate split. It had a lot to live up to in the wake of the Honor 50, but it's completely met our expectations and stands strong as the latest in what will hopefully be a long line of innovative Honor devices.

Huawei MateBook E 2022

If you've been waiting for the perfect 2-in-1, you might be in luck. The MateBook E is the lightweight cousin of the MateBook X Pro, but while it bows to the Pro's horsepower prowess, it makes up for in this sheer versatility, especially for creatives.

When you use the Huawei M-Pencil, you'll be able to draft every composition with precision—4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity plus 10-point touch support puts this OLED display on-par with a Wacom Intuos and other professional tablets of equal standing. 100 percent worth your time if you draw, sculpt, or do anything else through a touchscreen interface.


Aside from that huge selling point, you can also expect this thing to perform flawlessly, thanks to its 11th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU and 16GB of LPDDR4x RAM, just like the MateBook X Pro.

Honor Watch GS3

Honor's Magic4 is making tons of waves as an alternative to those who demand more of their smartphones. This ultra-secure system also includes the Honor Watch GS3, the ultimate personal companion piece to anybody interested in investing fully in this long-awaited line of devices.

Heart rate tracking and SpO2 monitoring are only a few of the everyday benefits that you'll enjoy with the GS3 on your wrist. This stylish smartwatch comes complete with a calfskin strap, or a rubber strap for vegans.

OnePlus 10 Pro 5G

The OnePlus 10 Pro 5G has landed at MWC 2022 and is causing quite the stir, not least thanks to its super powered specs and eye-candy aesthetic. The handset represents the latest in OnePlus' strong lineup of flagship devices, and we love it.

The beefier big brother to the OnePlus 10, the Pro packs a killer Hasselblad camera array on the back face, and is capable of capturing crystal clear images, and it comes with super-fast charging and a screen refresh rate topping a cool 120 Hz. We're so excited to see what's to come when this handset hits the stores.

Huawei Super Device

Huawei's most innovative announcement this week, shockingly, was actually not even a device at all. Instead, Huawei encourages its patrons to treat its entire ecosystem of products and services as a "Super Device" that includes them themselves.

Huawei's William Tian described an ideal that has you going from laptop to smartphone to smartwatch to entertainment device and back again, all seamlessly and without unnecessary barriers. Essentially, the idea is that you'll be able to open up a drawing program on your desktop and then integrate your smartphone into the equation as a tablet peripheral: no fuss, extra drivers, or hassle. Pretty cool.

Oppo Flash Charging

SuperVOOC has been another hot commodity here on the convention room floor. Charging economy has been one major theme running throughout the last year or so. Now, Oppo is ratcheting things up a notch with this incredible fast-charging innovation.

With a SuperVOOC system in your corner, you'll enjoy not only 150W fast-charging and 240W flash-charging. Your battery will also be able to continuously renew itself with the help of an all-new proprietary battery health engine, extending the battery's life overall.

Kokoon NightBuds

You might recognize these from the brand's take-no-prisoners Kickstarter campaign. Kokoon NightBuds are designed to facilitate a more restful night of sleep; they even have an around-the-head headset frame to prevent them from being knocked out throughout the night.

What makes the Kokoon buds unique? Adaptive audio, for one, which prevents stirring those among us who sleep lightly. These NightBuds are able to detect when you've actually fallen asleep, ramping its intelligent noise-masking and passive noise-blocking off gradually, which means it'll never interrupt you as you rest.

They're revolutionary in the way of digital health in that they also double as a sleep tracking device, using body-monitoring sensors and microphones for a full report on the quality of your sleep every night.

Huawei MateBook X Pro 2022

Huawei brought the heat this year. We got a chance to check out the Huawei MateBook X Pro 2022 alongside the Matebook E.

Both are awesome, but we love the MateBook X Pro especially for its portability, sleek profile, and stellar display. It's a fully-fledged workstation, all while remaining completely portable. They're betting it all on this flagship computer, but it's perfectly capable of keeping up with the best of them, at least from our brief time playing around with it.

Huawei Sound Joy

The Sound Joy is actually a joint Huawei effort, a collaboration between the brand and French audio company Devialet. This portable speaker boasts a 26-hour battery life, but that's not all that it has to offer. Its 79 dBA speaker system is surprisingly powerful. Big things, as it would seem, sometimes come in small packages.

Its minimal design is gorgeous, but where we're really sold is in its operability within the Huawei ecosystem as a whole. If you're committed to the idea of a Huawei Super Device, this is one adaptive-audio peripheral accessory that will be absolutely indispensable.

Oppo Find X5 Pro

Oppo has a lot going on this year at MWC—a new connectivity product, as well as demo models on the floor of the new Oppo Find X5 Pro, the latest in its Find X series of lauded smartphones.

One of the aspects of this device that's turning heads: 150W SuperVOOC fast-charging and 240W SuperVOOC flash charge technology. An on-board "battery health engine" extends the life of the battery by repairing itself continuously. The former 150W SuperVOOC will also be featured with one of the aforementioned OnePlus releases, as well.

The Oppo Find X5 Pro will also feature its own Hasselblad camera, as well as enhanced fast-charging capabilities. This will be the world's first glimpse at the device itself, and the reason many will be attending the show in-person at all.

Kaspersky Safe Kids 2022

Kaspersky Safe Kids 2022 is the ultimate in parental controls if the quality of your kid's feed is a priority to you. You can block access to adult content and set limits on screen time; it'll even track your child's location whenever he or she has a Safe Kids-backed device on-hand.


If you can't bear the thought of going under the gun to get some ink on your skin, then the Prinker temporary tattoo printer has the answer to your body-art desires. Completely pain free, this nifty tattoo printer lets you cover yourself head to toe in temporary tats, if that is your bag.

Simply load a PNG into the dedicated app and within seconds you can see your design on your skin, and the results are superb!

Huawei PixLab Printer

Part of Huawei's slew of releases, the PixLab is a wireless printer for the IoT age. Forming a part of the aforementioned Super Device ecosystem, the PixLab B5 works in harmony (and wirelessly) with your Huawei devices, this offers a real boon for the connected Huawei home.

Powered by Huawei's proprietary HarmonyOS, you can expect the printer to integrate easily into your Huawei home office. If you're fed up with the lengthy setup processes and poor unification between your current WFH rig, then allow Huawei to streamline that process for you and power your productivity in ways you have never seen before.

The Pixlab comes in two flavors, the X1 and the B5 (laser printer), so you have choice in terms of printing prowess.

MSi Immerse GV60 Microphone

While MSi is known primarily for its work in the realm of laptops, desktop computers, and graphics cards, we have been super impressed with the new MSi Immerse GV60.

The Immerse isn't just for small-timers, either. It's capable of recording audio at up to 24bit/96kHz; it also utilizes four different pick-up patterns in order to adapt intelligently to what it hears.

Jabra Elite 4 Active

Jabra, on the other hand, is breaking daring new ground in fitness tech. The Jabra Elite 4 Active true wireless earbuds come complete with custom EQ, ANC, and HearThrough, along with an impressive seven-hour battery life outside their charging case. They're even rated IP57, which means they're totally sweat- and rain-resistant. You'll never be stuck inside again.
