This tells us the next OnePlus flagship could support Wireless Charging They added that they appreciate GSMA’s efforts to control the risk, however, even if the risk is low, the company cannot guarantee the health and safety of its employees and visitors. Ericsson’s President and CEO, Börje Ekholm said “The health and safety of our employees, customers and other stakeholders are our highest priority. This is not a decision we have taken lightly. We were looking forward to showcasing our latest innovations at MWC in Barcelona. It is very unfortunate, but we strongly believe the most responsible business decision is to withdraw our participation from this year’s event.” As an alternative, Ericsson plans to showcase their latest portfolio and innovations to their customers with a localised “Ericsson Unboxed” in the respective home markets. LG, Amazon, Nvidia and ZTE Other tech giants have also announced withdrawal from MWC and this includes LG, Amazon and Nvidia. According to The Verge , ZTE had also cancelled its press conference but they will still have a booth to demonstrate its new 5G devices. In the initial report, it was mentioned that their cancellation was partly due to travel and visa delays. It was also reported that ZTE is an overly courteous company and they don’t want to make people uncomfortable especially when China has the largest number of 2019 Novel Coronavirus cases. GSMA increases measures for MWC2020 GSMA, the organiser of MWC has also issued a statement that emphasises its increased efforts to minimise the risk of the coronavirus at the event. As a health and safety measure, all travellers from Hubei province are not allowed to access the event and those that have been to China must show evidence that they are out of China 14 days before the event through a passport stamp or health certificate.
