MWC in Barcelona is drawing to a close. We’ve seen foldable phones and a lot of talk about 5G. Another of the hot topics was Huawei, and the U.S. governments ongoing bid to claims that the company spies on behalf of the Chinese state. The New York Times has a rundown of what happened at conference.
