TCL has announced the cancellation of its global press event it was due to hold on February 22 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, due to concerns over the spread of the coronavirus.

The manufacturer and Alcatel brand licencee’s presence at the event is otherwise unaffected. It will be present at MWC from February 24-27 showcasing its newest devices.

In a statement, the manufacturer said: “Given the recent global health concerns due to the spread of the 2019-nCoV virus, and out of an abundance of caution and care for our staff, customers, press and other guests, TCL Communication is cancelling its global press event for MWC 2020, which was planned for 22 February 2020.

“This decision does not impact any other MWC 2020 activities planned by the company and TCL will still announce its latest mobile devices and showcase them at its booth in the Fira Gran Via – Hall 3, Stand 3D11 – from 24-27 February as scheduled.”

Earlier today, Sony announced it would be pulling out from the event, making it the fifth to do so following Amazon, NVidia, Ericsson and LG.
