Mobile phones have been a part of our life since the last two decades, and they have only evolved so much in the last one. The mobile phones started with just a basic device to contact your loved ones and now have become integral to our life and helps us at every corner of our life.
Smartphones started evolving in the late of the last decade with Google buying Android Inc. and launching the first Android device in 2008, it brought a storm in the mobile phone industry as it matched the ease and GUI of the famous iPhone. Android and iOS can be both credited to start the evolution of phones and transforming them into smartphones.
But if you thought that Smartphones cannot surprise you anymore, and you have seen it all, let’s just prepare to get bamboozled!!
With the world not even properly accustomed to the 4G and with even some parts of the world not even getting basic internet services let alone 4G, the world will be soon preparing to see 5G internet in most of its region by 2020. As of now, 5G is only being currently used in some parts of the USA, South Korea and China. Most of the hyperlocal businesses like Swiggy are in need of 5G technology to be incorporated for their business development.
While still being in the testing phase, 5G provides amazing data speeds, both uploading and downloading speed.
According to ITU guidelines, 5G network will provide you with a speed way beyond your imagination. With 5G giving (at its peak) 20 gb/s for downloading and 10 gb/s for uploading. Latency in the network is also as low as just 4 milliseconds in the case of mobile 5G network. While at its best it could get as low as 1 millisecond. What is latency you may ask? Latency is the the time data packets spend in a round trip around so the lower the latency the better!!
Lets move on to the next technology that will probably blow up in the next year.
Imagine a tablet sized phone with all the features and more of the current best phones in the market but you don’t have to bother about where to put them or even if your jeans pocket will fit them because they can be folded.
Foldable phones will be expensive! Probably even more than some of the iPhones but lets be honest, they would be PRETTY AWESOME!!! Samsung is probably going to be the first one to launch foldable phones as they showed one of the prototype not too much time ago.
While Samsung may be the only one right now, Huawei is also not much behind.Huawei CEO Richard Yu said that they too are working on foldable phones at the launch of Mate 20.
Your phones can and probably will soon be able to be folded like your clothes and put in anywhere you like. Though if you are an iPhone user sadly there is no news of Apple launching its own foldable phones. So you probably got to wait before Apple begin its journey in this direction.
Artificial intelligence has quickly and quite impactfully changed the phones of today’s generation. With AI predicting and suggesting you the videos you probably want to watch to AI help you in predicting the coming weather forecast for the next few days.
The most common form of AI that you will most likely see is the Google assistant and Siri for your iPhone. These chat bots get smarter and better with every incoming update and we could only expect them to get better.
The camera in your phone even is now getting smarter and able to recognize the faces of people, age and even gender in some cases. All of this is bound to get better in the next year.
The search engines also uses artificial intelligence to get the best ads and search results for you. Search engines also uses AI user’s inputs to get better at their job as AI uses tries to find patterns into human working around the software and then uses these patterns to predict the best for the user.
The Bottom Line
So prepare yourself to be blown away by the incoming technologies in the next year or so. While these may take some more time to get into the lives of a normal user they will improve our life for sure in the coming years.
