Most of the features in Smartphone technology are now standard among manufacturers and models. The yearly improvements made to the favourite features like better cameras, faster processors, and screen display are reasonably predictable and some of the advances that we expect. We need to understand what the future holds for the smartphone and what we hope.
One of the things that are great is face ID. This app uses a particular camera that recognises users through a facial map comprised of thousands of invisible dots.
Here are some features that might develop over the coming years.
Although this feature is available for some time now, the hope is to increase the range of freedom and convenience with long-range technologies. At this point, we have a mat that charges the phone with a flow of energy, but its range capability is not significant. In 2015 a wireless charging system was introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show. This system comprised of a wall-mounted power transmitter that finds devices via Bluetooth and sends out energy in the form of radio waves that bounds of from surfaces to reach the receiver. These waves transform into direct current.
People rely on the Global Positioning System or GPS to successfully navigate their surroundings and to arrive at their destinations on time. Broadcom announced that it had developed a new chip that would provide a more pinpointed location that what is happening now. Other improvements will be improved battery life for the devices proving the chip uses less battery power than the previous one.
Samsung has been mocking their customers with flexible screen technology for some time now. Displays are made to look paper thin and can be rolled up like scrolls. It gives different form factors like pocket-sized flat screens that would be foldable to fit into the wallet of the customer and bigger versions that might flip open like books. Users will go beyond touch-based gestures as bending the technical device can become a whole new way of interfacing with on-screen content. Shapeshifting devices can easily fashion into wearable devices by wrapping it around your wrist. Developers make promises that soon we will be able to fold our smartphones into tablets.
With the advancements in 3D television, virtual reality consoles are offering the users a more significant visual experience. The developers of the smartphone are trying to figure out ho9w to seamlessly integrate 3D properties with the more intuitive and familiar touchscreen interface. Some people in the industry are pushing the concept of holographic phones. The developers use light diffraction to project a virtual three-dimensional image of objects. A prototype does exist featuring a flexible display. Users can manipulate objects by bending and twisting the device.
It is exciting to see what has been made possible with smartphone technology. We are anxiously waiting for these revolutionary ideas to come true and might not wait too long.
