What to Expect from Future Smartphones 2020?
If I have to visualize the future of smartphones and concepts and ideas for 2020 – here are the top 6 future ideas that will be popular in the coming years.
The focus has been entirely shifted, from large computing devices (PC and laptop) to incredibly powerful smartphones with devices like OnePlus 8 having 12 GB RAM or Samsung using its DEX technology to turn your phone into a PC.
Computers and laptops are quickly getting replaced with highly capable smartphones with ever exceeding computing power; I don’t have to switch on a laptop now for a lot of tasks.
Responsive website designs and Apps have made the internet a great place for mobiles.
Phones are no more just a mode to communicate anymore, they are used to do so much more and in ways never imagined before.
Great Battery Back-Up
The battery life is probably the weakest part of smartphone technology. They hardly last a day with high pixel resolution displays (Quad HD) and more power-hungry processors.
There is a need for compact batteries which can last 3-4 days with a single charge and should be much more compact than the current batteries.
4K Bezel-less Displays
Sony already has a smartphone with 4K display Sony Xperia Z5 – Worlds Highest 806 PPI 4K Display Smartphone Unveiled. Due to battery life constraints, 4K displays are not getting popular, but improvement in battery storage can lead to the return of 4K in mobile devices.
With Google Assist and Siri, Apple and Google are trying to bring in more artificial intelligence to mobile computing devices.
The voice recognition and contextual understanding of assistants is improving and we can expect more powerful AI-based voice assistants in the coming years.
Augmented Reality, Google’s Project Tango, was one of the promising starts. However, it has lost steam. We may see a resurgence in 2020.
Tim Cook also has said multiple times that Apple is thinking big about the Augmented reality and it could be a more prominent development even when compared to the VR.
While the virtual reality is getting some steam in recent years, there is much more to be done before the technology becomes mainstream.
Both the user experience and price for using it will come down by 2020. There will be more 3D content, videos, images, and games which can make the technology popular.
Google is working on daydream while there are several more VR developments from Samsung, Oculus, Sony, and HTC.
Seamless Connectivity (5G)
5G networks – I think the worst part of modern smartphones is the lack of seamless connectivity which kills the user experience.
The new phones in 2020 will have support for the 5G network and can have blazing-fast data speeds.
So that’s all from my side if you may like to read about top performance phones.
