The upcoming smartphones are most likely to be more closely incorporated into our routine lives than ever before. Quite a few industry experts, as well as futurologists, anticipated that smartphones will become like a remote control near in the future whereas others have predicted that Next Generation Smartphones are almost ready to run our lives.
Everything aside, one thing is for sure that over the past couple of years, smartphones and network technology both have developed quite quickly and it’s going to be an amazing journey, without a doubt.
What Industry Experts Expect from Future Smartphones?
Taking a look at concept phones is an awesome way to see how future smartphones will be produced. We have compiled a list of some things we might expect from upcoming/future smartphones.
Smartphone Industry also strives to improve its products’ security and make their phones environmentally friendly with scientists looking at biodegradable materials and cleaner energy charging. Kyocera unveiled a solar-powered device at the 2016 Mobile World Congress. But the device will not eliminate the need for a wall charger by itself in the very near future. This smartphone was mainly intended for recreational users and for anyone else, such as campers or skiers, who is likely to stay away from a power source for a while.
Only a physical keyboard was the most important way to use a phone. Even touchscreens that we are using nowadays eventually replaced this. We can now communicate with our smartphone using our voices through services like Google Assistant and Samsung Bixby. We think mind control is the next step in this development. The technology will allow you to accomplish any task with your mind through touch or speech. You would be able to open an app of your choice as well as play a certain video on a futuristic version on YouTube.
Through mind control, the use of smartphones would be much faster. You would not need to look for a device any longer to open it or stretch the finger to the top of your screen to tap it. Every job can be completed in a heart-beat. We’re still far away from such a reality, but scientists are making progress in this area. As announced in 2017, the Building 8 division of Facebook creates technology to help people control their devices with their minds.
Charging Battery Over-the-Air
Let’s admit that average smartphone battery sucks whether you have a high-end smartphone like Samsung Galaxy Note 10 or a mid-range phone with approx. 3000mAh battery. Everyone looks at least for two days of average use. After the battery runs out, you must either plug it into for several hours or position it in a wireless charge pad if it is enabled by your phone
In the future, things might be quite different. An Energous company develops systems to charge batteries over the air. Place your smartphone away from WattUp Mild Field transmitter approx. 3 feet and charging begin immediately. But let’s go a little bit further.
Imagine a future in which these transmitters are much stronger and can charge air-to-air devices at great distances. Smartphones could be positioned in different countries like today’s mobile towers and would charge your smartphone continuously from a distance, making sure that you wouldn’t run out of juice.
In March 2014, rumours flew over the unreleased iPhone 6 with holographic functions which allowed you to interact on virtual displays. The demonstration video shows the user interacting simultaneously with all three screens and even playing a game projected over the camera. No wonder that this technology wasn’t onto the iPhone 6 or even on the iPhone 7, and there’s no indication that the next year’s iPhones will have any holographic functionality.
Nevertheless, holographic phones may be a possibility one day. In particular, if there is anything to do with the HoloFlex prototype proposed by Queen’s Researchers in Canada. The HoloFlex is holographic and versatile, so the users rotate the interface from different angles and interact with images on the screen. That way, you would be able to view the 3D display at different angles. HoloFlex is known as the first flexible holographic smartphone worldwide and is still in development and wouldn’t be available so soon.
Some experts think mobile phones change the way we learn and teach in the not-too-distance future. For over one in three school kids possessing phones, the future of learning and teaching devices is highly possible, both with camera and voice recorder phones. We saw educational institutions already using texts to alert parents to tranquility and even to remind students of changes in their classrooms.
The multi-functional nature of phones could be made more and more popular as both learning and teaching aids, especially as quality camera mobile phones became available more widely and cheaper. For addition, mobile phones are recommended for taking pictures and making notes on field trips to create a more involved and casual approach to education.
