The world of smartphones is ever-changing and evolving with the introduction of new technologies. Equipped with talk, text, multimedia, games, web browsing, and several other capabilities, smartphones are essentially pocket sized miniature computers that enable users to take part in a wide range of practical tasks and enjoy entertainment, at their convenience, on the go.
Todayâs top-of-the-line smartphones, such as the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One, Google Nexus 4, and Nokia Lumia 920, have made the best list because they are designed with the latest smartphone technologies. Some of this includes video-streaming, 4G connectivity, built-in high-quality camera lenses, and awesome apps that benefit user productivity.
That said, aside from continuing to provide the latest in mobile app development and upgrading current features, many people wonder what type of new technology future smartphones will possess. Although experts have a hard enough time accurately predicting what will happen in the next decade, the following are two technologies that have generated a lot of interest in the mobile industry:
AR Technology â Augmented reality (AR) is a unique form of computer technology that broadens a userâs sensory experience through graphics, sounds, video, and even GPS data. In other words, AR enhances what a smartphone user would see in real life using computer data, expanding on their âliveâ experience. For instance, by pointing the camera of an AR-enhanced phone anywhere on a street, an information overlay is displayed that tells the user where the nearest restaurants are located.
3D screens with holographic projections - The screen resolution of smartphones have really come a long way and Appleâs âRetina Displayâ certainly takes the cake in terms of offering a screen resolution that is so sharp it canât even be distinguished by the human eye. In addition, there are already a few 3D smartphones on the market, such as Motorolaâs MT810 and the LG Optimus 3D. So, whatâs left for 3D in the future? Why, holographic projections of course! Instead of just viewing high definition 3D images, users can interact with images that pop right out in front of them.
Other technology that looks promising for the future includes flexible screens, built-in projector screens, and flawless voice control.
While no one may know for sure what smartphone technology will look like in the future, one thing is for certain â itâs bound to be nothing short of amazing.
