Smartphones are becoming more and more powerful at a rapidly increasing rate. They aren’t just becoming more sophisticated, but the rate of development is also accelerating. This means that you can expect amazing new phones coming out every year.
Here’s what you can expect from smartphones this year.
5G is the next generation of wireless broadband that’s 10 times faster than 4G. This technology is super-fast and will allow you to download full movies in seconds. 5G networks use higher frequency bands than 4G, which give them more capacity to carry data at faster speeds while also broadcasting over larger areas.
Your phone will be able to access the internet and it will be like using your wired broadband connection.
In addition to faster wireless networks, 5G will also introduce a new generation of Wi-Fi technologies. This includes the “wireless fiber,” which is a combination of Wi-Fi and fiber optic cables that can potentially allow speeds up to 100 times faster than 4G. The “wireless fiber” relies on extremely short wavelengths in the 60GHz range, which are capable of delivering speeds up to 100 gigabits per second.
The Razr phone from Motorola was a hugely popular phone when it first came out in 2004 because of its sleek design and unique flip-out screen. At the time, it was also one of the most expensive phones ever made, costing around $800.
Although technology has advanced since then, we haven’t really seen a new generation of foldable smartphones until now.
Let’s be honest, the current state of cellphone design is BORING. They all look the same. A new flip phone design can be a refreshing change. Also, it’s cool when you flip your phone shut after a call.
More Powerful Smartphone Cameras
Phone manufacturers are cramming more and more powerful cameras. And they’re incorporating more types of cameras too! In the future, expect to see phones that come with as many as 7 different cameras. You’ll be able to switch between front and rear cameras, wide-angle lenses, standard lenses, infrared sensors for night vision, 3D scanners, and even microscopic cameras.
The first phone with a triple camera was introduced by Chinese company Xiaomi in 2017. Now, Huawei is taking it to the next level with its new phone that has a whopping 5 rear cameras. It’s called the P20 Pro and features 3 different types of cameras to take photos in lowlight conditions, record 4K video at 60FPS, produce super slow-motion videos, and much more.
It’s now pretty common for high-end smartphones to have 108 MP main cameras plus a slew of secondary cameras. Expect to take your selfie game to the next level this 2022.
Google’s Pixel 6 Pro has a screen resolution of 3,120 by 1,440 pixels while the iPhone 13 boasts 2,532 by 1,170 pixels screen resolution. You can expect other flagship phones to follow suit.
You’ll be able to watch your favorite shows and movies and play games in all their high-resolution glory.
More Processing Power
We’re already seeing chipsets that are around 7nm in size. That’s about 100 times smaller than the thickness of human hair. The next step is to go down to 5nm or even 3nm, which should give processors an extra boost of processing power.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset used in most flagship smartphones currently maxes out at 10nm.
You’ll be able to play even the most tasking games on your mobile phone, no sweat.
Smartphones are getting more powerful and innovative with each new release. This year, we can expect to see foldable phones, more powerful cameras, high-resolution graphics, and even more processing power. With all of these advancements in technology, it’s hard not to get excited about the possibilities for the future of mobile devices!
