The Future of Mobile Phones

With the consumer electronic market growing rapidly, it begs the questions of what the future holds. Growing concerns about the technological capacity of current devices make us wonder if there will be a dramatic “takeover” of artificial intelligence becoming permanently integrated within us like a scene out of a dramatic sci-fi movie.

 

While this type of technology seems plausible, it’s safe to assume that we won’t have to worry about Skynet taking over for at least another decade or so.

 

So what does that mean for our near future of mobile devices?

 

Well, good news, you’re already probably seeing the start of the majority of features that are being introduced by some of the world’s leading tech-giants. Here are a few important features to note that have already begun their prototype phases or are already in the preliminary stages of production.

 

Holographic displays

Surely just a rumor, however, many independent designers and developers have taken the initiative to try and turn this highly desired feature, once seen only in movies,  into everyday reality.

 

Flexible frames

This feature has already arrived with the Galaxy Fold by Samsung. It’s safe to assume many competitors will also have their own attempt at creating foldable devices that flex to implement more functionality in design.

 

Educational tools

With a global pandemic and no resolution in sight, it’s safe to assume that phones and computers will need to implement new features to help shape our future and the way our children learn.

 

Eco-friendly devices

A necessity when it comes to not only improving the design, device longevity and power life mean harnessing new strategies to create the devices that we so deeply rely on while still maintaining the balance of our eco-infrastructure and reducing our carbon footprint.

 

Companionship and smart integration

“Hey, Siri…”, “Hey, Alexa…” have become phrases way to common that we almost treat these smart AI learning scripts as friends or family who remind and assist us with everyday tasks. The future of smart integration comes with total synchronicity and seamless usage.
