The technologyprogressing faster and fasterand what today seems unthinkable, tomorrow will be a reality. In recent years this has been noticed especially in the world of 'smartphones'. And is that the companies take out every few months devices that, in most cases, leave outdated to their predecessors and with which you get an almost unstoppable impulse to change mobile at the time.
This year that ends has left us some clues of the trends that we will see next year in mobile technology.Filtrations, patents or 'smartphones'that we have already seen years help us to understand a little better how the phones will be in 2019.
The first smartphones with 5G mobile technology will arrive in the first half of 2019. There have already been several brands that have announced their devices with fifth generation data connections, includingSamsung, Huawei or Motorola.
On the contrary, despite being one of the most beloved brands,ManzanaHe has already assured that he is not in a hurry to get an iPhone 5G and that he will wait at least until 2020 to do it.
This fifth generation of mobile telephony will provide the user with a much faster connection, massive bandwidth and greater network reliability.5G will not affect only smartphones.
This faster and more expansive wireless network will also benefit the so-called Internet of Things, virtual reality or the vehicles of the future.
The first flexible mobiles
We do not know exactly when 2019 will arrive, but what is certain is that thefirst flexible mobilesthey will start selling the next year.SamsungIt was the first company to announce this revolutionary technology.
The South Korean giant presented a little over a month agoYour 'Infinity Flex',a folding screenthat will incorporate in its new line of smartphones and that will combine the advantages of a compact phone and those of a screen of 7.3 inches.
This is Samsung's folding cell phone. L. T.
Although Samsung will be the first company to launch flexible 'smartphones', others such as Huawei, Lenovo and Xiaomi have already announced that they are working on similar projects.
The rise of artificial intelligence
If something made us clear the last edition of theMobile World Congressis that telephone companies are betting more and more on theartificial intelligence(IA). This will be one of the basic features of the 'smartphones' that we will see in stores this 2019.
Theartificial intelligencewill give mobile devices improvements that go beyond the well-known virtual assistants. Thanks to the AI, our telephones will be able to optimize their energy consumption, anticipating and automatically resolving actions that we usually carry out with them.
Facial recognition or camera are other characteristics of a 'smartphone' that artificial intelligence will improve in the coming months. Thanks to it, even the most inexperienced can take impressive photos by improving the framing, definition or lighting.
A design without frames
If we have to talk about design, the last devices that big companies have left us make it clear that the tendency is to reduce frames to the minimum possible. We have seen it inthe new iPhone XS, the device presented byManzanaonly a couple of months ago and that will surely set precedents, or inthe Sony XZ2.In both cases the designs are more rounded than those of their predecessors.
This tendency to eliminate the edges will hide the front cameras almost completely. The developers will integrate them into a small hole andthey will eliminate the 'notch', a design concept that groups the sensors, the speaker and the camera in a notch at the top of the screen and that Android made fashionable.
Samsung will be the first to market this type of cameras integrated into the screen next year. The South Korean company presented only a few days ago its Galaxy A8s, a device with Infinity-0 design, by which the camera is in an isolated module and integrated in the upper left corner. Thanks to thisthe screen occupies 90% of the 'smartphone'.
Cameras and more cameras
This latest device from Samsung has also shown us another of the trends that we had already seen in some of the most select mobile phones this year and thatwill reach the mid-range this 2019. The phone has a main camera with three sensors in the back with different functions: wide angle, autofocus and blur.
Because in the coming months the cameras of the 'smartphones' will not only improve in their number of megapixels, but also in their number of sensors. And it seems that the race to improve the photographs has only just begun, since recentlyLGbeat all the records andpatented a system of 16 camerasfor one of your devices.
