Smartphone buffs can expect much in the existing year 2017 as there are lots of trends that need to be watched out. Smartphone devices this year will be meager, faster, and maybe a little smarter than the way you think.
Those who are fans of virtual reality can expect the same in the recent Smartphones, and they will also have improved graphics, better resolution screens, and enhanced storage. Above all, you will be using your Smartphones when it involves paying for products and logging into websites.
Without beating around the bush, here are 5 Smartphone trends to watch out for in 2017:
Up-to-the-minute designs: The up-to-the-minute Smartphone will be available in awe-inspiring designs. According to the telecommunication experts, Apple is expected to give a renovation to its legendary iPhone design while Samsung becoming visible with a folding Smartphone. It is although uncertain that these will happen, similar to changes that take place every year, we can expect something new.
Quicker chips: Graphics will be quieter and applications will give a better performance on next year’s Smartphones. Qualcomm has recently announced the Snapdragon 835, which is allowed to be installed in a handful of premium Android smartphones from leading mobile companies. Some may choose MediaTek’s Helio X30, which has 10 CPU cores, the leading number of mobile processors. That is a plenty of processing firepower, and handsets will move closer to PCs in total performance.
Virtual reality: The point of accelerating mobile devices is to enable them to run applications such as virtual reality, which need weighty resources. Also, it will be feasible to plug handsets into Google’s DayDream View VR headset for watching movies, playing games, or roaming VR worlds.
VR is now confined to a handful of handsets such as Samsung’s Galaxy S7, but it will be available to more sophisticated and mid-range phones next year. The VR smartphones will need to have high-resolution displays to deliver an engaging visual experience.
Faster LTE: LTE speeds will receive an improved boost with latest and cutting-edge technologies. Smartphones such as the Galaxy S7 and Apple’s iPhone 7 can download data over LTE networks at a maximum speed of 600Mbps (bits per second), and upload data at 150Mbps. Download speeds could reach near 1Gbps with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon X16 modem, which should reach devices in the second half of 2016. Gaining that speed is also based on the network capabilities of a carrier.
Faster charging: Smartphones will charge much faster using USB-C cables, which are known to supply more power to a battery. Another cutting-edge technology such as Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4, which will enable Smartphones to run for five hours after simply five minutes of charging. That cutting-edge technology will be accessible in Smartphones next year.
