Faster And Smarter Future Smartphones: What Possibilities They Hold For Us

Smartphones have become a part of our personal and professional life. With new technologies cropping up everyday smartphones will become an indispensable part of our survival on this planet. It is interesting to ponder over the question as to what today's smartphone will be like in the future, maybe by the next year or five years down the line? There is no way to possibly gauge the future; however, looking at upcoming innovations for smartphones we can make decent predictions about it.

Let's take a look at what the forthcoming generation of smartphones holds for us:

Enhanced Designs

Expect future mobile phones to not only have advanced features from their existing smartphones but also unique designs. Smartphones are not just a necessity but a lifestyle for today's urban user. According to IDC Mobile Technology and Trends, smartphone sizes will nearly remain the same from 3.7 to 4.3- inch display size. Smartphones might become leaner, but they might not shrink in size. There could be transparent smartphone designs on display. There is a huge possibility, of improvement in the dual-screen foldable design for smartphones.

More interestingly future smartphones will come in customizable designs which users can shape in any size they want. Ultimately, users expect great functionality with appealing designs and future smartphones will be geared to merge the two aspects much better.

Elastic Screens

Future smartphones will come with paperlike computer displays, made almost entirely of plastic, making them durable, portable and movable. OLED (Organic-Light-Emitting-Diode) will enable easily foldable screens, which will be as thin as paper with dual display. Users will be able to run two different displays at the same time. For instance, watching movie on one screen and reading newspapers on the other. Users will also be able to take advantage of a large screen display while maintaining a small size of the device. Smartphones may encompass inbuilt projectors which can set-up projections up to 50 inches in size. This will be a direct boost for the mobile gaming industry.

What's more, this new gaming interface will be voice-enabled and will eliminate the need of manual controls. Flexible screens will use the 3-dimensional space within your phone. Hence, they can be much faster and better in performance.

Moving from 2-D to 3-D Displays

Smartphones will move the existing 2-D displays to 3-D screens. This will be more advanced from Apple's retina display capability that offers a screen resolution sharper than the human eye. Next to follow will be holograms, which will combine a 3D feature with a smartphone projection. With such technology users will be able to make changes like pull, compress and so on to images, content and graphics just by the touch of their finger.

Moreover, such technology is fully realistic and provides every user the freedom of movement, without forcing them to wear special glasses or headsets. Future holograms will be able to detect their users and appropriately change projections as per user preferences. Hologram advertising will receive a huge boost from this.

NFC Enabled Smartphones

According to the latest forecasts by Juniper Research, one in five smartphones will have Near Field Communication (NFC) by 2014. NFC enabled smartphones offer innumerable value-added services to its users. From booking tickets to providing secure storages, it is being forecast that NFC will capture 300 million smartphone users by 2014. There are numerous reasons as to how NFC will benefit the future smartphones - NFC is easy to set-up and use, it can be used from anywhere, and it offers secure data storage facility to its users. NFC is a user-centric technology which will revolutionize the future smartphone market.

In Conclusion

These features sound interesting and will definitely enhance the user experience, in a big way. Simultaneously, users must consider certain doubts before passing the final verdict: the concerns about pricing, battery consumption, and privacy issues. As of now, we can just wait and watch what the future smartphone technology holds for us.
