Smartphones are getting smarter day by day, their capabilities and intelligence are reaching new heights. Look at the latest Micromax mobile phones or the Intex mobile phones or Lava mobile phones, see what they offered a few years back and what they are offering now. The technological aspects of new handsets are moving ahead in leaps and bounds. Even the most basic phones in the smartphones category are capable of clicking pictures, taking videos, supporting multimedia games, browsing the web, entertainment, all other possible things that anyone can imagine. The present day researchers in this area are directed towards further improvements and turning these handsets into all-in-one gadgets. Shortly you will have phones with integrated, high-quality camera lenses, support for better productivity, connectivity, and more sophisticated mobile apps. To give you a better preview of future, here are a few technologies that you can expect in your smartphone.
Augmented Reality (AR) –
The phrase ‘Augmented Reality’ is used for the latest computer technology that can be perceived through our senses. It is an enhanced perception with the help of video, graphics, GPS data, and sound input. In other words, AR helps you with better information by bringing together computer data with the reality.
The most recent example of this is the Pokemon Go game that took the smartphone world by storm a few days back. Just start your camera and point your phone in any direction and click “live”, it will give you all details about what cafes and dining places you can find nearby. These portable devices, smartphones act as smart platforms for AR to function. You can just raise your camera to get all information about the place or thing you are searching.
Most AR based apps make use of GPS to facilitate data recovery and latest information about the subject. For now, it is available in some smartphones but the day is not far when it will be a standard feature of every single phone.
Flexible Screens –
Soon you may have phones that can launch bigger screens on demand. Imagine watching movies or videos over your walls or ceilings with digital sound without paying a single penny to movie theaters. These screens can be folded and unfolded as per requirement courtesy the Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) technology. It is a paper-thin screen capable of projecting future-feature smartphones from both sides.
So with the help of these screens, you can show movies to your friends and use the other end to keep a check on all settings. The physical flexibility of screens also opens up doors for wearable smartphones that can easily be adorned in place of carrying one in hand. Nokia is moving ahead in this direction swiftly.
Seamless Voice Control –
It is one of the features that has attracted almost every mobile maker in recent years. The beginning of this revolution came from Siri that could search and answer any query on voice command. Siri was, no doubt, a breakthrough in voice recognition and control programming. In place of recognizing commands through sound waves, it interprets syntax and diction like humans identify speech.
It is a Natural Language User Interface that is way more accurate and effective, than normal voice recognition systems. MIT, Stanford, and Caltech research teams are looking over to find the future of this technology. Seamless voice control will play a huge role in making smartphones smarter in coming days. The combined gestures of AR, voice control, and smart screens will take the smartphone interactions to an entirely new level.
3D Holograms And Screens – For now, Apple’s ‘Retina Display’ defines the peak of smartphone screen resolution. It offers a resolution that is sharper than the one human eye is capable of perceiving.
The mobile companies are now ready to move a step ahead and are now working on 3D logos, holograms, and screens. There are very few 3D smartphones on this planet, for now, you can check out LG Optimus 3D, Samsung AMOLED 3D and Motorola MT810. And what comes ahead of 3D.
The future of this technology can be holographic projections. The holographic projections, in short, will bring forth a combination of 3D future-features-smart-phones that will give the ability to project from smartphones. Mobiledia Network Master Image 3D recently exhibited their recent development related to the projection system; it will allow the smartphone handsets to show 3D holograms. This feature has unlimited potential related to holographic projection via phones. 3D displays are integrated with movement related aspects about user interactions through the phone.
For example, it will allow you to resize your images and pictures with your hands, you can always pull and compress the file as per your choice and requirements, you can also move the object by just grabbing or nabbing them.
