3 Upcoming Technologies for Mobile Phones

One of the most frustrating qualities of modern technology is the way that it is continually changing, usually faster than most consumers are able to keep up with. 

It’s true what they say about when you purchase a new computer the technology will have already become outdated before its warranty has expired. And it makes little difference if the technology is for mobile phones, computers or audio/video equipment – they all rapidly become outdated as soon as you bring your purchase home.

Recently bought a new phone? This news might just hit you the hardest. 2019 is shaping up to be the beginning of a wave of technological advances for mobile phones. The following are some of the new technologies that will debut this year and in the near future.

Foldable Touchscreens

The idea of a foldable touchscreen for mobile devices has been floating around for several years now and finally there will be a couple of products integrating this technology on the market this year. Yup, Huawei and Samsung are both bringing mobile phones with a folding touchscreen to the market in 2019.

Both phones will have the ability to fold to where they are the size of a typical cell phone as well as being able to be unfolded so that the screen is the size of smaller tablets. Of course, the prices for these devices are expensive, so if you buy, you’ll probably want to protect them with something close to bubble wrap. Since that isn’t feasible the next best thing is to make sure you have the strongest case available for these new folding touchscreen phones.

Mobile Augmented Technology

Most cell phones act as all-in-one devices that can handle all your communication and entertainment needs. With more intelligent devices like iPhones and Samsung Galaxy on the market, cell companies have had to create new ways for a device to perform to keep consumers interested. Mobile augmented technology is one of the new technologies mobile phones will be able to perform soon.

This technology mixes accelerometers, GPS and the internet to superimpose digitally stored information on the real world. To visualize this, a good example would be when you travel to a new city. You can conceivably point your phone at a building and be able to quickly pull up the history of a building’s construction or information about any of the businesses housed in it, and so forth. All the required technology for this is already available in many mobile devices, so it is only a matter of time before this feature will be perfected and come pre-installed in new phones.

5G

Next to the folding phone, the most anticipated new technology is probably 5G mobile communications. This tech will be getting a formal kickoff at CES 2019, but the momentum will keep building throughout the year as different carriers switch to it and more advanced cell phone towers get erected.

In the three years since Verizon said it would start field-testing 5G, the concept has caused some of the most buzz in the history of technology. The main benefits for switching to 5G is that consumers will be able to use multiple devices with differing connection speeds simultaneously, have access to much more bandwidth and devices using 5G will have faster response speeds. (Basically – faster and better internet access.)

The Future of Tech

Technology lovers have a lot of new things to look forward to in 2019 and the near future. With devices equipped with an enlarged folding touchscreen, 5G communications and mobile augmented tech, the way people use mobile devices is set to change immensely. Not only will it increase interest in technology as a whole, but these advances could very well change our entire lifestyles. That is exciting indeed.

New Features Expected for Smartphones in 2019

New Features Expected for Smartphones in 2019
Every year the big smartphone manufacturers announce their new flagship phones. Usually, this means an upgrade in software and hardware that add new functionality or improves on existing technology. With the smartphone market becoming more competitive all the time, manufacturers are constantly seeking better and more innovative components to tempt customers away from their competitors. Next year’s features are as widely speculated as they are every year, but here are a few that might be in the phones of 2019.

Triple-Sensor Cameras

When cameras were first introduced into smartphones, they were basic with few features and a grainy resolution. They were certainly no match for the digital cameras of the time. However, the cameras have continued to be upgraded and improved to the point where many people now use their mobiles for capturing images, instead of taking a separate camera. The latest additions to smartphones have been dual-lenses, one is wide-angle, while the other is long distance. Both images are then combined to produce a high-quality single image. Smartphones have become powerful enough to do all of this computational image trickery in an instant, which could lead to countless possibilities in the future. It is widely expected that the smartphones of 2019 will feature triple-sensors for the first time. The additional sensor could help to improve photos in low light conditions and make the images even crisper and looking more natural. It is also thought that there will continue to be improvements in image stabilization in photos and videos.

Privacy Protection

In 2018, new data protection laws came into force in Europe. GDPR, or the General Data Protection Regulation, was designed to hold businesses accountable to the personal information it keeps on their customers. It is also aimed at telling companies what they can and cannot do with customers’ data. The law mirrors a general feeling among people around the world about what information companies hold and what they do with it. Smartphone companies and software manufacturers are now increasingly aware that data is extremely important to consumers. Next year should see a lot more from companies on securing their products and restricting the amount of access advertisers have. Apple has already made strides in this direction,and the other smartphone companies are expected to follow.

Fully Waterproof Phones

Buying a smartphone or getting one on a contract is getting more expensive all the time. Some customers seek finance like those on this website to buy their new phones. With the newest versions of flagship phones now attracting a price tag of over $1000, there is a need from consumers for them to be tough. Many of the manufacturers have been developing their waterproof features which have led to many new phones having some level of protection. However, a fully waterproof phone is still one of the most requested features by customers, so this could be one of the new announcements seen next year. However, the engineering needed to create speakers and charging ports that can be totally waterproof is hard. Could it mean the end of the charging port in favor of wireless-onlycharging?

5G And Faster Internet

It is widely thought that the chip fabricators and phone manufacturers are getting their phone ready next year to include 5G technology. One of the biggest modem companies Qualcomm has said that they have a large number of consumer-level chips available for the smartphone sector. The emergence of 5G means a substantial upgrade on the download speeds over 4G, with potential speeds up to one thousand times faster. It means you will be able to download your favorite movie or box set in seconds, and it will make streaming on mobiles a better experience. However, although smartphones will be rolling 5G out from 2019, the network upgrades needed to deal with the increased speed won’t be widely available until around 2020.

Augmented Reality

Otherwise known as AR, augmented reality has been getting better as smartphones get faster and more powerful. New advances in facial recognition software have also made it possible for game creators to find new ways to use AR in their games. Smartphone makers Samsung and Apple have already developed emojis that can use your face and voice to become interactive. Next year should see this technology being used for more interaction and security.

Under-Screen Sensors

As screen sizes have increased and bezels have become thinner, there has been the inevitable question of where to put the front-facing camera and biometric sensor. Some companies like Apple, have decided to go for the ‘notch’ approach which sees a near bezel-free screen except for a small notch for the camera and earphone vent. Others have chosen to place biometricfingerprint sensors on the back of the phone and place the camera at the bottom of the screen. These solutions are not ideal, so smartphone makers have been working on cameras and fingerprint sensors that are integrated into the screen itself. There have already been prototypes made that have seen positive feedback, so it doesn’t seem long before we will see the first smartphone with this new technology.

Tougher Screens

Along with waterproofing, another request that is often heard from customers is stronger screens. It seems that no matter how strong the manufacturers claim their screens are, there are still many incidents of cracking reported. Most smartphone makers use Gorilla Glass on their phones which is designed to be tough and durable. However, some companies like Apple have been testing stronger materials like sapphire displays. These displays are much tougher and scratch resistant, but, they are difficult to manufacture in large quantities. They are currently mostly used in luxury watches, although if the process can be improved, it could be coming to smartphones soon.

The improvements and development of smartphones are staggering, and it seems that there are still many avenues manufacturers have yet to explore. As long as customers ask for improvements, they will continue to push the envelope in pursuit of the perfect all-round phone.

3 Advances in Bio-metrics and Smartphone Security

The term “biometrics” is one of those words that many of us are familiar with, but we might not be able to define it if we were on a quiz show. To help you win that top prize on Jeopardy someday, biometrics are body measurements. Thanks to some pretty amazing advancements in technology, we now use different types of biometrics as security features in our devices like smartphones. As Study notes, biometric security measures the unique characteristics that we have in our bodies; in turn, these biological traits will verify who we are and give us access to our portable devices. 

Or, as Android Central states, instead of having to remember the bunch of letters, numbers and characters that make up a traditional password, in the land of biometric security, we are the password. Here are three of biometric's coolest applications:

Iris Recognition

Iris recognition works by measuring and scanning a smartphone owner’s iris pattern. Each one of us has a different pattern of color our irises, so smartphones that are equipped with this form of biometric security can scan the user’s eye to verify his or her identity. For example, if you own a Samsung Galaxy S8, to use the iris scanner to authenticate yourself, you will lift the phone to eye level at arm’s length, and wait for the innovative scanner to capture the iris data from your peepers. The Galaxy S8 is able to do this process pretty quickly and unlock your

phone. The technology also works from a longer distance and will not get fussy and stop working if your eyes are not perfectly centered with the phone.

Fingerprint Scanners

Another cool type of biometric security involves fingerprint scanners. As you have probably been told from the time you were a kid, your fingerprints are unique, so they are a reliable way to allow — or not allow — someone into a smartphone. Fingerprint scanners work by measuring the arches, loops and whorls on the finger. If the sensor detects your unique print, it will let you get into your phone.

As M2Sys.com notes, while fingerprint scanners used to be used only by the government, the military and law enforcement, they have become increasingly popular over the past five years and are now found in a number of smartphones, including the Touch ID feature that is found on many recent-model iPhones.

Facial Recognition
As the name implies, this type of biometric security uses your face to gain access to your smartphone. Apple announced Face ID not too long ago, and it has gotten a lot of attention as people wonder if it is possible to “fool” this form of security with a photo or other methods. 

As Wired notes, a team from the website tried hard to crack the Face ID system in a number of ways without any success. The new Apple iPhone X, which features Face ID, uses more than a 2D facial check; it will use a grid of 30,000 infrared dots projected onto a face, along with an infrared camera reading the distortion of the grid to create a 3D image of your face.

As the years go by, it will be interesting to see what other advances will be made in biometric security and its application to smartphones. It is nice to know that we no longer have to recall complicated passwords to access our trusty devices and rely instead on certain unique parts of our bodies.

Motorola set to release a new boot animation


Hellomoto indeed! Remember we told you about the Motorola logo making a comeback to Moto boot animations after being cut out for this year's roadmap? Well, Motorola and Lenovo have made a few edits to the last one they announced, and Moto is already showing it up in some of its Twitter accounts.

The new boot animation is similar to what you saw last time, but one of the things that got some criticism from fans and tech sites was the fact that Lenovo seemed to punch the batwing logo out of the picture, as if they were replacing Motorola. Some Motorola fans complained about this, because it seemed like Moto(rola) was punched/kicked out by its parent company.



But Lenovo did listen to those comments and decided to change it up a bit. Now, instead of the Lenovo logo kicking out the Motorola logo, the batwing rotates and becomes the Lenovo logo, and then it rotates once again to become the batwing, and so on.

Although some might find this isn't a big deal, I think it's quite meaningful. Lenovo and the Moto team listened to the fans when they asked for the Motorola logo to be back as boot animation for Moto phones, and now they listened to the fans when they asked to modify it. It speaks good about the company and its respect for the Motorola legacy.

You can check out the new boot animation with its new ending here:








New $99 Android Flip Phone


Remember flip phones? We sure do. Flip phones were the most popular thing last decade, and now seem to be making a comeback. What we have here is the new ZTE CYMBAL-T, an interesting phone with a horrible name.




The new ZTE flip phone was just launched in the US and it's going to be an affordable $99 phone. It comes with a 3.5" touchscreen so you can operate the phone with either your keyboard or screen. There's also an external screen which tells you the time and recent notifications.

The phone also comes with a Snapdragon MSM8909 quad-core processor, clocked at 1.1GHz and 1GB of RAM. There's a 5MP/2MP set up, and it comes with Lollipop 5.0 according to ZTE.





What do you think? Do you still want a flip phone? Will you wait for Motorola or Samsung to release one?


Motorola Pulse Max now in three new colors


The Motorola Accessories division, now under new owner, Binatone Global, seems to be on a roll. We talked about the Motorola Coin yesterday, but now we have something else to show you: the new Pulse Max color versions!

Yeah, it might not be as exciting as yesterday's wearable device, but hey...there are three new colors for the Pulse Max, making it five available colors. The new versions will come in blue, red, and purple.



The Motorola Pulse Max features a 40nm driver, according to Motorola Accessories, and its earheadphones isolate ambient sound. Plus, it's light and its ear cups rotate. The Max was released in India and the UK some time ago, and it's reaching more countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia right now. No word on US availability, though.

Here are the individual pictures of each color. Which one will you choose?
