The Presentation in 2007 of the firstApple iPhone 4s model that was launched ¸ smartphone concept and in less than a decade has developed complete mobile operating systems, banks with millions of applications and utilities, and phones with increasingly sophisticated designs.
How will cell phones in a few years? What will be able to do? In this post we put visionaries to analyze the course of cell phones in the future.
The vision of the future Business
In 2011 Microsoft introduced its own version of how it believes it will be the world in 2020. In it we see not only cell phone of the future, but also business cards, vehicles, subway stations, hotels and countless objects that are intelligent. We also see augmented reality smart glasses and instant translation applications, things that already exist today, although developed by Google.
This view is complemented by Samsung also plans for a hypothetical 2050, based on technology that the company is already working.
"Think of the cars. Have not changed much in 20 years, so the phones could be seen as they are today, "said analyst firm CCS Insight, Been Wood, for the BBC .
Trends in future cellular short term
While it is difficult to ascertain how the cell phones will be in the future, we can give you an idea of how it will be with some projects already working companies and we will see in the very near future.
The Ara Project by Google
Project Ara is now in its second prototype functional cell, the Spiral 2 constructed of separate blocks of cameras, displays, speakers and microprocessors manufactured by different companies. It will be released in Puerto Rico in late 2015, as the site where it will the pilot before leaving the market officially.
Samsung Flexible Display
Samsung also introduced the commercial video of a tablet capable of bending in half to become phone, and these developments could begin to reach the market late 2016. It is in English, but it is interesting to see how they could be these devices.
Probably by the end of 2016 we are able to talk on the phone without a mobile operator. Or are you looking to get the LTE Direct technology, which is being developed by Qualcomm in collaboration with Facebook and Yahoo and that will allow people to communicate with each other without cell always networks as they are less than 500 meters away.
This is similar to Bluetooth or NFC technology, but more affordable range, which will also serve to receive instant information of the places we go, such as restaurants or department stores. Already messaging applications that work through Bluetooth, but being able to make phone calls or receive information in real time through LTE Direct could be a reality in phones to be launched by the end of 2016.
Mobile on your wrist
Samsung Mobile and Galaxy Gear S also allow calls from the watch, but is still dependent on your phone. The Apple Watch will also have this feature, but need to be synchronized with the iPhone owner. However, the biggest breakthrough so far promises to give the Cicret Bracelet , a plastic bracelet that will be able to project your forearm on the full screen of a cell. Your skin is the interface, and certainly will be touchable.
At this point of the article, we can conclude that cell of the future are likely to be just one part of an ecosystem of smart devices that will be available in the world.
And How you would like the future phones to be like? How far do you think you get your technology? Leave your comments.
