"The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time" -- Abraham Lincoln
The future isn't far away. In fact, it's just around the corner. In terms of technology and technological advancements, future is always one step closer. And we are in an age where time flies faster with a host of new devices coming every day almost.
Taking the topic of smartphone in this respect, the category has been growing ever since new handset makers started heading into the market. The business has been growing and thriving ever since, with 2014 also proving to be an integral year for the same.
But it isn't just the outside shelling of phones that have taken advantage of the new advances. In fact, bigger screens, more powerful processors, longer battery life, faster data connections and more have also accounted for this advancement.
But with 2014 coming to end shortly, more new things are expected in the upcoming year. Yes, 2015 is indeed expected to be major year in terms of more new cool features being introduced on smartphones.
So what kind of features are we expecting to see in the year that's just ahead of us? Let's take a look at the top 5 advancements and features expected from the smartphone business.
Sunlight can be quite the downer as soon as you take your smartphone out of your pocket. But there's something called transflexive LCD displays that are said to offer clear and beautiful images even in bright light outdoors. And although we aren't sure if we do get to see these displays, but expect advances in this field.
We are already in an age where smartphones are arriving with octa core and hexa core processors. And if the technology is taken into consideration, more core power shouldn't be far off. In fact, we are even looking toward the probability of devices with 32 cores.
Waterproofing has become an integral part in the smartphone business with all the new devices coming up with guard from water and rain. We already have the IP67 technology to guard devices, and that may very well be upped with new innovations heading in.
We have no idea how many times we have written or spoken about handsets arriving with bendable screens. And with so much said and written about it, 2015 is basically high time when the idea for the tech is finally put into motion. So expect more from current bendable-screen technologies such as Samsung's YOUM flexible OLED and Corning's Willow Glass.
We already have stuff such as fingerprint technology for unlocking smartphones. In fact, even Apple is already expected to unleash fingerprint ID in the iPhone 5S some time soon. But going ahead, expect even your eye retina to act as a lock system. Also, expect more in the voice locking area.
