2018 was a year filled with incredible technological smartphone advancements. Artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and bezel-less displays are some of the trends we saw in 2018.
But what about 2019? What innovative smartphone trends did we witness in 2019? Here’s a list of the latest smartphone trends:
Sliding camera modules
Vivo impressed the world with the pop-up camera feature with its Vivo Nex model recently. The reason for this innovation is to achieve true bezel-less experience by removing the camera notch. The front camera will slide up or pop-up when users activate it and go right back in when they’re done with it.
We’ve been listening to the talk of foldable smartphones long before 2019. Users will be able to bend and fold these smartphones to be smaller and fit into their pockets. Many companies such as Samsung and Huawei have created the devices with screens you can bend. With these foldable smartphones, you can have more space to view your favourite videos or apps.
The notch evolution
On the path to true bezel-less phones, many smartphone companies chose to increase the screen size. However, most often than not, the notch remains at the front for the camera function. Smartphone designers are now working on notch designs that will offer more screen space. For example, Samsung has designed the Infinity-O, which is an O-shaped notch that is placed on the side instead of the top.
As the years go by, the number of cameras on our phones increases. 2019 is no different, as the number increases from two to three, but it’s also possible we might see as many as five or nine. With more cameras, users can expect to capture stunning photos and videos.
Just like how 2018 was a fantastic year for smartphone innovations and creations, 2019 is no different. The year is far from over, and we can look forward to new and exciting phone features to come.
