James P DeVellis on the Top 3 Promising Smartphone Technologies to Watch Out For
James P DeVellis is a gadget head who spends his free time reviewing smartphones, tablets, and other gadgets and devices. Read his blog below about promising smartphone technologies.
Ten years ago today the world witnessed the birth of what would soon become one of the best-selling devices of our times – the iPhone. Since then, Apple has ushered in several game-changing technologies, with competitors launching their own counterparts in hopes of grabbing market share. James P DeVellis is excited to see what the future of smartphones would be like, given its rapid pace of evolution in the last decade. Here are three of the most promising technologies he is keeping an eye on:
1. Flexible, foldable displays – Ten years ago, the iPhone’s touch screen amazed everyone. Its vividness and vibrancy captured everyone’s imagination as well. Back then, the idea of an entire display without a keyboard or stylus was unheard of. Colored screens were also reserved for those who could afford it. Now, expecting a great display to come with your smartphone has become the standard, a baseline requirement even. James P DeVellis can’t wait to get his hands on flexible and foldable displays like the ones teased by Apple’s rival, Samsung. The Korean conglomerate was reportedly issued a patent for a flexible display last 2015. It’s been two years since – an eternity by industry standards – but that’s probably what makes the wait all the more worth it.
2. Hover touch – You thought voice control was cool but wait until you see how powerful and fun hover touch is when the technology is fully fleshed out. James P DeVellis shares that Microsoft could have revived its dying smartphone business last year with hover touch. Imagine, fingerprint- and smudge-free screens! Similar technologies have been developed by its rivals like Apple’s own 3D Touch. Nonetheless, no matter who reaches the finish line first in making hover touch commercially viable is sure to be a winner. This is because it opens a pathway for the technology’s application across other devices such as game consoles. That would surely revolutionize the way gamers play their favorite titles.
3. Under-display fingerprint scanners
– When fingerprint scanning was first launched a few years ago, smartphone users everywhere applauded the extra layer of protection the feature provided to their devices. Now fingerprint scanners just got better – they may soon be able to work underwater or authenticate soiled or wet fingers. James P DeVellis would have loved to see Vivo’s prototype of the under-display fingerprint scanners at the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai last month. He thinks Apple can still surprise smartphone users by launching its own under-display fingerprint scanners ahead of Vivo.
There you have it, three of the most promising technologies smartphones may soon have. James P DeVellis advises readers to consider holding off on buying the newest flagship phones as of late as they don’t offer any significant improvement from their predecessors.
