From incorporating under-screen fingerprint sensors to equip even four-camera devices; Smart phone makers are working today to provide users with the most advanced and intelligent options that enable them to conquer and lead the market.
On Nov. 7, at SDC 2018 for developers, the South Korean company Samsung made a first step towards the arrival of a new generation of devices, revealing some details about the Infinity Flex Display, technology that sets the foundation for creating what will be flexible screens.
Flip the screens
Imagine a device with a tablet-size screen that you can fold anytime and whenever you want, then insert it into your pocket and load it without any inconvenience. This is the concept behind the Infinity Flex Display, the Samsung technology that will allow you to create a flexible screen.
The device that will incorporate it, which is expected to be marketed since 2019, will have a 7.3 cm measure to be fully open and will offer tablet features with the ability to interact with up to three applications in same time. but once doubled, it will become a more portable and easy to charge phone whose interface will be adjusted to continue navigating.
Samsung has used a new advanced polymer that acts as a screen protector so it can flex without problems.
Debate of the three – or up to four rooms
One of the aspects that most users pay attention to when buying a cell phone is the camera. Manufacturers decided to set aside double rooms and increase the number on the back.
Huawei was the first to announce a three-cell phone in p20 Pro, which he also embedded in Mate 20, launched last October in London. Samsung, in turn, decided to go further and add four goals to the Galaxy A9.
However, many are wondering if it helps them to have so many cameras on a single device. Each goal has a specific function that is met without the user making greater efforts, so the proposal makes sense in terms of practicality and good results. The telephoto lens, for example, makes it possible to get an object approach without losing quality, and the wide angle is ideal for photographing landscapes.
Large screens and AI
At the launch of the London event, Huawei also unveiled a device called 20X, which compared to the Nintendo Switch portable console.
With a 7.2-inch Oled screen, the device is ideal for video game fans looking for elegance and modernity without losing the technical features needed to sustain their work.
The immense screens are undoubtedly a trend that will continue to grow, as well as novelties from Artificial Intelligence (IA), which will continue to set the standard: that tasks are faster and more personalized, intelligent image analysis is done to make an automatic configuration of settings when a picture is taken and translations can be made in real time are some of the possibilities offered today and will certainly be improved in the coming years
A holographic panel?
There is already a screen proposal where you can watch 3D content without wearing glasses. It's the proposal Red Hydrogen One, the world's first phone with a holographic panel created by Red (known for making cameras).
The company uses a technology called LitByLeia that allows optimized content to be viewed in "four views" (4 views in English). Users have the opportunity to experience rocket effects, for example, in a 3D experience or to see textures such as leather, wood and metal surfaces in a more real and closer, according to the company.
In the phone, which has a 5.7 inch panel, you can see both images in holographic and 2D standard views with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440. The company says both ways can be alternated easily and without losing light.
Holographic technology will probably be one of the developments that will make more progress.
A12 Bionic is the brain of the latest generation of the iPhone. Apple has defined it as the heart of a new level of intelligence when using neural networks that allow, by learning in the car, recognizing models, making predictions, and learning from user experiences.
It has a new neural motor that has an 8-core architecture, meaning it is capable of processing five billion operations per second. A12 Bionic incorporates a six-core processor and a quad-core GPU, which translates into greater efficiency (up to 50% more in power consumption), power and speed.
Changes will improve graphics performance in games, video editions, and applications with high graphics demand. A12 Bionic is the XS, XS Max and XR processor, which are also made of 100% recycled aluminum.
