The mobile industry is growing at a rapid speed and the innovations in this field are opening up new avenues – with smartphones getting more futuristic, and top-notch user experience becoming commonplace. The latest generation of smartphones are powered by high-end processors, powerful cameras and FullHD+ display with a high refresh rate.
So, in this article we’ll take a look at some of the latest mobile phone technologies that hit the mobile phone industry in 2019.
You might still be struggling to get proper 4G speed in your city, but 5G with your , the latest mobile technology, is here to revolutionize the wireless technology more than ever. The year 2019 has witnessed the arrival of several 5G compatible smartphones, even as the latest mobile communication system is still in the early stages of development. Expected to be up to 100 times more than the speed of 4G, it is set to provide a far higher level of performance than the previous iterations. While Samsung has launched three 5G compatible handsets each in the form of Galaxy S10 5G, Note 10 5G and Fold 5G, Huawei has announced four such devices — Mate X, Mate 20X 5G, Mate 30 5G and Mate 30 Pro 5G. Motorola, OnePlus and LG have also introduced smartphones with 5G support. In addition to these phones, there are stacks of 5G handsets coming in 2020.
Another path-breaking and new mobile technology that hit the smartphone industry in 2019 is foldable phones, billed as a future of smartphones. The first two mainstream folding phones announced 2019 were the Huawei Mate X and Samsung Galaxy Fold. The Korean smartphone maker was initially praised for this engineering leap but all hell broke loose soon after the Galaxy Fold review units were shared with the media. The Galaxy fold encountered embarrassing screen failures that delayed its launch to November. Huawei Mate X, however, did not face such issues but its global launch date has so far missed several deadlines. The Lenovo-owned Motorola also morphed its iconic Moto Razr flip phone into a foldable phone. The device was unveiled in November in Los Angeles but is yet to hit the market.
In 2019, smartphone markers thrived more on improving camera capabilities of their devices than anything else. This has led to the incorporation of multiple lenses at the rear, with quad-camera setups becoming a norm. Samsung, Vivo, Oppo, Realme and other players launched several smartphones with quad-cameras, while Apple, OnePlus offered triple-cameras in their handsets. Xiaomi has unveiled a Penta-camera setup in its upcoming flagship device Note 10. Google came up with dual rear cameras in its Pixel 4. Furthermore, the year 2019 also witnessed the launch of several smartphones with 64MP cameras. Realme, sub-brand of Oppo, was the first to bring a 64MP lens in its mid-range device Realme XT, launched in September. Xiaomi and Samsung also joined the race with Redmi Note 8 Pro and Galaxy A70s, both available at the Bajaj Finserv EMI store at No Cost EMI.
Evolution of display:
We have seen smartphone displays getting bigger and brighter in the past few years, but 2019 made the viewing experience on mobile screens even better. It was the year of punch hole displays and higher screen refresh rate, innovations that took mobile displays to another level. The year began with Samsung introducing infinity O display in its Galaxy S10 series in February, and ended with Vivo bringing the world’s tiniest hole-punch cavity, which is only 5mm in diameter, in V17. Almost every smartphone maker came up with punch hole displays, offering more screen real-estate and giving the notch-haters some crazy good time. Also, smartphones with higher screen refresh rate gained more popularity in 2019. OnePlus offered 90Hz panels in three smartphones: OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro. Asus went a step ahead with 120Hz display refresh rate in its ROG Phone 2. Chinese smartphone maker Realme also stepped into the race of higher refresh rate, launching its X2 Pro with a 90Hz display at an affordable price. If you’re looking to make the most of a higher refresh rate, you can purchase the Realme X2 Pro from the Bajaj Finserv EMI store at zero down payment and also get three months of Netflix worth Rs. 1497 free with the product.
With companies searching for different solutions for cutting back on bezels, another trend that made its way was of pop-up front camera, the latest mobile technology. The idea behind this sliding mechanism is to give users a full-screen experience. The innovation was well received by users as smartphones with pop-up cameras garnered a lot of attention. These phones look aesthetically good and offered a truly bezel-less experience to those having a disdain for display notches and punch-hole screens.
2019 has been a great year for smartphones, but 2020 will be even better with new and more futuristic mobile phones in line to hit the market.
