In the upcoming years Samsung will develop a fingerprint scanner coherent to the screen of its Galaxy Note 9. There’s also an assurance of the inexplicable Galaxy X, pretend to have a huge screen that’s foldable enough to permit the whole device to be bended, even though you have to admire if that will be a bridge too far for 2018.
Here are the rapid reviews of what are the technicalities you should anticipate to see in your next smart phone:
Foldable displays: Flip phones are old stuff, or so we expect, but it seems like the hinged parts model could make a grand comeback very soon. Samsung is introducing a most expensive range of flip phone running Android very recently. Samsung is also making efforts on foldable OLED panels at present. If these models get success in the market, the previously mentioned Galaxy X could even be a smartphone that discloses and replaces a tablet.
18:9 aspect ratio: this aspect is the biggest shift in smart phone designs where every company has tried to adopt in 2017 which allows phone to have bigger screens and smaller borders. LG is the first company to release with such feature with LG G6 commonly known by LG as Full Vision. This is only going to rise in 2018 as others try to keep up, and we can see 18:9 becoming popular all over the market next year.
Curved glass feature: Smartphone companies consistently observe the new ways to improve their designs and stand out. Samsung and LG have carried out trails with curved glass in production smartphones, and while LG’s G Flex series did not go well, Samsung excavated flat models of its porch models combining with the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8.
Processor- Snapdragon 845: In 2017, the Snapdragon 835 processor from Qualcomm, and with the new year, the company has just released its successor, the Snapdragon 845. Snapdragon 845 will access for Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 and 4+ technology for quick charging.

Now Sony is developing high end gaming features with more technicalities which will fascinate all the gamers. With these users can play countless online mobile games.
Digital payments made easier: Digital payments has become like a revolution in India this year. This is because Samsung has launched its contactless payment service, Samsung Pay. We might see some more contactless payment services like Android Pay and Apple Pay. Nowa2018 could also experience voice-based payments systems such as ICICI’s one-step Money2India application become popular, making payments simple and more accessible to Indians at any place.
AR and VR are still top most apps: Virtual Reality (VR) on mobile phones hasn’t wholly taken off because you still need to put in your phone into a headset. But still the visual experience is only satisfactory with expensive and top models. VR headsets like Google’s next-gen Daydream might find solution to this problem. Apple hasn’t bought into the entire VR scenario yet as its main development is Augmented Reality (AR). In the coming years we can see some interesting games and apps depending on apple’s ARKit. Google is going forward with its new framework called ARcore. Google lens will give info of surroundings which will aid in daily life by doing things such as identifying addresses and phone numbers in photos, and serving up contextual information about your location.
Artificial intelligence will be more of a game changer: Google put huge efforts on its marriage of hardware, software and AI with the Pixel 2 series, and Amazon is striving hard to get its Alexa assistant into every product you buy. Those companies that can pull off their own AI tricks will have an advantage in 2018, as more people start to anticipate smart, imaginative features. Phone cameras, object identification, intelligent planning and opportunistic suggestions are all going to improve, but they’re going to need to be useful and non-intrusive.
Rapid wireless standards: The full potential of Wi-Fi 802.11ac right now, but the new Wi-Fi 802.11ad and 802.11ax standards are coming forward and in usage by very few people. These features could aid people lead wireless lifestyles with fewer drawbacks. 5G might be just around the corner but we can still perform better when it comes to LTE, utilizing multiple antennas, better modems in our devices, and backend upgrades.
Revolutionary Android Oreo: there will be only few people at the end of the year but we can still predict the companies to have ready updates by mid-2018. The next version of Android will be codenamed as Android P which Google will show it off at its next I/O conference.
Batteries with better performance: the biggest wish of any android user is dramatic improvement in battery performance which will discard all battery chargers and power banks. We have to depend more on efficient hardware and software to yield better battery life as no company worked on its improvements as such.
Face recognition- A mandatory feature: Apple is the first company to launch the face recognition feature which made all other companies to imitate it. Android phones working on face recognition feature have used basic cameras instead of the elaborated 3D dot projector and infrared sensor that the iPhone X employs, and that could change next year.
5G will become the mainstream: 4G is the network mode of services in India as the world is gearing up for 5G services. The main motto is to bring down latency in data transfers comparing to 4G networks while improving battery performance. Trails begun in some parts of the world but it might take some time in India to adopt this technology.
