Mobile phones have truly come a long way from back-in-the-day, and as technology has evolved we’ve seen the advancement of smartphones: they offer smarter capabilities than traditional cell phones, such as web browsing, games, video and photo taking functions, and much more. In just two swift decades they’ve become an integral part of our everyday lives and they are only going to get better.
Recently though, smartphone innovation seems to have stalled with new releases looking very much alike or resembling their predecessor. But obviously this is temporary. So what should we expect from the future of smartphones?
Currently, most people don’t actually realize how smart their smartphones really are – packed with sensors collecting data regarding who we are, where we are located and what’s going on around us. Over the next five to ten years, predictions are that smartphones will offer even more advancements in improved productivity of businesses and efficiency of the end user:
Features that employ sensor information – Smartphones in the future will likely have mobile apps that employ sensor information to a greater extent than they currently do, anticipating your needs based on current patterns and routines.
A form that offers more flexibility and freedom – The form of future smartphones will include integrated circuits, front-facing speakers, replacement parts for screens, and upgraded speakers and cameras. Plus, they’re likely to include screens that bend and curve.
Functions that suit a wider range of needs – In the future, we predict smartphones to have functions that suit a wider rand of needs, from fingerprint access for security to patient control (allowing patients to send photos to doctors) to virtual reality for better gaming.
Performance that’s as powerful as a desktop – Smartphone performance has been doubling every year, and in 2015 is officially as powerful as a PC in 2005. We predict future smartphones will be as powerful as desktops, with 256 core processors, increased CPU’s, and more.

One major feature of future smartphones they left-out is the integration of artificial intelligence into all mobile devices. I also disagree with smartphone power catching that of a PC, as if the king of computing is going to stop its evolution.
But future smartphones are going to be almost un-recognizable from the devices we have today …and just as we have the PC (Personal Computer) today, the smartphone will become the PA (Personal Attendant) of tomorrow. Therefore, everyone needs to get at least a little tech-savvy.
