If there’s any aspect of technology that has developed rapidly, it is phone technology. We’ve witnessed car phones, mobile phones, and now smartphones.

1. Mobile Augmented Reality
How about having a smartphone that can cater to all your communication and entertainment needs? The Mobile Augmented Reality feature connects your phone to the internet, as well as to GPS and accelerometers. For instance, you are traveling to a new city, you can just point your phone towards the direction of a building and know its history in minutes. You can also get hotel or restaurant reviews in split seconds. Isn’t that amazing?
2. Mobile Payment
This particular phone feature will be great for small businesses that don’t accept credit cards. It would be much easier to transfer money from any bank account. With the availability of this feature, people can pay for goods and services by scanning their cell phones.
3. Artificial Intelligence:
Artificial Intelligence is still in its early stages and we are yet to see the best of it. However, it is already available on phones. It can be seen in the likes of Google Assistant, Siri, Alexa, Cortana, etc. Face and voice recognition are used on mobiles which enhances the customer experience. We are yet to see the best part of AI, so expect a lot more from phone technology.
4. Smartphones syncing with homes:
Mobile apps are being developed to increase comfort and relaxation. You can be able to control appliances in your home whether you are there or not. Some apps let you know who is at the door without going to the door. You can control your security cameras all at your comfort. You can do all these with your smartphone and this is being developed.
5. Transportation Apps:
You can order a ride from the comfort of your home or wherever you are, hence apps like Uber and Lyft. However, there’s a new cellular phone technology that lets you locate a bike or scooter with your mobile device. You can unlock it with your phone and get charged for the amount of time you use it.
6. Biometrics Advancements:
This is used to enhance security for your mobile devices. It includes fingerprint recognition, voice recognition, face recognition, and even signature recognition. Your smartphone may have some of these features already but a lot of these are still in production. For instance, your iPhone may have fingerprint recognition installed but doesn’t have facial recognition. However, the most recent iPhone has the feature.
Technology is constantly involving and therefore, improvements will be made to older mobile technologies. New trends will be out and it will keep going.
