Changes in Smartphones Desired for the Near Future

Smartphones have revolutionized the mobile idea probably more than they did mobile phones. The processing power of computers of a few years ago it was cramped in a small housing that we have all the time in the pocket.

Today I will present some improvements that can create Smartphones even more powerful than some computers / laptops for lower generation.

Battery based on sugar

These battery have capacity 10 times greater than a Li-Ion battery and can be recharged in just seconds. “Sugar battery” are non-toxic, and using a sugar-based solution that reacts with oxygen in air to generate electricity and water as a byproduct. The invention of a group of students of Virginia Tech University in the United States is a fuel cell energy density of 596 Ah / kg, approximately 10 times greater than can be obtained Li-Ion batteries currently. Moreover, instead of staying connected with hours from an external source of electricity, fuel cells are refueled in seconds using a liquid solution containing 15% maltodextrin.

 Screen cheaper

Researchers in the UK have invented a new type of touchscreen which consumes very little power to operate, providing a cheap alternative for screens of smartphones and tablets today, keeping the same colors and visibility in direct sunlight.

With very little electricity needed to illuminate a display made of this special configuration “sandwich GST,” the team says could dramatically reduce the total energy consumed by a smartphone.

Resistant glass almost as steel

A team of researchers in Japan has created a new type of glass that is almost as strong as steel. This is possible using gas to push in the air the glass components which are 50% and 50% aluminum oxide silicon oxide.

Android 6 (marshmallow)

Let your device Doze:

With Android Marshmallow phone save energy. When not in use, the device will function Doze in standby mode. So you can be sure that in the night the phone discharge slower. Apps that are not important from the phone are not directly open, have limited impact on the battery, so a charge will last longer. But alarms, SMS and calls are not shooting down.

Change the permissions system:

Now, application will have a range of permissions that can be stopped. This will be done in settings, Task Manager, and then each application. Of course, you should be aware that some applications require specific permissions to work properly. If you want to have some of the best experience when using WhatsApp would be wise to share your contact list as well as pictures and microphone.

 Now on Tap:

For now, whether you receive a SMS, email, or surf the Web page, you can quickly search for relevant information about what you read with Now on Tap. All you have to do is long press the home button and you will get a card with the information you need. For example, you receive an SMS containing “Pizza Hut”. A long press on the home, there will be a card with options on Google Search, Maps, phone number, or other relevant information.

The phone in pieces or Ara Project

Many of those who want to change their phone took this decision because a single component: either want a better camera or a more powerful processor, ore even more RAM. So we get to give a lot of money on a new gadget, in place of buying, for example, the camera. The Motorola wants to change that and launched Project Ara, an idea that promises to build our pieces a smartphone

Upgrade of a smartphone made “in pieces” looks very much like the upgrade to an ordinary computer, enabling change some components such as the camera instead of the entire phone.

 

Conclusion

I think if the mobile developers will considered all of these innovations will create some more performance based mobile software and more resistant hardware based.

The people will not change their phone so often and mobile developers will be able to focus on certain components instead of creating from the beginning phones. This will make changes much cheaper for both for both sides (buyers and developers).
