Mobile technology is advancing in big steps, and each new year is represented by a number of wave-generating technologies, some of which are very common and already paid for and expanded to less expensive products.
The technology cycle is often similar to that, and one day something special for more sophisticated products and over time we see that they are expanding into less expensive products. In 2019 we have seen a series of technologies installed on other mobiles, but by 2020 they will be much bigger. And maybe by 2021 they will almost always have cell phones.
We have seen all this technology in 2019, but it will be more common by 2020.
5G across the top range
2019 will go down in history as the year when 5G ceases to be the future so you can be a part of this. The implementation was somehow bittersweet, however, though not possible at high speeds.
Network deduction in its early stages is often complicated. Users do not care about 5G mobiles because there are no 5G networks and the networks do not grow according to the number of users because 5G mobile phones are not sold.
At the launch of the Snapdragon 865 Qualcomm was very clear, and that is that all the top 2020 phones will be 5G, because the module will be sold closer to the chip. Mid-range processors such as the Snapdragon 765 and MediaTek Dimensity 1000L will also be contenders for this 5G leap. Oppo has already confirmed its first affordable 5G phones, as has Redmi.
All of the late phones introduced in 2020 will be 5G
Qualcomm has just introduced its Snapdragon 865 processor, which will be sold in an invisible package with a 5G modem, confirming what the end will look like.
RAM memories LPDDR5 and UFS 3.0
Although for many applications it is often linked only to the processor, memories and is an important factor in the smartphone experience. RAM memory contributes to multitasking, keeping the processes running, front and back. In this case, LPDDR5 technology will be RAM memory technology compatible with most 5G mobiles.
On the other hand, storage technology is also important for the user experience, enabling mobile phones to read and write data faster. This is useful when performing high-resolution recording, as well as launching complex applications and games.
The new storage technologies not only provide greater power and speed, but they also have them low consumption (which translates to a better battery) and is bigger to cope with deterioration, so that your mobile future stays better for longer.
Your phone will go faster than ever with Samsung's new memory
Samsung is in the process of producing their LPDDR5 memory. Not only that, it also reached a new milestone: UFS 3.0 storage.
Multiple megapixels (and the ability to take advantage of them)
Megapixels have become a noticeable standard where the average user estimates how good a camera can be. Before we continue talking about it, it's important to clarify that this is not true. Megapixels is just a measure of how much information a sensor can get.
However, if by 2019 48 Mpx cameras have become the most popular, the 64 and 108 Mpx cameras we have already seen on other phones will continue to grow. And we can see the cameras up to 200 Mpx.
Does this mean cell phones will make better pictures? Yes, but the reason is not in megapixels, but in what processing algorithms can do with all that information.
As we can see, mobiles such as the Mi Note 10 don't seem to be able to take advantage of the camera's high-resolution features, while the Snapdragon 730G requires more time for image correction. Improvements in power will enable new processing algorithms to take full advantage of all those innovations.
Snapdragon 865: maximum power and support for 200 Mpx cameras
Qualcomm has already provided all the details and features of its best processor, Snapdragon 865, capable of moving cameras up to 200 Mpx.
This is the original 108 Mpx sensor, the Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX
Samsung announces the first 108 Mpx sensor on the market, the ISOCELL Bright HMX, which is rumored to be coming from the Galaxy S11 in February 2020.
Over 5000 mAh batteries and charges in "half an hour"
In recent years we have seen how batteries grow, and while recently that 4000 mAh batteries have been the way forward, there are already mobile carriers that have overcome that obstacle, the number is likely to increase at the terminals reaching these capabilities.
More important than the capacity is the fast-loading technology itself that will start to cross new boundaries. Already in 2018 Oppo let's break down the fast charging of Oppo Find X, which has been able to charge a cellphone in half an hour, a technology we've seen this year in realme X2 Pro. Huawei includes on its mobile a large fast charging, and Samsung has good sales almost the opposite.
Charge your phone from 0 to 100 in half an hour (or nearly 70% over a quarter of an hour) It's really frustrating when you use it every day. And it will be a technology that we will see more of in 2020.
