We present five major trends that will have a major impact on the smartphone market in 2019. Firstly, they will become somewhat more aesthetic and user-friendly for users, and this year they will be prepared for a very important technological leap, which will be complete next year.
It is quite possible that punched screens will become a new standard
There are currently at least three smart phonesWhat the camera is at the front instead of the so-called notch we saw in the vast majority of new models last year, was taken to a hole that was drilled directly into the screen.
One of them is Samsung Galaxy A8s, which is only available in China since December 21, the second Huawei Nova 4, which can now be purchased by Lekitaj buyers and the third Reward view 20, which will also enter the European market in the second half of January.
The screen hole is probably a better solution than the notch, because it is less likely to disrupt the aesthetic unit of a smartphone, and the user often covers it with your thumb when using the phone in landscape mode, especially when playing of video games.
Moving to the smartphone market: what will be from now on?
The classic fingerprint reader will slowly retreat to the invisible under the screen
smartphone Huawei Mate 20 Pro was on October 16 last year to see with a fingerprint reader under the screen based on the new ultrasonic sensor from Qualcomm, which can detect fingerprints through a 0.8 mm thick glass.
As we wrote down in our Mate 20 Pro test, the fingerprint reader under the screen is slightly slower than the classic, but it is a great aesthetic advantage, since the manufacturer does not have to look for the device on the case of the device, in which the reader would place it so that the appearance of the phone would be minimal.
What else do you want on this smartphone?
This Qualcomm sensor is received this year by other smartphone manufacturers, but will most likely appear in the model Galaxy S10, which Samsung will probably present on February 20.
According to some estimates Only Samsung will sell 100 million smartphones with a fingerprint reader under the screen this year. Namely, it would not only be the room of Samsungov, but also the devices of the Galaxy A family, which belong to the middle price range.
The most expensive Samsun & # 39; s tenth could reach the price of about 1,500 euros
The fingerprint reader will be under the screen most likely to have also the new spring Huawei in the forefront of the P30 Pro.
The specific acceleration of the speed of charging phones is expected
partnership Qualcomm, whose Snapdragon processors are used by most of the most famous smart phone manufacturers, with the exception of Apple and Huawei, and to a certain extent Samsung's own developers, will be equipped with a new generation of their midrange and high-end chips with improved fast battery charging technology, rising to what 32 watts.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro already charges 40 watts, OnePlus 6T with 30, but in these cases it is proprietary technologies that are not available to other manufacturers, and the novelty of Qualcomm brings such a fast charge to anyone who will record their chips in their devices. Because there are middle-class processors, that's it
Although some manufacturers will almost certainly insist on their filling solutions, the progress that goes with the new generation of Snapdragon chips is still very important. It clearly shows guidelines in the field of telephone batteries: charging takes less time.
Ten very quick tricks for a smartphone that everyone needs to know
Phone cameras & # 39; s will be even more advanced, not just in the field of photography

This year there is a chance to increase the number of lenses that cameras will have (Nokia 9 it should have five, LG has registered patent for 16)as well as resolution resolution (Honor View 20 has a sensor with 48 megapixels).
A smartphone that was not enough for three cameras at the back
One of the biggest innovations of cameras with more than two lenses is not only high-quality photography, but also the three-dimensional perception of objects and the creation of their virtual versions that can then be manipulated on the screen.
With the right software it is also possible to create three-dimensional virtual environments, such as a home-made living room, which can then be virtualized using glasses with virtual reality. This is just one example, because the possibilities in this area are virtually unlimited.
This year the first smartphones are coming into use fifth generation mobile networks (5G). This includes all models with Qualcomm Chip Snapdragon 855, which will usually be reserved for the flagship of certain manufacturers, such as Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG, OnePlus.
With 5G networks we will do things that users can not yet think of
To release a smartphone in 2019 to support 5G networks, they confirmed also Huawei, Honor, Oppo, Xiaomi.
According to the expectations of the telecommunication industry, the 5G will only be fully operational next year, when Apple will release its first smartphone, which will work in the fifth generation network.
