What to Expect in Smartphone Technology in 2019?

It’s a close battle for Smartphone companies in 2019 as every developer out there is cramming new technology into handheld devices. Never mind the price tag, for now, we’re just looking at the possible hardware upgrades that smartphone companies will be implementing in 2019.

Possible Hardware Upgrades of Smartphones in 2019

Foldable Screen Smartphones

Cellphone companies have been teasing the public with foldable screens. No, these are not your flip phones. We’re talking about a large screen for maximum viewing that can then be folded back for the phone to fit in your pocket.

Phones with Foldable Screens

  • Samsung Galaxy X
  • Motorola Razr
  • LG Folding Smartphone
  • Apple Foldable iPhone
  • Huawei Folding Phone

The power players in the smartphone industry aren’t certainly pulling back punches with their flagship phones each sporting a similar tech with screens. Will it be a big hit to consumers in 2019? Only time will tell.

Four Camera Smartphones

It seems Samsung is pulling in the lead in terms of cameras as they already have the Samsung A9 with a whopping 4 cameras. It seemed only yesterday when phone companies were competing with dual cameras and triple cameras. Adding the front cam, the Samsung A9 comes with 5 cameras which makes people think it’s a beast of a phone in terms of cameras. However, experts are saying the 4th rear camera doesn’t add much to the quality of pictures as compared to the triple rear camera the LG V40.

Smartphone Speakers

Free yourself from earphones, Bluetooth headsets, and speakers with the best 2019 smartphones with the best speakers. Everything is speculation for now but judging from 2018 smartphones, we can expect the following companies to be producing phones with awesome speakers for audiophiles everywhere.

  • Samsung Galaxy S-series – AKG Speakers
  • Motorola Razer series – Loud front speakers with Dolby Atmos technology
  • HTC – BoomSound

We may have to watch out for more updates as companies are focusing more on other aspects than sound owing to the availability of headsets, Bluetooth speakers and more. There is some promise however on the changes in the placement of the speaker such as in-the-screen technology which may eliminate notches and improve the bevels on new phones.

5G Phones

Move over 4G, 2019 is going to be about 5G phones. Faster is better it seems and 5G is miles away from 4G, promising speeds up to 1 Gbps. Yes, that’s gigabits per second as compared to the average 70 Mbps for 4G phones. Smartphone companies are ramping up their 2019 flagship phones with 5G capability, here’s to hoping they can deliver.

  • Samsung Galaxy S10
  • Huawei P30 / Mate 30
  • Oppo 5G
  • Honor 5G
  • Xiaomi Mi Mix 3
  • One Plus 7
  • Sony Xperia XZ4
  • iPhone 2019

Do take note, however, 5G capable phones might not work as well if your carrier only has a 4G capability. Theoretically, 4G speeds improve in a 5G capable phone but it really depends on the mobile infrastructure of your provider.
