The Top 3 Most Anticipated Smartphone Innovations Of 2019

2019 is expected to be a big year for smartphone technology. From 5G LTE connectivity to foldable designs, there’s a lot in store.

The New Year brings new possibilities, new adventures, and yes, new smartphone innovations. Top brands, like Apple and Samsung, are working to develop the most advanced smartphone technologies to date, which they hope to make available to users in 2019.

Couple taking picture of fireworks

With the recent releases of state-of-the-art smartphones, such as the iPhone XR and the Samsung Galaxy Note9, you might think, “How is it possible for smartphone tech to become even more sophisticated?” Several developments are in store for new phones in 2019 – check out the top three innovations we’re most excited about at Total Wireless.

The foldable smartphone

With this smartphone technology, you’ll get enhanced access to apps, photos, and more at your fingertips.

Samsung is one of a few brands leading the charge for the revolutionary foldable smartphone. This phone, known as the Samsung Galaxy F, isn’t simply a tablet, and it doesn’t consist of two displays on a hinge, either – the full screen of the smartphone is designed to bend. When folded, it forms a smaller smartphone that can easily fit into your pocket.

Need more screen space to browse social media or watch a movie right on your phone? Unfold the device to access a larger touchscreen display. With this smartphone technology, you’ll get enhanced access to apps, photos, and more at your fingertips.

5G power unleashed

Succeeding 4G LTE, 5G networks are designed to work faster and more efficiently than ever before. A smartphone equipped with the fifth generation of wireless technology, like the projected Samsung Galaxy S10, is expected to be faster, more responsive, and to possess a greater capacity for connecting more devices at once.

Have you ever lost connection to your network in a crowded area or struggled to download or upload information to and from your phone? Innovative 5G LTE networks are expected to reduce and eliminate these inconveniences, so that users can stay more connected to their mobile network. And once one network signs on for 5G, all users with the carrier can reap the benefits.

Transforming notch

Over the years, you might have noticed that the bezel on many smartphones, or the framing around the phone that isn’t the screen, has been changing. Apple iPhones especially have experienced a transformation from bezel to bezel-less devices. In order to increase screen space without dramatically altering the look or size of the phone, many brands have switched out the bezel for the notch.

Smartphones, like the iPhone X and the Samsung Galaxy S8, revealed the big switch back in 2017. This change equated to more screen space with the exception of a small black strip, or notch, at the top of the phone. The trend doesn’t appear to be stopping anytime soon, so sleeker, bezel-less smartphones can be expected to be produced across even more brands in 2019.

A new you

Whether in the near or distant future, these innovations will change the smartphone game forever. All the while, you can expect Total Wireless to carry the latest Android and iOS devices with the forward-thinking features you love.
