10 Features To Expect In Smartphones Of The Future

From the rate at which technology advances, it would be difficult to predict what lies ahead. However, there are certain features that are speculated to be minimal requirements for smartphones of the feature. These devices are speculated to be more powerful, smarter, and faster than the average computer. In this article i'll show you 10 features we are to expect in smartphones of the future.
1. Flexible Screens

In the future, smartphones would be flexible and bendable, providing bigger display for movie viewing or gaming while maintaining a pocketable size, all owing to new materials like elastor polymer, flexible circuit boards and battery reconfigurations.

Samsung showcased the world’s first foldable AMOLED display at a private event during CES 2014, ETNews reports. The 5.68-inch high resolution prototype is reportedly made of new plastic substrate, which allows displays to be extremely thin and flexible. In addition, Samsung has successfully implemented touchscreen functionality into its flexible display (ibtimes.com).2. Indoor Positioning System (IPS)
Smartphones of the future are expected to be equipped with an Indoor positioning system (IPS) which enables the smartphone user to wirelessly locate objects or people within a building. This could be particularly useful for tracking and safety purposes.
3. 3D Screens
Smartphones may have already reached the peak for their screen resolution with Apple’s ‘Retina Display‘, which actually provides a resolution that is sharper than what the human eye can perceive. Yet, even then, we still want more. Mobile companies are now moving from 2D future-features-smart-phones/ to 3D future-features-smart-phones/ for the smartphone screen. At present, we have a couple of 3D smartphones in the market, such as the LG Optimus 3D, the Motorola MT810 as well as the very first Samsung AMOLED 3D (hongkiat.com)
4. Augumented Reality
Augmented reality (AR) is cutting-edge technology that allows for a digitally enhanced view of the real world, connecting you with more meaningful content in your everyday life. With the camera and sensors in a smartphone or tablet, AR adds layers of digital information – videos, photos, sounds – directly on top of items in the world around us(layar.com). This feature would be integrated in future smartphones providing you with information about an item or location saving you the stress of having to call a friend or checking the internet. 
5. Ultra Fast Processors
In the future, smartphones are going to the faster and more powerful than a desk computer. Intel researchers are working on a 48-core processor for smartphones and tablets — making them many times more powerful than today’s desktop computers within the next five to ten years (Kurzweilai.net).
6. Computational Cameras
In five years, point-and-shoot digital cameras will be as antiquated as film cameras are now. That's because smartphone cameras will not be digital but computational, able to react almost as the human eye does, to almost instantaneously focus, track objects and adjust to variant lighting conditions. This ability will be made possible by technologies evolved from advances such as Nvidia's Chimera and DigitalOptics’ MEMS autofocus technologies(livescience.com).
7. Seamless Voice Control
Voice control has been receiving much attention since Siri made headlines. Siri might have signaled a breakthrough to the way voice control and recognition programming ought to be, however, smartphones of the future are expected to combine voice and gestures to take interactivity to a whole new level. 
8. Improved Transflexive LCD Screens
The need for a smartphone screen to stand up to sunlight is too acute to go unsolved, so we'll smartphones with transflexive LCD displays that reflect ambient light and rendering bright and colorful display even in sunlight. 
9. Advanced 4G LTE/5G
Around 2001, third generation (3G) devices appeared, first in Japan, and then in the US, offering the high-speed data transfer and Internet connection used in the earliest smartphones. The first 4G LTE and WiMAX networks appeared in 2011.
Given the natural decade-long development cycle, fifth generation (5G) networks are due around 2021. But South Korea, the world’s most enthusiastic adaptor of mobile technology, is pushing the envelope and plans to roll out a 5G network as early as 2017, with full availability by 2020 (tech.co)
5G wireless networks will support 1,000-fold gains in capacity, connections for at least 100 billion devices, and a 10 Gb/s individual user experience capable of extremely low latency and response times.
10. In-Built Projector
If flexible screens are not enough to compensate for the small screens on smartphones why not integrate a projector within? Samsung Galaxy Beam was released back in the second half of 2010. It features a built-in DLP (Digital Light Projection) WVGA projector that is able to project future-features-smart-phones/ at up to 50 inches in size at 15 lumens(hongkiat.com). With this feature you can do more with your smartphone on a projected bigger screen like make a presentation or watch movies.
