Latest Features in Smartphone Devices

  The world of Smartphone is dynamic. Smartphone started making wave towards the latter part of the past century, and the industry has grown by leaps and bounds since then. These days, a Smartphone can function as a computer. There is rarely any program you can run on a desktop or laptop computer that you cannot also run on a Smartphone. In fact, Smartphone tends to run more applications than a computer these days.

If you are a die-hard lover of PC games, you can equally have fun on your Smartphone since most of the PC games can now be played on a mobile device. Their availability on a mobile device even makes things better since you can take your game along with you everywhere you go.

The Smartphone industry is booming, and the relevance is getting stronger by the day. New features are being added on a regular basis, and this write-up will focus on those latest features already in use or expected to be added to latest Smartphone devices.

Lossless camera zooming

This feature can be found on iPhone 7 it is built using a computation photography technology and brings about a better snap via clever robot smarts. It is expected to feature in other devices soon for improved mobile photos experience. In fact, some other mobile devices are already featuring it aside from iPhone 7, and it is displaying top quality image. The feature includes 2x zoom secondary prime lens, and it provides lossless zoom, which it does without increasing the bulk of the device.

 In the Apple device, the classic camera hardware was merged with smart software for an improved image result and still makes it a light and slim looking device. It provides an opportunity to use camera zoom without any worry.

Dash charging 30 minutes top-ups

This feature is currently being used in the OnePlus 5. It provides fast charging so that the device can return to life after the battery has depleted.  The fast charge feature ensures that the battery gets more juice to function after just a few minutes of charging. This technology also exists in some other latest devices, but the approach differs from one Smartphone to another. In some, the batteries are supplied with high current or voltage than that of the standard 5V and ½ amps. In some other cases, the current is reduced, and the voltage is increased.  In the case of the Dash charging technology, the voltage is maintained at 5V while the current is doubled to 4 amps.

This unique technology ensures that the temperature remains low so that the device does not feel hot to the touch. However, the end user is expected only to use the specific cable supplied for the purpose.  One of the other phones that rival the OnePlus 5 in this technology is Galaxy S8; it features Qualcomm QuickCharge and has a 3-based plug. OnePlus 5 and the other devices can charge the battery to 50% after just 30 minutes of charging.

Gigabyte LTE

The Gigabyte LTE feature in Samsung Galaxy S8 has the same strength as 5G! It is among the latest innovations in the mobile technology world and ensures the end user can access very fast mobile internet speed.  You can get up to 125MB/s or 1000Mbps download speed with the Gigabyte LTE.

The processor in devices featuring this technology is made by Qualcomm, and their X16 modem makes it possible.  Aside from the Samsung Galaxy S8, other mobile devices currently featuring this technology are Sony Experia XZ Premium and HTC U11.

Findings show that the speed of download of these mobile devices is higher than the writing pace of much mobile internal storages; you will agree that this is amazing.  5G may still be some months or years away from seeing the light of day, but the Gigabyte LTE takes the mobile world closer to 5G than any other thing. Not many mobile devices have provided 4G services close to this feature, but there are indications that many more devices will assume that status before long.

Aside from mobile device manufacturers, some internet service carriers are also working towards providing gigabyte speed to their customers, some of the concerned carriers are T-Mobile and AT&T. EE in the UK is also on the verge of achieving that feat.  In fact, they currently generate up to 429Mbps due to current infrastructure upgrade in the establishment located in Cardiff.

Laptop-grade storage

Gone are the days when memory space in a Smartphone would limit you; these days, the storage space in some mobile devices can compete with what obtains in a laptop. Many phones now store as much data as many laptops. For example, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus can store up to 256GB of data, which is what obtains in many high-end laptop computers.  As a result, you can download all the YouTube or Netflix videos you ever desire without a flinch.

The large storage space gives complete peace of mind when downloading items from the internet, like apps, videos, images or documents. You can also save as many photos as you like without causing your device to run slowly.  The huge memory space ensures that your device can run smoothly even after saving a lot of data on it.

If you need to format your laptop and you need a place to backup your documents, files, videos, programs and so on, you can transfer them to your mobile device pending the time the formatting would complete.

 A phone uses NAND chips for its storage whereas a laptop will use SSD. The chips in the mobile devices are small enough to occupy the tiny space provided for them and were made by Samsung and SanDisk.  The reading space is 850MB/s, which indicates how far miniaturization has gone.


As you can see from above, some devices are already featuring the technologies already described. Be that as it may, they are among the latest technologies in the mobile industry.  It is expected that many other phone makers will include the features described above in their products. The coming year is expected to open the door to even more advanced technologies than ever before.
