You shall be scared by the pall of gloom that merely engulfs the thought of losing your precious gadgets. No wonder mobiles continue to retain their sheen right from the day of their productive use.

Masterminds behind the worthy smartphones are known for their innovation. Let me be clear by quoting an example. LEDs hogged the limelight in the latter half of twentieth century. However, they were for a brief stint. LEDs have the capacity to outclass other brand and variants of light sources. LEDs are known for their better watt-to-lumens efficiency. However, there is something more than it meets eye- As per a survey by an esteemed organization, in 1980s, not more than 35% India was in favor of LEDs. However, LEDs are trending now. Needless to say, the manifestation of mobile phones is based on several similar facts.

Delving deep into the nitty-gritty and finer nuances of the trends in mobile phone industry, it becomes imperative to quote a few:

  1. Wearables:

Smartwatches are trending now. To be precise, Apple and Sony have cemented their places in the domain of Smartwatches. To all intents and purposes, smartwatches have fitness tracking and health-oriented capabilities. So, how about a wearable mobile phone? Does the concept of a ‘wearable mobile phone’ sound out of the box? Not necessarily, it’s just a simple extension of the wearable smart watch. While Google came up with Google Glass, other competitors are in for a tight tussle.

It has become an absolute bliss to contemplate about the concept of ‘Imaging.’ Many mobile phones have come up with the so called front cameras and back cameras only to boast of the ‘megapixels’ and ‘progressive scans.’ However, not many customers are satisfied with the cameras quality. A dash of excellence is missing. The accompanying hype is doing no good as customers are fed up the mundane imaging and processing. So, many mobile manufactures are counting on the idea of incorporating powerful design software such as Photoshop, aftereffects etc.
