What will the mobile phones of the future bring us?

It's been more than 20 years since the first mobile phone went on the market, completely changing the possibilities of communication between people and facilitating interconnection at any time and in any place, but in that amount of time, the transformations that have undergone This technological device has been numerous and has evolved to be much more than just a device for calling or sending messages. Today, it is called smart phone.

And the changes do not stop. Such advances are predicted for the coming years, that some experts show an eventual disappearance of mobile phones as we know them today, this to give way to new devices that better adapt to everyday life and that fulfill the same functions as always with many others.

This is the opinion, for example, Shao Yang, representative of the Chinese company Huawei, who has declared to the media his position on the future of mobile phones. Maybe the communication will be somewhere in my pocket, maybe on some screen in my glasses, maybe the music on a device in my ear, there will be many possibilities.

Mobile History

The boom of mobile phones began with the launch of the Motorola DynaTAC 8000, in 1983. It was a heavy equipment almost a kilogram and large that did not last to discontinue and be replaced by new models, increasingly compact and comfortable for the carrier of the team.

The DynaTAC belonged, according to Wikipedia, to the first generation (1G) of mobiles, which was followed by the 2G generation, in the 1990s. At this stage, GSM, IS-136, iDEN and IS-95 communication systems and frequencies were used adopted in Europe were 900 and 1800 MHz. The GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) offers voice and data mailbox functions, but not at the speed that users began to demand. The Motorola StarTAC can be mentioned as belonging to this period.

The 3G generation will soon be born, which provides better services, including internet connection, video conferencing, television and file downloads. The appearance of new brands and models of mobile phones is accentuated during this time, which are seen from the first Nokia to the launch of smartphones, including the Blackberry.

Currently, the fourth generation or 4G is in force, which include equipment such as Samsung Galaxy, Huawei Ascend, Sony Xperia, Apple iPhone, among others.

Smart phones

Just as the first mobile changed the way we communicate, the smartphones They have had another great space to modify the way we develop daily. They are a work, communication and entertainment tool. Wikipedia defines them as a mobile phone type built on a mobile computing platform, with a greater capacity to store data and perform activities, similar to that of a minicomputer, and with greater connectivity than a conventional mobile phone. The term intelligent, which is used for commercial purposes, refers to the ability to be used as a pocket computer, and even replaces a personal computer in some cases.

<p>The main innovation of smartphones with respect to previous generations was the touch screen, in addition to the possibility of downloading different applications to share content with other users. All work mostly with operating systems such as Android, iOS, Blackberry, Symbian and Windows Phone and allow the user to maintain communication, even without a data plan, by connecting to Wi-Fi networks.</p>
<p>At <strong>Consumer Electronics Show 2015</strong>, held in Las Vegas, several of these devices were exhibited. Brands such as LG, Acer, Lenovo and ZTE showed the products that will govern this year and for the <strong>Mobile World Congress</strong>In Barcelona, ??more proposals are expected from manufacturers such as Sony, Samsung and Apple. However, the common denominator of the existing phones so far, is the presence of front and rear cameras that exceed 10MP, screens with more 5 and high resolution, in addition to attractive and lightweight designs.</p>
<h3>Advantages and disadvantages of smartphones</h3>
<p>Everything has a pro and a cons, also the evolved mobile phones or smartphones, which have simplified our lives with all their functions, but they can also compromise important aspects. A website called <strong></strong> Discuss, for example, some of the benefits of owning a smart mobile phone:</p>
<li><strong>Internet connection</strong>: Internet access from the device allows the user to find content of interest for academic, work, social or entertainment purposes.</li>
<li><strong>Quick and easy communication</strong>: not only through calls and SMS messages (which began to be used in the late 90s), but also through different applications with written, voice or video chat, at any time and from anywhere in the world.</li>
<li><strong>Online operations</strong>: There is no need to move to banks, or stores, even to public administration services. This was also possible with the computer, but with the Smartphone, you can be anywhere and still perform errands virtually, through a computer that fits in the palm of your hand.</li>
<li><strong>Entertainment Options</strong>: infinite applications for leisure and entertainment circulate in the stores of the different operating systems and specialized brands and can be downloaded by users, on the device. In this aspect, Smartphones have created trends. The so-called selfies, self-taken photographs, are part of that possibility of leisure and entertainment that has become fashionable (although lately we talk about usies, images captured in the same way but that involve several people). These photos can be modified and become an image of great artistic quality, through the use of filters included in the camera or downloaded apps and then share them through different social networks.</li>
<p>In terms of disadvantages, smartphones have a separate space. Some of the damages that could be caused by owning one of these equipment can be:</p>

<li><strong>Loss of privacy</strong>: The possibility of being located at any time, wherever you are, through a call, chat, social network and stop counting, you can leave anyone without the opportunity of a short break.</li>
<li><strong>Battery life</strong>: smartphones have little or no rest. The constant updates of the applications generate a decrease in the battery life and this can create complications when sending an urgent document, communicating in an emergency, etc. However, there are phones that already promise to improve this detail, such is the case of Sony's Xperia E4.</li>
<li><strong>Social isolation</strong>: contrary to what your purpose says (keep us connected), the Smartphone may cause social isolation. This is because the user can develop addiction for everything that happens in the virtual world of his phone and leave the real reality. This has happened with teenage users, even adults.</li>
<li><strong>Vulnerability to crime</strong>: To steal one of these phones without taking precautions such as passwords, applications without automatic start among other measures, could put at risk personal information that will be used by friends of others. It is also possible to be targeted by viruses, spam, malware and even phishing.</li>
<h3>What is coming?</h3>
<p>Proposals for innovations regarding mobile phones may leave more than one speechless. In fact, experts predict their disappearance in the way we know them today and their evolution towards <strong>Internet of Things</strong>.</p>
<p>The representative of the British software development company ARM Holdings, James Bruce, bets on that theory. "The phone is going to be the device that connects you, but not through the device itself." Small samples of that future, perhaps not so far away, are gadgets such as the Samsung Gear S, a smartwatch with many functions similar to a Smartphone, but obviously in the form of a clock.</p>
