Smartphones have been evolving for years. With the passage of time, our mobile phones have only seen new establishments that have made our lives more comfortable. Who would have thought that devices which were once highly expensive with the only purpose to communicate would now rule the world with so many functionalities? Just like every year, even 2019 saw various technology breakthroughs becoming a reality. While each one of them has its significance, we came up with the 5 Best Smartphone Innovations in 2019.
Sliding Camera- Vivo Nex
What had been only a concept for a long time came into existence with Vivo Nex. The sliding camera is now a reality, and it looks promising. Launched in July earlier this year, Vivo Nex comes with a motorized front camera, that automatically pops up on starting the camera app. It clicks the photo and goes back inside the phone in no time. From all that we have seen of this phone, it looks like a promising technology and the future seems bright for this concept.
Another Sliding Camera- Oppo Find X
Taking a step-ahead from Vivo Nex, Oppo came up with a better sliding camera design where the module carries both front and back cameras. Oppo Find X sports a high-end chip of Snapdragon 845 from Qualcomm to run this module. It comes in beautiful colors and still costs less than a lot of flagships. It is quite an underrated phone which hasn’t got its due recognition.
Oppo Super VOOC Fast Charging
OnePlus had been a champion in fast charging for years with its dash charger technology. However, this year, Oppo managed to beat dash charging with its VOOC tech. With this technology, smartphones like Oppo Find X and Oppo F9 Pro can be charged from 0 to 100% in as low as 35 minutes. It manages to charge the phone in a quick time without even slightly heating the phone. VOOC charging is a technology that promises to change the way we use smartphones.
ASUS ROG Phone 2 for Gamers
With all the establishments going on in the smartphone world, one can expect them to replace gaming consoles in the future. ASUS ROG Phone 2 is a step towards making smartphones that are dedicated to gamers. ROG Phone 2 is optimized to support controllers for playing games. It comes with Snapdragon 855 processor built on 7nm technology. It has AI cameras and supports up to 4K UHD video recording. ROG Phone has a liquid-cooling technology and has a 120Hz screen which enables it to give a smooth gaming experience.
In-display Fingerprint by Vivo V11 Pro
Vivo has earned the respect of many this year by regularly working on bringing something new to the plate for smartphone users. While most of the brands are following the herd, and adding face-unlock in their models, Vivo went out and launched its in-display fingerprint sensor phone. It has managed to save space by doing so, which can be utilized in future smartphones for better specs. Slowly, Vivo has been adding this feature in even its mid-range smartphones. The company has built its reputation of becoming an innovator, and we expect the same from them in the coming future.
