Development of Smartphone Technology
Smartphones are amazing products that have evolved from a single-function communication tool to a digital product that combines the functionality of a phone, camera, music player, and gaming console. We hardly find a second electronic product that can compare to smartphones.
In the development of smartphones so far, both the processor, screen, imaging system, fast charging, and other functions have been greatly improved, with many dark technologies added to the phone, now the flagship phone is a really strong performance.
But do you feel that the phone in the last year has improved a lot in terms of image, other functions can be mentioned as a general improvement. So, the time has come to 2023, the phone can be improved and with what features? Let’s Discuss Smartphone Technology Development in 2023:
1 Inch Camera Sensor Has Another Breakthrough
In 2022, all major mobile phone manufacturers are making efforts in mobile thinking, the most representative may be the Xiaomi 12S Ultra, the combination of a large one-inch base and periscopic telephoto can be said to be a benchmark.
In 2023, I believe that there will be many manufacturers who will introduce mobile phones with 1-inch outsole + periscopic telephoto lens. Of course, mobile phone images are not just hardware stacking, but software optimization and tuning will be very important. This depends on the understanding and suitability of the major mobile phone manufacturers.
Xiaomi has already started re-polishing the Sony IMX989 with new optical features. While some manufacturers make 1 inch sensors more powerful. The side of the industry series next year may send 2G + 6P glass lens, there may be new equipment in the main camera 1 inch + 2G+6P + variable aperture combination. Glass + plastic flexible aperture structure 1 inch main camera small design is not a dream.
For reference, Huawei Mate 50 Pro, with the addition of a variable aperture, greatly improves the power of the optical system for motion picture, with four stops of intelligent aperture in automatic mode, which can intelligently match the aperture size according to different scenes. . In professional mode, the depth of field range and bokeh level can be adjusted to your liking with a ten-stop adjustable aperture.
Fast charging technology
Although 120W fast charging is more than enough, manufacturers are still doing research and development to improve it. We recently introduced 150W, 165W, and 210W fast charging.
The next thing is to introduce Realme’s 240W fast charging solution with the GT Neo5 next month. In this case the Realme 240W flash charging will reach the highest power of the type C 3.1 protocol in this category, which is a major technological feat for mobile phones.
OPPO’s MariSilicon Y Commercial Debut
The MariSilicon Y audio-specific chipset is a new technology expected to debut in OPPO’s Find X6 Series of smartphones in 2023. This chip is the second proprietary chip from OPPO, following the successful launch of MariSilicon X, which improved OPPO’s camera quality. to the next level. The MariSilicon Y chip is specially designed to improve sound quality and is expected to offer new features and capabilities.
One of the key features of the MariSilicon Y chip is its high-speed Bluetooth solution, integrated to achieve a 400% faster transmission rate than standard Bluetooth. Additionally, the chip incorporates OPPO’s custom R&D functionality resulting in lossless URLC coding, allowing for the first time to achieve 192KHz/24bit lossless wireless audio transmission.
This means that users will be able to enjoy high quality, lossless sound wirelessly, without any loss of quality. The MariSilicon Y chip is expected to improve the overall sound performance of the Find X6 Series, making it an ideal device for music lovers and audiophiles.
Previously, the news that the iPhone 15 will use the A17 chip, and the A17 chip is produced using the TSMC 3nm process, Samsung also announced the production of the 3nm process in the first half of last year.
TSMC said the 3nm process will reduce power consumption by 25% to 30%, performance can be improved by 10% to 15%, and transistor density has increased by about 70%. From the TSMC 3nm process can be seen, the main focus is to reduce the power consumption of the phone, and improve the phone’s battery life, and performance.
TSMC’s continuous development of the 3nm process technology believes that the two Android chip giants Qualcomm and MediaTek will also join the time to use the 3nm process, and at that time the phone chip can bring further improvements.
Foldable display technology is another area that could see development in 2023. In recent years, we have seen the introduction of foldable smartphones from several manufacturers, such as Samsung and Huawei. However, these devices have faced some challenges, such as durability issues and lack of advanced applications and system customization. As manufacturers continue to develop foldable display technology, we may see more durable and flexible foldable screens, as well as better system and application integration, making foldable smartphones more practical and user-friendly.
Another area that could see growth in 2023 is the cost of foldable phones. Currently, foldable smartphones are very expensive, which limits their appeal to mainstream consumers. Manufacturers are likely to continue working on lowering the cost of foldable display technology, making it more accessible to a wider range of consumers. This will likely be achieved through economies of scale and improvements in manufacturing techniques, as well as reductions in the cost of materials used to produce foldable displays.
