Smartphones will be smart in next 5 years

Does anyone remember the first iPhone that Steve Jobs took out of his hat in 2007 and that ended up the incontestable leadership of Nokia at that time? The iPhone of that year was the first device that could be defined as intelligent, although it had not so many features like today’s smartphones.
Today we can talk about devices with features that make them smart, such as voice assistants, for example, Siri on iPhones, Cortana on the Microsoft devices, Google Assistant on Android devices, or Bixby in Samsung terminals. Also, maps, such as those of Google or Apple that make up their devices, can be considered as ‘intelligent’ applications that guide us through where we want to move.
The latest Huawei premium device, the Mate 10 launched in the last quarter of 2017, carries the first processor with some Artificial Intelligence feature. And it’s true. People who had the opportunity to try it, pleasantly surprised by the photographic recognition of objects and scenes and the translator, incredibly fast and with a translation quality worth noting.
The experts, however, point out that it will be the year 2023 when the Smartphone will be really ‘smart’, thanks to improved connectivity with 5G, neuronal and neuromorphic processors that will mimic the behavior of the human brain, more and better sensors, greater memory capacity, and artificial intelligence applications with more advanced developments in machine learning, natural language processing, speech recognition, and so on.
The consultancy Deloitte, for example, points out that “by the year 2023, 5G networks have already been launched in most developed countries, offering higher data transmission speeds, and shorter latency or response times. In China alone there will be more than one billion 5G users in five years. ”
The chips dedicated with Artificial Intelligence , explains the consultant, probably have become standard in all the smartphones by 2023 , whether they are of Premium, medium or low range, and will be the most commonly used to assist machine learning applications to offer better recommendations on routes, more realistic augmented reality or more attractive photos. “Two-thirds of Smartphone owners in the next five years will use at least one Artificial Intelligence application on their device, and about 80 percent will be aware that they have a terminal with those capabilities.”
The sensors will be another of the improved components in the Smartphone in 2023. For analysts, the infrared camera in the front area of the device will end up being imposed as a biometric system of authentication to the fingerprint systems, which will allow the recognition of the fingerprint through glass and metal, even when the fingers are wet. Even GPS sensors will be more precise, and will allow a location with a margin of error of just 30 centimeters, compared to the current five meters.
Deloitte also predicts by 2023 that more than three-quarters of smartphone owners in developed countries will use some form of biometric authentication, and 80 percent of smartphones will have at least one dedicated biometric sensor, such as a fingerprint, reader or 3-D facial scanner. Currently only 29 percent of smart device users use fingerprint authentication, when around 42 percent of devices have a dedicated fingerprint sensor.
Memory will also be relevant for the improvement of Artificial Intelligence capabilities. The Smartphone in 2023 will logically have more storage memory. The average will be, according to experts, 128 GB, compared to the current 32 GB, so there will be more space for applications that use machine learning or automatic learning.
And in that future for 2023, as a real intelligent device, the Smartphone will become the Swiss key that will be able to authenticate its owners in physical and digital environments, including homes, hotel rooms, cars, buses, trains, airplanes, commerce electronic, or websites of financial entities.
