Smartphones have become one of the most popular gadgets in recent years. They are among the most popular items in Amazon’s, Flipkart’s, and other platforms’ biggest online festive sales. Among the reasons for smartphones, popularity is how these devices have constantly evolved/improved/enhanced. Few devices have made the same leap as smartphones. Here are eight ways your phones will change in 2023, according to our crystal ball.
5G Adorable Mobiles
5G phones will become less expensive. Lava, an Indian brand, currently offers the cheapest 5G phone. This year, Samsung, Xiaomi, Realme, and others are likely to launch 5G phones under Rs 12,000 as well. With Airtel and Reliance Jio almost confirming that they will not charge a premium for 5G services, the popularity of 5G phones is expected to skyrocket. According to reports, the shipment of 5G phones in India may exceed 100 million this year.
In the year 2022, 200MP camera phones were introduced. They are expected to become mainstream in 2023. The Redmi Note 12 series will be the first to launch with a 200MP sensor in 2023. The Samsung Galaxy S23 series phones are also expected to have a 200MP camera sensor. This is most likely in the Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Ultra devices. There will be a lot more devices with these this year.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Flip phones have outgrown their infancy. They are regarded as powerful phones that are productivity powerhouses, rather than just unique form factors. The pair makes folding phones appear more feasible and popular.
By 2023, more folding phones may have progressed beyond the concept stage. Google is widely expected to release the Pixel Fold. Oppo and Vivo may also release folding phones in global markets.
48mp Camera Sensor
In 2022, Apple made a significant camera change by increasing the sensor to 48MP. The increase, however, is limited to the iPhone 14 Pro series. All four iPhones in 2023 are expected to have at least a 48MP sensor. Dynamic Island may also be included in all iPhones in 2023.
Since 2020, phones with 12GB RAM have been available, including the Galaxy S20 and OnePlus 8 series. The top-end Android phones in 2023 are expected to have 16GB of RAM. The best phones in the OnePlus 11 series, iQoo 11 series, Vivo X90 series, and Samsung Galaxy S23 series may have 16GB RAM.
200-Watt Fast Charging
Last year, Android phones received 200 Watt fast charging. This year, it may be available on more affordable Android phones. More Android phones may come with the promise of charging smartphones up to 60% in 10 minutes. For iPhone users, it is highly unlikely that Apple will exceed its 30-watt limit in 2023 as well.
