Mobile has become the new normal in business. A company without a mobile-optimized solution undoubtedly loses a significant proportion of clients. Thus, competitiveness is the main driving force behind the app market growth.
The increased adoption of connected gadgets has led to the remarkable growth of the Mobile Technology industry. Smartphones and tablets affect customer behavior and provide many business opportunities. More and more users expect the availability of sites and services via mobile devices because they need convenience and freedom.
Take a look at the hottest mobile technology trends 2019 that will shape the industry in the near future.
1. Artificial intelligence (AI)
We’re getting one step closer to mobile devices morphing into robots and taking over the planet. Artificial intelligence is used to bridge translation gaps with voice recognition. Understanding the user’s voice will help developers and marketers learn more about these people.
You may be familiar with some of these:
- Google Assistant
But now regular mobile apps are using voice recognition software and AI to enhance the user experience. Voice recognition also improves hands-free use. Some mobile app accessibility is also linked to Artificial intelligence (AI).
2.Increased mobile payments
Online shopping is also among the top trends in mobile technology. Currently, eCommerce is one of the most rapidly developing markets. More customers prefer online shopping to its traditional alternative of going to physical stores. Online customers used to make payments via internet banking or credit cards.
As mobile security improves and global app revenue rises, we’ll see an increase in mobile payments as well. Among them are:
- bank apps
- Google Pay
- Samsung Pay
- Apple Pay
The situation changed with the introduction of Google Wallet, Apple Pay and other mobile payment apps.
3. 5G Connectivity
According to the latest specifications, 5G will have a maximum throughput of 20Gbps on the downlink side, and up to 10Gbps on the uplink side. This potentially means that you will be able to download a Full HD movie in a matter of seconds, but that is if we were living in a perfect world. The aforementioned speeds are theoretical, so we could realistically see 100Mbps per user, which is still faster than any LTE standard we’ve seen till now.
The same thing can be applied to connected devices and appliances if and when they finally connect to the 5G network. There are other benefits of having 5G officially getting rolled out, and they have been listed below:
- A 1000 times bandwidth per unit area
- 10-100 connected devices
- Around 99 percent availability
- 100 percent coverage
- 90 percent reduction in network energy usage
- Up to 10-year battery life for low power devices
An enhanced version of reality where live direct or indirect views of physical real-world environments are augmented with superimposed computer-generated images over a user’s view of the real-world, thus enhancing one’s current perception of reality.
The origin of the word augmented is augment, which means to add or enhance something. In the case of Augmented Reality (also called AR), graphics, sounds, and touch feedback are added into our natural world to create an enhanced user experience.
Types of Augmented Reality
- Marker Based Augmented Reality
- Markerless Augmented Reality
- Projection Based Augmented Reality
- Superimposition Based Augmented Reality
Mobile security is the protection of smartphones, tablets, laptops and other portable computing devices, and the networks they connect to, from threats and vulnerabilities associated with wireless computing. Mobile security is also known as wireless security.
App security remains the hottest issue for providers and consumers. Since users are feeding and managing confidential data in their smartphones and other devices, they need excellent security measures in place.Businesses need to start prioritizing mobile security to protect user information and make sure that all transactions are safe.
