NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / March 5, 2020 / 2019 is "a year of challenges and chances" for smartphone industry, for that although shipments of several smartphone manufactures is keeping increasing, the overall smartphone market encounter the continues decline of shipments globally. Given this dynamic, smartphone industry is hungry for more and further technology innovation to stimulate users' demands and the market vitality. Recent 2 years have witnessed the great brand-new features such as the beginning of 5G technology, foldable screen, etc. Though these new features may not seem that mature yet, they are establishing foundation and clarifying direction for smartphone in 2020s.
Stepping into 2020s, the world has now stepped into a new era of smartphones with further technology innovation and better functions. Here we estimate 7 trends that are worth expecting for smartphone industry:
- More Screen Forms and Higher Screen Proportion
Most of the smartphone companies have brought out phones with full screen. There's no denying that full screen does have advantages, especially for the outlook, which gives smartphone a more stunning visual effect and more outstanding screen display. The design of full screen, to some extent, drives the creative development of smartphone industry.
Dot-in/punch-hole display and no-notch display will probably be the dominate design in 2020. Compared to monobrow-notch and water-drop notch display, dot-in/punch- hole display is more aesthetic and visual-friendly. This design could optimize the screen ratio up to 95%. No-notch display is newly introduced to the market and it has the relatively highest screen ratio. It works through the pop-up camera on the top of the phone, which might be the main strength in 2020 for the middle-and-high end price product.
- 5G Smartphones Get into Market
2020 is considered as the ‘first year' of 5G communication, and the revolution it would bring will be the cause of both the rewarm and restructure of this industry. 5G market would be a huge trend for mobile terminal companies and the trend would even reach down to smartphone with main stream prices. The amount of output would lead the amount of 5G network user. Also, from the aspect of business communication, 5G will play an important role to improve the communication circumstance. 2020s will witness more 5G phones getting into the market and accepting users' test.

In the 2nd half of 2019, smartphone with 64M-pixcel rare camera has already come into sights. We can foresee that in 2020 this would be a new selling point for new product, with 80% of smartphone companies will bring out 64M-pixel smartphone.
With the development of 5G communication, more smartphone manufacturers will invest more into technology innovation to improve the pixels, there is no doubt that smartphone will enter into super high pixel era in 2020s.
- Foldable Phone
The state of foldables in 2020 is on to a rising path as showcased at this year's CES especially foldable PC's. Limited by cost and technology, foldable smartphones have not been widely accepted by consumers. However, increasing screen size of technology products is always the trend and consumers' pursuit, foldable smartphones that combine large screen with portable phone size are undoubtedly the only evolutionary direction of the mobile phone industry in the future. Smartphone manufacturers are keeping trying different foldable phone form at present and it is expected to see new breakthrough in 2020s.

Till now, it just takes less than 20 minutes to fully charge a smartphone with a 4000mAh battery, which shows that charging speed is more controllable.
In 2020s, ultra-fast charging will become the main tone. Afterall we now have 5G and 120Hz smartphones. This is the only way to catch up with the new trend of smartphones without changing the materials of batteries.
