Smartphone trends keep on changing and the companies are trying hard to attract the consumers by luring them with new features and specifications. If you are looking to buy a new smartphone for yourself, then you must check out the top 5 features that most of the high-end phones are equipped with.
1. Bezel-less 18:9 display
The latest smartphone trend found in all premium phones is having bezel-less or full-view 18:9 display which offers an amazing and immersive overall visual experience.
The only drawback of having infinite display is that they are more susceptible to damage or any kind of accidents. You may find the 18:9 displays in the phones priced under 20,000.
2. Dual Cameras
If you are someone who loves photography, you need to have a phone with dual rear cameras. In this, there are two camera systems (placed horizontally or vertically on the front or on rear panel) resulting in sharper and more detailed images along with ultra-wide angle support and 2X optical zoom.
Dual camera provides excellent results but several other factors like sensor size, pixel density, aperture size also play a vital role in the output result. Dual camera setup is more beneficial in budget range mobiles as manufacturers do not put best available sensors in the device but in high-end phones, this feature is of not much relevance. The smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, Google Pixel, OnePlus 3, LG G5, HTC 10 offer better results in low light as compared to any reasonably priced dual camera phone.
3. Face Unlock
These days, most of the smartphones are equipped with facial recognition feature for security and unlocking the device. Though it is not as widespread and more secure as compared to the fingerprint reader, this latest biometric feature is coming in all the latest high-end phones.
Samsung was the first one to include advanced facial recognition feature with iris scanning technology into its flagship device Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Offlate, Apple has introduced this mechanism in its flagship phone Apple iPhone X. It doesn't consume much battery but is not as accurate as fingerprint scanner.
4. Quick Charge 3.0 support
Phone charging is a tedious and time-consuming task, hence Qualcomm Technologies has come up with Quick Charge 3.0 support which is the fastest and most efficient charging technology till date. It charges the device to 80% capacity in about 35-40 minutes as compared to Dash charge which charges to about 63% of full charge in 30 minutes of charging. The latest phones have better optimized and smaller 16nm chipsets for much improved and higher battery life.
5. Selfie Cameras
High quality selfie cameras are in demand these days besides other popular trends such as 18:9 display panels, quick charge, face unlock and dual cameras. Selfie experience is enhanced with attributes like Live beautification, dual front cameras for portraits and group clicks, 4K selfie videos and even incorporate A.I (Artificial intelligence) for superb selfie images.
The mobile phone manufacturers have optimized software and lens quality to improve the pics clicked by front facing snapper. These days, most of the mid-range phones boast of at least 8MP front shooter and 13MP for premium phones. Vivo V7+ is the first smartphone in the world to sport a 24MP moonlight front camera.
We have just evaluated the latest smartphone trends that need to be considered while you are deciding your next smartphone. Besides the above features, there are other things that might interest the consumer such as USB Type-C port, Stereo speakers, water resistance or AI capabilities.
