5 technological trends that began in 2017 and will continue in 2018

This 2017 that leaves a wake that will last during 2018 in terms of technological trends in the smartphone sector. The iPhone X has revolutionized the market and its rise will be noticed, however other trends have come to stay. Do you want to know what will return this 2018? Take note.

Smartphones of more than one thousand euros

2017 brought us a bittersweet surprise: in a country where the minimum interprofessional salary is around 700 euros, the flagships of the main brands exceed 1,000 euros . Take for example the Samsung Galaxy Note8, the Google Pixel 2 or the iPhone X, which in its most basic version reaches 1,159 euros. Unfortunately, this trend is here to stay.

Surprising that taking into account that we can find computers that we use daily for about 500 euros, our inseparable mobiles, which barely last us 24 months, surpass those thousand euros. Yes, it is true that the technologies that make up our terminals and everything we can do with them are well worth those thousand euros, and that is that our phone is more a small and powerful computer than a simple phone to make calls .

Infinite screens

No, the iPhone X is not the first mobile to have a screen from edge to edge, in fact other brands such as Samsung, Google, LG, Huawei, OnePlus and many others integrate an almost infinite display. And in 2017 if your flagship did not mount a screen from side to side of the terminal, it is as if it were outdated . Edges are no longer fashionable.

The truth is that the infinite screens we love, but sometimes we have the feeling that we have lost a bit the north in this sense, and that there are magnificent phones like the iPhone 8 that have borders and absolutely nothing happens. But yes, this trend will continue in 2018 both in the high range as in the average and even in the most discreet mobiles .

Machine learning

Machine learning is one of those Artificial Intelligence things that drives us crazy: they make our virtual assistants a lot smarter , but they also make our apps do things we've never dreamed of before.

Without going any further, the machine learning of the iPhone X makes the Face ID learn our face , learning our changes over time: scars, beard, makeup ...

Machine learning is also able to identify objects in our photos , so you can look for things like "cats" on your photo reel. So you just have to ask Siri and she'll tell you which picture you're looking for. With Google Pixel the same thing happens, only that you can also get rid of things that simply remain in your photos, forgetting about Photoshop. But come on, you can also extract phone numbers or names of your images.

Augmented reality

Although Augmented Reality has been with us for years, it was not until Apple launched ARKit that it reached the general public to stay . The developers are creating new apps and games that immerse us in a world that integrates virtual reality objects in our environment.

The same goes for placing furniture in our living room, as in the Ikea app, which sneaks zombies to a plane of our face. The potential of RA is brutal and we will increasingly check it .

Biometric security systems

Passwords with uppercase and lowercase, robust, with numbers and characters, varied ... often a mess! Is not it much easier to unlock our phone with our fingerprint? Or better yet, with our face.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 mixes facial recognition with fingerprints while the iPhone X stays only with Face ID. But the future is promising: sweat, iris scanning, the shape of our heart ... in 2018 we will forget passwords forever .
