Smartphones 2022: trends, expected new.
It is still difficult to say how smartphones of 2022 will change our lives and what innovations they will bring.
On the one hand, competition has become less fierce due to U.S. sanctions against Huawei and other Chinese smartphone manufacturers. The Chinese giant had all the chances to catch up and overtake Samsung by the end of the second decade of the 21st century, but lately it has been stalling under the pressure of U.S. restrictions. And it is unlikely that the situation will significantly improve with the arrival of Biden in 2022.
This is what we should expect - the emergence of fully wireless smartphones. Such experiments have already taken place in the relatively recent past (Meizu Zero), but remained purely experiments. There is a good chance that some of the leading manufacturers will risk doing it again. Especially since it promises complete sealing and the possibility, for example, to bathe the device in sea water without the risk of oxidation of the contacts.
A camera built into the screen. Also nothing super new - you can remember ZTE Axon 20 5G. In the case of the latter, the quality of the picture left much to be desired because the display matrix creates significant distortions. And it is unlikely that this defect can be eliminated by hardware in the near future. But it can be done with software! "Smart algorithms" are now so advanced that they can draw everything themselves in real time.
Xiaomi Mi 12 и Mi 12 Ultra
The first renders of Xiaomi's upcoming flagship have already popped up online. The novelty promises a sub-screen camera, curved display with LTPO technology and the ability to change the refresh rate in increments of 1 Hz to 120 Hz, depending on current needs. There's also talk of incredibly fast 200-watt (!) wired charging and 120-watt wireless charging. And these chips won't ruin the
Apple iPhone 14
However, analysts are already saying that it is the "apple phone" with the number 14 that promises to be a truly breakthrough smartphone for the company. We are talking about the introduction of screens with 120 Hz refresh rate.
Huawei P60 и P60 Pro
Given the fact that even the Huawei P50 Pro has not yet been released, it is too early to talk about the 60. However, we can be sure that the smartphone will be released in spite of any American sanctions. But what it will be - it's hard to say yet. It is likely that we will see on it a new version of Harmony OS without the built-in Google services.
Samsung Galaxy S22
The first rumors about the future flagship of the Korean giant have already leaked to the press. It is still very difficult to trust them. However, among them there are very curious points:
All Galaxy S22 series smartphones will be thinner than their predecessors and have slightly smaller screens: 6.06 inches versus the former 6.2 for the base model and 6.55 inches instead of 6.7 for the S22 Plus. Only the Galaxy S22 Ultra's display promises to be slightly larger than its predecessor, 6.81 inches instead of 6.8.
The S22 Ultra has a 200-megapixel camera. Clearly, there won't be much practical output from it. However, there will be a new leader in the "race of megapixels" for some time. Until the Chinese will not make a smartphone with a 250 Mp camera. These can!
The new top-of-the-line Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 895 mobile processors, depending on the market. Already now their prototypes began to shine in benchmarks and leaks.
