If you’re planning to upgrade any of your electronic equipment, maybe you need to take a look the latest trending of the electronic products. 2019 is the year of innovation in technology, the foldable screen phones were launched 0ne after another, such as the Samsung Galaxy F and Huawei Mate X. 5G technology is gradually formed that makes 5G smart phones debut in the mobile phone markets. Besides, there are still lots of products will be coming on stage in the near future. So, today we will talk about 5 must-have electronic products in 2019.
Foldable screen smart phones
Early in the 2013, many people predicted that ‘the foldable phone will come out next year’. However, we’ve waited for 6 years. Fortunately, when we start to give up, HUAWEI and SAMSUNG claimed that they will launch a foldable phone in 2019.
And now, the foldable smart phones finally come out to the world, the Samsung Galaxy F and the Huawei Mate X were released one after another few days ago. So, what we can know from the new generation handsets and what technology can make our life easier or more convenience in the future? That is the thing that these latest innovations should bring to us.
Samsung Galaxy F
Be the first to see the future, Samsung latest debut its first foldable smart phone on February 21st. Ten years after the Galaxy Series has launched to the public, they did not just change the shape or appearance of the smart device, they begin to change the shape of tomorrow.
What is the difference between it and other mobile phones?
We can see some details from the rumors in the video, Samsung Galaxy Fold has triple cameras on the rear, a high quality and build all around and a gorgeous 7.3 inch dynamic AMOELD display when unfolded. It also has 12 GB of RAM buy from the 12 GB of storage and 4300mh of battery capacity. Of course, the Samsung Galaxy F also has the wireless power share feature that is allows you to charge compatible watches Galaxy earbuds and other smart phones on the back of the fold.
It is also extremely easy to hold in one hand and also can easily throw the F in your pocket, so it is a very portable product when it is folded. Of course, you will have a bunch of colours to choose from, you can get an Astro Blue, Martian Green, Cosmos Black and Space silver as you can see.
The powerful lenses
On the front of the Fold, you do have a 10 megapixel selfie camera just like the S10, the rear cameras that have a telephoto lens and it also has a standard wide-angel lens. The third lens on the rear part is a super wide angle lens that allows you to take a sweeping shot. You can use these cameras when phone is folded or when it is unfolded to see larger photo previews on the larger 7.3 inch display screen.
When it comes to media consumption, such as playing movies or games while it is unfolded, it is quite amazing if you are looking for the larger screen in your life. But the first generation Samsung Galaxy F has a quiet expensive price tag, $1980, but it is also the highlight of the smart phone market and the technology world. It gets 6 lens and 2 screens, which one of the screens is seamlessly foldable. So, will you pay for this when it is available at the store?
Huawei Mate X
Meet the unprecedented, which is the slogan of the Huaiwei Mate X foldable 5G smart phone. The new folding design integrates a new era of communicative interaction. Keep it compact for daily smart phone tasks or unfold to reveal an exceptional experience in multitasking or entertainment.
Better foldable screen design than Samsung Galaxy F
Huawei’s Mate X places its fold-out screen on the outside of the device, so that it covers the front and rear of the phone when closed. In both modes, the display is larger than Samsung’s. Huawei’s device is also flatter and thinner when shut.
However, unlike Samsung’s Galaxy Fold it does not have a second display on its reverse side.
The Huawei Mate X’s screen is 8inch when the phone is unfolded. When it closed, the Mate X’s larger screen is 6.8inch and the smaller one 6.6in – which makes both bigger than that of the iPhone XS Max.
When you shut the foldable X, the phone is 11mm thick. The Samsung Galaxy Fold’s main screen is 7.3inch when unfolded, unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the Huawei Mate X does not place any of its lenses on the same side as its screen when unfolded. Instead, they are placed on the flipside of the device on a strip that also features a fingerprint sensor. This runs down the side of the smaller of the two folded displays when closed and doubles up as a side-grip when open.
This potentially places the Mate X at a disadvantage to the Fold, since it becomes impossible to use its unfolded screen to take selfies. However, it is not yet clear whether this will be a serious consideration in practice.
From the Huawei announcement, this foldable Mate X will be available in Q2.
Royole Flex Pai
Actually, the first company to produce foldable smart phone is the ROYOLE, a Chinese company produce the Flex Pai in 2018. Measuring 7.8 inches diagonally, this is an Android tablet in its extended mode which becomes two, not just one, Android phones when it’s flexed closed.
Yes, Royole is apparently a hyper-ambitious company. It provides two SIM slots and tries to provide an auto-detection system that only shows content on the half of the folded screen that you’re facing at any given time. One of the two phones is assigned as the primary, and its content spills out onto the full tablet when the device is opened.
The first foldable screen smartphone at the market
You will get a 1920 x 1440 resolution on the full display, which shrinks to less than half when you’re in phone mode, thanks in large part to the huge swath of disused OLED screen that wraps around the wide-arcing hinge. Still, a 308ppi pixel density is sufficient for the screen to look reasonably sharp. The bigger issue with it is that i’s simply of poor quality.
The biggest failure of the FlexPai is, predictably, its software and basic operation. Any time you rotate the device or fold / unfold it, it gets deeply confused and freaked out. Apps stacking on top of each other and overlapping with widgets as the tablet was transitioning into phone mode.
You may launched the camera accidentally more than once. There’s nothing intuitive about the automatic switch between the two phones. Royole’s software is called Water OS, and definitely felt out of our depth. Logic and predictability are at a premium anytime you pick this device up.
Lest you think the Royole FlexPai is some sort of distant-future concept, you should know that it’s already on sale in China for 8,999 yuan. That equates to roughly $1,320 in US currency, and Royole would happily sell you a developer edition for the same price over here in the States if you’re into the sort of awkward, goofy weirdness this folding tablet provides.
5G Smart Phone
Actually, some regions have deployed 5G mobile networks. But these early 5G network connections need to be used with wireless routers, that is, they are not really a communication network.
But this year, we can finally own a real 5G phone!
As a leader in the 5G field, Huawei, Yijia, Xiaomi, OPPO, Vivo, Samsung and other major manufacturers are planning to launch 5G mobile phones in 2019.
It is also reported that Huawei’s 5G mobile phone will use a foldable screen, allowing consumers to enjoy two emerging technologies on the same device. The three major operators also plan to launch a commercial 5G network in 2020, allowing China to fully enter the 5G era.。
On the other side of the ocean, US telecommunications company Verizon announced that it will support the Motorola Moto Z3 series of 5G mobile phones. The phone will be connected to the 5G network by an external module. AT&T also promised to launch a Samsung mobile phone with a built-in 5G module in the second half of 2019.
Except for China and US, SONY from Japan and SAMSUNG from Korea also planning to launch their 5G phones.
Wireless Charging Devices
Cell phone wireless charging is no longer something new in our daily life, but what about laptops and headphones?
In 2017, Dell tested the idea with a $1,750 laptop that used the technology of startup WiTricity. In 2019, using this technology will become cheaper and more convenient.
Thanks to startups like Energysquare which has developed a universal wireless charger that can power a variety of notebooks with conductive charging technology.
As for headphones, Apple has announced that it will introduce a matching wireless charging box when the next-generation AirPods (probably named AirPods 2?) unveiled. This time point is likely to be the 2019 Global Developers Conference.
A big trend in 2018 is the voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. And in 2019, these smart assistants will be further integrated into your life (accurately, your ears).
Today, some headphones from Bose and Jabra are already available to support Amazon Alexa. Some headsets from JBL, Sony and Bose, as well as Google’s own Pixel headsets, can support Google Assistant.
Qualcomm chose to contribute to this trend. At the end of last year, Qualcomm launched a complete set of development kits, aiming to reduce the difficulty and cost of integrating major Alexa into Alexa products, and prompted them to launch smart headsets compatible with an Amazon voice assistant.
Apple’s AirPods 2 is also likely to be equipped with the basic functions of recognizing the “Hey, Siri” voice commands. Although Apple has not confirmed whether it plans to carry out this work in 2019, the upgrade of wireless headsets is an inevitable trend.
8K Ultra HD TV
Many people have seen or heard of “Ultra High Definition”, “UHD”, “4K” TVs, and some people even have one at home. But many people don’t understand the difference between “Ultra HD 4K” and our familiar “HD”.
Simply, the reason why it is called Ultra HD 4K is because the resolution of this TV is 3840 x 2160 and about 4,000 pixels wide, which is 4 times that of traditional HD (1920 x 1080) TV. This technology was matured as early as 2010, but it didn’t replace HDTV and enter thousands of households until 2016.
However, many companies already have decided to abandon 4K TV and promote 8K TV. Because although the name is 2 times of 4, the 8K TV has a pixel resolution of 4 times of a 4K TV (16 times that of a high-definition TV), so it can display images in clearer detail.
Samsung has already put on an 8K TV – but because of its amazing $15,000 price, this product had not really caught the rush. Industry observers expect LG and Sony to expand their market by launching their first commercial 8K series of TVs at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January.
