Samsung seem to want to remain at the top too, and they plan to do that by completely innovating the market, and according to new announcements from their first analyst day event in eight years, they have many ambitious plans for the future of mobile.
Firstly, Samsung want to keep pushing higher definition screens into our hands, and they are planning on releasing smartphones with a pixel density as high as 560 PPI by the end of next year. This would be a 400% improvement from the industry standard 7 years ago.
Samsung even plan to take this further and introduce 4K displays, or what Samsung are now calling UHD (Ultra High Definition) by 2015 or 2016.
On top of this, Samsung plans to break more barriers to create a better vision for the future of mobile. To do this, they will work to create new solutions and technologies for mobile RAM, application processors, image sensors, camera equipment, and displays.
Their end goal by 2017 will be a smartphone device that is powered by an energy efficient 64-bit Samsung AP, contains a 4K display, a higher quality isocell camera, and on top of this, the display will be truly flexible and foldable.
This is a lot of information to take in, but I’m glad we are seeing Samsung’s plans for the future of mobile, and I hope we will see some great innovations from the Android front-runner.
Other than that though, the future of Samsung is certainly looking to be quite exciting.
