The annual MWC World Mobile Communication Conference is nearing its end, and the entire conference is not as interested as one might expect. Samsung did not release the new flagship Galaxy S during the exhibition like in previous years, but only released a tablet computer, which almost gave the stage to Chinese brands.
A little different from previous years, at MWC 2017, mobile phone manufacturers not only introduced mobile phone products but also introduced micro-innovation of local technology, which saw a slight interest in mobile phones. Headed by OPPO, LG, Meizu, Sony, and Qualcomm, we have witnessed the release of technology from many technology companies, from design breakthroughs to hardware technology upgrades. Kali Technologies, which is more advanced and representative. So where will smartphones go this year? Let’s talk briefly.
Highscreen share is booming
This year, the new products offered by MWC, both mobile phones, tablets, and bracelets, have extremely high screen proportions. Blood screens have been the industry for the past year. This year, there are popular hotspots, ultra-high screen proportions and flexible screens that can be folded and tilted.

For the international display giant LG, the 5.7-inch 18: 9 ratio screen equipped with the LG G6 uses a rounded panel screen design, and the Samsung S8, which focuses on higher screen ratios, has a rounded corner screen design. , which both have high screens. The dual benefits of proportional and extremely narrow bezels also improve the performance of mobile phone screens in terms of anti-fall and scattering resistance.

The rectangular screen of a traditional mobile phone is not good on all four corners of the screen. This year, the new mobile phone is on display at the MWC. Round panel design is used for make-up, which belongs to the category of advanced micro-innovation.
In addition to the high proportion of mobile phone screens, flexible screens are a portable fold trend of future development. The CWC in 2017, domestic panel maker tyanma the 5.5-inch FC Flexible HD 1080p display showing the attention made. This flexible display can achieve the effect of bending below the 5 mm rotation radius, and the industry is currently top in the industry, Tianma said. Also, Samsung is also considering launching a mobile phone product with a foldable flexible screen at the end of the year.
Comprehensive upgrade of imaging technology
Another obvious trend of MWC 2017 is that flagship mobile phones have begun to take great pictures. What is it?
Huawei P10 and P10 Plus have once again proved their intentions with the Leica Dual Lens camera system. Dual Lens Dual Camera 2.0 Pro Edition was upgraded with a combination of 12-megapixel color lens and 20 megapixel black & white pixel lens.
At the MWC conference, Sony also released 4 new models simultaneously. At the same time, Sony also announced the world’s first CMOS mobile phone sensor with built-in DRAM memory, which can read images in 1/120 seconds. It’s an IMX318 chip. This is 4 times the shooting at 1000fps in FHD resolution, which is 8 times the IMX318 chip. It’s comparable to many professional-level cameras, and it’s the product of the preexisting black technology.
OPPO also officially released the world’s first “5X wireless zoom” technology. Based on the industry’s first periscope dual-camera structure, OPPO applies optical image stabilization to telephoto lenses that often require image stabilization. Compared to the industry’s 2X zoom standard, this new technology successfully achieves 5x zoom, while simultaneously delivering a slimmer body, better anti-shake performance on dual-camera phones and clearer image acquisition experience.
With the introduction of the latest camera technology of these mobile phone manufacturers, the smartphone technology of smartphones will begin a new change in 2017.
The fast charge flash charge function will soon become standard
With the increase in user usage time of mobile applications, increased mobile phone processing capabilities, and continuous increase in screen display, higher battery life and faster charging have become the key considerations for consumers to purchase and use. Are. At this year’s WMC, mobile phone manufacturers introduced innovative fast charging technologies and wireless charging applications.
For example, Meizu has released the third generation super-fast charging technology, which can be packed with 3000mAh battery in 20 minutes. At the same time, it has a proper protective mechanism and heat control is very well controlled.
Meizu’s Super Fast Charge is based on a new fast-charge architecture design and uses a new high voltage direct charge solution of 11V / 5A. Up to charging, the maximum power can reach 55W, which is 5 times faster than normal mobile phone charging speed. Looking at this comparison , people have to think about Apple again, with the iPhone becoming less and less attractive without fast charging .
Although it will take longer for this technology to become truly popular, with Meizo’s move we can at least see the beginning of this year’s smart phone charging. In 2017 in the smart phone market, competition in the mobile phone charging setting will continue.

5G becomes the next commanding height for manufacturers
With the hurdles of the mobile Internet, the theme of the MWC exhibition has slowly returned to technology and is undoubtedly the focus of all 5G equipment manufacturers and chip manufacturers. Nonetheless, new applications like VR / AR, driverless, and AI in which people all talk about relying on 5G technology. Supporting different scenarios for smartphones, 4G to 5G in the migration process, increasing load counts and enhancing the ability to experience the whole scenario will become the focus of the next stage of development.
ZTE released 5G high frequency and low-frequency serial pre-commercial products during MWC2017, and released the world’s first Gigabit Phone Gigabit mobile phone with download rate of 1Gb per second; Huawei has mainly launched “5G technology 4G “and” 4G network 5G “.
International manufacturers such as Qualcomm and Nokia have demonstrated the potential of 5G in areas such as car positioning, robotics, and smart home. People can experience the upgrade of the experience brought by 5G at the booth, which is great progress.
Obviously, with the emergence of 2015 and the current advance pattern does not matter, 5G has been favored by many manufacturers. Intel, Qualcomm, and China’s mobile phone maker ZTE, etc. showed the 5G “magic” to the outside world at this MWC, and they also focused on 5G outlets.
in short. , Has become the next commanding height for 5G manufacturers to seize, and the order is underway.
Although the absence of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 at the MWC exhibition this year is a huge pity, the various “black technologies” introduced by mobile phone manufacturers force people to watch the “technological revolution.” When smartphones become more consistent and AR / VR fever goes away, it is discovered that basic technology should come first. When applications face obstacles, it’s time for a technological revolution.
With this year’s MWC exhibition, it looks like we will be looking forward to more and more mobile phone technology, especially 5G technology and photography innovation in 2017. At the same time, in this spectacular visual feast, we have seen the great development of homemakers, and they have once again proven the world with the unparalleled innovation of domestic manufacturers and the power of R&D. These new technologies are likely to lead to the development of future smartphones.
