One of the important changes in mobile phones last year was the full-screen display. Today we are actually talking about two other small but important changes, that you might have noticed but ignored.
Technology is changing rapidly. The phone is following new developments year after year. Full-screen display got very much popular quickly in 2017. We are at the beginning of 2018 and we can already see many smartphones with full-screen smartphones. Whether it is a budget or a flagship smartphone, the display of the mobile phone is slowly transiting from 16: 9 to 18: 9.
What were the two Important changes in mobile phones last year
The first change is that the 3.5mm interface used in smartphones is getting smaller. A Weibo blogger has released an interesting statistic regarding the use of 3.55mm interface during the interval of 2016 and 2017. The data shows that the number of devices without a 3.5mm headphone jack has increased from 4% in 2016 to 16% in 2017.
In addition to 3.5mm headphone jack, there was another important change in the mobile phone industry last year i.e, the increasing use of Type-C interface in smartphone devices. The data above shows that the devices using Type-C interfaces have increased from 26% in 2016 to 42% in 2017. This change is the favorite for most of the flagship smartphones. After all, Type-C interface provides faster transfer speeds and can be used, either way, i,e. you can insert the Type-C plug either way as it doesn’t have the positive or negative terminal.
The mobile tech is developing so much rapidly that we might see most smartphone manufacturers implementing USB Type-C interface in their new phones in 2018; the latest and newest technology in the mobile phones!
