Miniaturization of components base and stem of the vast number of functions in the cloud will significantly reduce energy consumption in smart phones of the future, enable the use of non-contact methods for charging mobile devices. A wireless transmission of power, of which more than 100 years ago dreamed of the great inventor Nikola Tesla, realized in reality.
The charge is set
In the salons of communication we’ve observed scene: an unprepared buyer, in consultation with the seller, can not decide on what to choose. On the one hand, his eyes are attracted advertised smartphones driven operating systems such as Android or Apple iOS. On the other hand, the consultant outlet assures that the archaic-looking push-button telephones in standby mode can "hold" the battery more than a month. And if the person phone — it is a working tool, not a fashion accessory, the faster discharge of the battery are "too smart" phones can be a serious problem for their use. Therefore, extending the battery life by increasing its capacity is one of the main tasks that have to be solved in the future of smartphones.
In the smartphones of the future, along with the growth capacity of the battery will be important new technology of wireless power transmission over a distance. These technologies will help relieve some of the growing problem of e-filling power consumption while increasing the power and functionality of smartphones. Finally, what had once dreamed of Nikola Tesla began to implement. So a group of physicists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) some time ago, was tested method of wireless power transmission over a distance of several meters with a loss of less than 5% of the energy. In this case, the energy transfer was carried out thanks to the technology known as "strongly coupled magnetic resonance." In the case of the introduction of such technology recharging mobile devices in life is actually about the type chargers today will be forgotten. Will only problem charging smartphones except in Antarctica and the South Pole.
Size of an atom
With the active use battery is a smartphone, it is usually "burns out" for five to eight hours depending on the phone model. Therefore, active users of mobile Internet to stay in touch with the world, to carry a spare battery unit. Let’s face it, it’s not the most innovative solution to the problem, and it is unlikely with the upcoming smartphone will be given an additional power supply. Of course, over time, the batteries will be more powerful, but the power consumption is growing faster. Smartphones are all less like the phone and more mobile computer: their screen becomes more powerful processor, and the functional wider. For example, a number of manufacturers — Apple, LG, HTC, Huawei, and others — announced in late 2011, the first smartphone with high-performance quad-core processors. A released to the market at the same time Samsung Galaxy Note with five-inch screen looks even more like a tablet computer than phone.
Of course, one should not expect that the smartphone will be built in memory units are comparable in terms of those which are equipped with laptops. Although in this respect, progress does not stand still, so for example, a group of experts from IBM Research experimentally achieved an incredible density of information storage. One bit of information, researchers were able to record only 12 atoms, while existing technology for storage of information recording bits used by millions of atoms of the material.
No one has any doubt that in the future electronic filling will be more and more complex, and the functional unit to expand. However, with this new database will be created microelectronic components. Filling phone will be slimmer and energy efficient. So recently, experimentally obtained first transistor size of an atom. At this density element base, the processors will be like pinheads. And, despite the fact that the performance can increase significantly their consumption will be much lower than currently existing processors.
With high probability, not just a smart phone of the future will require enormous computing power. The internal architecture of subscriber units will change. Think about it, now modern communicators resemble the Swiss knives with a thousand blades. You’ve probably seen these on the shelves: the clumsy devices with built-spoons, forks, corkscrew, screwdriver, nail scissors and even a bunch of kinds of functions. In these devices, there are adaptations for all occasions, so only use these devices are equally uncomfortable.
The telecommunications industry has found a way out of this situation — cloud computing. Well, tell me, why build a phone powerful video processor and a large array of memory required for the processing of video in high definition … Treat it can and in the cloud, and then using a wireless broadband data already in high quality transfer to a smartphone, we can similarly come with sound and applied applications. Everything that is because of the technology is a smartphone in the future is likely to move to the cloud. There will be organized clusters of service specific functions of smartphones and communicators of the future. In the clouds will be placed all kinds of software, files, storage, postal and other services.
However, software from the cloud no surprise, in some companies, office software is already used from the cloud. And the day is near when the cloud can take even the operating system. And then the same device can run on any "OSes" (if, of course, remain in the form we are used to). That is, the smartphone user to access, such as Apple iOS on Android or back enough to press a button. Proof of this Chinese clone of the Nokia N9, which is already capable of working with family operating systems: MeeGo, iOS 5.0, HTC Sense, Windows Phone 7, BlackBerry, Samsung TouchWiz 3.0 and Symbian Anna.
Of course, for heavy applications or the operating system of the cloud will require wide channels of wireless data. But, as shown by tests, data rates, with new high-speed technologies — for example, LTE — close to being what we are used to at home, using a wired. Even today, new technologies are not tied to a specific frequency band, and use a wide range. For LTE technology is able to operate in several frequency ranges from 700 MHz to 3.5 GHz. However, with high probability there will be new data technology, bringing together all the existing. For example, will be developed, which was predicted in the mid XX century by Claude Shannon, the ability to transmit information using additional component of electromagnetic waves. This makes it possible to increase the number of transmission channels on the same frequency. As a result, the flow rate data at the same frequency may be increased in order.
In the near future, the smartphone will be selected only on the external parameters: color, shape, weight and so on, and all the "smart filling" will "lie" in the cloud. And as aptly noted by one of the bloggers’ …All information will be stored on servers, including software. Actually, the device will simply be the console to access your information on the server. The concept of memory cards disappear, disappear communication standard concepts, the concept of connection through the Internet, telephone lines, bluetooth, etc. vayfay disappear … ". Working with cloud services will significantly reduce energy consumption smartphones of the future.
World for themselves
In the near future, will change
not only the appearance of communication devices, but the pattern of their use. The smartphone of the future will help the person to interact not only with other people but also with the outside world. The smartphone of the future will be self-connect and re-adjust for us all sorts of electronic devices. For example, when we sat down in the chair airplane or car, it adjusts to fit our interests monitor built into the back of the chair vperedistoyaschego and interactive entertainment system. If you got it home, a smartphone can be a universal remote control for home appliances. Thanks to all sorts of sensors, sensor and a highly personal video cameras will be the basis for a range of new services. For example, the built-in gas analyzers, sensors, radiation, etc. can transmit information in a single data center, and the man in return will receive a certificate about how secure his environment and, if necessary, a warning of the possible danger. Highly integrated smartphone future in the world will allow the holder did not think about the need to recharge the device. Since, on the one hand, the level of consumption in the future smartphones will be extremely low, on the other hand, the devices will be fueled by sunlight, "junk" radiation appliances, non-contact charging close to the stationary electronic devices. That is, we can say that the era of wired chargers coming to an end.
