You won’t be using smartphones in 5 years: Samsung CEO

Times ago Huawei was predicted overtaking Samsung in smartphone sales, if the ban issue is resolved soon, the forecast could come within the next year.

Huawei’s leadership is destined to last only a short time, simply because in five years smartphones will no longer exist. Too bad that, according to the statements of DJ Koh, CEO of Samsung Mobile, it could be a Pyrrhic victory.

This is the philosophy of the Korean executive, according to which even folding smartphones are a transitional technology, destined to last a few years. The future is in wearable devices and in the possibility of transforming any surface into a display.

From car windows to restaurant windows, without forgetting kitchen accessories or appliances, the future could really look like an episode of Star Trek or movies like Minority Report. This will allow us, thanks to the growth of 5G technology and that of IoT devices, to stay connected without having to transport any device, except for wearables, such as watches, bracelets or the same clothes we wear.

In the video below you can discover the vision of Samsung. We leave you with a question: what will happen to privacy, if we have to look at a website on the window or a restaurant on the glass of the taxi? How will the technology overcome these limitations? The comment box is at your disposal.

For companies like Apple or Huawei the shift in technology could be a lose or win game. Everything depends on how these companies adapt the new technology.
