Slide 1 - Smartphone tech to expect in 2015

Smartphone technology has come a long way but many feel that there's little innovation happening at the moment. With flagships all bringing more or less the same phone in different designs, the lower end device segment is where the battle lies. Nevertheless, while the lack of differentiating elements persists, there's no denying the fact that technology has come a long way in 2014. As a result, we may see some exciting smartphone tech in 2015.

Super fast auto-focus cameras...

Sony is going to bring a 192 point phase detect auto focus system to your phone in 2015. The company provides the sensors for most smartphone cameras today and it has achieved this feature at the sensor level. This is the same as what DSLRs use today and should be available by the second half of the year.

Less time to charge more...

Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 feature has actually made an appearance this year itself. The Motorola Moto MaxxSamsung Galaxy Note 4 and Xperia Z3 all use this for their fast charging feature. It should come to the mainstream next year, especially considering that most Qualcomm chipsets have the feature available.

Curved and ready...

The LG G Flex and Samsung Galaxy Round were two of the first curved screen smartphones. Samsung took the effort a step further this year, with the Galaxy Note Edge. We expect more such initiatives next year.

Seriously, who needs them? The Sharp Aquos Crystal is one of the first bezel-less smartphones, while Xiaomi's Mi5 and some other phones have also been rumoured to have bezel-less designs.

More computing power...

Qualcomm's latest flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 810, is a 64-bit octa-core chipset. In addition, Qualcomm has the Snapdragon 410 and 615, which are priced lower and offer 64-bit computing. There are already phones like the Yu Yureka and HTC Desire 820, which run on these and we can expect many such devices next year.

More memory, better memory...

A company called Crossbar has been working on what is known as Resistive RAM. This is a high capacity, high performance RAM chip, which doesn't only offer more memory, but uses less power. This means that not only will the amount of RAM increase, your phone will also take less power out of the battery to access it. This means better RAM and better battery life for your phone.
