8 ways Android smartphones and iPhones may change in the year 2023

In recent years, smartphones have become one of the most popular gadgets. It is among the top selling items in the biggest online festive sales on Amazon, Flipkart and other platforms. Among the reasons for the popularity of smartphones is also how these devices have constantly evolved/improved/improved. Few devices have seen such a jump as smartphones. Here we take a look at the crystal and bring you eight ways your phones will change in 2023.

5G to make it more affordable

5G phones will become more affordable. Currently, the Indian brand Lava offers the cheapest 5G phone. Samsung, Xiaomi, Realme and others are also likely to launch 5G phones under Rs 12,000 this year. With Airtel and Reliance Jio all but confirming that they will not charge a premium for 5G services, the popularity of 5G phones will only grow. Reports claim that shipments of 5G phones may cross 100 million in India this year.

200MP camera

200MP camera phones debuted in 2022. By 2023, they are expected to become commonplace. The first phone to launch with a 200MP sensor in 2023 is the Redmi Note 12 series. The Samsung Galaxy S23 series phones are also widely speculated to have a 200MP camera sensor. Although it is likely that it could be on the Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Ultra devices. We will see many more devices with these devices in the year

A 48MP camera sensor could be part of all iPhones in 2023

Apple made a big change to the camera in 2022, increasing the sensor to 48 MP. However, the jump is limited to the iPhone 14 Pro range. All four 2023 iPhones are likely to get at least a 48MP sensor. Dynamic Island may also come in all 2023 iPhones.

Folding phones that go beyond ‘concept phones’

The Samsung Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Flip phones have gone through a nascent stage. They no longer just offer a unique form factor, but are considered powerful phones that are productivity engines (thanks to the Microsoft partnership). Thanks to the duo, foldable phones seem to be much more feasible and popular. In 2023, perhaps more foldable phones will move beyond concept. Google has been widely speculated to launch the Pixel Fold. Foldable phones from Oppo and Vivo may also hit global markets.

Retractable camera

Techno launches its premium line of Phantom retractable cameras. Yes, pop-up cameras are certainly not a new trend, but they definitely look a lot more refined and usable. The pop-out camera on the Techno Phantom series phone sees the camera lens physically pop out of the phone’s body. But by no means does it look delicate or with a flimsy pop-up mechanism that can fail after a while. If the Phantom succeeds/engages, it’s likely we’ll see more phones with pop-up or retractable cameras this year. It brings some new design element to Android phones.

16 GB of RAM

As of 2020, there are phones with 12GB RAM; Galaxy S20 series, OnePlus 8 series. 2023 flagship Android phones likely to come with 16GB of RAM. Top phones in the OnePlus 11, iQoo 11, Vivo X90 and Samsung Galaxy S23 range boast 16GB of RAM.

Fast charging 200W

200W fast charging made its way to Android phones last year. This year, you may see it make its way to more affordable Android phones. A promise to charge smartphones up to 60% in 10 minutes may come with more Android phones. As far as iPhone users are concerned, it is highly unlikely that Apple will break the 30-watt mark in 2023.

​Snapdragon 8 Gen 2: “Favorite” flagship chipset of the first 6 months of 2023

All flagship phones to be launched in the first half of 2023 will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, the current most powerful Android processor. Phones that will launch with the processor in the first three months include the OnePlus 11 series, the iQOO 11 and the Samsung Galaxy S23. Of these, the iQOO 11 series will be the first to launch with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset in India (January 11).
