Choose your next iPhone wisely; get one that will get you to the five year limit, then buy one more so you’ll have an iPhone that will last through Armageddon and into whatever technology Samsung invents next.
We’ll all be using flying cars in five years, probably solar and lunar powered. Samsung’s boss, DJ Koh, the same guy who said Galaxy Fold would be the next insanely great thing before it folded, says 5G technology will change the entire technology industry.
You’ll be wearing 5G connectivity instead of carrying an iPhone around in your pocket. Yes, that’s the same Koh who admitted the Galaxy Fold’s fold was embarrassing. Yet, Samsung allowed Koh back on the streets to throw some shade on one of its biggest customers.
Maybe something got lost in the translation but future Galaxy Folds really need to fold up tiny to become wearables, but what do I know, right? The guy running Samsung’s design team, Kang Yun-Je says smartphones are dead in five years.
Replaced by what? Wearables.
In five years or so, people will not even realize they are wearing screens
Implants? Glasses? Suppositories?
Whatever they are, the screen needs to be somewhat visible, no? Otherwise, what’s the point? Let’s pay close attention to the latest Samsung executive to make a prediction.
We must think rather than smartphones, we must think smart devices. Smartphones may decline but new devices will emerge
Oh, may decline. As in, maybe. As in, could. As in, possible.
What about the Galaxy Fold? Will it return as a chewable? As glasses? A helmet maybe? Earbuds? What has Samsung found in the folded Fold after more rigorous testing?
Issues we didn’t even think about
When Apple releases a foldable iPhone or iPad mini, then you’ll know they’re ready for primetime. As to wearables, the industry leader is… insert drumroll here… Apple. Not Samsung. I suspect most of us will worry more about the future of tech at some point in the future rather than take Samsung’s word for what will happen.
