Google’s new Pixel smartphone has ten build-in sensors, making it the current mobile phone with the greatest amount of sensors. Furthermore, although it is no longer on sale, the Samsung Note 7 also featured the same amount of sensors, and both the iPhone 7 and the HTC 10 have seven sensors.
These sensors include proximity sensors, gyrometers, accelerometers, magnetometers, fingerprint sensors, barometers, hall effect sensors, advanced x-axis haptics, light sensors, heartbeat sensors, iris identification, digital compasses, force sensors and gesture sensors.
Even though it could be said that consumers have absolutely no idea what the majority of the sensors are used for, these sensors have already enabled mobile phone functions to evolve to an unprecedented state. One could even say that they are becoming closer and closer the perceptual abilities of actual people.
Statistics indicate that every two years, the amount of sensors on smart phones will grow by 80%; therefore, four years in the future mobile phones will be more than twice as smart as the smartphones of today. Consequently, all of us can anticipate the level of intelligence that smartphones will have attained in a few years.
It is possible that they will begin to actively remind you of things in your everyday life, for example it will tell you to be careful of cars when crossing the road, to bring an umbrella when you go out the door, and even tell you if you drop your wallet.
Now that’s smart!
