VERDICT: 2022 was an incredible year for mobile technology, with Apple, Samsung, Google and the rest putting their best foot forward with great smartphones, tablets, smartwatches and wireless headphones.
2023 promises to be even better with a series of achievements around the world. We will see different form factors become mainstream and Apple will take a giant leap into a new reality. As for Apple, we’re pretty sure the iPhone 15 will bring the biggest changes to the lineup in years. On the gaming front, we might see one of the best consoles of all time finally get a sequel.
Google Pixel Fold
Google has done a lot of work to make Android more resilient to foldables and larger displays, but the Pixel line hasn’t yet felt those benefits. That should change in 2023, when Google will launch the Pixel Fold after years of rumors.
Recent render leaks have suggested a large 5.7-inch lid screen that opens up to a 7.69-inch tablet display. The Tensor G2 will apparently do the heavy lifting, while the trademark Pixel camera band will feature three snappers. We’re excited about the pure Android experience on a foldable display, and it could be a turning point for the industry.
Big changes in iPhone 15
The iPhone lineup could see its biggest shakeup in years. USB-C should eventually replace the Lightning port on the iPhone 15, ahead of the EU’s common charger regulations in 2024. Also, it looks like the iPhone 15 (at least the Pro model) will get a periscope camera for the first time for proper lossless zoom. . Apple could also change the design a bit, as the look of the iPhone 14 is now three generations old. It’s also possible that you’ll see a rugged iPhone 15 Ultra alongside the new Apple Watch Ultra.
Apple VR/AR headset
It is often said that the tech industry only truly matures when Apple enters the country. This was true for smartwatches, MP3 players and tablets, and in 2023 we may be able to add AR/VR headsets to the list. The first-generation mixed reality product is one of tech’s worst-kept secrets, and we’re excited to see how it unfolds this year. How much will it depend on the power of the iPhone? How long will the battery life last? What is the experience Apple chooses to showcase that sets it apart from Mark Zuckerberg’s Metaverse?
Nintendo Switch 2
It’s more of a hope than a prediction, but we’re excited about the prospects for the Nintendo Switch 2 in 2023. The 2017 model is starting to look its age, and sales figures suggest that most of the people who were going to buy it have bought. one. It’s time to update that chipset, and it’s time to up the resolution to 4K, at least in TV mode. Hopefully this will happen during The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
