2021年的手机,会有什么新鲜性能?

Aaron Pressman 2020年12月28日
无论是手机设计、无线调制解调器研发、还是网络设备方面都需要持续改进。

智能手机的迭代速度并没有随着疫情发展而变缓,纵观今年手机界,最受欢迎的性能莫过于5G兼容。部分测评人员发现,iPhone12在合适条件下的下载速度几乎可达每秒3GB。那么2021年最棒的手机又会有哪些性能呢?

更耐用、更便宜的折叠屏

今年三星Galaxy Z fold 2以及摩托罗拉重新推出的Razr款折叠手机终于在升级过后变得更为耐用,在使用数月后也不会再出现显示屏开裂或脱落的情况。折叠屏手机目前整体价位在1500至2000美元之间,但三星移动通信业务负责人TM罗在其博文中暗示21年这些机型会降价,届时可折叠产品会变得更加“亲民”。据手机测评人士意见,三星和摩托罗拉的这两款机型除了价格略贵外,其他各方的表现都足以在一众手机中拔得头筹。

当然,仍有一些消费者认为折叠屏太厚了。针对此问题,有消息显示LG会在2021上半年推出一款类属于早前滚动屏电视一样的薄型滚动屏手机,CCS Insight研究主管本•伍德就此消息表达了自己的兴奋之情,称他很期待见到一部“像千年前纸莎草卷轴”那样的手机。

变焦相机升级

要想在智能手机里内置高性能变焦镜头其实并不容易。理论而言,更高的放大率也就意味着更远更长的内置镜头距离。往年三星Galaxy S20 Ultra等机型采用的技巧为“潜望镜技术”,即侧边摄像头搭配后置镜。有消息流传称苹果在明年也会将潜望镜技术用于新iPhone。

更好的5G

今年本应是5G元年,但就现时形式来看,苹果、三星等手机开发商跑在前面实现了设备兼容目标,但其他一些无线运营商却落在了后面。网络测速商普遍发现,目前已普及的5G波段并不比4G快多少。疫情减缓了网络升级工作,部分运营商无法拿到无线电波许可证,因而也难以提供更快的5G网。预计明年的5G建设进程将会加快,美国联邦通信委员会也正在拍卖一些额外的5G波段。

威瑞森(Verizon)技术部门高级副总裁亚当•科普表示,排去时间因素,5G最终可以达到每秒10千兆左右的“巅峰”速度,足以在几秒内把整个11季《英国烘焙秀》(Great British Baking Show)从Netflix下载到手机上。然而他认为这还需要好几年时间,无论是手机设计、无线调制解调器研发、还是网络设备方面都需要持续改进,他指出:“这三者必须携手并进。”

超宽带芯片

在过去的两年中,苹果在iPhone上增加了一种超宽带芯片,该芯片能使两部iPhone之间更快地识别对方、更快地实现文件传输。这项技术非常精确,可以缩短至厘米以内。另外,搭载超宽带芯片的手机也可以作为车钥匙使用,宝马2021年5系轿车将会是首批适用车型。

Counterpoint研究所分析师尼尔•沙阿指出,大量搭载超宽带芯片的手机及其他电子设备会在2021年涌现,以此“驱动不同设备之间的互动生态系统”。无论是车库大门,还是钱包、钥匙都可以与手机实现互动,从此用户便无需担忧自己的“健忘症”,多人AR游戏体验感也会大大提升。(财富中文网)

Despite the pandemic, phonemakers continued cranking out new models in 2020. The most popular new feature added this year was compatibility with superfast 5G networks. Some reviewers found the new iPhone 12 reaching download speeds of almost 3GB per second under the right conditions. So what’s in store for the best phones in 2021?

Folding phones evolve and get cheaper

In 2020, folding phones like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 and Motorola’s revived Razr finally proved that manufacturers could make displays that folded without cracking or peeling after just a few months of use. But those phones also cost $1,500 to $2,000. TM Roh, head of Samsung’s mobile communications business, hinted at lower prices coming next year, writing in a recent blog post that its foldable lineup in 2021 will be “more accessible to everyone.” Some reviewers have said the Z Fold2 was the best phone of the year despite being too expensive for most people.

And while some consumers find the folding phones too thick, rumors suggest LG will unveil a phone with a thin scrolling screen in the first half of 2021. LG already has a TV with a rollable screen, Ben Wood, chief of research at CCS Insight, notes. He’s says he’s excited for phones “a bit like papyrus scrolls used millennia ago.”

Cameras zoom in

It’s hard to pack a high-powered zoom lens into a smartphone because increasing the magnification comes from increasing the physical distance separating elements of the lens. A few models over the past year, like Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra, debuted a trick to fit a longer lens into a thinner phone by placing it sideways and using a mirror to capture the image, periscope style. Rumors out of Asia suggest Apple is looking at the periscope technology for future iPhones, possibly as soon as next year.

5G gets better

This year was supposed to be the year of 5G, but while phonemakers like Apple and Samsung did their part in developing compatible devices, the wireless carriers lagged behind. Phone-speed testing firms generally found the most widely available types of 5G weren’t much faster than 4G. That’s because the pandemic slowed some network improvements, and some carriers are still in need of additional airwave licenses to create enough capacity to offer faster 5G. Construction should pick up next year, and the Federal Communications Commission is currently auctioning off some additional airwaves perfect for 5G.

Ultimately, though not next year, 5G could reach ludicrous speeds of 10 gigabits per second, says Adam Koeppe, Verizon’s senior vice president for technology. That’s fast enough to download all 11 seasons of the Great British Baking Show from Netflix onto a phone in a few seconds. But that’s still a few years off, as phone designs, wireless modems, and network gear all need to improve. “Those three groups have to work hand in hand to evolve together,” he says.

Ultra-wideband opens more than just car doors

For the past two years, Apple has added an ultra-wideband chip to its phones as a way for iPhones to recognize each other more quickly for swapping files. The technology is so precise it can calculate locations with an accuracy of centimeters. BMW’s 2021 5 Series sedans are among the first cars to use ultra-wideband so owners can use their phones as a key.

But many more phones and devices will get ultra-wideband chips in 2021, says Counterpoint Research analyst Neil Shah, “to drive an ecosystem of interactions between different gadgets.” Expect automatic garage door openers, augmented reality games that work for multiple players at the same time, and tags on your wallet or keys, so they can never get lost between sofa cushions.
