To conclude, 5G mobile technology is used in fields of 3D gaming, augmented reality and data security, as well as to enhance speed, functionality and add new features to the application.
Trend #4 – The Internet of Things
This technology is a system with ability to control interrelated computing devices (sensors, smartphones, wearables, etc.), connected to the internet via mobile applications.
When the devices connect with automated systems, they can gather information, analyze it and create a necessary action. A good example is the “smart home” concept.
Now the majority of technology giants actively develop and invest in IoT applications. Generally, investment into the Internet of Things is likely to reach $120 billion in 2020.
