As per the Survey by Ericsson owned ConsumerLab, Smartphones will be outdated within next five years and it will be replaced by artificial intelligence.
More than half of the participants in the survey thought Mobile Technology will be redundant by 2021 as artificial intelligence starts enabling interaction with objects without the need for a phone or tablet.
A Smartphone in our hand is not always practical, For example, you can't have one when you are driving or cooking.
And there are many situations where display screens are not so good. Therefore, one in two think that smartphones will belong to the past within five years,” Ericsson ConsumerLab’s Rebecka Cedering Angstrom was quoted as saying.
The research lab surveyed 100,000 people across Sweden and 39 other countries.
With around 1.9 billion smartphone users globally, this means ConsumerLab covered just 0.0052 per cent of active users for its study.
