Latest Rumours about Mobile Industry

The mobile industry has gone from strength to strength in the last few years and now it seems like there’s always something new and interesting appearing in this platform.


That’s why we’ve scoured the web for the latest rumours that are floating around in an attempt to gauge what could be happening next for the mobile industry.
More Wearable Tech
To start things off, with the planned launch of the Apple smart watch and the popularity of the Android watches it seems that the current plan for many mobile developers is to focus more on wearable tech.

Although Android wearables are currently leading the pack in terms of affordability, according to a few internet sources it seems that Apple could be planning a cheaper version of their watch. Currently, the Apple smart watch is set to sell for between £299 and £13,500 depending on the model that you pick up.
It’s a price range that not everyone can afford or if they can it’s difficult to come up with a reason for spending nearly £300 on a watch that for now is purely for aesthetic use. If Apple were to lower this they could carve out a large corner of the market.
New iPhone Camera
But it’s not just cheaper wearable tech, apparently Apple are planning to release their iPhone 7 phone with a camera that’s on par with a professional DSLR.
Through a partnership with Sony, Apples new phone, which is set to launch in 2016, will come with built in dual 3D cameras. This is a massive step up for the company as their iPhone 6 currently only has a less than impressive 8-mega pixel camera to use.
Sony Launching New Device
Not to focus completely on Apple we have some news from their partner Sony as it seems they could be launching a new device to their users. The new phone, dubbed the Sony Cosmos, this device will replace the Xperia C3 and it will apparently play up to the popularity of ‘selfies’ by making it easier for its users to take photographs of themselves.
Little is known about this mysterious device, but what we do know so far is that it will have an Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, it will come with a MediaTek processor and it will probably be within the mid to modest price range.
Nintendo Taking the Mobile Plunge?
But by far the hottest rumour floating around the mobile industry is that popular game developer Nintendo are looking into porting some of their titles over to phones through official mobile compatible apps.
Currently, the only way you can play classic Nintendo games on your phone is through an emulator that either takes up tons of memory or is a tad clunky and difficult to use.
If they were to port classic games over in apps that have been designed for mobiles Nintendo would have a licence to print money. In fact, when we told the owner of PgBingo he said that if they brought Mario games to a smartphone he and his friends would never stop playing them.
Although little is known about their current plan, the only thing we can say for certain is that Nintendo are looking into licencing out their Mario, Pokémon and Zelda franchises to mobiles.
Obviously all of these developments are rumours and hypothetical changes that we came up with, but they are based on current changes in the mobile industry. Whether they play out is another thing entirely, at any rate it definitely will be interesting to see which of our rumours will turn out to be correct.
