New Delhi: Nokia CEO Pekka Lundmark predicted that smartphones “may no longer be relevant in the next 10 years”. 2030. According to Pekka Lundmark, the reason for this is the advent of new technology. In fact, the CEO of Nokia says that the new technology will Smartphones will be extinct by 2030..

Nokia CEO Pekka Lundmark spoke at World Economic Forum (WEF) Where he said that 6G will arrive by the end of 2030, but it may make smartphones obsolete.

By then, the smartphone as we know it today will no longer be the most common interface. Many of these things will be built directly into our bodies,” said Becca Lundmark. Nokia CEO added that people prefer devices like smart glasses and face-wraps over smartphones.

So what, according to him, will replace smartphones?

Lundmark believes that augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) glasses will become a more widely used interface in 2030.

Elon Musk’s Neuralink Corporationa neurotechnology company developing implants Brain-machine interfaces (BMIs), is actually creating brain-computer interfaces. Last year, Musk shared a video of Pager, a monkey playing “Mind Pong” using embedded chips on both sides of his brain. The nine-year-old Bigger was trained to move the joystick but controlled the racquet simply by thinking of moving his hands.

Commenting on Neuralink, Musk said in April 2021, β€œThe first Neuralink product will enable a person with paralysis to use a smartphone with their mind faster than someone using their thumb. Subsequent versions will be able to convert signals from Neuralinks in the brain to Neuralinks in groups of motor neurons.” / sensory body, allowing, for example, paraplegics to walk again.”

But how does one look with a chip implanted in the head?

“The device is implanted in the skull and charges wirelessly, so you’ll look and feel completely normal,” Musk explained.

About a week ago, Pekka Lundmark claimed that 6G mobile networks will be commercially available by 2030 while speaking at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. He said he didn’t think smartphones would be “the most common interface”.

Telecom operators around the world are building strength in 5G but are also focused on bringing 6G mobile networks to market before 2030.
