The smartphone market evolved in a big way in 2011 and some new interesting trends can be witnessed after observing them closely. The first major trend was the use of dual cores and shifting to two cores was announced in January 2011 in CES. This has really helped to improve the performance of the smart phones and as a result of it, many features have been added in the future.
The visibility factor became very important as smartphones were being launched with larger screens. Apple was the first to bring out an iPhone with 3.5 inches screen and people were more than happy in using it. Later on, it was found that most of the middle level smartphones have a screen size of more than 4 to 4.5 inches.
Another interesting factor is the addition of more G. First, it was 3G and now, most of these smartphones are coming with 4G being added into it.
