Tech Trends That WON’T Happen in 2021: Environmentally Friendly 5G, Explainable AI, Mainstream Virtual Reality, and Wi-Fi 6E, to Name a Few

As 2020 finally winds down, predictions abound on the technology advancements and innovations expected in the year ahead. However, several highly anticipated advancements, including environmentally friendly 5G, explainable Artificial Intelligence (AI), mainstream Virtual Reality (AR), and ubiquitous Wi-Fi 6E, will NOT happen in 2021, says ABI Research.

In its new whitepaper, 68 Technology Trends That Will Shape 2021: Predictions for What Will and Will Not Happen in The Year Ahead, ABI Research’s analysts identify 37 trends that will shape the technology market and 31 others that, although attracting huge amounts of speculation and commentary, are less likely to move the needle over the next twelve months. As Stuart Carlaw, Chief Research Officer points out, “For success in 2021, one must understand fundamental trends early, and take a view on those trends that are buoyed by hyperbole and those that are sure to be uncomfortable realities. Now is the time to double down on the right technology investment.”

Qualcomm: Android phones to get 'lucky number' Snapdragon 888 chip

BBC News

It says the Snapdragon 888 will let handsets take high-resolution photos faster than before and perform AI-related tasks more efficiently. Devices powered by the chip should be on sale by March. If the firm had followed its previous naming convention, it would have been numbered the 875. One expert suggested the decision had significance.

"It may point to Qualcomm extending an olive branch to those in the industry caught up in the ongoing China-US trade war," suggested Deborah Petrara from ABI Research. "888 is regarded by the Chinese as a symbol of fortune and prosperity, which will also undoubtedly chime well with Qualcomm's expectations of success."
