The year has flown by so fast, and it is amazing how the tech world has grown tremendously.
2019 has been indeed a tech-full year for many of us and we would love to share with you our top 3 list for the year!
Probably one of the most advanced and useful technologies that were developed by telecoms trade body, the Global System Mobile Association (GSMA) this year functioning to enable remote SIM provisioning of almost any mobile device.
Allowing users to use only one mobile phone and one physical SIM card while accessing access data from an eSIM without needing to physically remove it each time. It involves a SIM card chip being embedded into your device with the ability to switch between different SIM card information when needed.

One huge advantage of the eSIM is that it enables its users to change their carriers remotely without having the need to buy a new sim card. The whole idea of eSIM is for ease of travel. Keeping your long-term physical sim in the tray whilst using a second “SIM” when in a new country. Essentially, switching between your mobile providers with ease. Very ideal for people who frequently travel for leisure or business.

SAMSUNG GALAXY FOLD
Foldable phones, and what a major upgrade! The 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display can snap shut to a standard mobile phone size that would be able to fit into your pocket. When you snap the phone open, the Galaxy Fold opens to a 180-degree position. The size of this Galaxy Fold is said to be approximately smaller than your regular iPad minis. The phone comes with a protective layer, which is not meant to be removed as it acts as a screen protector for your phone.
Samsung proudly mentioned that its new baby can withstand almost 200,000 folds without causing any impact on the Infinity Flex display. Did we mention that the device has a total of SIX cameras?! On the back of the Samsung Galaxy Fold is a triple-camera system and another two on the inside about the 7.3-inch AMOLED display following one selfie camera on the front part of the device.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold is indeed something special as it is the first foldable phone in the United States! Many companies have been trying to launch something like this in a long time, however never made it. The Samsung Galaxy Fold opens smoothly like a book – this was achieved by Samsung engineering a sophisticated hinge with multiple interlocking gears; however it is created in a hidden enclosure to achieve a seamless and elegant look!
What do you think of the Samsung Galaxy Fold? Is it something that you would consider investing it?
HUAWEI HARMONY OS
Mid this year, Huawei has taken a step above by launching its own OS. Launched as HarmonyOS (also known as Hongmeng OS), it is an independent operating software that works across all devices. Huawei says that it has over 500 million registered users and 910,000 application developers on its platform.
This new creation by Huawei was made as a precaution for the company itself should they lose access to Google’s Android software. HarmonyOS is not an alternative, said Huawei’s Senior Manager of EMUI Product Marketing, James Lu to Business Insider; it is an operating software (OS) on a completely different level – and can support all smart devices.
The main idea behind the OS is to create seamless connectivity between all smart devices a user owns regardless of the make and brand of the said smart device. The HarmonyOS is said to be able to connect to speakers, laptops, phones, and even other sensors that have the right support system!
The Harmony OS is a microkernel-based full-scene distributed OS developed by Huawei and a set of other operating systems mainly oriented to the future 5G leading era of the internet. This was created mainly to support full scene across multiple devices and platforms, with the ability to address low potential, and high-security challenges. Its original intention of this development was to deal with the future era of full scene wisdom which the current OS system can no longer meet the needs of the future.
