According to a new study by Swedish telecoms experts Ericsson, smartphones will cease to exist by 2021.

According to a new study by Swedish telecoms experts Ericsson, smartphones will be wiped out by 2021. "A smartphone in the hand, it’s really not that practical," said Rebecka Cedering Ångström from Ericsson ConsumerLab. "For example, not when one is driving a car or cooking. And there are many situations where display screens are not so good. Therefore, one in two think that smartphones will belong to the past within five years,”

'There are many situations where display screens are not so good'

The report, which surveyed 100 000 people in Sweden and 39 other countries, predicts that mobile phones and their screens will be replaced by "artificial intelligence".

"Just imagine watching football and being able to choose from where you want to see the game from different places in the stands, or perhaps even from the pitch. Shopping is also an area where you could [virtually] try on shoes and see how they fit on your own feet."
