And Android-based mobile and wearable devices will play a big role in all of this.
Android wearable devices will become more frequent in the future. You will most probably be wearing multiple Android devices at any given time. These can range from communication and display devices like phones or gadgets that you wear like watches. Your glasses will become a tool for augmented and virtual reality apps.

Online videos gradually increased in quality and Android phones able to record such videos were in high demand. But in the future, we will be seeing images and video content of even greater size and quality. Android phones of the future will be recording and playing videos of 6K or even 8K. Your mobiles will be connecting to your TV at home to show this higher resolution content on bigger displays. Your mobile will become stronger than the PCs of today and the definition of HD will change from 2K to 8K pretty soon in the future.
