Currently, the smartphone is an electronic product that everyone uses and can’t imagine life without it. They are used for general purposes as well as for work and entertainment. Recently, at the World Economic Forum 2022, Nokia President and CEO Pekka Lundmark said that “the smartphone as we know it today will not anymore be the most common interface. Many of these things will be built directly into our bodies.”
As a Nokia executive said, “the physical and digital worlds will grow together”. In effect, users will be more interested in the VR world. They will be able to enter the virtual world with single flipping of a switch or turning a dial.
Just finished a #wef22 panel on #digital with @Google, @IBM, @HPE, @Accenture. Touched on cybersecurity, edge cloud, 6G, Web 3.0., quantum computing… and that's just a taste. Thanks to @nxthompson for moderating. https://t.co/oal2hAni9W pic.twitter.com/1WXRDrxkes

This is mainly conditioned by the fact that 6G will be commercialized in 2030.

At the moment, there is no standard definition for 6G. 5G began rolling out in late 2018 and early 2019. However, there will be real differences between 5G and 6G, and the latter will require a wider range of computing resources, including a network hundreds or even thousands of times faster than 5G.
In the current 5G era, mobile phones are still the most important devices for accessing 5G networks. But as you understand, 6G will provide a faster speed and response time. However, the core technology will rely on quantum mechanics and artificial intelligence.
Once shifting from 5G to 6G, the technology will integrate human senses, such as smell, taste, and touch, into the user experience. As you understand, the world we know will change significantly. By 2030, the technical requirements of 6G networks will require massive computing power.
However, for the final users, the world will become better with the emergence of 6G. “Whether it’s smart cities, farms or factories, and robotics, 6G will take it to the next level. Much of that will be facilitated by 5G-Advanced, the next standard enhancements for 5G.
6G will enable new use cases. “We will connect the physical world to our own human world, thanks to the massive scale deployment of sensors and artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) with digital twin models and real-time synchronous updates. These digital twin models are crucial because they allow us to analyze what’s happening in the physical world, simulate possible outcomes, anticipate needs, and then take productive actions back into the physical world.”
