“By then, the smartphone as we know it today will certainly no longer be the most common interface,” Lundmark said. “A lot of these things will be integrated directly into our body,” he added.
Lundmark didn’t give many details on exactly how or what it will look like, but he went on to say that by 2030 there will be a “digital twin of everything”, which will require “enormous resources of calculation”.
The report mentions that companies have already started to invest heavily in 6G.
Some of the biggest tech giants in the world, such as Qualcomm, Apple, Google and LG, want to participate and even collaborate on this next-gen technology.
