AI is all over the place at the moment… as far as technology goes. It’s the current buzzword that is being used. Many smartphone OEMs have included plenty of AI features in their devices. The same goes for Huawei, who believes that AI smartphones will account for 90% of the market by 2030.

This was said by Huawei’s Executive Director and Chairman of the ICT Infrastructure Business Management Committee, Wang Tao. He said it during the keynote speech in Shanghai yesterday.

Huawei believes AI smartphones will take 90% of the market by 2030

He believes that AI-powered smartphones will account for 11% of shipments this year. That could reach the 90% level by 2030, though. He essentially sees the integration of LLMs and AI features becoming a standard for the industry.

Tao said the following: “We will soon see a huge boost to traffic from AI. At the same time, 5G-A networks will be able to provide higher speeds, lower latency, and greater capacity to meet the network demands of the AI ​​era”.

Many smartphones already offer such features and are considered ‘AI smartphones’. Apple joined the fray with the company’s iOS 18 announcement recently. Well, users still don’t have access to all that, at least not in the stable form. Still, they’ll get access in a couple of months.

Companies will be able to run more and more AI tasks locally

When it comes to AI features, your phones need to talk to the server that runs larger LLMs. So for some processes, that is necessary. Companies are expected to be able to do more and more such tasks on smartphones, natively, though. LLMs will be getting more efficient, and processors more powerful and capable in the AI sense.

So, it seems like the AI buzzword is here to stay. Companies likely won’t stop using it, though they may reshape it. Apple, for example, avoided using ‘AI’, and simply calls its features ‘Apple Intelligence’.
