Top 40 Mobile Innovations in May

From Seamless Gamer Smartphones to Digital Detox Phone Cases

— May 29, 2021 — Tech
The May 2021 mobile trends tended toward innovations in smartphone technology, app launches, and smartphone accessories. These new products and services enhance the already fast-moving mobile industry, especially in relation to the future of mobile gaming.

One example of this emerging trend is the Sony Xperia 1 III smartphone, which features a high-performance CinemaWide HDR OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The substantial hardware upgrades equip this device to effectively handle the rigors of mobile gaming while offering a stunning visual experience for movies and shows.

Diverging from the mania surrounding mobile technology, Ostrichpillow's Digital Detox Phone Case allows mobile users to disconnect from their devices in order to rest and recharge. The sleek case hosts a comfortable and secure home for mobile devices, empowering users to mindfully enjoy time away from digital screens.
