More importantly, the advent of the 5G era will lead to a change in people’s lifestyle and work. IDC talks about the concept of V2E (Voice to Everything), which will cover a wide range of products, which will lead to the third Internet revolution in China – the “era of voice Internet.” IDC predicts that 100 million people in China will use the voice interaction feature in 2020.
According to IDC’s forecast, more than 40% of users in 2020 will use more than one 5G device at home. More than 30% of children aged 1 to 14 will begin to use smartphones and other 5G devices more actively next year.
A revolution in the automotive industry is also expected. In 2020, more than 80% of car manufacturers plan to collaborate with developing technology companies to develop new automotive systems. They will offer improved features for computing / storing data and so on.
