Smartphone technology is constantly evolving, with new features and capabilities being frequently introduced. 2013 was a big year for personal tech, planting the seeds for high-resolution screens, curved displays, and wearables like smartwatches and fitness trackers. These obvious trends will make it big this year, but there is a more subtle, yet bigger revolution taking shape. And it has everything to do with how we interact with our devices.

This technology, which has been available only on select flagship devices until now, will become more commonplace in 2014. Read on for a lowdown on the biggest technology trends, coming soon to a smartphone near you.
