Germany-based company Deutsche Telekom showcased their AI smartphone concept that fully runs on AI at the MWC 2024 in Barcelona. The phone doesn’t consist of any apps; rather, it consists of a generative interface developed in collaboration with Qualcomm and Brain.

“I can tell you that in 5–10 years from now, nobody from us will use apps anymore,” said the company’s CEO Tim Hoettges in a keynote presentation at the MWC 2024.

Traditionally, users needed to open an app and do multiple clicks in order to complete a task, but with the new AI smartphone, they only need to give voice input commands to get things done.

How Does the AI Smartphone Work?

The AI smartphone consists of an AI-powered assistant that replaces the apps and completes tasks based on your voice commands. The AI is located in the cloud. When you give your voice commands to the AI assistant, the phone generates UI based on your commands, through which you can interact to complete your tasks.

Deutsche Telekom is also showcasing another version of the AI smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. Instead of the cloud, the AI processing is done on the device. This makes AI more fast and efficient.

“The showcased product reflects Deutsche Telekom’s belief that multi- and crossmodal large language models will soon become integral to devices, enhancing and simplifying the lives of its customers,” said Deutsche Telekom in a presentation.

What you can do with the AI smartphone 

With the AI smartphone, you can ask the AI assistant to book flight tickets, buy products from online stores such as Amazon, share pictures with your contacts, and do other various tasks, including creating photos, creating slideshows, drafting documents, posting to social media, and more.


Deutsche Telekom’s AI smartphone is currently only a concept phone, and we don’t know whether it will be publicly released or not. The smartphone is great for doing things that require opening a lot of apps and clicking on multiple buttons. But it might not be that useful for doing simple tasks like opening a message or checking mail, and many users might not be comfortable using their smartphones without using apps. So the future of such AI smartphones still remains uncertain.
