Despite the fact that other major countries haven’t completed their 4G rollout yet, Samsung claims that its new technology, 5G or mmWave Mobile Technology is 100 times much faster compared to existing 4G network. This, according to the Korean company, will allow users to download full-length movies in less than one second.
Samsung said in a blog post: 5G networks could allow “a wide range of services such as 3D movies and games, real-time streaming of ultra high-definition content, and remote medical services.”
Although scientists believed that high-frequency wavebands are not suitable for long-range communications required by mobile phones, Samsung claims its new technology will work over distances up to 2km.
“Samsung’s new adaptive array transceiver technology has proved itself as a successful solution,” the company claims. “It transmits data in the millimeter-wave band at a frequency of 28 GHz at a speed of up to 1.056 Gbps to a distance of up to 2 kilometers.”
The new, exciting technology is expected to be rolled-out commercially after 2020.
