LTE might be all the rage right now, but next generation mobile technology is already in the works. According to Korea's Yonhap News Agency, Samsung has successfully tested its 5G platform, pulling down data at 1Gbps in recent tests. The company apparently needed 64 antenna elements to pull the trick off, but says the technology will be available to customers by 2020 -- matching the European Commission's goal quite nicely. It may not be the fastest 5G test we've seen inrecent months, but we're not going to scoff at progress.
Comment from Smartphonebay.net:
5G mobile data transfer in 2020??? We may expect 5G may come much earlier than the time expected by Samsung. Nowadays, the mobile data transfer technology growing very fast and attracting much more investment than ever before. It is clearly that Samsung only expect a linear growth of the technology level but indeed it is growing exponentially in the real world. We wish to see 5G before the date when Samsung expected. Wish best luck for those scientists working so hard on this subject!!
