Samsung’s new 5G chips are now being mass produced for mobile phones.
Samsung Electronics announced this week that its 5G communication solutions are in mass production to provide the latest and premium smartphones with 5G connectivity.
“Samsung has been an innovator in mobile communication technologies, and we are well-prepared to extend our leadership into 5G”
“Our multi-mode solutions will together enable powerful yet energy-efficient 5G performance along with the network versatility that allows users to stay connected wherever they are.”
Said Inyup Kang, president of System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics.
Faster than its predecessor, 5G technology is the future of mobile networking.
With new developments such as this, 5G technology will be finding its way to a wider range of phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.
5G vs 4G
5G will run on a much higher frequency, this means that users will get a massive speed increase.
With a peak speed of about 20GB per second, 5G is about 20 times faster than 4G. However, this comparison is only based on peak speeds, in day-to-day use, you’re more likely to achieve 100MB per second with 5G, compared to about 10MB per second with 4G
As 5G will utilise an entirely new frequency, there’ll be much less crowding, this’ll free up bandwidth, as a result, 5G will be much faster.
5G is faster, more efficient, and, much newer. Due to this, it would be worth the upgrade when 5G phones become more readily available.
In terms of pricing, we can only guess that the new 5G phones will start off with a high price-point. But prices will lower as 5G becomes more common.
An upgrade to 5G would be a good idea if you’re looking to future-proof yourself. With all the perks of 5G, there’s nothing much to dislike about it.
