Samsung Claims 5G Mobile Breakthrough – Digits – WSJ

Samsung Claims 5G Mobile Breakthrough – Digits – WSJ.

Wall Street Journal’s article on Samsung 5G breakthrough reveals very little details of what a 5G network is. Only reference to bandwidth is the transmission of super-high-definition movies in seconds. Even this is not enough to figure much out.

Another article I found (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22507512) discussed about the actual data-rate of 1 Gbps across a distance of 2 Km (1.2 miles). Frequency of operations is at 28 GHz, mm wave. Target time line for 5G standard is 2020, which is 7 years away..

Well, even 4G is not ubiquitous, so only time will tell what’s next.
