(The Hosting News) – Many consumers are just now getting around to using 4G – but the next component could already be well on its way.
According to a report from The New York Times on Monday, Samsung has claimed a “key breakthrough” in the move towards 5G connectivity.
New technology could make transmitting data as much as “several hundred times faster” – something that some would consider jaw-dropping.
Samsung described the invention as “the world’s first adaptive array transceiver technology operating in the millimeter-wave Ka bands for cellular communications” via its blog.
“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 adaptive array transceiver technology, using 64 antenna elements, can be a viable solution for overcoming the radio propagation loss at millimeter-wave bands, much higher than the conventional frequency bands ranging from several hundred MHz to several GHz,” stated the company.
However, any commercialization of the 5G Samsung’s working on won’t be available until 2020 – so sorry, you guys will just have to wait.
