    Samsung devices have always been in the forefront when it comes to utilising latest connectivity features. Samsung recently broke records by demonstrating ultra-fast 4.6Gbps data transfer through 60GHz Wi-Fi 802.11ad technology and now, Samsung has released a video explaining the importance of 5G networks. Apart from achieving data transfer speeds of up to 7.5Gbps, 5G networks can also handle many more devices and offer much wider bandwidth than what is currently possible with 4G networks. With the advent of wearable devices and Internet of Things (IoT), millions of new devices will be added to mobile networks each day.

    In this video, engineers from Samsung explain how they created a testbed system for 5G data transfer technology in 2012. They were able to successfully transfer data at a rate of 1Gbps to a car moving with a speed of 100 km/h. Apparently, they verified the possibility to use mmWave frequency bands for building 5G mobile communication networks. They are planning to flaunt the technology by 2018, just in time for the Pyeong Chang Winter Olympics. Samsung says that people using devices with 5G connectivity will be able to see 3D images of sports through holograms, provided that such displays be available at that time. Currently, Samsung is the only player who is researching and developing this technology but it needs other players for it to make a worldwide standard.
