South Korea three national mobile carriers introduced the first 5G-enabled smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S-10, across Seoul.
The Asia country South Korea which used to be a 3rd world country like most Africa countries has made huge progress over the years because of leadership and the imagination of their leaders and it is so beautiful to watch.
South Korea has the fastest internet speed in the world and they have also the highest number of smart phone users in the world too.The superfast communications heralded by fifth-generation wireless technology will ultimately underpin everything from toasters to telephones, from electric cars to power grids.
In the same way that 3G enabled widespread mobile web access and 4G made new applications work ranging from social media to Uber, 5G will herald a new level of connectivity, empowered by speed.
One of the mobile carriers, LG U-plus, has collaborated with Chinese tech giant Huawei in deploying 5G base stations at over 10,000 sites.
The system will bring smartphones near-instantaneous connectivity — 20 times faster than existing 4G — allowing users to download entire movies in less than a second.
Huawei, the global leader, has registered 1,529 5G patents, according to data analysis firm IPlytics.
Combined with manufacturers ZTE and Oppo, plus the China Academy of Telecommunications Technology, Chinese entities own a total of 3,400 patents — more than a third of the total, according to the research firm.
“5G is the latest generation of cellular mobile communications. It succeeds the 4G, 3G and 2G systems. 5G performance targets high data rate, reduced latency, energy saving, cost reduction, higher system capacity, and massive device connectivity”
The technology is crucial for the future development of devices such as self-driving vehicles and is expected to bring about $565 billion in global economic benefits by 2034, according to the London-based Global System for Mobile Communications, an industry alliance.
