Samsung Claims 5G Mobile Breakthrough

Samsung Electronics said Monday it has made a breakthrough in developing mobile technology for fifth-generation networks, though it expects it will take years until the service is brought online for subscribers.The South Korean company said it has found a way to transmit large volumes of data using a much higher frequency band than conventional ones in use, which would eventually allow users to send massive data files at a much faster speeds through their mobile devices, “practically without limitation.”

Samsung Electronics said Monday it had made a key breakthrough in developing mobile technologies for so-called fifth-generation networks that would provide data transmission up to several hundred times faster than the current fourth-generation, or 4G, technology.The breakthrough helped Samsung overcome limitations in transmitting large volumes of data over long distances using a broad band of frequencies, the company said in a news release. Samsung, the world’s biggest maker of mobile phones, said it would accelerate the research and development to commercialize those technologies by 2020.
