Nigerians still waits as Samsung begins 6G development that may be 50 times faster than 5G

As Nigerians wait patiently for the official launch of 5G network in August, 2022. Other parts of the world are gearing up for the unavailing of the 6G network.


According to Gizmochina, Just recently, Samsung Electronics released a new white paper that showcases its plans for the next generation standard of networking, which is 6G. It shared a paper titled “6G Spectrum: Expanding the Frontier,” so let’s have a look.


According to Sunghyun Choi, Samsung’s Executive VP and Head of the Advanced Communications Research Center, “We have started on our journey long ago to understand, develop and standardize the 6G communications technology. We are committed to taking the lead and sharing our findings to spread our vision to bring the next hyper connected experience to every corner of life.” In other words, the South Korean tech giant has begun work into bringing the next gen standard into the market.


Furthermore, 6G would require a spectrum with ultra wideband bandwidth that ranges from “hundreds of MHz to tens of GHz.” In simpler terms, this will allow for high fidelity mobile holograms and truly immersive extended reality (XR) as well. The company is also focusing on improving the coverage of the next gen communications standard. For this, it is considering all available bands for 6G, from low band under 1GHz to mid band in the 1 to 24Ghz range and even high bands that range in 24 to 300GHz range.


Arriving at the possible improvements 6G is offering, Samsung claims that the speeds from 6G might hit up to 1 Terabits per second (Tbps), which is the 50 times faster than the 20Gbps on 5G networks. During its tests back in June 2021, the company managed to demonstrate a 6Gbps data rate at a 15 meters distance indoors. At 30 meters distance indoors, the network managed to have a data rate of 12Gbps. Even at 120 meters distance, the data rate was still reaching 2.3Gbps. Samsung plans to share more details and the findings of its 6G research in the future as well, so stay tuned for more updates.
