It was just a couple of years ago since 5G networks began to go live, but research for 6G is quickly pacing up and Samsung is a perfect example of it. The Korean company is preparing to launch 6G two years ahead of the predicted 2030 timeframe, and would offer 50 times higher peak data rates than 5G. Plus,it promises to reduce air latency from 5G’s under 1 millisecond to under 100 microseconds.

Developers state that 6G technology will be needed to enable a truly immersive extended reality, allowing more powerful XR headsets to be released. 6G is also expected to allow holographic displays on future smartphone models, enabling people, objects, and places to be fully replicated digitally on it. It is also expected for AI to take a more significant role on smartphones with the use of 6G networks.

In short, with the coming of 6G networks we may be able to enjoy more powerful VR and XR systems, intelligent robotics at our fingertips, interconnected cities and much more. 6G will be able to deliver a speed of 1 terabyte per second - compared to 5G top of 10 Gigabytes per second!

It is possible to have international standardization of 6G to begin in 2021, with Samsung’s plans for the earliest commercialization to happen as early as 2028. With many of us still getting accustomed to 5G and its features, we may feel 6G and its promise for an even greater technological capability already upon us.
