Samsung is now ready to flaunt its technologies come Feb. 27 to March 2 at the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona. One of it is its 5G wireless broadband that according to Samsung could deliver seamless experience and ubiquitous connectivity.
In its official website, Samsung pointed out that during the congress they will be exhibiting devices and technologies that can efficiently operate a busy LTE network to a full span of 5G technologies. Samsung hopes to become the forerunner in designing and constructing future networks.
Samsung claimed that its 5G technology will address problems of internet providers specifically on aspects of physical infrastructures, labor intensive installations, and cost of deployment to deliver broadband from homes and offices. It will have an affordable fiber technology that will eradicate high speed access limitation to homes and businesses.
It can be recalled that Samsung has already succeeded its 5G prototype trial in conjunction with China Mobile Research Institute. Key technologies like spatial modulation and FBMC (Filter Bank Multicarrier) are validated, the performance of throughput, and outband emission are also tested.
Aside from the 5G technology that Samsung will be highlighting in the congress is also the rumored foldable and bendable devices. Reports claimed that Samsung will be introducing a foldable smartphone prototype but it will only be presented alongside a folder panel in a private exhibition room that could only be accessed by select individuals and clients, Phone Arena has learned.
Reports added that the private exhibition of these devices will allow Samsung to see the potential market response to such products, and could also serve as a way for the firm to entice other device manufacturers into placing orders for the new screens though its subsidiary Samsung Display. Recent reports also claimed that Samsung fans will be able to peek other bendable tech gadgets from Samsung.
The MWC's show floor will display both inward-and-outward-folding products available for inspection by every attendee. Samsung may have disappointed some fans due to skipping the announcement of its next Galaxy S flagship in MWC but these foldable and bendable devices will be enough to put back the excitement to Samsung fans out there.
