While 4G LTE enabled devices are yet land on most peoples
hand, 5G devices have started erupting from the world of fast technology. Some
of those companies that are tirelessly working on ensuring this come to reality
includes: Nokia, Samsung, Qualcomm, Ericsson, and Intel, among others.
Checkout The First 5G smartphone In The World

5G technology offers opportunities for 3D video/UHD video
and rich media. 5G trials and tests are currently ongoing in a handful of
countries around the world. Ovum says that countries like South Korea, Japan,
China and the US are expected to have the first 5G networks in 2018.

How Fast Is 5G
Technology?
As an example, Samsungs 5G trials have returned 1.2Gbps in
vehicle moving at 100 km per hour and 7.5Gbps in a stationary position. Let
that sink in. With more optimisation work being done, perhaps we will yet see
much faster 5G speeds than these.
5G Mobile Networks
No mobile network anywhere in the world is 5G ready yet but
test operations between network equipment manufacturers and network operators
already exist. Intel plans to make its 5 mobile trial platform available for
the 5G network being deployed by Korea Telecom (KT) for the 2018 Pyeongchang
Olympic Winter Games, so expect a 5G network up and running in Korea next year.
Qualcomm released the first 5G modem, the Snapdragon X50, in
2016. We are guessing that is what powers the worlds first 5G smartphone that
was showed to the world by Qualcomms Marketing lead for LTE and 5G NR modems,
Sherif Hanna. Have a look:

anywhere, only available for experimental purposes.

While 5G standards are yet to be set, the first set will be
complete by the end of this year. You can follow the conversation around this
