China based telecom giant, ZTE recently came up with one of the first smartphones in the world that supports 5G spectrum. All networks are expected to be running on 5G by end of this decade which means we are just three years away from that and need to work really fast towards that. Known as the GIgabit Phone, this one has the potential to download 1gigabit of data per second which is around ten times better than 4G that is in use these days.
The firm unveiled the device in Barcelona on the Mobile World Congress that starts from 27th Feb. it is one of the biggest fairs in the world when it comes to mobile phones and has too many entries related with Virtual reality, Hi-Fi music, faster downloads, and much more. The ZTE spokesperson added, “With the new device, the way people stay connected will be changed forever. Focusing on 5G technologies will be one of the key priorities of ZTE’s global development.”
Almost all tech firms across the world have been pacing to come forth with products that have compatibility with 5G networks that will ensure blazing connectivity for a generation that is now getting used to online streaming of movies and TV series. The South Korean company, KT Corp, targets to get accessibility of this network by 2018 so that they will be able to telecast WInter Olympics on line from Pyeongchang. However, on a large commercial scale, this will be offered by year 2020. ZTE was mainly using this smartphone to display its innovation capability and a small glimpse into what future holds for internet users. The analyst from the first, Thomas Husson adds, “The sad reality is that this smartphone will not end up in consumers’ pockets because both 5G and Virtual Reality are still years away to be a mass-market consumer reality.”
