5G Means More Speed

5G delivers mobile Internet at speeds that are 20 times faster than 4G! Such high speed Internet connectivity will make cloud services much more useful and ubiquitous.

Thanks to the high download and upload speeds, it will accelerate the adoption of high-definition streaming content. Ultimately, this means a better viewing experience for 5G users.

Online Gaming And Sports

5G will change the ways smartphone users engage in online gaming, watch sports events and enjoy other content such as music streaming.

The greatly-accelerated speeds will shorten response time so much that users will experience an almost real-time response with most types of content.

Fornite Gaming On 5G

 

This means more enjoyable live telecasts of sporting events, and first-person or racing games.

5G technology will also allow developers to create more immersive content in higher resolution than is possible with current 4G technology.

5G Powers Augmented Reality (AR) 

5G also brings AR to life. The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G uses AR in its 3D Depth Camera to deliver better video content and sharper images.

The camera also comes with a Quick Measure feature that analyses size and distance of objects so users can take more precise pictures.
