How new 5G mobile phones are about to change the world we live in
We have reached the doorstep of a new era which is much more promising than ever before. The rate at which people are adopting new technology has blown up at an exceptional rate. Mobile phones first started measly being produced in the 1980s when the networks were just 1G and all that was offered to the customers was voice calls but the 2G was announced, it bought message service and 3G bought a revolution where people would use mobile phone computing on their devices. But when the 4G network was launched and within three years everything seemed to be changed. From just voice calls to within 20 years, mobile phone users were taking advantage of mobile phone computing and the users started enjoying thousands of applications which made the world much different. For instance applications such as Instagram, WhatsApp, Uber and Just Eat have billions of everyday users globally. But what we are about to witness is far more than what a normal person can imagine.
Until the launch of 4G, the US was the leading the network’s market but after the new 5G spectrum, the US has been replaced by China and South Korea. Both Samsung and Huawei have been working for more than five years on 5G technologies and that made them capable to offer first 5G mobile phones whereas Apple has yet to come up with its first 5G mobile phone. The mobile phones market dynamics are changing and we might witness some new entrants making big gains whereas some old vendors are being pushed out of the market. The same happened when 4G was launched, vendors who captured the market first such as Samsung and Apple managed to push those who didn’t step up to the new 4G technology such as HTC, Nokia and Blackberry out of the market and within few years they had to lose tons of their market share. The new applications the 5G is about to facilitate, we can expect that billions of mobile phones will head towards landfills in the UK and majority of the advanced world and that’s why you should look to sell your mobile phone before your old mobile phone loses all of its value.
Although most of the providers in the UK such as Vodafone, EE and O2 have already started upgrading their networks to a 5G network and there are few models available in the market by Samsung and Huawei which are capable of benefiting from 5G spectrums, it is expected that the 5G will arrive full throttle in 2023. And once it reaches the full spectrum, it will without a doubt change the way mobile phones are used today. It’s expected to provide us ten times better speed the lease and it can reach 100 times better speed at the peak. Speed, without a doubt, will increase the dependencies on mobile phones as bigger data packets would be easy to get transferred but at the same time, it will play a vital role in making too many new applications possible which have been just available to big corporations till now with their own data stream.
The new 5G is about to bring much more reliable, seamless and faster speed. Tech firms, banks, hospitals and other data-intensive companies will have the bandwidth to move enormous amounts of information in real-time even letting robots are controlled from across continents. The applications which will benefit from the 5G spectrum are countless. Governments of advanced countries are also looking forward to benefiting from the 5G spectrum as they will be able to deal with more complex algorithms in real-time and respond to emergencies much quicker. Pundits of technology are calling the 5G as the crystal of the 4th industrial revolution. It might take a few years to cover the whole of the UK but when it does, we can expect much more data getting transferred among more users at a much faster speed than we ever experienced. Other than all these applications, the major revolution will be bought through augmented and virtual reality which in a nutshell might remove any need for people to meet physically. Rather than in personal meetings, we can expect more holographic meetings. The retail industry is also expected to take full benefit from 5G technology. One of the industry commentators on 5G from Wolf Prey Advisors stated: “AR, VR, and 5G will allow stores to know the shopper in context. For example, why are they shopping? Are they shopping for a first date, an anniversary?” Having said all that, there will be a much greater need for vendors and service providers to take steps through which data can be protected in a much more efficient way.
