At a point when 5G networks have not been fully integrated and adopted by some major smartphone makers, Samsung has confirmed the commencement of research on the 6G networks.
According to the company, the entire research will be handled by the team in the newly created Advanced Communication Research Center in Korea, which is the global headquarters of research. The new research center was formed on Tuesday under the Samsung Research, based in Southern Seoul to help conduct research and development of the sixth generation (6G) networks.
“The current team on telecommunications technology standards has been expanded to start leading research on the 6G network,” said a Samsung official.
Though this development is still on the research stage, the upcoming 6G will help to integrate satellites for global coverage and provide far higher data rates and faster Internet speeds than 5G.
