Samsung claims they'll have 6G ready by 2028

Samsung has claimed they will have 6G ready by 2028.

A white paper from the South Korean electronics giant claims that within the next seven years they will have completed on 6G, with "mass commercialisation" expected by 2030.

In a statement, the company has claimed that 6G will be a "truly immersive extended reality" and be used on humans and machines.

They explained: "Samsung expects that the completion of the 6G standard and its earliest commercialisation date could be as early as 2028, while mass commercialisation may occur around 2030.

"Both humans and machines will be the main users of 6G, and 6G will be characterised by provision of advanced services such as truly immersive extended reality (XR), high-fidelity mobile hologram and digital replica."

What's more, Samsung claims 6G will have a peak data rate of 1,000Gbps.

Currently download speeds on 4G can reach 100Mbps in comparison.

They added: "The architectural requirements of 6G include resolving the issues arising from the limited computation capability of mobile devices as well as implementing AI right from the initial phase of technology development and enabling the flexible integration of new network entities."

Samsung's bold prediction for 6G comes after Huawei had their hopes for global domination with 5G dashed, after the UK followed the US in banning their technology from being used in their network.
