A few online resources have informed that the smartphone tech giant Samsung Electronics has recently tested sixth-generation (6G) mobile networks in the United States. The company has plans to test whether 6G smartphones can be used to communicate with base stations in medium and long distances. The company has been a pioneer in the development of 5G technology, it is not a surprise, therefore, that the company has already started the trials for 6G technology.

The Samsung American Research Center or the SRA filed for a test frequency license to the Federal Communications Commission or commonly known as FCC on November 15th, and the company was granted the license. The report also pointed out that the company will conduct the said experiments using a bandwidth of 133 to 148 gigahertz in the US laboratory in Texas. Back in 2020, Samsung had launched a 6G white paper which was considered as a new generation of mobile communication technology. Moreover, Samsung Research has been dedicated to establishing a new generation of communication research centers that will explore and expand 6G technology.

Additionally, Samsung Electronics and the University of California Santa Barbara have successfully completed the demonstration of a prototype 6G wireless communication system back in June 2021. The prototype has a frequency of 140 GHz and a bandwidth of 2 GHz. The new set of experiments and demonstrations will be offered on the basis of data transmission at a distance of 15 meters along with a transmission speed of 6.2 GBPS.

Samsung has claimed that the 6G technology that it is developing will be able to deliver peak data rates 50 times faster than the 5G technology. Moreover, the company has also established a timeline and set a deadline. Samsung has revealed that the company is looking to commercialize the 6G technology as early as 2028.
