The 5G networks are still being deployed and there are only a couple of spots in the world where you can access those and only with a handful of 5G devices. And yet that doesn’t prevent Samsung from looking even further into the future with the sixth-generation mobile network – 6G.
On Tuesday, Samsung officially confirmed that it has expanded the existing telecommunications research team to the level of a center after the initial launch of the 5G network. It’s part of the recently formed Advanced Communications Research Center under the Samsung Research company serving as the firm’s main R&D organization in Seoul.
But apart from the 6G research, Samsung Research is also in charge of artificial intelligence and robotics. Oh, and don’t hold your breath. It will take a lot of years for the next-generation mobile network to go live. In fact it will probably be a good few years until 5G goes mainstream.
