There’s been a lot of talk about 5G. 3G was fast. 4G is faster. And 5G will redefine what you think of speed.

Every new generation opened a new world to mobile users. Now, with Samsung’s 5G-ready devices, you can unlock the future.

The start of fast

3G was the first step to mobile broadband, transforming the way we lived, worked and played on our phones.

A decade ago, 3G opened the doors to data speeds that allowed us to access media wirelessly. It even blazed a trail for apps — something no mobile user can live without now.

But 3G was still limited in bandwidth, taking up to 10 minutes to download even a short video. We had to do better.

The speed of innovation

We’ve always been early adopters of mobile technology — Samsung was one of the first to introduce 4G devices to the mobile market.

A leap forward in speed compared to 3G, 4G still left something to be desired. Occasional lagging and bandwidth issues don’t fully meet the demands of the always-on population.

The next step in speed

4G LTE-A brought us closer to real-time connections, supporting gaming, mobile HD TV and video conferencing.

Although it ramped up the data speeds from 4G, remaining lag and even the potential for dropped calls kept this connection from satisfying the masses.
