Samsung announced yesterday that the company had made a breakthrough in 5G data rates using E ‑ UTRAN New Radio Dual Connectivity (EN-DC) technology.
Advanced telecommunications technologies that enable the use of 5G and 4G LTE base stations have allowed the company to achieve a data transfer rate of 5.23 Gbps on a smartphone. The company used last year’s Galaxy S20 + smartphone. The smartphone was able to download a 4GB movie in just 6 seconds.
E ‑ UTRAN New Radio Dual Connectivity enables mobile operators to increase the speed and coverage of 5G using 4G networks. Before this, the record was fixed at around 4.25 Gbps. It was set thanks to MU-MIMO technology.
Samsung is actively trying to expand its presence in the 5G market by offering end-to-end solutions, including chipsets. Samsung also signed 5G networking equipment supply agreements with mobile operators in countries like the United States, Canada, and New Zealand.
