Starting with the spring of 2019, another spring ushered in a new revolution in the world of telecommunications; but in different areas, the spring of 5G networks, where the launch of a number of smartphones that support the technology, in conjunction with the support of a number of telecommunications companies in some countries. These include Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and Samsung OnePlus 7 Pro 5G.
However, the question that remains of concern to many is: what are the advantages of 5G networks of 4G? Is it about speeding up – as 4G networks have been distinct from 3G – or is it more comprehensive?
5G Vs. 4G: Main Differences
Today we are reviewing 10 things where 5G is distinct from 4G:
- 8K video streaming.
The 5G networks are capable of streaming 8K video without any lag, thanks to the high speed of the most promising technology. You can transfer the same amount of data in a faster time, and at the same time transfer more data the time needed to broadcast 4K without delay in 4G networks is enough to broadcast 8K in 5G networks.
- Huge amounts of downloads at a glance.
The ability of 5G networks to stream 8K video without delay naturally means they can also download 8K video more quickly than 4G networks, and the same applies to different types of data, including games, data, and applications.
- Support live streaming of games without delay as if stored on the device.
Gaming on mobile devices is relatively slow because it depends on the speed of the Internet. It is stored on your device.
- Broadcast VR virtual reality games.
Speaking of gaming streaming, virtual reality games will be much faster and more accurate, thanks to the much faster speed of 5G compared to 4G. This is not only for gaming but for virtual events and conferences that will be broadcast via VR technology will be better.
- Broadcast events with virtual reality technology.
New technologies, which are still rare, include the broadcasting of virtual reality events, including sports events, but because of the low prevalence of VR glasses, and the weakness of current speeds, it takes time, but it is expected that the 5G networks will contribute to accelerating Spread.
- Increasing live broadcasting of events.
It’s not about smartphones, but live TV will be better. With current broadcasting technologies, companies are constrained at low speeds and are constrained by large equipment, such as broadcast trucks.
- Holographic calls.
The current 4G networks offer video calling, but with 5G networks you can make hologram calls, which Vodafone has already been successful with, making a hologram call over 5G networks.
- Improved augmented reality techniques.
Augmented Reality is an emerging technology in recent years; however, it is still in the early stages, so 5th-generation networks may change the future of this technology. With high speeds, a smooth Augmented Reality experience can be presented with the best picture.
- Self-driving car spread.
5G networks may play an important role in the proliferation of autonomous cars, which must be able to exchange data with other vehicles, and smart roads, to function effectively, which requires high Internet speeds, which promises 5G networks.
- Smarter homes and cities.
Of the most important areas that await the Spread of the fifth-generation 5G networks is IoT, which include Internet-connected devices, which will become with them homes and cities more intelligent, including the ability to pollution control, traffic, pedestrian traffic, energy consumption, and That, instantaneously.
