In the past, we have discussed the confusion (sometimes intentionally) of what 5G technology actually entails. However, South Korea's 3 major mobile operators, SK Telecom, kt, and LG Uplus, have plans to introduce commercial 5G technology by 2020-2021.
Samsung just made the long rumored Galaxy S5 LTE-A official in South Korea. The Galaxy S5 LTE (which appears to be the long rumored S5 Prime) is the first device on the market to pack a Snapdragon 805 processor, rocking Krait 450 cores, 3GB of RAM, and impressive 225Mbps LTE-Advanced network speeds.
