    From what we know so far Samsung has been playing a major role in the development of 5G technology.

    As such, one of the popular smartphone manufacturers Samsung has been contributing extensively to the development of 5G technology. While the company has already conducted its first 5G fixed wireless access trial in the United Kingdom Samsung has announced it has started working on 5G technology at its research and development center in Bengaluru.

    Dipesh Shah, Managing Director of the Samsung R&D Institute in Bengaluru has confirmed this news while talking to Economic Times and he has also pointed out the fact that the facility in Bengaluru was Samsung's largest research and development center outside South Korea. Besides, Shah has highlighted that the center will be crucial in developing 5G related technologies and products.

    Samsung's R&D center in Bengaluru especially performs two distinct roles. The center develops features to address the needs of Indian consumers and mainly helps in using features like Bixby and Samsung Pay, and features in products like UDS and S-Bike which were developed here. The center also works on offering products and services in specific areas of multimedia and modem that has a global impact.

    Coming back to 5G, it is expected that the fifth generation of mobile networks will be standardized in 2020. However, for 5G to fully be functional there are several performance requirements as well as important applications that define how 5G will be developed. Thus Samsung India R&D team will be working on understanding the current technological trends in wireless communications towards 5G networks and it will also most likely be working closely with telecom operators mainly Reliance Jio (Infocomm) in developing 5G standards.


    Meanwhile, as it will take few more years to the commercialization of 5G technology it looks like Samsung is aiming to be at the forefront of this revolution or be a leader in this space. Samsung's R&D center in India will further be working alongside other R&D centers based in South Korea and other places in developing 5G technology.
