The FCC today opened a notice of inquiry that will see the agency begin to explore next-generation wireless networks. The FCC is hoping to use spectrum above 24GHz for new wireless networks. This spectrum, sometimes referred to as millimeter waves, has long been regarded as ill-suited for wireless networking use due to its short-range and line-of-site propagation characteristics. However, the densely packed waves can hold large volumes of data, or 1,000 times more than current-generation technology can, according to the FCC. The FCC plans to study the technical needs of making this spectrum useful and the potential regulatory regime needed to oversee it. The move comes as 4G LTE networks are in their final stages of being built in the U.S. The FCC knows it needs to find new ways to meet the crushing demand for capacity. "How do we meet these demands?" asked Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel. "We look up. Way, way, up. To infinity and beyond."

Samsung has announced its newest generation of foldable phones: the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4. Both have similar designs and features compared to their predecessors, with a slew of small updates and refinements across the board.

Samsung today announced its lineup of flagship phones for 2022: the Galaxy S22 series. The top-end S22 Ultra sees the biggest changes as it essentially absorbs Samsung's Note series with an integrated S Pen stylus and a more Note-like shape and design, instead of the Contour Cut design of the other models.
Samsung's Note series phones are pricey and aimed at road warriors. So you might think they're ill-suited for 2020.

Apple has revealed the iPhone 14 series, with new features, improved specs, and new size options. In place of a Mini option, the iPhone 14 will come in the same 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screen size options as the Pro models.
Realistically, what can't you do on LTE/LTE-A that 5G would be needed?
Besides downloads, what can't you do with this type of speed? There's a certain point where enough is enough, now focus on other points - not to say technology improvements aren't good or needed, but I'm more concerned with my battery life than a 5G network.
They need to research and implement batteries that can charge in unique ways, or hold larger amounts of power without hindering the phone with excess weight.
We've already had diminishing returns on the CPU front (Desktop status) - same can be said for phones - they really aren't making large strides like they used to. We've kind of reached a reali...
4G LTE networks are in their final stages
I guess they haven't used T-Mobile as they seem to be in the final stages of deploying their Edge network.
Which is sad. The more you need out of a carrier, the smaller your options become, u...
Make sure LTE-A it's developed at full capacity before talk about 5g clowns lol
