South Korean technology giant Samsung claimed to have achieved 50 times faster speed in 6G research compared to 5G.

In a white paper, released by Samsung, entitled "The Next Hyper-Connected Experience for All", the company expects that the completion of the 6G standard and its earliest commercialization date could be as early as 2028, while mass commercialization may occur around 2030.

While 5G was designed to achieve 20 Gbps peak data rate, in 6G, Samsung aim to provide the peak data rate of 1,000 Gbps and a user experienced data rate of 1 Gbps. Examples of 6G performance requirements are a peak data rate of 1,000 Gbps (gigabits per second) and air latency less than 100 microseconds (μs), 50 times the peak data rate and one-tenth the latency of 5G.

Samsung expects that the completion of the 6G standard and its earliest commercialization could be as early as 2028, while mass commercialization may occur around 2030.

Samsung defines three categories of requirements that have to be met to realize 6G services – performance, architectural and trustworthiness requirements.

The architectural requirements of 6G include resolving the issues arising from the limited computation capability of mobile devices as well as implementing AI right from the initial phase of technology development and enabling the flexible integration of new network entities. 

The trustworthiness requirement addresses the security and privacy issues arising from the widespread use of user data and AI technologies.

The Samsung white paper also introduces candidate technologies that could be essential to satisfy the requirements for 6G. These include the use of the terahertz (THz) frequency band, novel antenna technologies to enhance the coverage of high frequency band signals, advanced duplex technologies, the evolution of network topology, spectrum sharing to increase the efficiency of frequency utilization and the use of AI in wireless communications.
