  • China suddenly launched 5G nationwide


    The global launch of 5G in China was planned for 2020, but suddenly on October 31, three local mobile operators began providing access to fifth-generation networks in 50 cities across the country. This not only made China the world leader in introducing new technology overnight but also strengthened the position of HUAWEI.

    China suddenly launched 5G nationwide

    The country's largest operator is China Mobile Ltd. launched a 5G network in 50 cities including Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen, the cost of the basic package is about $18 per month. Competitors represented by China Telecom Corp. and China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd. also provided customers with access to 5G at comparable prices. The tariff for the most active users costs about $85.

    Operators planned to start operating networks only next year, but accelerated work in connection with US sanctions against one of the main suppliers of 5G equipment - HUAWEI. As a result, China has become the world's largest user of new networks, and in the USA, fifth-generation communications that do not use HUAWEI solutions are offered only in certain areas of some cities.

    China suddenly launched 5G nationwide

    Before the launch of the services, about 10 million Chinese people were pre-registered for using 5G. With the launch of the fifth-generation networks, they gained access to video and games at a higher speed, will be able to use more advanced applications for virtual reality and communicate via video communications with better quality.

    The level of next-generation communications in China is especially important for HUAWEI. Dominance in the world's largest market will minimize the impact of US sanctions. Despite pressure from the United States, in July, HUAWEI announced that it had signed more than 60 contracts for the deployment of 5G networks in different regions, including at least 28 European countries.

      As it turned out at the conference, the new network is not only the fastest in the world but also a network that will completely change our lives and affect global communications. "5G will have a huge impact on people's lives," says Laila Worrell, CEO of Altran North America, a high - tech engineering company. "We will all witness great progress and new technologies, the main culprit of which will be the new network."
      5G and drones
      BMW iNEXT model should appear on the market in 2021. Unmanned vehicles have long been objects that everyone was waiting for and wanted to see for a long time. And the new 5G network has made these ideas a reality.
      Unprecedented speed

      Experts say that 5G can become 100 times faster than 4G, and a huge number of devices can simultaneously connect to the network. This will allow vehicles to communicate with each other in real-time: they will know when another vehicle is changing lanes or braking and can influence traffic accordingly.
      For example, the electric SUV BMW iNEXT is equipped with sensors that collect and process data from the situations around it. This car is constantly studying and analyzing the road, and then sends information to the cloud, generating a real map in real-time, which, in turn, applies to all other cars.
      5G and beekeeping

      The benefits of 5G do not end there. The network can also have a beneficial impact on the environment when used in agriculture. David Houghton, General Manager of Asset Tracking Solutions at NimbeLink, explains how 5G and the Internet of things can help protect honeybees and accelerate the production and delivery of this product worldwide. "Tracking devices will be able to monitor the condition and safety of the hive," he says. Thus, a whole system of tracking and control of hives has been developed, with the help of which data such as temperature and humidity are determined by sensors and transmitted to the main computer.

      Find out what will give users a new generation of mobile communication and whether it is worth buying smartphones with 5g support right now.
      What is 5G?
      5G (fifth generation) - is the abbreviated name of the fifth generation of mobile communications, which will replace the existing 3G and 4G. Behind this reduction lies a whole set of technologies, many of which are still under development. Completion of the testing phase and approval of standards is expected not earlier than 2020.
      What are the main differences between 5G and existing standards?
      The introduction of the fifth generation of mobile networks promises to be a revolutionary breakthrough in the field of communication through the following innovations:
      Massive MIMO - This technology involves the use of multiple antennas on transceivers. As a result, the data rate and signal quality will increase in proportion to the number of antennas due to the diversity of reception. New range - Today LTE networks occupy frequencies below 3.5 GHz. 5g standards imply the use of higher frequency bands. This will get rid of interference but will make to increase the power of transmitters and more densely place the base station. Network slicing (network slicing) - This technology allows mobile operators to deploy logically isolated networks, each of which will be allocated for certain needs, for example for the Internet of things, broadband access, video broadcasting and so on. Thus, the new generation mobile network will be able to adapt more flexibly to different applications. D2D (Device-to-device) - Devices that are close to each other will be able to communicate directly. What do we get from the introduction of 5G?
      The first and most important consequence of 5g implementation is a significant increase in data transfer speed. In the course of preliminary testing, it was recorded the achievement of peak performance at the level of 25.3 Gbit/s. if we talk about the real speeds that ordinary users expect, then in 5G they will reach 10 Gbit/s.
      For comparison: now the maximum speed of 4G subscribers rarely exceeds 100 MB/s Most network bandwidth will be useful for live broadcasts of high-definition video, virtual reality applications, an organization of systems of remote training.
      Another 5G reduces the signal delay to 1 millisecond. Recall that now the delay can reach 10 milliseconds in 4G networks and 100 milliseconds in 3G. This improvement will enable mobile connectivity to be used even in situations where response time is critical. For example, for remote control of agricultural machinery, industrial robots or unmanned vehicles.
      The global spread of fifth-generation networks is likely to lead to the gradual death of Wi-Fi. Your smartphone, tablet or laptop will always and everywhere have access to the Internet, regardless of whether there is a nearby router or not.
      Will my smartphone work on the new network?
      No. To use all the features of next-generation networks, you will need to have a smartphone that supports them. It is already known about the upcoming release of several such devices. Among them are Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, Samsung Galaxy S10, Motorola Moto Z3, ZTE 5G, Huawei Mate Flex, Oppo F11 Pro, Nokia 10 and some others.
      However, do not rush to be at the forefront of buyers. 5G technology is actively developing, its standards have not yet been approved. It is possible that the final implementation will be slightly different from the current one, so the devices sold now will quickly become obsolete. In addition, 4G mobile networks have not fully exhausted the potential of their development.
      When to Expect?
      Now in many countries are testing 5G. The full launch of the first networks of the new generation is planned not earlier than 2020. This is likely to happen in the Asian region.

      5G, the next-generation communication standard, will support the Internet of things, smart cars, and other technology. The new mobile standard will not be available until 2020, but the relevant specifications are being developed at full speed, and it becomes clear that the 5g standard will be significantly different from 4G. We are talking about increasing the speed of information exchange for mobile phones and tablets and a variety of other solutions, each with its own requirements.
      Predictions from Ericsson
      How 5G technology will work and why it is needed if the ultra-fast mobile Internet exists now?
      According to Ericsson, the future looks like this.
      Unmanned and networked vehicles will share information with each other. In the event of an accident, the car closest to the scene of the accident will report it to all cars following it. This will allow them to reduce the speed in advance or, in the case of traffic jams, to calculate a new route.
      Vehicle sensors will measure weather conditions more accurately and send data via the 5G network so that the vehicle calculates the best driving route.
      In the field of public transport, the 5G network will allow real-time tracking of the number of waiting for passengers at stops. The bus driver will miss the stop without passengers, and the Manager will send additional transport to their places of congestion.
      In the 5g era, all home electronics will be interconnected. If earlier when moving from one room to another had to carry a portable device to continue, for example, to listen to your favorite radio station, now the speakers in different rooms will contact each other, and listening will continue from the interrupted place. In addition, it will be possible to monitor the energy consumption of each device or find out how much electricity is produced by solar panels.

      The 5G network will change emergency services, providing reliable emergency communications and prioritizing police and emergency communications. And firefighters in helmets with cameras will broadcast the image to command and receive help in difficult rescue operations.
      5G - Technology
      In the past, we managed to streamline most of them, but the selection of technologies that ensure their practical application continues.
      Among them:
      ultra-high frequencies, which previously seemed impossible to achieve, will provide much greater speed; developing systems, sending data in tiny parts, will extend the work of the Internet of things devices for many years; reducing delays for tasks that require an immediate response. 5G - Network Speed
      Evaluation of the increase in the speed of the standard 5G compared to the previous is ambiguous. Ericsson managed to achieve growth in 50 times - to 5 Gbit/s. Samsung reached the figure of 7.5 GB/s with a strong signal of 1.2 Gbps in moving at the high-speed cars. The EU – China partnership intends to increase the speed of 5G by 100 times. NTT DoCoMo, a Japanese mobile operator, together with Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Samsung, and Nokia is trying to reach 10 Gbit/s. and scientists from the University of Surrey suggest a speed of 1 Tbit/s. It is expected that over the next 10 years the speed of mobile networks will grow a thousand times.
      The increase in speed will require better antennas and equipment, as well as an expanded frequency spectrum. In the US, the process of allocating this resource has already begun.

      Internet of Things
      With lower connection costs, more devices have access to Wi-Fi. The concept of combining phones, coffee and washing machines, headphones, lamps and everything else into a single network is called the Internet of things. By 2020, it is expected that there will be more than 26 billion such devices in the world. And the number of connections will be even greater.
      The ability of things to "feel" with the help of sensors and remotely run commands can be used in urban planning, technology, smart homes, control systems of heat and electricity, security, health, public transport, retelling.
      The Internet of things requires a small connection speed, but for a huge number of devices. Already operate a dedicated network that uses a narrow frequency band, and the developers of the 5G standard want to take part in this process. Thus, telecommunication networks will have to support not only mobile users but also "smart" things. The management of such heterogeneous traffic is called upon to come to the aid of a new standard.

      Obviously, the next generation 5g network will support unmanned vehicle technology and augmented reality applications. In this case, the information should be received in real-time. The time of reception and transmission in 4G networks exceeds 10 MS, which is very much. The future standard can completely change the network architecture by moving data storage from data centers to end nodes, including smart devices.
      A moving car, for example, requires information about the location of the nearest vehicle. Existing networks with the flow of such data for three cars cannot cope. Large data transfer delays require local data allocation.
      It is assumed that the responsiveness of the next generation of networks will be the maximum. The delay in data transmission will not exceed 1 MS, even if the speed of the terminal 500 km/h. This latency will be the main driving factor in the creation of new technologies, such as driving in city traffic surgery a distance.

      Reach consensus
      If the situation with the definition of the range of potential technologies in 2015 has improved, the technology itself is still being developed. It is necessary to determine which 5g technologies are needed first and which will be implemented after.
      Despite the lack of standard and confidence in the priority of technologies, manufacturing companies are trying to lead the development and implementation of 5G technologies to take a profitable position in the future.
      Nokia in April 2015 announced the acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent for 16.6 billion us dollars, and the US telecommunications company Verizon Wireless said that the first 5G-network in the US will appear in 2016.
      First Signs
      Prototypes of 5G networks have already appeared. The first 5G network was launched in South Korea. SK Telecom introduced the new technology at the opening of the research center, which will be engaged in its development. And by the XXIII winter Olympic games 2018 in South Korea, the company plans to build a 5g network across the country.
      NTT DoCoMo also intends to launch a 5G network in Japan for the 2020 summer Olympics in Tokyo.

      5G network against the United States
      Like previous standards, the 5g standard is developed by the 3GPP consortium and approved by ITU, the International Telecommunication Union. Don't want to stay on the sidelines and manufacturers. In October 2015, some regional groups agreed to meet every six months to develop a common position on the 5g standard.
      A similar agreement was reached in September 2015 between the EU and China. Ericsson and TeliaSonera reached a strategic partnership agreement to provide mobile operator customers in Tallinn and Stockholm with access to the 5G network in 2018.
      As can be seen, the countries of the world agree on cooperation in this area. All, except the United States, accustomed to occupying a leading position in everything.

      4.5G preparing for the future
      Qualcomm has offered 4.5 G LTE Advanced Pro technology, which is planned to be implemented over the next four years. This enables the company to support both the wider range of frequencies required by the 5G standard and previously deployed LTE networks, which will reduce latency and increase throughput.
      Features of the network:
      High throughput by combining the spectra of frequency; support 32 operators at the same time and increase throughput by combining the frequency and distribution of network traffic between operators; a 10-fold reduction in latency compared to LTE Advanced when using existing towers and frequencies from 1 MS to 70 MS; the use of the resource of the incoming communication lines to outgoing needs; increasing the number of antennas on base stations to increase coverage and signal strength; increase energy saving of IoT devices by narrowing the range to 1.4 MHz and 180 kHz (up to 10 years on a single battery); 1 Gbit/s for information exchange between cars, pedestrians, and IoT devices; scanning the environment without turning on Wi-Fi or GPS on a mobile device. Technological barriers
      Fraunhofer Institute of telecommunications in Berlin conducts experiments with frequencies of 40-100 GHz, Samsung uses in its experiments the frequency of 28 GHz, and Nokia – more than 70 GHz.
      The operation of devices in the millimeter-wave range has such a feature as extremely poor signal propagation, the power of which falls significantly with the distance from the base station. In addition, signal interference can be caused even by the human body.

      The output is the use of technology MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) when send and receive multiple signals simultaneously. Now it is used for LTE and WLAN. For high frequencies, Massive MIMO – technology of reception optimization is used, when dozens of small antennas are placed in mobile devices and hundreds – in the transmitter.
      Manufacturer of antennas, SkyCross has created a system of 4x4 MIMO, which can be used in terminal size 16x10 cm Is much larger than antennas for LTE. For example, the size of the LG G4 15x7,6 cm, Samsung Galaxy S6 - 14x7 cm, while the Apple iPhone 6 Plus – 16х7,8 see the 4x4 MIMO System is not new – except the terminals are LTE-Advanced, it is used in satellite television systems, stringent requirements for size and power consumption will be charged. Thus, the creation of a small mobile device with 4 antennas will be a test for designers.
      The development of portable terminals will also require a lot of effort. According to the representative of Texas Instrument, the creation of chips capable of transmitting data at high frequencies will require the use of new technologies. In 2015, the project to create the 5g standard was officially named IMT-2020. It is a pity that the rest is still not seen at the end of the process.

      Fifth-generation mobile networks have already begun to be deployed around the world, and telecommunications companies are continuing to refine and improve their technologies. For example, Ericsson has announced a new record for data transfer rates using 5G technologies when using commercial equipment.

      According to the company's report, it managed to achieve a download speed of 4.3 Gbit/s in 5G networks using proprietary equipment that combines 800 MHz of the millimeter-wave spectrum. According to Ericsson, this figure is higher than all previous records by an average of 1 Gbit/s. Information was transmitted to a test smartphone equipped with a 5g modem Qualcomm Snapdragon X55.
      According to Ericsson representatives, the new equipment will be used for commercial purposes by the end of this year. Earlier it was reported that the 6G network will allow you to download data at speeds up to 8000 Gbit/s, but you will have to wait for their appearance for another ten years.

      5G technology promises incredible Internet speed and minimal latency. The Japanese operator decided to prove the advantages of fifth-generation communication in practice and arranged a real race between the signal at a frequency of 28 GHz and a high-speed train.

      The largest Japanese telecom operator NTT DOCOMO installed a mobile terminal on the Shinkansen N700S passenger train and located three base stations along the Tokaido-Shinkansen railway. All the transmitters were equipped with advanced beamforming and tracking technologies, with the help of which they transmitted video in the resolution of 8K to the composition, and in 4K they transmitted the image from external cameras on the train.
      The experiment confirmed that 5G communication is capable of supporting data transfer at speeds exceeding 1 Gbit/s. Representatives of NTT DOCOMO noted that throughout the segment the train moved at a speed of 283 km/h, which did not affect the stability of the connection.

    • OPPO Reno 3 review: Quad camera and lots of memory

      Last year's OPPO Reno 2 smartphone was remembered for its almost flagship characteristics. In the new generation, the emphasis has shifted - the role of the top-end device has been assigned to the Reno 3 Pro, and the standard “three” has become a mid-budget phone. However, Reno 3 received a powerful quad camera, high-quality screen, and a large amount of memory. We find out how good the new product is.

      Four rear modules and a 44-megapixel front-facing camera
      The main camera of Reno 3 received four modules, as in the top-end device of the series - Reno 3 Pro. However, there are some functions missing, such as interpolation up to 108 MP. All the blocks are arranged in a line on an islet that protrudes noticeably upwards if you wear the gadget without a cover.
      The main module has a 1/2-inch sensor with a resolution of 48 MP and a lens with an aperture of f/1.8. As usual, in standard mode, it produces 12-megapixel images, and if desired, you can take photos in full resolution - 48 MP. Telephoto is based on a 13-megapixel sensor and a lens with an f/2.4 aperture. The ultra-wide Angle is equipped with an 8-megapixel sensor and a lens with an f/2.2 aperture. Finally, the 2 MP sensor is designed to assess the depth of the scene.

      Telephoto, in addition to 2x optical zoom, provides a 5x hybrid zoom. The photo app allows you to quickly switch between four shooting modes: ultra-wide angle, 1x, 2x, and 5x.
      All modules can function together with HDR. This option works perfectly in Auto mode, improving both the light and dark tones of contrasting scenes. Artificial intelligence confidently recognizes the scenes being shot and selects settings.
      However, in non-standard lighting conditions, if you choose wide-angle optics, the color rendering will not always be accurate. This does not happen with the main module and the telephoto lens.

      The main module paired with the auxiliary module gives clear portraits and realistic blurs the background
      Reno 3 shoots well in mixed and artificial lighting, as well as in the absence of light in the dark. In the most problematic cases, the Night program helps out. It combines several shots and works out all the tones of contrasting scenes. For shooting with manual settings, an Expert preset is provided.
      Multi-megapixel selfies
      The front camera is built into the display and is located in the middle of its upper edge, in the "drop". The camera is equipped with a 44-megapixel sensor and a wide-angle f/2.4 aperture lens. The default settings are set to a 40-megapixel resolution of images. And the full one is selected by pressing a separate on-screen button. The image quality in both cases is approximately the same. Sharpness appears only from a distance of about 30 cm, that is, for example, it is impossible to obtain a macro photograph of your eye. It seems that the calculation was made for shooting with outstretched hands or a selfie stick. For self-portraits, there are traditionally many beauty options: smoothing the skin, correcting the shape of the face and nose, eye size, and so on.

      Selfies in 44MP mode
      The smartphone records 4K videos at 30 fps. The supported format is Full HD with 30 and 60 fps, as well as slow-motion clips in HD and Full HD. During movie shooting, you can freely switch the zoom.
      In 4K mode at 30 frames per second, the gadget produces a picture with the correct color reproduction and high definition. But when working with hands, stabilization is noticeably lacking.
      Shooting in Full HD at 60 fps uses Ultra Steady Video 2.0 stabilization, which makes the picture smoother.
      Work and entertainment without lags
      Reno 3 is built on an eight-core MediaTek Helio P90 chipset. The new product in AnTuTu gives out figures comparable to the results of Kirin 970 and Snapdragon 712, and slightly ahead of Snapdragon 710. And in the Geekbench 5 rating - is on par with Snapdragon 845. This speed is sufficient to avoid slowdowns in any applications.
      8 GB of RAM allows you to run multiple programs simultaneously. The built-in fingerprint sensor acts quickly and accurately. There are no performance problems in games. In the popular WoT: Blitz with default graphics settings, the frame rate is confidently kept at 60 fps.

      The device has only one main speaker, which produces clear sound without distortion up to about 90% of the volume. Plus, there is support for Dolby Atmos. In this software add-on, you can add surround sound and a bit of bass - a great option for multimedia applications.
      Unfortunately, you will not be able to create a full stereo pair, because the speaker is quieter than the main one. But in Reno3 Pro two speakers shake as if you are holding a good Bluetooth speaker in your hands. Complete in-ear headphones deliver high-quality sound. Thanks to the audio jack, you can connect your favorite accessory.

      The built-in storage is not too large: 128 GB. But it is easy to increase it by using a microSD memory card. It is placed in a triple slot next to two nano-SIM cards. We had a 512 GB test card at hand - it worked without problems.
      High autonomy
      The gadget is powered by a 4025 mAh battery and supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology. A 20 W adapter and a complete cable during the test provided recharging at high speed. For example, from 33 to 78%, the battery was charged in 13 minutes, and up to 100% in 27.
      An hour-long shootout in WoT: Blitz (display brightness - 50%) consumes 11 percent of the battery. That is, without going to the outlet, it is about 9 hours of offline gaming. In Flight-mode, with the same brightness, about 4.4% of the battery charge is spent per hour playing the video in Full HD. Therefore, you should expect 22 hours of offline video viewing. Excellent results!

      If long-term autonomy is not so important, you can disable power consumption optimization in the settings and select "High performance". In this case, the device will work a little faster, and the battery consumption will be stronger.
      Great screen
      Reno 3 is equipped with an AMOLED panel with a diagonal of 6.4 inches, a resolution of FHD+ (2400x1080 pixels), and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The display occupies 90.8% of the front panel area, has a teardrop-shaped cutout for the front and thin frames. The image is clear, with rich but natural colors. The viewing angles are large, and the brightness reserve is sufficient for using the phone on the street in any weather. With minimal screen light, it is comfortable to read in a dark room. And at night, you can switch to "Dark mode" - in fact, this is an inverse version of the design: with a black display and a white font. Many people will find it even more convenient, and it also saves battery life.
      Branded shell of the seventh version
      Reno 3 is running a proprietary ColorOS 7 shell based on Android 10. When comparing with the previous version, you can see that the font has not changed, but many icons have been redrawn. However, their shape and size can be easily changed at your own discretion. The screen can be converted to a split format - just make a three-finger swipe up.
      Specifications of OPPO Reno 3
      DISPLAY: 6.4 ", FHD + (2400x1080), 20: 9
      CHIPSET: CPU MediaTek Helio P90 (MT6779V), 2.2 GHz, GPU PowerVR GM 9446
      RAM: 8 GB
      STORAGE: 128 GB
      MAIN CAMERA: main - 48 megapixels (f/1.8) + 13 megapixels (telephoto) + 8 megapixels (wide-angle) + 2 megapixels (scene depth sensor);
      FRONT CAMERA: - 44 megapixels with f/2.4 aperture
      BATTERY: 4025 mAh
      FEATURES: a sub-screen fingerprint sensor, an NFC module, an audio output, support for microSD cards up to 256 GB (without SIM replacement), a proprietary shell ColorOS 7, three body colors: black, white and blue.
      Test results
      ANTUTU: 223,438
      GEEKBENCH: 5 428 single-core, 1568 multi-core
      AUTONOMY: about 22 hours of video playback

      The OPPO Reno 3 is an interesting device with balanced characteristics. From the first minutes, the beautiful design, slim body, and high-quality 6.4-inch screen make you happy. Later on - high performance, fast recharging, and good battery life. The advantages include the photo-filling, including a 44-megapixel front camera. In addition, the built-in drive can be expanded with a memory card, but not to the detriment of the second SIM card - a trifle, but nice.
