Infographic: Samsung presents the evolution of communication technology on its phones and smartphone
Not long after presenting the evolution of cameras on its phones, Samsung today released an infographic that showcases the evolution of communication technology on its phones and smartphones.

The infographic first presents the Samsung SH-100, a bulky device that was launched way back in 1988 as Samsung's very first mobile phone. It then takes us through the mid 1990s (with the Samsung SCH-100, "the world's first commercialized CDMA and CDMA200 phone"), and through the early 2000s (when the SCH-E100 was released as the world's first 3G, 1X EV-DO handset).

Not long after that, HSDPA became available - at about the same time with the rise of smartphones. Next was LTE - however, the world's first LTE-capable handset wasn't a smartphone: it was the Samsung SCH-R900, a featurephone with a WVGA touchscreen display and a sliding QWERTY keyboard. The Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4 LTE-A, and the Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE are also mentioned.

The infographic ends with the Galaxy Note 4 S-LTE, the world's first tri-band carrier aggregation-enabled handset, which paves the way towards 5G technology.
