Using a combined 40MHz of 4G frequency and 800MHz of 5G frequency in mmWave, Samsung's lab was able to pump 5.23Gbps throughput to commercially available device. For the demo Samsung used the Samsung Galaxy S20+ smartphone, 4G radios, 5G radios (Compact Macro Link), and 4G/5G common Core.
The previous record was held by Nokia which in partnership with Qualcomm managed to hit 5Gbps but with more specialized equipment. Samsung's 5G gear is actually being delivered to Verizon in the US as we speak, so we keep our hopes high for the future of the next-gen cellular connectivity standard on this side of the pond, especially when coupled with Samsung's new 5G handsets.
