A Chines smartphone brand Vivo seems to be working on 6G supported Android phones as we have not finished celebrating 5G smartphone network. While little is known concerning 6G Network or what vivo is working on exactly. But the company has filed a patent application with European Union Intellectual Office (EUIPO) for 6G logo for starters.
For now there is no clear definition on what we should expect form 6G network. From past experiences on 4G and 5G, it is expected to be super fast compared to the predecessors. We shouldn’t expect 6G to really be here for at least another 10 years, with the 6G standard to be finished by 2030.
5G is at about 1-2.5GB/sec right now in perfect conditions, but normal users with 5G-supported smartphone will get something more akin to 100-250MB/sec. This is absolutely more than fine for anything we do right now, including 8K 60FPS streaming (trust me, I actually stream at 8K on my 250Mbps connection, which does around 30MB/sec and you need it for 8K60 – a 100Mbps pipe isn’t enough without buffering.
6G should offer somewhere around 1TB/sec… which is simply crazy. This means real-world speeds could be somewhere in the many GB/sec area, and possibly at 50-100GB/sec by the time we get to 2030.
6G Network Data Consumption
6G is going to consume alot of data because of the superfast loading time which might be in micro-second. Secondly, the high data consumption can equally result from higher quality assets like 4K, 8K video, high-end gaming, more cloud computing, AI, self-driving cars and everything in-between.
