The 5G smart phones will be widely available in 2020 across China, offering high-speed, high-quality, high-user experience and intelligent 5G services, a Chinese official disclosed on Tuesday.
The 5G network at the office will enable teleconferences through virtual reality technology, and 5G devices are times faster than 4G devices.
China started research and experiment on 5G technology as early as 2016 and piloted the technology in multiple cities two years later.
