Foldable Phones Don’t Matter, 5G Does!

What do I think about foldable phones? I think foldable phones don’t matter! Foldable phones remind me of flip phones back in time, but now instead of flipping a phone in style, we can unfold a phone into a tablet. Since foldable phones are so expensive, I guess using the tablet and unfoldable phone I already have will be just fine!

Although foldable phones are not that important, the 5G technology that gets to debut on these foldable phones is really important! Since 5G allows communication over the air almost instantaneously, and so this could allow innovations in the Internet of Things sector to thrive big time.

One company right now is leading the pack in term of 5G is of course none other than the Chinese giant, Huawei. Right now, Huawei is getting a lot of heat from the United States. Huawei’s CFO Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of the founder of Huawei, is being under house arrest in Canada in the behest of the United States’ extradition agreement with Canada. Furthermore, the United States is increasingly persuading other countries to not use Huawei’s 5G technology.

5G can be really useful for whatever purposes that demand faster wireless communication. I may not know what purposes would demand 5G the most, but I do know that 5G will be great for commercial purposes such as the Internet of Things devices. Furthermore, 5G will accelerate the use of driverless cars and other automated vehicles.

5G can allow driverless cars to see each other instantaneously and also communicate with smart roads and highways instantaneously. 4G technology is definitely too slow and less reliable than 5G when it comes to deploying the technology on a massive scale to allow crucial transit system to work in a smarter way. So I think 5G will definitely be a game changer in wireless communication.

Anyhow, I guess it’s going to be expensive to build a massive backbone system that could support the 5G wireless system. It seems though, this isn’t the problem for Huawei. Huawei seems to be able to deploy 5G network for various platforms in China already! For an example, a 5G network is now already up and running for Qingdao Port in Eastern China.

China is leading the way to deploy 5G network not only in China but across the world. Huawei is at the forefront of this 5G expansion from China. I’m not sure why the United States is really scared about how China is leading in 5G, but my guess is that whoever leads the 5G network deployment across the world gets to call the shot for making a standard for 5G chipsets and much more. This means big money and market cornering.

Since 5G technology will change how wireless communication permeates throughout the global economy, new and old markets could churn out a lot of new money for the global economy. For an example, driverless cars will become more reliable, encouraging people to spend more money on driverless cars. Dumb cars without the support of 5G technology might get left behind, collecting dust somewhere while driverless cars sell like hotcakes.

Is China Leading In Building An AI Driven Future With 5G?

5G will be the thing of the coming years. If I’m understanding what is really going on, 5G can actually allow the plethora of devices to communicate with each other effortlessly. A quick search on Google yields that 5G is 20 times faster than 4G. Whether this is true or not, one thing is true is that devices can speak to each other way faster than before. This opens up more innovation and infrastructure demands.


The video above shows that China is heading in the direction where more machines will replace humans in labor-intensive jobs. The day when we need an extra pair of human hands may be over sooner than later because smarter machines with AI capability can actually think for themselves and carry themselves in jobs effortlessly. Nonetheless, AI machines without 5G will be like a pony just starts learning how to walk.

5G will allow AI machines to transfer data fast and constantly so that things can speed up even more for decision making, planning, communication and so much more. I think with 5G, self-driving car technology is much more believable since you can have many self-driving cars detect each other easier at once with reliable faster 5G data transfer. Furthermore, smart highways and roads are going to get better and more fitting for self-driving cars because 5G will allow faster communication between the cars and the traffic infrastructures.

If you’re guessing I don’t know what I’m talking about, you may be right. After all, 5G is so new and I haven’t seen it firsthand or use it in real life. Nonetheless, according to the information I could Google, 5G is 20 times faster than 4G. Right now I’m using 4G on my smartphone but I think 4G is already quite fast. I can imagine how crazier it could get if I got 5G.

A day ago I briefly encountered an article which described how 5G could destroy the need for the cloud. Then I briefly read over the article’s comments that displeased how the article’s author was too lacking of knowledge since the commenters didn’t see how 5G could destroy the cloud since the cloud is about centralization of data storage.

Personally though, I don’t see how centralizing storage like the cloud could go away since data redundancy is always a priority, especially in the age of AI which is driven by data. Of course, all bets are off when AI becomes self-conscious since such AI needs no human data to drive its own logic. Until then, the cloud stays important.

I also think that 5G could allow the decentralization of networks to become a thing too! How come? Local devices and storages will be able to talk faster to any other storage and device across the world — destroying the needs of having to plan and engineer a network that is catering to the importance of distance. Although we already in the age of information where distance isn’t as relevant as the 19th century for communication, but 5G may make distance even more irrelevant when it comes to data communication.

Basically, instead of waiting for minutes for a movie to be downloaded onto your device, you may only have to wait for a few seconds to have your movie when you use the 5G network. 5G data can cross secure communication channel much faster and more reliable since faster data transfer allows faster data integrity check and whatnot. Perhaps, we could see shopping, banking, and other important financial related activities across the world on the world wide web to be more reliable and faster — better experience overall!

In summary, I think 5G will be awesome! I would love to see not only cellular network but also home network to be able to transfer speed that is as fast as 5G or better. This way, everything will be on the same pace and everyone will be using faster Internet speed. What’s not to like when you can get a whole 4K movie to be downloaded in a few seconds, right?
