Yonhap News Agency, a Korean media outlet, is reporting that Samsung has "successfully developed a core technology of the fifth-generation network." The tech giant hopes to have 5G running on its mobile platforms by 2020. 

The new wireless technology will enable customers to access a stream of data faster than the current fourth-generation network and download an entire movie in less than a second, the world's largest smartphone maker said.

Under the new platform, users can download and upload data at speeds of up to tens of gigabits per second (Gbps), compared to 75 megabits per second (Mbps) posted by the fourth-generation long-term evolution (LTE) service.
