Samsung announces an even cheaper 5G phone

13th October 2020
"The Galaxy A42 5G is Samsung’s latest mid-range offering"

Samsung has announced the Galaxy A42 5G, the latest in its lineup of more reasonably priced and lower-specced A-series phones. The A42 is now Samsung’s cheapest phone with 5G, selling for £349 (about $455 USD). That puts it £80 below the Galaxy A51 5G, which was previously the cheapest way to buy into Samsung’s 5G lineup at £429 (or priced at $500 USD in the US).

The Galaxy A42 uses the Snapdragon 750G, a middle-of-the-pack processor that was just announced by Qualcomm last month. It’s supposed to be a step up from the Snapdragon 730G, seen in phones like the Pixel 4A, but it isn’t quite as powerful as the Snapdragon 765G, seen in the Pixel 4A 5G and OnePlus Nord.
The phone has a 6.6-inch OLED display with a teardrop cut out for a 20-megapixel camera at the top, 4GB to 8GB of RAM depending on the model, 128GB of storage expandable by MicroSD, a 5,000 mAh battery, and a fingerprint sensor built into the screen. On the back, there are four cameras: a 48 megapixel wide, 8 megapixel ultrawide, a 5-megapixel macro, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor for creating portrait effects.

It comes in three colors — black, gray, and white —  each with a dense grid pattern on the back that darkens in stages as it rises up the phone. The phone launches in the UK on November 6th. 

Samsung’s Galaxy A42 will compete closely with OnePlus’ Nord, which sells for £379, or just £30 more. For that extra £30, the Nord includes a faster processor, more RAM, a 90Hz display, and a second selfie camera, and it’s received generally positive reviews, too. That said, it’s likely the A42’s price will drop — the Galaxy A51 5G is already on sale in the US for $325, or $175 off, which makes it even cheaper than the A42 while the sale lasts.

Nokia has declared more than 3,000 patent families as essential for 5G, less than six months

24th March 2020
"Nokia today announced that it has declared more than 3,000 patent families to the ETSI as essential for the 5G standard, reflecting its continuing leadership and strong momentum in cellular technology R&D and standardization. "

Nokia today announced that it has declared more than 3,000 patent families to the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) as essential for the 5G standard, reflecting its continuing leadership and strong momentum in cellular technology R&D and standardization. 

Driven by world-class inventions from the renowned Nokia Bell Labs, which has invented many of the foundational 5G technologies that are commercial today, Nokia has played a leading role in pioneering key technologies for 5G, working with the 3GPP organization to establish 5G standards and enabling the rollout of 5G networks. 3GPP is a partnership of seven standards development organizations including ETSI. Nokia had a key role in driving the first set of globally interoperable 5G standards to completion and is now contributing towards the next set of standards. Through its research innovation and standardization leadership, Nokia enabled the ecosystem development for 5G technologies, paving the way for consumers and industries to have access to 5G faster and smoothly.
 
Marcus Weldon, Nokia Chief Technology Officer and President of Nokia Bell Labs said: “Nokia has defined many of the fundamental technologies used in virtually all mobile devices and digital systems and networks, and these inventions are critical to the new Industrial Internet of Things era. We standardize these inventions to allow widespread utilization and adoption. The benefits of 5G are initially in massive amounts of new capacity for consumers, but as the new technology and network architecture develops, it will enable new applications for enterprises and industrial businesses, with end-to-end 5G networks forming the critical fabric for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, with Nokia Bell Labs once again at the heart of this revolution.”

Jenni Lukander, President of Nokia Technologies, said: “I am thrilled that our R&D efforts are creating new opportunities for the consumer and industrial technology ecosystem, as the 5G era gathers momentum. As an inventor for the long-term, Nokia is able to innovate for a 5G future because of the fair reward we earn through licensing the standardized technologies created from our extensive R&D investments. This virtuous cycle creates vast new potential in 5G technologies, and I am excited for the possibilities ahead.”

Nokia’s contributions in innovation and standardization are the product of over €129bn of investment into research and development over the past two decades, and approximately €4.4bn R&D expenses last year alone. With the latest declarations, the portfolio of Nokia cellular standard-essential patents (SEPs) declared to one or more of the 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G standards spans more than 3,400 patent families, of which more than 3,000 are relevant to 5G standards. This SEP portfolio has more than doubled in size over the past five years, with Nokia having a leading market share. Nokia Bell Labs produces the majority of these SEPs, and Nokia Technologies business manages and licenses this patent portfolio, with more than 200 licensees, including most major smartphone vendors and many automotive brands.
 
Beyond radio networks and technologies, Nokia’s end-to-end approach to 5G includes the fronthaul, backhaul and optical transport networking systems. Nokia Bell Labs recently announced a new world record in fiber optics to enable faster and higher capacity 5G networks for the future. Researchers at Nokia Bell Labs set the world record for the highest single carrier bit rate at 1.52 Terabits per second (Tbit/s) over 80 km of standard single-mode fiber – the equivalent of simultaneously streaming 1.5 million YouTube videos – and four times the market’s previous capabilities of approximately 400 Gigabits per second. These innovations demonstrate Nokia’s ability to develop end-to-end technologies for the 5G era that meet the ever-growing data, capacity and latency demands of industrial Internet of Things and consumer applications.
 
The 5G standardization process is managed by 3GPP. Within 3GPP, the technical specifications for 5G communications have been developed collaboratively, selecting the best technologies from those contributed by a range of innovators. Products which comply with the standard can work interoperably with those from other manufacturers, increasing consumer choice.
