Samsung files new patent application for 3D displays.

In an impetus to 5G deployment, Samsung Electronics on Tuesday showcased here how its solutions can enable a variety of 5G-powered business models and scenarios for smart agriculture, home broadband services and smart cities in India.

According to South Korean major, smart agriculture will be a key focus area when 5G services are rolled out in India.


The 5G use cases for smart agriculture will revolve around sensors and devices on the farm that can provide information on soil moisture, nutrients, spoilage and other aspects of farming.

“Making the world a better place for humans is our focus. We want to make people’s life more efficient,” said Claudia Park, Director, Networks for Samsung Electronics.

She pointed out that with multiple use cases across various fields, 5G is the new frontier.

In collaboration with the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), Samsung announced last week that it will commence the first large-scale 5G trials in India in the first quarter of next year.

According to the company, “the government is very keen on 5G use cases around agriculture, considering that farming is one of the mainstays of the Indian economy”.


Since 2012, Samsung has been a key partner of the Indian telecommunications industry.

Samsung has been also selected by leading operators in The US such as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint for a 5G roll-out while it will commence 5G in Korea starting December.

In India, the company is a key provider of network infrastructure for Reliance Jio which has successfully built a large mobile network within a short period of time.

The Jio-Samsung 4G LTE network handles over 90 petabytes of data traffic every day, equivalent to 600 billion photographs shared on social media in a day.

Since 2012, Samsung has been a key partner of the Indian telecommunications industry.

According to Samsung, the company will deliver its 4G LTE solutions to 99 per cent of the Indian population by Diwali in partnership with Reliance Jio.

Logs cut from virgin Amazon rain forest are placed in a pile, in Brazil's northeastern Amazon region, February 11, 2008.

GENEVA — The battle to stem climate change may be lost as new information indicates the Amazon rain forest is turning from a carbon sink – or area that absorbs CO2 – into a source of carbon dioxide, the World Meteorological Organization warns.

The latest edition of the WMO's Greenhouse Gas Bulletin reports emissions of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide once again broke all records last year.

Let us educate each other that we are all beautiful in our way and don't need to fit in the so-called standards set by our draconian society.

Receiving compliments is something that a majority of us enjoy. Compliments, after all, make us feel good about ourselves. Sometimes compliments intended to be flattering turn out to be a tremendous turn-off, and in some cases, they are insulting. 'Beauty with brains is one of those compliments. So, is 'beauty with brains' a compliment? Without further ado, I would confidently say- NO! It doesn't matter what your gender, colour, or identity is. The answer is clearly a no.

Beauty with a brain suggests that you can only have one of these qualities and that you are an 'exception' if you possess both. "Oh, Wow! You are a beauty with brains" is a phrase that women often hear. This statement is used when a female exhibits characteristics that indicate she is intelligent. People are taken aback if they see a wise and beautiful woman because women are stereotyped to be either beautiful or brainy. The concern with this is that it is naturally assumed that men are intelligent. Women, on the other hand, are supposed to have a natural beauty. If she isn't attractive according to the norms laid down by society, it is expected that she would at the very least be intelligent. When someone manages to be both, it is regarded as a significant accomplishment.
