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.

It also decreases the need for transporting elements from other cities and hence lowers the carbon footprint. For instance, at one of our weddings, we made use of sand art for a setup in Jodhpur. This helped promote local work while also being environmentally friendly with zero wastage of other materials.
