What does it take to access 5G? See prices for tech-compatible mobile phones – Negócios – Diário do Nordeste

The National Communications Agency (Anatel) announced this Tuesday (30) that on September 5 Fortaleza will receive “pure” 5G technology, also known as 5G SA (standalone) – currently the 5G offered by operators is 5G SA (non-standalone) . But what is required to take advantage of the new mark and what are the practical effects of modernity on the lives of the people of Fortaleza?

Professor at the Federal Institute of Ceará, Moacyr Regis, explains that in order to access 5G, the user must first have Smartphone compatible with technology. Anatel has published on its website a list of its 5G capable models and brands.

Regarding the chip, Regys notes that it would be interesting for the user to also have a 5G chip, which can be purchased from the operator. The chips currently in use with 4G technology will also support the new signal, but the new chips will allow the user to enjoy more widely the benefits offered by 5G, according to him.

For example, the 5G chip provides more security because it encrypts the data. “This new technology provides encryption within the device’s private chip, preventing hackers from accessing payment and address information in ‘plain text’ and making it available using encryption algorithms.”

“With the 4G chip — and the technology-capable device — the signal arrives, but not with all the benefits, because that’s the greater security that a 5G chip will bring,” the professor reinforces.

On the Anatel website, devices that are capable of operating 5G networks independently and non-independently are listed. Among those capable of “pure” 5G are the 12 Xiaomi models; Zenfone 7 Zenfone 8 Nokia G50 Moto G200 iPhone 12 (Mini, Pro, Pro Max) and Iphone 13 (Mini, Pro, Pro Max). See here the list of 5G mobile phones on the Anatel website.

In addition to Fortaleza, Recife and Natal will receive the technology on the fifth day, with a total of 15 Brazilian capitals covered by the new signal. At the meeting scheduled for Thursday (1), the launch of 5G SA in three other Brazilian cities should be announced.

What is 5G?

The fifth generation of mobile networks is the successor to 4G and promises faster Internet access. With 5G technology, an increase in speed, an increase in the number of connected devices in a given area, an increase in the amount of data transmitted per unit of the electromagnetic spectrum, and a decrease in the energy consumption of equipment are expected.

In the opinion of Moacyr Regys, a minority of consumers at Fortaleza currently have the technology in their mobile phones. “So the benefit to the population today, I think, will be very small, because those populations in general still don’t have access to this 5G-enabled smartphone.”
