  1. UHD Video on Mobile Devices (57%)
    UHD stands for ultra high definition videos, which are 4K and 8K resolutions. With high speeds of 5G, you can expect 8K videos to stream smoothly over the internet.
  2. VR Entertainment Applications (45%)
    Virtual Reality is an advanced computer application where users can visit a computer-generated virtual world and interact with other users. VRs require a massive amount of data transmission at the fastest possible speeds.
  3. 3D Video Streaming (44%)
    3D videos require additional information to communicate extra depth. Therefore, for smooth streaming of 3D movies and videos, you need ultra-fast internet speeds that 5G aims to provide.
  4. AR Entertainment (37%)
    AR stands for Augmented Reality, which merges the world around you with the virtual world. For example, you may want to know how your new couch looks in your living room, and an AR app can show you that in real time.

Other Predicted Use Cases for 5G

  • Edge Computing technologies will benefit from the 5G’s ultra-low latencies. Devices will reduce their access to resources from central servers and use edge computing resources; edge computing uses AI and IoT combined.
  • Cloud Gaming is another application that benefits from ultra-low latency and high speeds. People won’t have to buy high-end computers anymore; they can stream games without installing them on their low-end computers via high-speed internet. 
  • Several Industrial Applications of 5G also may be possible that uses the AI and IoT capability of 5G internet:
    • Doctors would be able to perform remote diagnostics and surgery.
    • Physical stores may not exist; you may be able to purchase things online and get them automatically delivered using drones. 
    • Regularly visiting remote agricultural farms may be expensive and impractical for large-scale cultivation. Therefore, remotely monitored agriculture may be necessary, and low latency high speed 5G networks may make it possible. 
    • Manufacturing processes can become completely automated, starting the fourth industrial revolution.

In conclusion, 5G may bring us more efficient healthcare, industry, and shopping experience, reducing expense and increasing accessibility.
