Soon, all owners of 5G-enabled devices will be able to enjoy increased speeds and lower latency because Etisalat, UAE-based multinational telecom services operator, has joined forces with Ericsson, Swedish multinational networking and telecommunications company, to deploy 5G in UAE through millimeter wave (mmWave) small cell networks.
Once deployed, the network should be able to provide fiber-like speeds over the air, delivering data speeds of 4.2 Gbps and latency of 8 milliseconds (ms). Because 5G networks can support a greater number of connected devices than 4G networks, UAE residents can look forward to problem-free internet access even in crowded places, such as malls and stadiums.
“Etisalat has always been at the forefront of the telecom industry, and we continuously work to provide our customers with the best possible digital experience,” said Haitham AbdulRazzak, Chief Technology Officer at Etisalat.
“We look forward to supporting Etisalat in harnessing the opportunities that new technologies like 5G can present for the people of the UAE,” added Ekow Nelson, Vice President and Head of Global Customer Unit Etisalat at Ericsson MENA, in the official press release.
5G technology is positioned to become a key enabler of the UAE Vision 2021, which was launched by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to transition the country to a knowledge-based economy, promoting innovation and research and development.

All businesses that depend on reliable, secure, and fast internet connectivity will be able to reap its benefits to support remote workers, implement innovative Internet of Things solutions, and deliver immersive experiences to their customers.
5G connectivity additionally paves the way for smart cities, which can be imagined as pulsing digital ecosystems where countless sensors collect data to manage resources and infrastructure more efficiently. 5G will hopefully take the United Arab Emirates to another level of connectivity and innovation.
Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Event Will Take Place On August 11
In addition to 2 new foldable smartphones, you can also look forward to the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Buds 2.
After several leaks, Samsung has officially confirmed the date and time when its upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event will take place: August 11, 2021 at 10 AM EST.
Besides the confirmation, Samsung has rewarded its fans for their patience by releasing an official trailer that hints at the products that will soon be revealed in their full glory.
“Change is the only constant in the world of innovation. By driving new ideas forward and transforming existing experiences, it redefines the boundaries of what’s possible,” the official press release says. “As the excitement for the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked on August 11 continues to build, Samsung Electronics has released a trailer teasing the surprises that lie in wait for Galaxy fans.”
The products teased by the trailer are the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 (check out the complete leaked Galaxy device lineup). Both are foldable smartphones, but each targets different customers.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 folds along the vertical axis, and it’s expected to boast a huge 7.7-inch interior display and a smaller exterior display, giving users plenty of screen real estate for basic apps and multimedia alike. It could be Samsung’s first smartphone with an under-display camera, and it will certainly be powered by Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line processor.
As the name suggests, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 folds along the horizontal axis, allowing it to comfortably hide even inside the tiny pockets so many women’s pants come with. Just like its larger relative, it will come with flagship specifications, so playing the latest games or taking beautiful pictures at night shouldn’t be a problem.
In addition to the two foldable smartphones, you can also look forward to the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Buds 2.
How To Watch The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Event
The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event will be accessible only to online viewers, and you’ll be able to tune it either directly from Samsung.com or on YouTube.
