Five 5G myths to dispel

Five 5G myths to dispel

Many Filipinos, particularly gamers, are enthusiastic about the rapid acceptance of 5G and the introduction of inexpensive 5G smartphones like the Infinix ZERO 5G, as they anticipate speeds up to 10 times faster than 4G and a smoother gaming experience. Here are five common misconceptions about 5G that Filipinos should be aware of.

Myth 1: 5G speed works on 4G smartphones
Fact: You need a 5G smartphone to enjoy #BeyondTheSpeed

Filipinos will require smartphones that support 5G’s better internet speeds, broader coverage, expanded capacity, and ultra-low latency to get the full 5G experience. However, the high cost of early 5G equipment has been a deterrent. Infinix just unveiled the ZERO 5G, the company’s first 5G smartphone, which features a powerful MediaTek Dimensity 900 processor, 8GB RAM+128GB storage, 6.78″ FHD+ 120Hz display, 48MP camera with 30x zoom, and 5000mAh battery with 33W fast-charge. ZERO 5G is one of the most cheap 5G mobile gaming phones available today, with a price tag of Php 11,990.

Myth 2: 5G is all about mobile internet speed
Fact: 5G offers low latency in data transmission set to revolutionize smartphones and computers, even industrial robots.

While 5G is more powerful than 4G, it isn’t always the case that the former would deplete a phone’s battery faster than the latter. For example, 5G may use more battery life if it is having trouble finding a reliable and steady signal, but 4G may also use more battery life due to slower data transfer than 5G. On the plus side, certain 5G technologies will alleviate these difficulties.

The high-performance 6nm MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset in the Infinix ZERO 5G enhances the phone’s battery life after long hours of gaming. If 5G is not accessible in the area, it includes an intelligent feature that transitions from 5G to 4G and vice versa.

Myth 4: 5G is unsafe
Fact: There are already a growing number of 5G-ready cybersecurity measures

There are fears that 5G will make consumers more vulnerable to attack due to its multiple virtual networks, radio access network slicing, and substantial reliance on software. Cybersecurity measures, on the other hand, are evolving in tandem with the sophistication of cyberattacks. Businesses and consumers have already won half the battle by taking these procedures to prevent data leaks.

Myth 5: COVID-19 spreads through 5G networks / COVID-19 vaccines include 5G chips
Fact:  No truth at all.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there has been no causal link established between wireless technology exposure and detrimental health effects. Please get vaccinated as soon as possible if you haven’t already.
