Download and browsing speeds dozens of times faster than the current network, broad connectivity and very low latency. The promise of 5G looks like something from the future, a technology that will take a long time to arrive - but this is not true, since all operators have already started their tests in Brazil, and experiencing this novelty is just a matter of being in the right place , like phone cell and accessories some.

Strictly speaking, 5G technology only officially arrives in Brazil after the frequency auction 700 MHz, 2,3 GHz, 3,5 GHz and 26 GHz by the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel). This should only happen in May or June 2021. However, several telephone operators are conducting tests with the new generation network connection cell in other bands of the spectrum - and ultra speed can already be experienced in some cities in Brazil.

To this end, companies launched their networks 5G within existing frequencies, based on a technology called DSS (dynamic spectrum sharing). Thus, it is possible to dynamically share the 3G and 4G spectrum not used to provide the 5G service.

Brasília is the most “covered” city for now. All four major operators in Brazil - Tim, Vivo, Clear e Oi - launched 5G DSS tests in the federal capital. Naturally, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro also have points with ultra speed, as well as Belo Horizonte, Salvador, Curitiba, Belém, Goiânia, Manaus, Porto Alegre, São Luís, Rio Verde (GO), Campinas (SP), Guarulhos (SP ), Santo André (SP), Santos (SP), São Bernardo do Campo (SP) and São Caetano do Sul (SP).

5G auction should take place in the second half of 2, predicts Anatel

Initial tests point to speeds between just over 100 Mbps up to 400 Mbps - which is already faster than the best 4G phone network. However, as in the 5G DSS the spectrum does not have a continuous and dedicated band, the experience is not yet "pure".

The 5G will allow a data transmission rate for phones up to hundreds of times higher than the current one, already in the house of gigabytes per second, and a (theoretical) latency of up to 1 millisecond - currently, with 4G, latency is close to 80 milliseconds. In tests conducted last week, Australian telephone operator Telstra and Qualcomm reached the 5 Gbps mark using a network with commercial technology and a single cell phone.

But it is only possible to enjoy that speed with a “5G ready” device, that is, one that is already compatible with the new technology. In Brazil, Motorola offers in its portfolio three smartphones that are ready for the provisional network: motorola edge, moto g 5g, moto g 5g plus e motorola edge plus.

In addition to compatibility with the 5G network, motorola edge draws attention due to its distinctive design. The OLED screens of the devices have curved edges on the sides with exclusive features. The phone has a Snapdragon 765 chipset, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage internal and 4.500 mAh battery with TurboPower charger.

In the middle range, the moto g 5G and moto g 5G plus bring accessibility to the ultra fast network. The smartphones feature a 6,7-inch FullHD + screen and a battery 5.000 mAh, with fast charging of 20W.

The moto g 5G plus features a Snapdragon 765 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage - expandable to 512 GB via microSD card. The moto g 5G is based on the Snapdragon 750G processor, accompanied by 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, expandable to 1 TB with microSD cards.
