The glorious Mobile World Congress 2017 is here, an event full of delight for the tech lovers.

Taking the centre stage, Samsung, on Sunday unveiled Galaxy Book and the Galaxy Tab S3, along with an update for its Gear VR. Apparently, when many people were expecting an announcement of Samsung Galaxy S8, what came around was announcement of a brand new 5G Home router.

With sparse details and information, Samsung announced a 5G Home router that according to the company, can enable a top data rate of 1 Gbps. Samsung is currently running the 5G products in pre-commercial testing in the Korea, Japan and the US, “representing the final leg of a journey towards industry 5G adoption,” according to the company.

Trials of Samsung’s 5G devices will begin this year, but as mentioned above the company didn’t provide any information on a public roll out of the products.

The router will require placement in the user’s window, alongside one of the 5G radios also announced at the event. Samsung is also reportedly in talks with Verizon to render the network capabilities required for the products.

Last but not the least, the company also spoke about the possibility of a 5G capable smartphone by next year.
