Samsung Electronics has announced that a new research group focused on developing 6G networks will be launched in the UK.

Deployment is not expected until around 2030, but the new funding will create new roles in Samsung Research UK with applications already open. 

It will be based at the Samsung R&D institute UK located in Staines-upon-Thames. 

Sebastian Seung, president and head of Samsung Research said: “We envision that 6G will provide ultimate experiences for humans and everything through the next level of hyper-connectivity, and this idea serves as the foundation of our 6G vision.

Sunghyun Choi, EVP head of advanced communications research centre at Samsung Research added: “Considering the long history of collaboration in other areas including 5G standardisation, I am very happy to have SRUK as a member of Samsung’s 6G R&D. 

“We will work together to deliver the next hyper-connected experience to every corner of our customers’ lives in the 6G era.”
