Nokia Bell Labs, the industrial research and scientific development company owned by Nokia, officially announced that it owns 2,000 patents in the 5G regime. It’s hard to imagine the prestige the Finnish company could gain after the imminent expansion of 5G service throughout the world. There’s a good chance it will be even compared with the prestige from the 1998-2006 period when Nokia undeniably dominated the cell phone market.
Nokia received two critical patents. One is from over the Atlantic, more precisely the US authorities. The other one is from their own continent, Europe. They can be identified by the patent numbers US9,338,785B2 and EP2848055B1 respectively.
The technologies covered by the two patents are described by Nokia as “network resources for smartphones, industrial devices and other equipment to access services with shorter latency, increased reliability, and higher throughput”.
Nokia also states that after obtaining the patents and creating the prototypes, they have been standardized in line with rules set by 3GPP, a nodal authority that has developed the standards of 5G service. Nokia announces that it is fully prepared to meet the requirements in the 5G field.
Nokia continues to release phones
In the current year, Nokia impressed the world with several phones, but on top stays the flagship Nokia 9 PureView. It packs 6 GB of RAM, 20 MP for the selfie camera, 5 x 12 MP for the rear camera, video recording in 2K, a Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 (10 nm) chipset, Octa-core (4×2.8 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4×1.7 GHz Kryo 385 Silver) CPU, Adreno 630 GPU, P-OLED 5.99 inches display with resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels, and Android 9 Pie/Android One as the operating system.
Only time will tell if the notorious Finnish company will fulfill its plan to dominate the 5G technology. Until now, 5G is available only for several countries, but it’s expected to expand a lot more.
