5g wifiFast connectivity is what a customer looks for if he wants to watch an HD video or perform another action that needs a good and fast internet connection. Wi-Fi connections are getting better and better and the new standards are very high, but humans will also need better and better things in their lives. The new 5G Wi-Fi pushed the limits and became the best connection ever.

However, the technology introduced by Broadcom is still unused by the large world of smartphones. There are two exceptions: HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 which use the 802.11ac WiFi. The best thing is that Broadcom is creating 5G Wi-Fi combo chips for all kinds of devices. BCM4339 and BCM43162 will be used instead of BCM4335.

There are companies that are sampling the chips. They will be created in large numbers in the second half of the year and devices will have the chips already incorporated during the process of manufacturing. You will probably want to wait a little bit longer to buy a new device, if you want to have one with this feature already installed. I assure you will not regret if you choose to wait. Anyway, you can ask your friends who use HTC One or Samsung Galaxy S4 about it, if you want to make the right choice.
