Nokia CEO says 6G will arrive by 2030 and AR glasses will overtake phone


Mehdi Bennis, an associate professor at University of Oulu (Finland), is a researcher on 6G.


Nokia CEO Pekka Linmark anticipates that mobile 6G networks will be up and running by the end if the decade. However, he isn’t optimistic about the smartphone being the “most common interface” at the time.

Lundmark spoke on Tuesday at Davos’ World Economic Forum, where he said that 6G will be available for commercial use by 2030.

Nokia, based in Finland is responsible for building telecoms networks which allow smartphones and other internet-enabled devices communicate.

When will the world stop using smartphones and start using smart glasses or other wearable devices? Lundmark answered that it would happen before the arrival of 6G.

He stated that “By then the smartphone interface we are familiar with today won’t be as common” “Many of those things will be integrated directly into our bodies.”

Although he didn’t specify what exactly he meant, some companies such as Elon Musk’s Neuralink are currently working to producing electronic devices that can be implanted into the brainThese chips can be implanted into the fingers of people and then used to transmit information between machines and humans. Chips can also be implanted in the fingers of people to allow them access certain things.

There are also U.S. tech companies like Meta, GoogleAnd MicrosoftThey are currently developing augmented reality headsets which could eventually replace the smartphone.

Ruth Porat from Google, the CFO of Google, said that the biggest advantage of augmented realities is the ability to address problems right here on Earth.

She said, “It will involve things such as having glasses and being capable of translating what you say with glasses.” “Those two are very close.”

Google had previously released an AR headset, Google Glass. However, it was pulled after not gaining traction.

They also talked about the potential and challenges presented by the metaverse.

Lundmark believes that by 2030 there will be “digital Twin of Everything” which will demand “massive computing resources”.

Lundmark stated that networks must be at least 100 or 1,000 times faster to send all of the bits required by the metaverse.
