5G, a new lease of Life to Smartphone-based AR/VR Experiences
The advent of 5G technology is a major game-changer for the mobile industry. With its lightning-fast speeds and low latency, 5G promises to revolutionise smartphone-based augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) experiences.
AR/VR technology has traditionally been limited by high latency, low bandwidth and limited device memory. With 5G, these limitations are eliminated, and AR/VR applications can now offer smooth and immersive experiences. With 5G, users can expect to experience faster loading times, higher resolutions and more interactive immersive experiences.

Room for more immersion
5G also opens up new opportunities for developers to create more immersive experiences. 5G-powered AR/VR applications can enable users to interact with the virtual environment in ways that weren’t previously possible. For example, 5G can enable real-time tracking of user movements in a virtual space and can also enable the inclusion of real-world elements like objects and characters.
5G can help in the adoption of AR/VR by enabling faster loading times, higher resolutions and more interactive immersive experiences. 5G can also enable developers to create more immersive experiences by enabling real-time tracking of user movements in a virtual space and the inclusion of real-world elements like objects and characters. 5G-enabled AR/VR applications can also be used to facilitate remote learning, telemedicine, virtual conferences and virtual tourism. By providing users with a more immersive and interactive experience, 5G can help to drive higher adoption of AR/VR technology.
Low Latency and Higher Bandwidth
5G technology has the potential to revolutionize the way we experience AR/VR applications. With its low latency and increased bandwidth, 5G can enable developers to create more immersive and interactive experiences, and enable users to interact with the virtual world in ways never before possible.
Accelerated Adoption of AR/VR
5G technology can accelerate the adoption of AR/VR by providing faster speeds and reduced latency. 5G networks are able to offer speeds up to 10 times faster than 4G networks, which is essential for a smooth VR experience. 5G also helps to reduce motion sickness and improve the overall user experience. The ability for 5G networks to provide wider bandwidths also makes it possible for multiple users to connect and interact in a virtual space simultaneously.
The AR-VR-based education learning demonstration by our Prime Minister during the 5G launch at Pragati Maidan on Oct 22nd 22 demonstrates the Government’s seriousness regarding the adoption of this technology.
Though 5G has countless applications, the immediate use cases are limited, which could become a stumbling block to India’s 5G buildout. Many solutions and 5G tools need to be innovated to put this powerful network into use. Most of the available solutions are either too exorbitant in price or inaccessible to use. The Government needs to encourage and incentivise ingenious minds and start-ups to work on feasible solutions to make the best out of 5G. For instance, The Indian start-up TechXR Innovations has devised India’s most affordable XR controller-SenseXR, which proves to be a key to the metaverse for the common man of India. All you need is a SenseXR, a simple VR box and a smartphone, and you’re all ready to experience augmented and virtual reality. The device not only helps in experiencing but also helps in content creation in Augmented and Virtual Reality. The device has the potential to play a major role in making technology affordable and accessible to students from rural backgrounds.
India needs more such frugal innovation to use the complete potential of the AR/VR technology with the onset of 5G. Then only 5G can prove to be a new lease of life for smartphone-based AR/VR experiences.
