Well, this is a first in the industry, Samsung said, and an achievement that unlocks a max download speed of 1.2 gigabits per second (Gbps).

Today, Samsung chose to set another record with a new Cat.18 LTE modem that offers 6CA with the ability to achieve download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps! The new technology is rated to offer peak downlink speed of up to 1.2Gbps. The new modem will allow users to download a two-hour movie in HD quality- in just ten seconds.

Samsung Galaxy S8 series and Xperia XZ Premium are those few flagship handsets which support Cat.16: (4CA) LTE technology with the max speed of 1000 Mbit/s. However, with the new technology coming into the market, carriers will possibly tighten their belts and start testing 6CA speeds to bring them into the market soon.

"1.2Gbps maximum downlink speed with 6CA support highlights Samsung's design capabilities and well-positions Samsung for the upcoming 5G era", said Woonhaing Hur, vice president of System LSI Protocol Development at Samsung Electronics. Users will also be able to enjoy buffer-less video calls and mobile live-broadcasting.
