Re: Real 5G vs Fake 5G
Mitch Wagner

There is a general consensus on the "Fake" 5G standard among Qualcomm, Huawei, and Ericsson.

However, only one company has a near operational "Real" 5G standard ready to go, so it's going to be a take it or leave at the 3GPP meeting in June 2018.

Re: Real 5G vs Fake 5G
Since the real 5G standard has yet to be laid out, anything claming to be real 5G or close to real 5G is mythical!

Like most tech industry terms, 5G seems likely to mean whatever the marketing people decide it will mean, probably some combination of high speed and programmable interfaces.

Sure, if Ericsson can convince FCC to release 15 Ghz spectrum for 5G services. 

But 15 Ghz spectrum is unavailable in the US, meaning that 15 Ghz would be a Euro-only 5G standard if pushed out. And Europe will be the last developed market to have a wide deployment of 5G, meaning that the 15 Ghz 5G standard is dead on arrival.

Real 5G vs Fake 5G
This the second article to use the term Real 5G.

http://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/telecom/wireless/real-5g-will-broadcast-above-6-gigahertz-analyst-says

In fact, some companies have begun to concentrate their 5G efforts on these kinds of sub-6 GHz improvements. Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has said that sub-6GHz bands will be "the primary working frequency" for 5G and Qualcomm recently announced a new 5G radio prototype focused on the same batch of frequencies.

But Téral is irked by companies who dub these developments 5G. He says only advancements at higher frequencies (those above 6 GHz) should count as "real 5G," because they would represent a paradigm shift for improving data rates and latency on future wireless networks. He argues that sub-6 GHz improvements incorporated into existing 4G and 4G LTE networks are simply business as usual.

Huawei, Qualcomm, and Ericsson - Fake 5G

Samsung - Real 5G
