The World’s first 5G phone

  Most people are familiar with 4G (LTE), but recently, 5G has been released. 5G networks are new mobile Internet connectivity networks, offering transmission speeds 100 times faster than 4G. This is why 5G Networks are called the era of downloading 1GB in 10 seconds. Samsung launched the Galaxy S10 5G for the first time, followed by Huawei, Xiaomi, LG, and others also have announced 5G phones.

  5G is currently in a testbed situation around the world and is expected to be launched worldwide by 2020. 5G technology is such a hot issue in the 21st century, and especially in Korea, it became an issue through commercializing a 5G network for the first time in the world. Even U.S.A. president, Donald Trump, declared that America must win the 5G network competition. With global corporations such as Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and more focusing on the Cloud business, people are paying attention to what changes will be made.

 

Japanese convenience store giving up 24-hour business

  In Japan, a growing number of convenience stores are closing late at night, even though they are very famous for their high quality foods. Japan’s top three convenience stores, 7-Eleven, Lawson, and Family Mart have been open 24 hours a day since the late 1970s.

  However, as the population is aging and rising, labor costs have led to a shortage of workers, complaints that they cannot operate 24 hours a day from convenience store owners have increased. According to the Mainichi, a Japanese newspaper, Japanese Family Mart will run short opening times from 16 to 20 hours a day, from 5 a.m. to 1a.m. or 7a.m. to 11.p.m at some stores, starting in June, 2019.

  The Avengers’ fourth film, Endgame, the final work of Marvel Cinematic Universe phase 3 (MCU), an American media franchise and shared universe that is centered on a series of superhero films (Wikipedia), was released on April 26, 2019 in Korea. After “Avengers: Infinity war, (2018)”, the Earth faced a desperate situation where only half of population has survived. Endgame is about the final war that will change the fate of the Avengers. Robert Downey Jr. of Iron Man, Jeremy Renner of Hawk Eye, and Brie Larson of Captain Marvel visited Korea on April 13 when the movie was about to be released, so expectation for Endgame increased.
