Samsung Electronics showcased its 5G technology capabilities to the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi last week during his two-day visit to Seoul.

H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan toured the company’s main manufacturing lines as part of plans to increase Samsung’s presence in the UAE and wider Middle East.

The tour took place ahead of a summit with President Moon Jae-in on Wednesday and marked the second meeting between Samsung Electronics Vice Chair Lee Jae-yong and H.H. Sheikh Mohammed in the last two weeks following a February meeting in Abu Dhabi.

Ahead of Expo 2020 in Dubai, the UAE’s largest telecom operator Etisalat will build 300 5G towers and develop 600 5G sites throughout 2019.

The new generation of mobile network technology is believed to be 10 times faster than a 4G network.

Samsung Electronics is rumoured to be in talks to acquire US semiconductor foundry GlobalFoundries, in which Abu Dhabi’s Advanced Technology Investment Co. (ATIC) is the largest shareholder with a 90 percent share.
