Understanding Frequency in Smartphones
In a smartphone, frequencies are used to communicate with cell towers and access the internet, make calls, send text messages, and more. The radio frequencies used by a smartphone are determined by the type of network it is connecting to.
For example, a smartphone may support both 2G and 3G frequencies, which allow it to connect to both older and newer generations of cellular networks. Some smartphones also support 4G and 5G frequencies, which offer faster internet speeds and more reliable connections.
When a smartphone is connected to a cell tower, it uses a specific frequency to communicate with the tower, and the tower uses a different frequency to communicate back to the device. The specific frequencies used can vary depending on the type of network and carrier, as well as the location and other factors.
Hope this helps!
