5G mobile network reveals new logo

The next wave of mobile phones might be a few years away, but at least the organisation that governs cellular standards has had the foresight to sort its branding early. Say hello to the minty fresh logo design for 5G, the data network that is, logically, set to supersede 4G in 2018.

Approved by telecoms standards organisation 3GPP, the new logo is distinct from previous 4G branding thanks to its colour scheme and unique square edged wave symbol. The new logo is also instantly recognisable, whereas the old symbols became bogged down under wording that was rather clumsily added to the design.
