The first is the Spatial Modulation, a method for increasing the amount of data transfer without increasing bandwidth requirements. Both are FBMC (Filter Bank Multicarrie), this is a new way of dividing the carrier signal into different channels in the same frequency.

Both of these technologies are tested on a 3.5GHz frequency that is close to the limit of the current 4G LTE network. With high frequency, this network is not expected to have pretty good coverage, especially in rural or wilderness. But this is good enough when in urban areas.

Samsung has achieved great progress while testing 5G networks. Rumored that the 5G network technology can be used commercially in the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.
