With the developing technology, the demand for the use of mobile communication is also increasing. It takes time to establish a standard for mobile communications. The increase in the number of devices using mobile communication and the technological diversity bring the need for faster communication in this regard. With the 5G mobile communication network being tested in certain regions, studies on 6G have also accelerated. In this study, we researched the potential trends and applications of the 6G mobile communication network.
