Extended Reality (XR) has been one of the ambitious research topics under development for several decades and today it is becoming mature enough to appear in the mass market. The replacement of smartphones with smaller wearable devices and headset mounted devices enables numerous novel use cases in consumer, engineering, industrial, and healthcare areas, as well as represents a foundation for upcoming Metaverse revolution. The successful adoption of XR requires support from the underlying 5G system, since XR introduce challenging requirements for radio mobile systems in terms of capacity and latency that do not perfectly fit into the existing classification of fifth-generation (5G) applications and services. Additionally, power saving needs of user devices result in a clear trade-off between capacity and energy consumption. In this talk, we will revise the main challenges discussed in 3GPP and possible solutions to fully support XR applications over 5G NR. In particular, we will highlight the trade-off between power-saving and capacity focusing on possible enhancements to power saving features.
