The design of a 28 GHz phased array antenna for future fifth generation (5G) mobile-phone applications has been presented in this paper. The proposed antenna can be implemented using low cost FR-4 substrates, while maintaining good performance in terms of gain and efficiency. This is achieved by employing a new air-filled slot-loop structure as the radiator. A prototype array consisting of ten radiator elements has been designed for concept validation. Both the radiation and total efficiencies of the antenna array are higher than -0.5 dB (90%) for the scanning range between 0o to 50o, while the gains are higher than 13 dB. In addition, the simulated and measured results show that the antenna has the S11 response less than -10 dB in the frequency range of 27 to 29 GHz.
