This research proposed a 1X4 patch antenna array for 5G Communication. The proposed antenna was designed to resonate at 28GHz frequency band. CST Microwave studio was used for the simulation of the antenna by employing Roger RT 5880 LZ with thickness and permittivity 0.762mm and 1.96 respectively as the substrate. The antenna was fed using a quarter-wave transformer to match its impedance to 50 ohms. The single patch resonates at 27.9GHz frequency with; a bandwidth of 1.87GHz, and a gain of 7.79dB. The addition of another element brought about an increment in the above-mentioned values. Furthermore, the implementation of the four element array configuration brought about the significant enhancement of values for bandwidth and antenna gain with maximum achievable gain of 13.5 dB. The design procedure, structure and simulation of the antenna are discussed in this paper.
