Overview: While fifth-generation (5G) communications are being rolled out worldwide, sixth-generation (6G) communications have attracted much attention from both the industry and the academia. Compared with 5G, 6G will have a wider frequency band, higher transmission rate, spectrum efficiency, greater connection capacity, shorter delay, wider coverage, and stronger anti-interference capability to satisfy various network requirements. In this paper, we present a survey of potential essential technologies in 6G. In particular, we will give an insightful understanding of the paradigms and applications of the future 6G wireless communications by introducing index modulation (IM), artificial intelligence (AI), intelligent reflecting surfaces (IRS), simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT), space-air-ground-sea integrated network (SAGSIN), terahertz (THz), visible light communications (VLC), blockchain-enabled wireless network, holographic radio, full-duplex technology (FD), Cell-Free Massive MIMO (CFmMM), and security and privacy problems behind technologies mentioned above.
