Samsung’s first smartphone with Wi-Fi 6 (also known as Wi-Fi ax) wireless connectivity was the Galaxy S10. Since then, the company started adding Wi-Fi 6 to most of its high-end smartphones and tablets. Recently, the Galaxy A52s 5G became the South Korean firm’s first mid-range device to feature Wi-Fi 6.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra was among the first smartphones in the world to feature even faster wireless connectivity with Wi-Fi 6E (6GHz), and Samsung will no doubt continue to launch new devices that support either Wi-Fi 6 or Wi-Fi 6E in the future.

To help you find out which Galaxy device supports the latest Wi-Fi versions, we’ve created the handy lists below so you can make an informed decision when you’re out to buy a new phone or tablet. Do note that you will also need to buy a Wi-Fi 6/6E compatible router.

Wi-Fi 5 vs Wi-Fi 6/6E

Compared to Wi-Fi ac (also known as Wi-Fi 5), Wi-Fi 6 offer faster uploads and download speeds (up to 9.6Gbps). This results in faster downloads, improved video streaming (especially 4K), better web browsing, and a more reliable and responsive gaming experience. Unlike Wi-Fi 5, which works only on the 5GHz band, Wi-Fi 6 works on 2.4GHz as well, resulting in faster speeds far away from the Wi-Fi access point.

Wi-Fi 6 also increases the capacity of routers and allows them to service more devices without slowing down. Wi-Fi 6E, meanwhile, brings even faster speeds, lower latency, and less interference than Wi-Fi 6 as it works on a new 6GHz band instead of the congested 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands as previous versions of Wi-Fi.
