Samsung’s Neo QLED TVs are the world’s first TVs with Wi-Fi 6E
Samsung has been the world’s biggest TV brand for fifteen years in a row, and that’s not without a reason. The company consistently brings new and innovative features to its TVs. Last year, it became the world’s first brand to bring Wi-Fi 6 connectivity to its TVs. Now, the company has announced that it has become the first TV brand in the world to bring Wi-Fi 6E to its TVs.
The South Korean tech giant’s Neo QLED TVs—QN900A and QN800A—have become the first TVs in the world to receive the Wi-Fi 6E certification. In addition to 2.4GHz and 5GHz, Wi-Fi 6E uses the 6GHz band to improve data transfer speeds. The new Wi-Fi standard also delivers data with very low interference and latency, improving the user experience.
Wi-Fi 6E routers and Wi-Fi 6E-compatible smartphones (like the Galaxy S21 Ultra) have already hit the market. With 8K TVs now available from Samsung and other brands, Wi-Fi 6E will play a huge role in delivering 8K videos seamlessly via its increased data throughput. This new Wi-Fi standard also makes wireless VR gaming and 4K game streaming more reliable.
Younghun Choi, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said, “As the global leader in the TV industry, Samsung is proud to have achieved the world’s first Wi-Fi 6E certification on our TVs. With a growing set of immersive content experiences and features across the home, the certification provides Neo QLED 8K TV owners with even better access to the things they love to do.“Join the Discussion
