“The newly certified Wi-Fi 6E technology is designed to use 6GHz frequency in combination with the existing 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies,” Samsung said. Samsung’s statement clearly indicates how a better-integrated WiFi modem in a TV is going to be the new USP when it comes to TV sales.

“Now, select Samsung Neo QLED 8K TVs can support larger bandwidth loads, process faster multi-gigabit data, enable low latency, and provide reliable and secure connectivity.”

Samsung hopes its Neo QLED TVs with Wi-Fi 6E technology can boost sales from consumers who seek a better viewing experience with their over-the-top (OTT), virtual reality and gaming services, reports Yonhap news agency.

LG said its major TV models launched in 2021, including its 8K OLED TV and QNED TV using Mini LEDs, also earned Wi-Fi 6E certification recently.

What is Wi-Fi 6E TV?

According to a report in Sam Mobile, “Samsung’s next 8K TV will also be its first to feature Wi-Fi 6E support, offering connectivity across three vastly different bands.” The report also noted that “according to some newly surfaced product certification, the high-end smart TV in question will utilize a MediaTek wireless modem. That’s hardly a surprise, considering how much Samsung and MediaTek’s relationship has grown in recent years.”
