Samsung, in collaboration with MediaTek, has introduced a new smart TV, called the Samsung 8K QLED Y21. The 8K TV comes with Wi-Fi 6E enablement as its main attraction, making it the world’s first smart TV to get one. Samsung’s new smart TV works with MediaTek MT7921AU and that is why the TV supports Wi-Fi 6E, according to a press release. It also supports Bluetooth version 5.2, again for better connectivity. With Wi-Fi 6E, people will be able to view content faster, too, without interruptions.
It is suggested that Wi-Fi 6E be designed to utilize “uncongested” bandwidth in the 6 GHz spectrum for “faster multi-gigabit data, lower latencies, and the latest connection reliability and security features.”
Jerry Yu, Senior Corporate Vice President of MediaTek and General Manager of the Smart Devices Business Group, in a press release, said: “Consumers depend on fast and reliable connectivity, whether they are using their television to stream, play games or follow the workouts. Our collaboration with Samsung has been instrumental in bringing consumers the latest smart TV technology to support these uses and more. ”
This comes after Samsung and MediaTek announced the Wi-Fi 6-enabled 8K TV – the Samsung 8K QLED Y20 last year, which is a predecessor to the newly launched one.
The goal is to present the combination of better connectivity and a high-end viewing experience for maximum home entertainment. With this, MediaTek also aims to lead the premium smart TV segment globally.
However, we are missing more details about the new Samsung Smart TV. In addition, the information about its price and availability is also unknown.
