Launched in 2019, Wi-Fi 5 is already popularized and is present in most smartphones sold in Brazil, allowing operation at a second frequency with even more speed. Wi-Fi 6, meanwhile, was announced in 2019 and brought general improvements to the technology. Wi-Fi 6E is an evolution, allowing a third operating range to provide even more advantages over previous protocols.
- Motorola mobile phones compatible with Wi-Fi 6 and 6E in Brazil
- Wi-Fi 6 and 6E compatible Samsung Galaxy mobile phones and tablets in Brazil
These latest technologies are still coming to smartphones, and there are few that offer these new features, generally being the high-end and more expensive devices. Of course, just like you need a compatible cell phone, it’s important to have a router that supports this feature.
Wi-Fi 6 is the latest generation of wireless internet connection, but like Wi-Fi 5, it operates on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies, i.e. dual-band. Thus, spectrum congestion and interference can still occur. However, one of the biggest differences is the fact that Wi-Fi 6 has much higher bandwidth, 9.6 Gbps, compared to 3.5 Gbps for Wi-Fi 5.
