Samsung’s next generation Galaxy S10 series flagship smartphones are expected to ship out with support for the new WiFi 6 standard. Information about the wireless standard, which is also referred to as 802.11ax WiFi, was discovered inside an FCC filing made by Samsung.
The FCC filings are a necessary submission for any company that wish to market their devices in the US. In this case, the filings include a chart that shows the connectivity difference between three different Galaxy S10 models; The Galaxy S10+ (SM-G975U), Galaxy S10 (SM-G973U), and a Galaxy S10e (SM-G970U).
In regards to the latter model, it’s likely that the Galaxy S10e is going to be a more affordable version of the other two, and will only feature a dual main camera instead of the triple camera array that was initially reported.
The new WiFi 6 standard is a direct successor to the currently existing WiFi 5 standard, which is also known as 802.11ac. In terms of speed, WiFi 6 should theoretically be able to execute transfer speeds of approximately 1.1Gbps on the 2.4GHz spectrum and up to 4.8Gbps on the 5GHz spectrum.
Aside from the new WiFi standard, the same reports also point to the phones supporting reverse wireless charging. Turning the Galaxy S10 into a host battery and allowing other Qi-compatible devices to be wirelessly charged by it.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones are expected to be announced at the brand’s Unpacked event that will be happening on 20 February 2019 at San Francisco. Hopefully, we’ll have our answers to the
