MediaTek and Samsung introduced its first 8K QLED TV before the world. The company launched the Samsung 8K QLED Y20 model (Q950, Q900) that comes equipped with MediaTek Wi-Fi 6 chipset. The new range of 8K TVs starts from 55 inches and goes up to 98 inches in size. Wi-Fi 6 is said to be the newest wireless standard with higher transmission throughout while saving on power, translating to smoother 8K streaming capabilities.
According to the company, the 8K delivers 4 times the resolution of 4K and 16 times the resolution of HD that transforms flat images into deeper for a more natural viewing experience.
