MediaTek does a lot of work, developing components for laptops running Windows as well as smart TVs in addition to chipsets for the phone. In addition, the company is working on components that support the Wi-Fi 7 standard, which may appear in the devices next year, according to the company’s optimistic predictions.
Wi-Fi 7, also known as IEEE 802.11be, will be an enhanced version of the existing Wi-Fi 6 (IEEE 802.11ax) standard. It is currently planned that Wi-Fi 7 will allow the use of 320 MHz channels, will be supported by 4K quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) technology and the multiuser resource unit (MRU) functions. It also does this so that you can use the 2.4, 5, and 6 GHz bands currently supported by Wi-Fi 6 in the same way.
Theoretically, the new features will be able to provide a 2.4-fold increase in speed over the current Wi-Fi 6 standard, although interference from other wireless connections will reduce this value somewhat.
Returning to MediaTek, the Taiwanese company has announced that two demos of the Wi-Fi 7 standard have also been unveiled to industry partners. The published press release states that the company has been involved in the development of the standard from the very beginning and will be among the first to apply it. They predict the very first Wi-Fi 7 compatible products will hit store shelves in 2023.
If we want to simplify things, MediaTek has announced that they are working on the technology, it is still being tested, and it was actually the first official announcement to include the new standard. Although MediaTek obviously hopes to produce components with Wi-Fi 7 support sometime in 2023, finalization of the standard itself is still only expected in 2024.
