MediaTek expects first Wi-Fi 7 devices next year

MediaTek says that it has been working on the future Wi-Fi 7 standard for a while now and it even showcased the new tech to partners and key customers. The Wi-Fi 7 standard is an upgrade over the Wi-Fi 6 and offers about 2.4x speed boost.

The Wi-Fi standard will be able to utilize 320MHz channels, use 4K quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), multi-user resource unit (MRU) and will still work on the existing 2.4GHz, 5GHz and 6GHz frequencies.

The first devices with Wi-Fi 7 support will hit the market in 2023, says MediaTek. Those will be based on a draft specification though, since the standard itself won’t be certified by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) until 2024.
