Sony’s new console supports WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
It has been revealed once again via official databases used by the authorities to approve telecom equipment, such as a number of times with new Apple products such as the iPad and Watch.
Confirmed in Brazil
It is Anatel, the national telecom authorities in Brazil, who reveals that the PS5 wireless module is new enough to support WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
The module is manufactured by Foxconn and is already approved for use in the United States.
Does the Xbox Series X have Wifi 5 or 6, and what about Bluetooth?
The special thing this time, and it’s part including the fact that the prices have not been revealed (it’s not that long until November), is that we do not know if the Xbox Series X has WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
Many people probably want to cable the consoles, due to gigantic file sizes of over 100GB for many games, but it is nice to know if the console you prefer supports the fastest or the second-fastest WiFi standard, especially if you do not have the option of cable routing.
Another advantage is if both went for a completely open Bluetooth standard so that you can use what you want of the headset?
It would be a bit bad if Microsoft’s console, which the company rightly, in terms of CPU and GPU power, markets it as the fastest, if it downloads slower wirelessly. We’ll see, and expect that Microsoft has this under control.
