Samsung is working on some interesting items but the revelation that the company has a 60GHz WiFi connection in the pipeline is perhaps one of the more exciting innovations to come from the South Korean company.

Samsung has revealed that their WiFi tech should be able to transfer data on wireless networks at a rate of 4.6Gbps (576MB per second).

The speed isn’t new, it’s the basis for the 802.11ad wireless standard that will hopefully take over from the 802.11ac standard that is only now seeing more widespread use. The 802.11ad connection has had it’s issues, ones that Samsung claims to have overcome.

As a result, we might be seeing the hyper-speed wireless tech in Samsung products as soon as 2015, though the company hasn’t given an indication of when next year we might see it.

Samsung’s Head of DMC R&D Kim Chang Yong said in a statement “Samsung has successfully overcome the barriers to the commercialization of 60GHz millimeter-wave band Wi-Fi technology, and looks forward to commercializing this breakthrough technology.”

“New and innovative changes await Samsung’s next-generation devices, while new possibilities have been opened up for the future development of Wi-Fi technology.”
