Samsung’s Galaxy S10 received the ‘Best Wi-Fi Innovation’ award for its intelligent Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi 6 innovations. This makes Galaxy S10 the first smartphone to receive this award.
Galaxy S10 makes use of machine learning that ensures the device is connected to a safe and stable Wi-Fi. If it finds that the Wi-Fi is unsecured, the phone switches to LTE connectivity. Galaxy S10s Intelligent Wi-Fi feature allows the device to quickly detect weaker Wi-Fi signals in places like elevators, allowing it to transition from Wi-Fi to LTE connectivity much more quickly. Upon connecting to a new network, the function even allows the device to analyze traffic patterns and notify users if the network is suspicious, thus protecting them from dangers such as phishing and malware attacks.
Besides this, the new Wi-Fi 6 standard is also supported by Galaxy S10. Wi-Fi 6 provides download boosts and upload speeds by up to 20 percent compared to previous generations of Wi-Fi.
The WBA Industry Awards have been honoring remarkable developments in Wi-Fi ecosystems globally for the past seven years. The ‘Best Wi-Fi Innovations’ category acknowledges network operators and technology companies whose solutions are post-deployment, and “recognizes and celebrates innovations and deployments with Wi-Fi, which enable seamless and secure support, greater interoperability and/or transformational benefits to customers.”
