PlayStation 5 certified in Brazil for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1



PlayStation 5 certified in Brazil for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1

Sony has filed documents for PS5 certification in Brazil – as, in other countries, the authorities are primarily interested in the performance of the wireless module.

The PS5 received a J20H100 chip that supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 standards, the most advanced versions common in consumer electronics

Judging by the specified characteristics, Wi-Fi 6 in the PS5 is “simplified” – it works only in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. The most advanced Wi-Fi 6 standard also has a 6 GHz model, but at the moment its fate is in question, since this frequency is closed for civil use in most countries, and manufacturers of 5G equipment also apply for it.

Even so, Wi-Fi 6 provides significantly higher connection stability and wider communication path for every device on the network, thanks to advanced queuing algorithms, 10-bit signal coding, and more sub-frequencies. Nominally, in terms of speed, it differs little from Wi-Fi 5 GHz (802.11ac), but in fact, the speed increases due to the reduction of interference and conflicts when transferring data between the router and the device.

The main distinguishing feature of Bluetooth 5.1 is a simplified mutual recognition of devices and accurate (up to 1 cm) positioning of connected devices. In theory, the PS5 will be able to pinpoint where the controller is, or quickly automatically recognize and connect to branded wireless peripherals.

The application does not specify a list of supported codecs – to connect a headset for gaming without audio delays via Bluetooth, the console and headset must support the AptX Low Latency codec or its equivalent. Whether it will appear in the PS5 will most likely become known only closer to the release at the end of 2020.
