Samsung on Tuesday introduced what it is describing as the world’s first 8K QLED TV. The company’s newly launched Samsung 8K QLED Y21 TV. The newly introduced TV is a successor to the 8K TVs with Wi-Fi 6 connectivity that were launched in 2020.

Samsung's newly introduced TV is powered by MediaTek’s MT7921AU system-on-chip and it comes with Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 for connectivity.
