Looks like the PS4 Slim will be supporting 5 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity, according to several posts on Twitter.
Many people did not like it when the original PS4 only featured 802.11n 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi. Many of you may know 5 GHz Wi-Fi brings better performance especially for online gaming, so it didn’t really make sense why Sony didn’t do that initially. The Xbox One had it since launch.
Well that’s all about to change, because the PS4 Slim will be featuring 802.11ac 5 GHz Wi-Fi! Here are some pictures we retrieved.
As you can see in the screenshot, the screen is displaying the current frequency band in use, which is pretty much confirming the inclusion of 5 GHz Wi-Fi. It also says so in the PS4 Safety Guide.
Well, if the PS4 Slim includes the 5 GHz connectivity, it would make sense to include it in the higher-end PS4 Neo right?
Hopefully we will hear more about these two new PS4 revisions on September 7th.
