I have just noticed a small number next to the Wifi symbol on my S10, showing a 6 above the arrows.
Does it mean that there currently are 6 Wifi networks available nearby or is it something else?
I am just curious about this new addition, was it introduced in OneUI 2?
Edit: Even with only 3 Wifi networks visible there is a '6'.
No....but can it have something to do with Wifi 6?
What is wifi 6
If you’ve ever bought a Wi-Fi router, you may have had to sort through specs that read like complete gibberish — like “802.11ac” or “a/b/g/n.” But going forward, Wi-Fi is adopting version numbers so that it’ll be easier to tell whether the router or device you’re buying is on the latest version.
I encountered a WiFi 6 network at a new facility at my university. My older Dell laptop saw no networks whereas my Samsung Galaxy S20 saw all the regular access points. I finally noticed the "6" on the phone next to the WiFi indicator. The phone worked fine on WiFi, but I had to update my laptop's wireless device driver before it would even see the WiFi 6 networks. Yes, WiFi backwards compatibility works, but the laptop needed help to catch up.
