Bluetooth 5 Is Coming Soon
Bluetooth 5 will be coming next week and it is coming with a number of improvements over the current version, Bluetooth 4. So you can expect it faster and more reliable to connections.
On the technical side, Bluetooth 5 has a lot to offer. As previously announced, it will double the range and quadruple the speed of low energy Bluetooth transmissions. But there’s more. Bluetooth 5 will also provide significant new functionality for connectionless services like location-relevant information and navigation. By adding significantly more capacity to advertising transmissions, Bluetooth 5 will further propel the adoption and deployment of beacons and location-based services to users around the world. It’s a great story and one we’re looking forward to telling from our upcoming media event in London on 16 June.
Check back next week for more detailed information on Bluetooth 5.
