Bluetooth Is About To Get Some Big Improvements


The world will this week learn more about Bluetooth 5, which will offer four times the speed and twice the range of Bluetooth v4.2.

This week, the body that oversees the development of Bluetooth will release details of a major new version of the ubiquitous wireless technology. Bluetooth 5 will have double the speed and four times the range of the current low-energy version. That should mean big improvements for the connections between smartphones and smartwatches, for example, or wireless headphones.
