what is bluetooth 5.0

We know that Bluetooth is a wireless data exchanging technology within an existing distance. And the maximum modern device is now Bluetooth enabled. Even we are habituated with this technology for many days. Nowadays we can not imagine a tech device without Bluetooth. Technology is always updating and day by day will be more. I came here to tell you about the Bluetooth 5.0 version and its Specification.

16 June 2016 Bluetooth.com presented its latest version 5 and they informed officially with press release 7th Dec 2016. And we all know that two tech giants Samsung (Galaxy S8) and Apple ( iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X ) release their phones using Bluetooth 5.0 version.

What is Bluetooth 5.0? Bluetooth 5 Advantage:

The new version Bluetooth brings more improvements But it has a problem, if you use your old device then it does not give you the 5.0 instant benefit after upgrading the version. Bluetooth is backward compatible. But you can serve your needs with other update version users.

They include four times range than 4.2, two times speed, and eight times broadcast message capacity. And the best advantage of 5 is  Bluetooth Low Energy specification. For the reasons, we know that wireless headphones couldn’t communicate over Bluetooth Low Energy but now the 5.0 version can communicate with all audio devices over Bluetooth Low Energy. Below I describes for easy understanding :

Bluetooth 5.0 Improves Coexistence with Wi-Fi Devices:

Actually, Bluetooth 5 was released as improving wireless coexistence and interoperability, a statement that can easily be misunderstood as enhanced coexistence with a WiFi device. The real improvement in coexistence is with other nearby BLE devices. The random frequency-hopping scheme of Bluetooth 5 decreases the chance of a neighboring BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) device transmitting on the same radio-frequency (RF) channel at the same time, thus increasing the overall robustness of each connection. Bluetooth 5 allows a user to control multi-devices from Bluetooth-equipped smartphones, headphones, and other devices.

Bluetooth Speed:

The updated version Bluetooth 5 is more than a faster Bluetooth 4. And Bluetooth 4 highly supported 2 Mbps and the latest 5 version gives you up to 5 MBPS.

Bluetooth 5.0 Range:

Bluetooth 5 is awesome in range. Last Bluetooth 4 supports only 50 meters ( Surround) in the outdoor range and 10 meters ( Surround) of indoor space, whereas Bluetooth 5 offers 60 meters of the outdoor environment, 200 meters (Around 800 feet) in the indoor environment, and 40 meters in the internal environment. And it is proved myself.

Increase Power Capacity:

Bluetooth 5 is designed to use less power than Bluetooth 4 versions in your device, which means you can keep your Bluetooth for a long time and it is much more than Bluetooth 4, which consumes more power than its new version.

Message Capability:

Bluetooth 4.0 offers a maximum of 31 bytes and the latest Bluetooth 5.0 will give you 255 bytes. What a change of the version!!!
