Faster, longer-range Bluetooth 5

A new version of the Bluetooth wireless spec will be coming to device soon, giving users faster connectivity among devices over longer distances.

The new version, Bluetooth 5, is a big upgrade over Bluetooth 4.2, the current specification. In a clear line of sight, the range of Bluetooth 5 could stretch to 400 meters. That means users could connect a smartphone to a Bluetooth speaker that may not even be visible. Final Bluetooth specs will be disclosed by the end of this year or early next year.
