Till now, we just seen quite slanted growth in Bluetooth technology and despite of much features, there been some improvement in data transmission speed along with some battery power consumption efficiency. But this time, we have something more to see in here.
Here we are compiling features that are updated in new bluetooth 5.0.
Increased bandwidth, Lower energy consumption
Bluetooth 5.0 introducing new and enhanced compatibility of data transmission speed up to 2.0 Mbps by doubling the amount of data transfer as compared to earlier version. It also allow fast over the air connection and reducing the pairing time, like it pair instantaneously all that with less amount of energy consumption.
