Bluetooth 5 will be officially launched on June 16 in London. Commenting on the development, Bluetooth SIG Executive Director Mark Powell revealed via email that Bluetooth 5 will double the range of transmissions, and offer 4x speeds of low-energy Bluetooth. Moreover, the update will be called as Bluetooth 5 and not 5.0 as in the previous versions.
Powell added that the main approach is focused on simplifying our marketing, communicating user benefits more effectively and making it easier to signal significant technology updates to the market.
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.
Bluetooth 5 will offer significant new functionality for connectionless services like location-relevant information and navigation including adding significantly more capacity to advertising transmissions. The company disclosed that Bluetooth 5 will propel the adoption and deployment of beacons and location-based services to users around the world.
We expect that the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be shipped with Bluetooth 5 support. Microsoft is also planning to incorporate Bluetooth 5 functionality in the upcoming Surface Pro 5.
