Hello Mi Fans,

Hope all of you doing well. Today in this thread we are talking about Bluetooth 5.0.
In past few years, wireless transmission standards are evolving to meet the needs of the industry and Bluetooth 5.0 is not an exception in this case.
The last major version of the standard, Bluetooth 4.0, was officially rolled out in 2011, while the last iterative update was Bluetooth 4.2 on December 2, 2014. Now it’s time for Bluetooth 5 to enter the industry.

A quick overview on Bluetooth 5.0 :

In simple words: It’s faster, has longer range, and can transfer more information.
With up to 4x the range, 2x the speed and 8x the broadcasting message capacity, the enhancements of Bluetooth 5.0 focus on increasing functionality for the Internet of Things (IoT). Advertising extensions allow more efficient use of broadcasting channels on the increasingly crowded 2.4 GHz band, enabling richer connectionless solutions.

Key Feature of Bluetooth 5.0 :
· 2x bandwidth
· 4x range
· 8x the broadcasting message capacity
· IoT Ready
· Location Service
· low energy feature

Let's try to understand this points in details...

1: 2X Bandwidth :
The remarkable improvement with Bluetooth 5.0 is speed. Supported devices can transfer data up to 2 Mbps, which is twice the speed of the previous version. This transfer rate is achieved by doubling the amount of data that devices can transfer thus Bluetooth 5.0 reduces the time required for transmitting and receiving data
This means With Bluetooth 5 you can send and receive much more data much more quickly.

2: 4x Range :
With speed boost, Bluetooth 5.0  has improved range by four times (up to 260 feet) the range as Bluetooth 4.2. This will come in particularly useful for things like portable speakers and other Bluetooth enabled gadgets. That’s a huge jump up from the 30 feet allowed by Bluetooth 4.2. This extended range of Bluetooth 5.0 could also have a big impact on smart home devices like smart security cameras and smart bulbs.

3: 8x Broadcasting Message Capacity :
Bluetooth 5.0 offers 8x times the data broadcasting capacity with support for larger data packets. Bluetooth 5.0 has more bandwidth to support two sets of wireless devices at a time. This means No need to share your headphones with your friends, you and your friend can use two different wireless devices at a time.

4:  IoT Ready :
The previous version of Bluetooth, Bluetooth 4.2, has some features to make it work with the so-called Internet of Things. But Bluetooth 5.0 is a complete package for the IoT devices and it will help manage your devices better.
Also with an increase of broadcast capacity means the new standard will be able to communicate much more easily with IoT devices. So you can control your devices from a longer range probably outside of your home or may be standing on the road, that’s the power of Bluetooth 5.0.

5: Location Service :
Bluetooth 5.0 is not only about faster transfer rate and higher bandwidth, but it also helps in improvising the location services.
It will be helpful for big shopping centers to identify people from indoor navigation. This will be possible because Bluetooth 5.0 will add “significantly more capacity to advertising transmission,” according to Bluetooth SIG. This means it will be able to convey information without creating any actual connection.

6: Low Energy Feature :
Bluetooth with low energy functionality, introduced in Bluetooth 4.0, is a feature within Bluetooth Core Specification version 5.0. In fact, the new features and benefits of Bluetooth 5.0 are designed specifically for Bluetooth with low energy functionality
