Readers, you know that Bluetooth is a wireless data exchanging technology within a short distance. And already we are habituated with this technology for many days. Even we can not imagine a tech device without Bluetooth. Technology is always updated and day by day will be more. I came here to tell you the difference of Bluetooth version with 5.0 vs 4.2.
16 June 2016 Bluetooth technology presented their latest version 5 and they informed officially with press release 7th Dec 2016. And we all know that two tech giant Samsung (Galaxy S8) and Apple ( iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X ) release their phone using Bluetooth 5.0 version.
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 user.
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 5.0 version can communicate with all audio devices over Bluetooth Low Energy. Below I describes for easy understanding :
The update version Bluetooth 5 is faster than 4. Bluetooth 4 supported 2mbps whereas 5 gives you up to 5mdps.
The Range of Bluetooth 5.0
Bluetooth 4 supports 50 meters in the outdoor range and 10 meters of indoor space, while Bluetooth 5 supports 5 meters of the outdoor environment, 200 meters (Around 800 feet) in the indoor environment and 40 meters in the internal environment.

Bluetooth 5 has been designed to make use of less power on your device than Bluetooth 4. This means that you can keep your Bluetooth in for a long time and it’s much more than Bluetooth 4, which consumes more power than its new counterpart.
Bluetooth 4 can give you highly 31 bytes whereas Bluetooth 5 can give you 255 bytes.
