What is Bluetooth Technology?
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 updating and day by day will be more. I came here to tell you the difference between the Bluetooth version with 5.0 vs 4.0.
16 June 2016 Bluetooth.com presented its latest version 5 and they informed officially with press release 7th Dec 2016. And we all know that two tech giants Samsung (Galaxy S8) and Apple ( iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X ) release their phones using Bluetooth 5.0 version.

What is Bluetooth 5.0? 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 users.
They include four times range than 4.2, two times more speed, and eight times broadcast message capacity. And the best advantage of 5 is Bluetooth Low Energy specification. For this reason, we know that wireless headphones couldn’t communicate over Bluetooth Low Energy but now the 5.0 version can communicate with all audio devices over Bluetooth Low Energy. Below I describes for easy understanding :
Bluetooth 5.0 Improves Coexistence with Wi-Fi devices:
Bluetooth 5 was marketed as improving wireless coexistence and interoperability, a statement that can easily be misunderstood as enhanced coexistence with a WiFi device. The real improvement in coexistence is with other nearby BLE devices. The random frequency-hopping scheme of Bluetooth 5 decreases the chance of a neighboring BLE device transmitting on the same radio-frequency (RF) channel at the same time, thus increasing the overall robustness of each connection. Bluetooth 5 allows a user to control multi-devices from Bluetooth-equipped smartphones, headphones, and other devices.
The updated version Bluetooth 5 is faster than 4. Bluetooth 4 supported 2 Mbps whereas 5 gives you up to 5 MBPS.
Bluetooth 5.0 Range:
Previous Bluetooth 4 supports 50 meters in the outdoor range and 10 meters of indoor space, while Bluetooth 5 supports 60 meters of the outdoor environment, 200 meters (Around 800 feet) in the indoor environment, and 40 meters in the internal environment. And its proved my self.
Increase Power Capacity:
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 4.0 can give you highly 31 bytes whereas Bluetooth 5.0 can give you 255 bytes.
