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 a press release on 7th Dec 2016. And we all know that two tech giants Samsung and Apple release their phones using the new 5.0 version.
The Bluetooth version is always upgradeable Few days ago the latest version was 5.0, but now Bluetooth brings more two versions like the 5.1 version and 5.2. And at the moment 5.2 is the latest. Below you can check the details
Latest version 5.1 details
Latest version 5.2 details
What is 5.0 Vs 5 Advantages:
The new version of 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. It is backward compatible. But you can serve your needs with other updated 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 BLE 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 BLE. Below I describe 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 version 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. Version 5 allows a user to control multi-devices from Bluetooth-equipped smartphones, headphones, and other devices.
The updated version 5 is faster than 4. version 4 supported 2 Mbps whereas 5 gives you up to 5 MBPS.
Previous version 4 supports 50 meters in the outdoor range and 10 meters of indoor space, while version 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:
Version 5 has been designed to make use of less power on your device than version 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.
Version 4.0 can give you highly 31 bytes whereas Version 5.0 can give you 255 bytes.
