Bluetooth speaker Libratone One Style

Bluetooth Special Interest Group has officially revealed the new Bluetooth standard 5 that will make life easier for Bluetooth users.

The new version will be able to handle twice as high transfer rates compared to its predecessor, and should work at much longer distances.

This while power consumption is as low as Bluetooth LE.

This means that smart watches and headphones with the new Bluetooth will have a much more stable coupling without drawing too much power from the phone.

The first devices with Bluetooth 5 will appear on the market around year-end.
