The HTC U11 has received its Bluetooth 5.0 certification from the Bluetooth SIG. But that doesn’t mean that the phone’s new Bluetooth capabilities are now available. The new features won’t be completely offered to users until the next build of Android, Android O, is actually installed on the handset later this year. The new version of Bluetooth will allow data to be transmitted at speeds twice as fast as presently available, and transmission distance will increase by a factor of four. The amount of information and data sent in each broadcast will increase by as much as eight times the current number.
