Bluetooth 5.0 on the Samsung Galaxy S8?

14 December, 2016 Samsung

Just yesterday, Synaptics had confirmed an optical fingerprint scanner which can be placed under a whole millimetre of glass and today we have news about Bluetooth v5.0 debuting soon. Interestingly enough, Samsung is associated closely with both the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, as well as Synaptics. What this means is that it is highly likely that the Galaxy S8 will be among the very first smartphones in the market to sport the latest version of Bluetooth and an optical fingerprint sensor. Some reports are even indicating that the S8 will be THE first device to sport Bluetooth 5.0 in 2017. While it is very much possible that Bluetooth 5.0 will debut on the Galaxy S8, there haven't been any reports that confirm it yet.

Bluetooth 5.0 is two times faster than its predecessor, has four times the active range and eight times the capacity for broadcast messages. According to the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, v5.0 will ready for a public release within a timeframe of 2 - 6 months and on release, it will work perfectly in new ways with other wireless tech.
