Android Smart Phones With Bluetooth 5.0

Top Android Smart Phones With Bluetooth 5.0 Low Power BLE Support

Currently, Android Smart Phones With Bluetooth 5.0 is only a few. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8+ are the two devices with support for Bluetooth 5.0 at launch. So what is Bluetooth 5.0 all about? The latest Bluetooth specification was adopted in December 2016 with a promise of more range and higher wireless interconnect speeds.

Here are the highlights:

  • 4x the range of a comparable Bluetooth 4.2 BLE devices.
  • 2x speed when compared to Bluetooth 4.2. A maximum theoretical bandwidth of 2 Mbps.
  • 8x  broadcasting message capacity over Bluetooth 4.2 with larger data packet size (31-octet to 255-octet packages)
  • Auto-detect interference on neighboring bands and automatically prevent the interference

It is quite an incremental major update to the current Bluetooth 4.2 standards. Now the advantages are clear, let us look at the top Android Smart Phones with Bluetooth 5.0.

Android Smart Phones With Bluetooth 5.0

Before we start with this list, let me clarify one vital point. The support for Bluetooth 5.0 comes with the chipset (For example Snapdragon 636, 845, etc.) and is not necessarily a phone feature. However, it is loosely coupled, since the phone manufacturer decides which chipset to use on their future models. We expect in 2018, almost all new released will support this new standard, irrespective of the market segment.

Now that we clarified it let us go ahead and list out the best phones equipped with Bluetooth 5.0.

 1. Samsung Galaxy S8

Android Smart Phones With Bluetooth 5.0

Buy from Amazon USABuy from Amazon UKBuy from Amazon India

The Galaxy S8 is the flagship phone of 2017 from Samsung. It comes with an astonishing 84% body to screen ratio. To put things into perspective, the Xiaomi Mi Mix is a bezel-less phone and has a body to screen ratio of 83.6%. So how does Samsung does it? With curved edges obviously. The phone is taller and narrower which makes it on par with a 5.5″ phone from other flagships. The phone dimensions make it one of the tallest Android phones currently available in the market. With a resolution of 5.8″ Inch 1440 x 2960, SAMOLED display, it is currently one of the best. Then there is the Snapdragon 835 from Qualcomm’s flagship offerings. This time, Samsung is not using their in-house Exynos chips, at least for now. The graphics are handled by an Adreno 540 GPU coupled with 4 GB of DDR4 RAM and 64 GB UFS 2.1 ROM. The camera module for both front and rear has been unchanged, maybe because it is already exquisite.

Here are its specifications:

If the Galaxy S8 was not tall enough for you, you could buy the Galaxy S8+ (read: Plus) edition. With a taller screen of 6.4″ and curved edges, it gives you a pixel density of 529 PPI, makes it one of the tallest phones out there. The battery is slightly larger at 3500 MaH to support the larger display. Apart from the phone price, device dimensions, screen size, and the battery capacity, all other specifications are identical when compared to the Galaxy S8.

Here are it’s summarized specifications.

3. Xiaomi MI 6

The Mi 6 is the current flagship of 2017 from Xiaomi Corporation. The phone comes with top-notch specifications barring the screen resolution. Many Xiaomi fans including us, expected the screen to be at least a Quad-HD screen. However, Xiaomi disappointed us with a 1080p display, but notably with more pixels per inch. The 5.15″ screen size makes it a flagship phone in the small category. The top-end Snapdragon 835 from Qualcomm’s flagship offerings makes the phone user experience buttery smooth. As you would expect, the graphics are handled by an Adreno-540 GPU coupled with 6 GB of DDR4 RAM and 64/128 GB UFS 2.1 ROM.

It is also one of the few phones apart from Samsung’s flagship, which comes with a Bluetooth 5.0 radio. It creates new opportunities for accessory makers to come up with innovative Bluetooth low power devices.

Here are its specifications:

Another phone that makes it to this Android Smart Phones With Bluetooth 5.0 list is the Oneplus 5!

OnePlus is back with their latest flagship killer for 2017, namely the OnePlus 5. The Team at Oneplus skipped the OnePlus 4 in their model naming series, but the same did not happen to its specs. The phone is loaded with top-notch specs. From 8 Gigabytes of RAM to 128 GB of UFS 2.1 storage, to Dual-Camera system for DSLR-like photo quality and bokeh. As you would expect, the Snapdragon 835 does the heavy lifting under the hood. The 835 also has a superior image processing chip for better color range & HDR.

As you would expect, the Snapdragon 835 does the heavy lifting under the hood. The 835 also has a superior image processing chip for better color range & HDR.

The Dual Camera uses one telephoto and one wide lens to capture the depth of field in pictures. On the flip side though, the phone loses 100 mAh capacity when compared to its predecessor, the 3T. (3300 Vs. 3400 mAh).

More importantly, it supports the new Bluetooth 5.0 standard for high range, high bandwidth performance with other Bluetooth devices.
