The new HTC U11 will apparently get Bluetooth 5.0 via a software update. A recent filing at the FCC has revealed that the company plans to bring Bluetooth 5.0 with a software update.
The HTC U11 is one of the first handsets to come with Bluetooth 5. The handset has the hardware built in but it has not been enabled as yet.
Bluetooth 5.0 will bring a longer Bluetooth range to the handset and also improved battery life with lower power usage.
HTC have not revealed as yet exactly when the software update to enable Bluetooth 5 on the device will be, as soon as we get some more information, we will let you guys know.
