HTC U11 owners need to get ready soon, as Android O will allow the U11 to use Bluetooth 5.0 officially.
However, users will not get access to these enhanced features until later this year. For now, we can stay excited about the HTC U11 becoming one of the best phones for smart device and smart appliance communications. From what we know, Bluetooth 5.0 removes slow bottleneck speeds from established connections.

Conversely, Android Central claims that the U11 cannot support transmissions over long distances. This contradicts the most notable feature of 5.0, which makes the entire report confusing. All we can be sure about, in the meantime, is the fact that U11 users can expect faster data flow thanks to Android O hitting the U11 smartphone.
