Nokia Adds Bluetooth LE To All Windows Phone 8 Lumia Handsets
Gabriel Roşu / 3 years ago
Nokia is going to release an update which will add the latest low-energy version of Bluetooth to all Lumia phones running Windows Phone 8. It was released for the Lumia 520, Lumia 620, Lumia 625 and Lumia 720, and now will arrive for the rest of the Lumia smartphones through the Lumia Black update, as Nokia calls it.
The Bluetooth LE has a number of features but the most important is low-energy consumption. Built into Bluetooth 4.0, the low-energy technology lets you pair your phone with special accessories designed for health and fitness, among other areas. With Bluetooth LE, the accessory’s battery charge also lasts considerable longer than it would, using an older version of Bluetooth.
The low-power consumption feature is a key factor in today’s smartphones. Having a handset run a variety of apps, including internet connectivity for social media, news apps, etc., and listening to your favorite tunes on wireless headphones will gobble up a lot of battery. Therefore any low-power consumption features are welcome anytime.
