If you don’t know how to check the Bluetooth version of an Android smartphone, we are going to help you out. Nowadays all Android phones have a Bluetooth connection, but not the same version. If you want to know exactly which version you are using, this tutorial will come in handy.
Having an “old” version of Bluetooth will not prevent you from connecting new devices, such as AirPods, but it does prevent you from taking advantage of all the features and maximum speed. Here’s how you can easily check the Bluetooth version of your Android smartphone.
How to check the Bluetooth version of an Android smartphone?
The Bluetooth version is one of the sections that usually appears in the technical specs of the smartphones, although sometimes the summary that appears in online stores or on the product box itself may not go into so much detail. If you are in doubt, it is best to check the version on the smartphone itself.
While the system information section indicates data such as how much RAM and storage the phone has, there is no trace of the Bluetooth version: the closest thing you can see is the Bluetooth MAC address. To find out the Bluetooth version you will need a system information application, such as AIDA64.
AIDA64 is a great application that shows you a detailed summary of all the specs of your phone. It has specific sections for Android, CPU, or display information, although Bluetooth information is found in the System section.
Tap on System and scroll down the list until you get to Bluetooth Version, which will tell you exactly what numerical version of Bluetooth the phone supports, based on internal system metadata.
How to learn the detailed specs though? If you are interested in knowing the exact features supported by your smartphone, you can also use BT/BLE Checker application which is available on Google Play.
