Despite receipt of Bluetooth 5 certification, HTC U11 won't run new features until Android O is installed
Helping to prevent logjams and interference will be new algorithms designed to prevent Bluetooth users from using transmission channels already being employed for Wi-Fi or LTE. According to the Special Interest Group, Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) specifications for audio transmissions are still in flux and should be finished by the end of 2017.
The thing to remember is that Android N does not support any of the Bluetooth 5 features. On the other hand, Android O will support Bluetooth 5 natively.
Right now, the HTC U11 and Samsung Galaxy S8 are the only Android-flavored handsets that have received their Bluetooth 5 certification.
