Bluetooth Version

Devices connect wirelessly via Bluetooth technology using radio waves instead of wires or cables to connect to a phone or computer.  Communication between Bluetooth devices happens over short-range, establishing a network dynamically and automatically as Bluetooth devices enter and leave radio proximity.

MU-MIMO

Multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) is a set of multiple-input and multiple-output technologies for wireless communication, in which a set of users or wireless terminals, each with one or more antennas, communicate with each other.
