Samsung’s new flagship Galaxy S8 is chock-full of new technologies, including the new Bluetooth 5.0. Thanks to this, the device can support two Bluetooth headphones at any given time.

The new Bluetooth 5.0 standard is a big improvement over its predecessor. It transfers data faster while using up less energy.


TechRadar reports that through this technology, users will be able to hook up two separate bluetooth headphones to the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

Someone listening on a pair of Bluetooth headphones will now be able to share music with another bluetooth device without having to untether his own headphones.


Apart from the potential for greater wireless audio, the convenience offered by tethering two Bluetooth headphones at the same time is certainly a welcome edition. Alfred Bayle/JB
