    I'm all but positive the S21 Ultra will come with BLE with the research I've done. If anyone can confirm this it would make my day. I wear hearing aids that use BLE technology and I can't be without it. My calls and notifications as well as music streams go straight from phone to aid via BLE. An app on my phone monitors and manages my aids as well. It would be a deal breaker if the tech isn't included in the Ultra.

    Thanks Kate. I spoke to a Sammy rep today to confirm that before I ordered. I hope the range is equal to or exceeds my Note. At home I can lose connection between my office and kitchen. It's intended to be a close range communication and my phone is always in my pocket except when home. I guess I will find out. In any event, thank you for the information.

    I think BLE is standard on most Android 5+ phones these days. It had better be there as the U.K's official National Health Service COVID-19 Track and Trace app uses BLE, 24/7. :D

    I think it's a standard, yes. It's so important to me that I needed to confirm but yes. The track and trace app sounds like a merit.
    I like the BLE communication. Though it's close range, it works flawlessly and in no way interferes with regular BT.

    Speaking of BT. I read or saw that the S21 can BT to two different devices simultaneously. The only example I saw was to the Sammy wireless buds. Where as my traditional wireless Bose buds receive the BT stream to one bud and in turn that bud sends that stream to the other, with the Sammy buds, both buds receive the stream from the S21. It will be interesting to see if that will work with two different devices such as two sets of BT speakers.
