The Bluetooth LE is basically meant for consuming low energy while it is connected to Bluetooth enabled accessories. It allows users to connect their phones with special accessories like fitness monitors, temperature sensors and hear-rate monitors among others. This feature will also help in running an accessory’s battery for longer, even for up to months, Nokia claims.
