This is done while maintaining low-energy functionality and flexibility for developers.
Four times range increase and at the same power levels? Impossible. Now is about the same range as WiFi. Bluetooth 4 was already integrated with WiFi transmitters. Control channel was still using Bluetooth tansmitters, preventing increase the range, now they removed this restriction. No more Bluetooth headsets....
