Does Intel® Wireless-AC 9260 support Bluetooth 5 Long Range (coded phys) and 2Mb mode?

Just curious because the spec sheet kinda is ambiguous.

Bluetooth+ 5 provides 4x4 range over BT4.2 with the same power, enabling coverage throughout the home. BT5 also doubles the transmit speed for faster transmissions thereby reducing the overall power.4 Additionally, BT5 adds new enhanced data broadcasting enabling seamless services such as location-based services and simpler pairing for BT devices.

It doesn't specifically say if it supports both those features just announces Bluetooth 5 new features. (Which I believe Long Range & 2Mbps modes aren't required to be included in a BT5 enabled product so its up to the manufacturer)

TCork, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support. In reference to your question, the Intel® Wireless-AC 9260 supports Bluetooth 5 as you can verify in the link below, but I will confirm if in fact supports Long Range (coded phys) and 2Mb mode also, as soon as I validated that information I will post all the details on this thread: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/99445/intel-wireless-ac-9260.html Regards, Alberto R.
