Based on Bluetooth, it would reach 20 MB/s speeds.

Count OnePlus in too

Sounds interesting.
Like a special kind of bluetooth.

ShareMe and the oters mentioned all utilize Wi-Fi Direct, unlike this new bluetooth based solution in this article. Which is still slower than Wi-Fi Direct. So I'll stick to it.

Wi-Fi direct is still faster tho, and probably easier to use...

"Wi-Fi Direct is a technology that generates a Wi-Fi zone and this in turn creates a direct link that allows the connection between the devices."

OnePlus' FileDash and their sharing through hotspot is the same as ShareMe, which is Wi-Fi Direct. Hence it accomplishes the same speeds as Wi-Fi direct, because it is Wi-Fi direct. . .

Wi-Fi direct speeds should be able to speed up compared to these speeds as well. After all the modems on our phones are now faster, same goes for storage read/write speeds.

Finophile, 20 Aug 2019I'm not sure what this offers that bluetooth hasn't offered for ... moreIt's about simplifying and much higher speed I guess. Bluetooth file transfer is less than ideal compared to say wi-fi direct. BT 5.0 peer-to-peer file transfers typically reach up to 3Mbit/s, although up to 24Mbit/s can be supported on some devices.
Here they are talking about 20 MB/s (160Mbit/s). Much closer to Wi-Fi direct speeds.

I just tell anyone I need to transfer something to to download Xiaomi's ShareMe (Mi Drop). It's much easier and faster (Wi-Fi Direct) than bluetooth transfers.

I'm not sure what this offers that bluetooth hasn't offered for ages. I transferred a large audio recording of ambient sounds to a friend via bluetooth some time ago, both phones were just android.

Bluetooth is 5 Mb/s, Wifi direct is 250 Mb/s...

  • TeF

Why not just using Wifi Direct ? I use it between my Samsung phones, and it works great. It works also with Huawei, but for some reason it is not working with Oppo and Vivo

The are missing hole the internet how is it possible, or inventing the wheel all over
