This is the official specification for the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 is stated here http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/dual-band-wireless-ac-8260-brief-v2.pdf, the Bluetooth® is in fact 4.2.
Thank you Amy, but there's still a conflict in specs though.
Still waiting for mine so anyone with linux on their 6i3SY or 6i5SY care to check what they have?
This should do it, assuming you have Bluetooth enabled:
# hciconfig -a
and in the output, the following line:
HCI Version: (0x7) Revision: 0x3101
where (0x7) would indicate version 4.1
and (0x8) would indicate version 4.2
based on the Bluetooth documentation:
Got my 6i3SYH. Manufacture date 2016-04 and came preinstalled with BIOS 0042. It at least has Bluetooth 4.2.
$ hciconfig -a
