Whilst 2.4GHz proprietary development does not offer the interoperability that comes with standards like Bluetooth, it can offer special abilities.

Of course, you can add images
All of the nRF52 Series SoCs multi-protocol SoCs have been designed to take advantage of these significant performance advancements of Bluetooth 5. Additionally, the nRF52840 has improved output power of 8dB which together with new long range features in Bluetooth 5 offer significant new application possibilities requiring longer range communication.
