You'll find Wifi 5 inside the laptop, which is the previous generation. However, this does not mean its necessarily a major disadvantage. Wifi 5 is more than capable for the majority of the users, with only top tier users really requiring Wifi 6 at the moment.
Bluetooth is included, however it is Bluetooth 4 which is the previous generation. This won't stop most users, but ensure that anything you're planning on using is Bluetooth 4 compatible - which is should be.
