https://briarproject.org/ provides better protection of metadata and it’s already on f-droid - plus, a desktop client is coming up.

Importantly, Briar funding paints the project as trustworthy https://briarproject.org/about-us/ :

Briar has received funding from Small Media, the Open Internet Tools Project, Access, the Open Technology Fund, the Prototype Fund, Internews, the NLnet Foundation, the Next Generation Internet programme and the ISC Project.

That’s very cool! I am not familiar with Bluetooth Low Energy technologies. How does a message travel from the sender to the recipient without internet?

BLE has a very short communication distance (absolute max range 100m in laboratory conditions). This would make it nearly useless unless you and the person you are communicating with are in the same room—unless EVERYONE used the app to allow mesh communication. Either way, it seems to impractical for it to catch on, sadly.

What is the bandwidth and data usage?

Both Jami and Briar take too much for average Cubans.

I mean, when using internet connection to connect.

These three should be worked for Federation. Even though they have incompatible features, they work on the same systems and this would be precious!
