Frontier technologies like 5G inspire OPPO’s Research and Development efforts as it strives to become the first manufacturer to launch 5G smartphones in the world

For the first time in the history of Smartphone technology, a multiparty video conferencing call was completed on a 5G network and the global smartphone technology giants, OPPO, achieved this feat. OPPO’s global R&D staff makes the world’s first multiparty video call via the 5G network. The company is increasingly gaining attention all over the world for its classy smartphone designs, unbelievably camera quality, seamless user experience and most recently, its 5G capabilities.

Engineers from 6 different OPPO Research & Development institutes around the world participated in the video call using WeChat, a popular Chinese social media app, with “Hello OPPO, Hello 5G” being the first words spoken. This breakthrough makes OPPO the first smartphone technology company in the world to make a multiparty video call on a 5G network. Earlier this year, OPPO was the first company in the world to complete 5G signalling and data connections on a smartphone. Completing the first multiparty 5G video call on a smartphone further shows OPPO’s technological edge in the development of 5G smartphones and brings the company a step closer to being one of the first manufacturers to release 5G smartphones commercially in 2019.

Tony Chen, Founder, President and CEO of OPPO stressed at the recent 2018 OPPO Technology Exhibition in Shenzhen, that “We will fully integrate 5G with applications and user insights, and continuously innovate to provide users with revolutionary, necessary, convenient and seamless experiences.”

The first 5G multiparty video call in the world was made on an R15 Pro-based 5G smartphone and lasted for more than 17 minutes on a 5G network with a bandwidth of 100 MHz. For more details, please contact OPPO Nigeria PR Team: [email protected]
