China Unicom, Qualcomm To Showcase Live 5G Today; Vivo, Oppo, Nubia To Participate

China Unicom is demonstrating live 5G communication services today at the China Unicom Partner Conference taking place in Shanghai. The public demonstrations will see 5G devices from OEMs like nubia, OnePlus, OPPO, Vivo, Xiaomi and ZTE that will run on China Unicom’s 5G network. All these devices are built on Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform with the X50 5G Modem with integrated RF transceiver and Qualcomm Technologies’ RF front-end solution.

China Unicom announced at the conference that it is the first Chinese operator expected to deliver 5G experiences to consumers.

The live demonstrations  plan to feature over-the-air (OTA) connections and applications using China Unicom’s live 5G network and OEM mobile devices using Qualcomm Technologies’ solutions. This collaboration highlights efforts to accelerate the availablity of 5G mobile devices and services in China starting this year.

The live 5G network is expected to cover the event space at the China Unicom Partner Conference, allowing attendees to experience a variety of rich 5G use cases and mobile experiences firsthand, including HD video streaming, cloud gaming, web browsing and data realtime sharing between devices and cloud.

With 5G mobile devices powered by Qualcomm Technologies’ mobile platforms and 5G modems, consumers can now benefit from multi-gigabit peak speeds and extreme low-latency in smartphones. Qualcomm Technologies’ 5G solutions are enabling Chinese OEMs to participate in the global 5G opportunity by helping them to address the exponential increase in device design complexity that comes with the next generation of mobile technology.

“For the past decades, our technology has been a foundation for the wireless evolution. It takes many years of R&D, specification, prototyping, testing, trials and product development to bring a new generation of mobile technology to China and the world,” said Frank Meng, Chairman, Qualcomm China. “Like previous generations, 5G is the result of more than a decade of collaborative efforts by Qualcomm Technologies and our ecosystem partners, with the mission of preparing the mobile industry for 5G rollout starting this year. We’re excited for Chinese consumers to experience 5G’s truly transformative wireless experience in 2019.”
