OPPO Demonstrates 5G Video Call On A Smartphone

OPPO Monday said it has successfully completed a multiparty video call on a smartphone via 5G network at 12:57am local time. Engineers from six OPPO R&D institutes worldwide participated in the 5G video call using WeChat, a popular Chinese social media app, with an inaugural message of “Hello OPPO, Hello 5G”. The company claims the video call on a 5G network is a world first.

In the footage released by OPPO, the video call was made on a R15 Pro-based 5G smartphone and lasted for more than 17 minutes on a 5G network with a bandwidth of 100 MHz. Engineers operating out of OPPO’s six R&D institutes worldwide reported smooth connectivity and low latency during the video call. For the 5G test, OPPO used Keysight’s UXM test set and 5G New Radio (NR) network emulation solutions for protocol and RF performance validation in sub-6GHz frequency bands (FR1).

OPPO said it had completed one of the world’s first 5G signaling and data connections on a smartphone in August and became the first company to complete a 5G Internet access test on a smartphone in October. This latest milestone of completing the world’s first multiparty 5G video call once again demonstrates 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 handsets commercially in 2019.

“5G is a trend OPPO must embrace. In addition to striving to become the first manufacturer to launch 5G smartphones, OPPO’s exploration of application opportunities in the 5G+ era will ultimately determine the value of 5G,” Tony Chen, Founder, President and CEO of OPPO stressed at the recent 2018 OPPO Technology Exhibition in Shenzhen, “OPPO will fully integrate 5G with applications and user insights, and continuously innovate to provide users with revolutionary, necessary, convenient and seamless experiences.”
