For the first time in the history of Smartphone technology, a multiparty video conferencing call was completed on a 5G network and smartphone technology maker, OPPO, achieved this feat.
OPPO is gaining attention for its classy smartphone designs, camera quality, seamless user experience and most recently, its 5G capabilities.
Engineers from six 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 in the year, OPPO also completed the 5G signaling and data connections on a smartphone.
Completing the first multiparty 5G video call on a smartphone, shows the firm’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.
Founder, President and CEO of OPPO, Tony Chen, stressed at the recent 2018 OPPO Technology Exhibition in Shenzhen that “OPPO will fully integrate 5G with applications and user insights, and continuously innovate to provide users with revolutionary, necessary, convenient and seamless experiences.”
