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.

Founder, President and CEO of the company, Tony Chen, said that “completing the first multiparty 5G video call on a smartphone further shows our 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”.
