New Delhi : Indeed a great news for people associated with OPPO as the smartphone company has successfully completed the world's first 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 video call using WeChat, a popular Chinese social media app, with an inaugural message of "Hello OPPO, Hello 5G".

According to the video 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. People who participated in the video call 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, therefore, became the world’s first 5G signalling 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. The latest development of successfully 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.

OPPO is focused on the relentless development in 5G technologies. “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.”
