2018 has been a big year for OPPO when it comes to their 5G technology. In May 2018, they announced the world’s first 5G video call demo using 3D structured light. The demonstration reproduced a 3D portrait image on a remote receiver using portrait information collected structured-light 3D camera of a customized OPPO R11s and 5G NR terminal prototypes from Qualcomm Technologies.
In October 2018, they announced that an OPPO smartphone has successfully completed 5G Internet access for the first time. OPPO made the connection successfully between an R15 smartphone terminal and the 5G network, in their 5G communication protocol laboratory environment.
Then in December 2018, OPPO created the OPPO Find X 5G prototype, with an engineering sample of the Snapdragon 855 and X50 5G modem, and used it to demonstrate 5G data connectivity and applications including browsing, online video replay, and video call.
Fast forward to the present, at the OPPO Innovation Event in Barcelona, Spain, the company presented its first 5G smartphone that is powered by Qualcomm. OPPO has already solved the technical challenges involving antenna design. baseband, RF, heating, and power consumption.

OPPO looks forward to the application of 5G which involves 5G Cloud Gaming and has already started cooperating with leading software developers to develop 5G cloud games and realize 3A level game experience on mobile phones by taking advantage of 5G technology’s features of high throughput and low delay.
There’s also the 5G Image Stitching and 5G AI Deep Learning Retouch Image that uses cloud computing to apply visual techniques then transmit it to smartphones through the 5G network.
OPPO also sees IoT grow once 5G rolls out. In January 2019, OPPO established the Intelligent Mobile Devices Business Unit aiming at providing devices that have the capability of being a portal of an IoT network. OPPO has also built an open IoT platform to empower developers and partners to deliver more products and services.
