Following its announcement of its 5G-ready smartphones at MWC this year, OPPO has finally made the Reno 5G commercially available in Switzerland. The launch made OPPO the first smartphone brand to offer a 5G product in the European market. Additionally, the company is looking to roll out this revolutionary product to more markets around the globe, including the Philippines.
The Reno series
OPPO first building its 5G technology, creating a dedicated 5G team, in 2015. Since then, it has been investing heavily in next-generation technology across various areas such as R&D, standardization, and application.
As a result, OPPO was able to launch the Reno series. This new line of mobile devices boasts cutting-edge technology, exceptional photography, and unique aesthetic design. These smartphones also sports a front-facing camera setup–along with the soft light and back flash–in a pivot rising structure that appears only when needed.
The Reno series include the Reno and Reno 10x Zoom, both available in the Philippines starting June 21. This line also features the Reno 5G model.
But that is not all that OPPO wants to embark on in the coming days; the smartphone brand is now looking forward to pioneer 6G technology. At the 53rd IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC), OPPO laid out its vision for a s future of connected intelligence. The 53rd IEEE ICC was held in Shanghai from May 20 to 24.
Henry Tang, Director of Standards Research and Chief 5G Scientist at OPPO, delivered a keynote speech at the conference underscoring OPPO’s commitment to driving future generations of connectivity. Tang offered a preview of a future where, “after the launch of 5G, as AI and telecommunications technologies continue to empower and improve each other, they will enable true interconnectivity between humans, things and intelligence.”
In the said future, 5G will strengthen existing AI technology for human and system interaction. Meanwhile, 6G will enable a more intelligent system that allows business to run largely without human intervention. The 6G network will be AI-driven “smart” transmissions. This means devices will be capable of sharing and conveying AI messages among themselves. However, the industry needs to overcome a series of challenges to boost performance. It still has to improve speed, latency, reliability, coverage, energy efficiency, connection density, accuracy, and security.
“With the iterative evolution of technologies, the whole of human society–and indeed the world around us–will realize an unprecedented level of interconnectivity. We at OPPO welcome and embrace this exciting new opportunity to help usher in a new era of connected intelligence,” Tang added.
