OPPO Guangdong Mobile Communications Co., Ltd. announced today that the company successfully completed the 5G connection signaling and data links based on commercially available 5G smartphone developed on the basis of OPPO R15, which integrates the leading Qualcomm Opteron X50 5G modem to fully validate the relevant technologies that can be used to accelerate the development of 5G smartphones.
Commercial 5G terminal developed based on OPPO R15
OPPO’s 5G signaling and data link connection based on R15 is also the first to use 5G signaling and data links for commercial mobile phones. It is also the first LTE based on non-independent networking (NSA) standard in China. NR (EN-DC) double connection.
Of course, this is inseparable from the leading Qualcomm SnapdragonTM X50 5G modem, which is also an important carrier for OPPO R15 to achieve 5G signaling and data link connection. Last year, Qualcomm became the first company to release a 5G modem chipset. The ability to achieve product release to functional chips in twelve months is a good indication that Qualcomm’s leading edge in cellular technology is currently extending to 5G.
The Xiaolong X50 5G new air interface modem series will support 5G smartphones and networks commercially launched in the first half of 2019. At the end of 2017, Qualcomm also demonstrated the Gigabit download rate by using several 100MHz 5G carriers in the event of the X50 Modem, and demonstrated the data connection in the 28 GHz millimeter wave band.
Therefore, the OPPO was able to successfully communicate communications and data links for the first time. In addition to its own efforts, of course, in January this year, OPPO and other manufacturers jointly launched Qualcomm Technologies’ 5G pilot program, which is committed to becoming 2019. The first batch of terminal manufacturers that launched 5G mobile phones have been working hard.
Liu Chang, dean of the OPPO Research Institute, said: “The opening of signaling and data links is the basis for ensuring reliable communication functions for 5G mobile phones, and is also an important step for 5G smart phones to mature. OPPO is based on 5G signaling and data that can be completed by commercial mobile phones. The link will be fully accelerated to accelerate the development of our 5G smartphones and lay a solid foundation for the release of commercially available 5G products in 2019.”
OPPO successfully implements signaling and data link based on LTE Band 5 and 5G NR n78
The successful completion of this signaling and data link is based on the 3GPP Release 15 NSA standard, which uses 10MHz bandwidth of 4G LTE Band 5 and 20MHz bandwidth of 5G NR n78 band. Among them, the n78 frequency band is one of the most widely used 5G NR bands in the world. It is also considered to be the most promising frequency band in the world. It is of great significance to the commercialization of the first batch of 5G products, and Qualcomm has been accelerating 5G in 2019. The new air interface plays an important role in the process of pre-commercialization.
