Following the recent launch of 5G operations by Chinese phone maker Oppo, the company has announced that it will launch a Qualcomm-powered dual-mode 5G smartphone in December in the Chinese mainland.
With the new smartphone, OPPO is aiming to deliver an enhanced 5G experience to users and accelerate 5G adoption among a wider base of consumers. The OPPO 5G dual-mode smartphone will also be launched in multiple markets across the world.
On May 1st, OPPO and Swisscom jointly launched OPPO Reno 5G, the first commercial 5G smartphone available in European markets. Within the GCC, the smartphone was unveiled in September.
OPPO is a pioneer in 5G smartphones and connectivity, and is a key contributor to the standardization of 5G. The company had announced its “5G Landing Project” with leading operator partners in the GCC earlier in 2019 to accelerate the commercialization of 5G products and services worldwide.
Recently, OPPO Vice President Alen Wu indicated in an interview that all OPPO smartphones priced upwards of AED 1,500 in the Chinese mainland will have a 5G version next year.
