Oppo Will Launch Its 5G-Ready Devices And Wireless Charging Tech As Competition Gets Tighter

OPPO's 5G enabled devices ready to flock the smartphone market

The market competition for 5G-ready smartphones is getting tighter as tech giants like Samsung and Huawei have already launched their versions of 5G devices. Along with them, Oppo, another global market leader in low- and medium-range smartphones have also announced that it is embracing the technology soon enough.

The company has made public their partnership with Qualcomm, and their plan to use their Snapdragon 855 processor and X50 5G modem in Oppo’s 5G devices.

Oppo has invested heavily in research and testing on 5G since 2015. Last year in October, Oppo completed 5G connection tests on a smartphone, two months after their successful 5G signaling and data connection in August. Another milestone for Oppo is its successful multi-party WeChat video call on a 5G network a few months ago.

The global tech company also is venturing on wireless charging, as it is one of the few who has not introduced the technology in the market yet. Experts argue that competition will trample Oppo down if it does not follow the pace of other tech giants like Samsung.

In January, Oppo joined the world’s Wireless Power Consortium but has since been quiet about the development of their wireless charging technology. According to Oppo’s Chuck Wang, the company that has become a popular alternative for high range phones in South and Southeast Asia is, ‘working on it.’

Wang says that “because wireless charging has to consider the mechanical design of the smartphone as well as the power efficiency of the device [and] to provide better user experiences, we [have] to make a lot of optimizations just like what we have done with the 10x lossless zoom technology.”

“We are trying to get it near perfection. When we realize that we will be ready to provide this technology to our friends from media outlets and to realize mass production.”

Before the end of 2018, Oppo said that they have 5G-ready prototypes based on its premium FindX smartphone which they launched last year.

Oppo’s competition like Samsung and Huawei have already launched their 5G phone – Samsung S10 and Huawei Mate.

In response to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold launching, Huawei, another global smartphone leader, launched its Mate X smartphone, as it teased the arrival of its photography-focused P30 Series in March.

During the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, Shenzen-based, Huawei prided and highlighted its 5G technology. The company is now the second largest smartphone maker in the world.

As global sales for smartphones declined, Huawei and global market leader, Samsung are racing to innovate smartphones in their bid to be the best.

Studies have suggested that users nowadays are holding on to their handsets longer and are avoiding the yearly upgrade cycle.

Samsung, on the other hand, was poised to become the leader in foldable phones market.

Unlike Huawei and Apple (who also announced its plan to release a foldable phone after 2020), Samsung primarily developed its displays. As a matter of fact, the Samsung Display is already the market leader for OLED phone screens. That is why it is not surprising that the Korean company is ready to support foldable iPhones and Pixel phones shortly. Reports even suggest that Samsung has already sent samples of their foldable screens to Apple and Google earlier this year.

Samsung was said to be interested in partnering with Google and Apple on its journey to lead the market for foldable phone displays. The global tech leader has reportedly supplied Apple with a 7.2-inch foldable display screen for iPhones. It is a 0.1-inch smaller than Samsung’s Galaxy Fold. Rumors have it that Samsung also sent Google with samples as well.

“We know that Samsung Display has supplied a set of foldable drives to Apple and Google in order to fully expand its folder-based display business and uncover customers,” an industry source familiar with the Samsung Foldable Display said.

Apple is expected to launch its version of a foldable phone shortly; however, reports suggest that it will not be sooner than 2020. The latest iPhone launch, the iPhone XS, still carries the design and specs of older versions of iPhone X series.

On the other hand, Google has started working with Samsung on optimizing Android for flagship handsets and plans to develop a third operating system (like iOS and Android) that will work on any device – including foldable phones.

The R17 series also features gradient colors for the industrial design. It has invented a three-color and quad-direction gradient design that allows light to smoothly flow on its surface giving an original and fresh color aesthetic. It also has a highly innovated fingerprint feature using the Corning Gorilla Glass 6 which is a first on all of its models with a hidden fingerprint unlock.
