OPPO announced its partnership with Ericsson and MediaTek, as the said companies have successfully conducted VoNR (Voice/Video on New Radio) calls solely based on the next-generation 5G network, bringing high-quality 5G experience closer to reality.
The calls were made on a modified commercial smartphone from OPPO featuring MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000 series SoC using an end-to-end 5G Standalone(SA) network powered by Ericsson Radio System products and solutions.
VoNR is a basic call service that completely relies on the 5G network, specifically with SA architecture which is known as one of the mainstream architectures of future 5G networks. Compared with earlier call services, VoNR provides significantly lower latency, along with greatly improved sound quality and picture quality, resulting in an elevated overall experience for users.
As one of the first mobile phone brands to support VoNR calls under the SA architecture, OPPO aims to ensure that even the early adopters can have a more complete 5G experience. Through this effort, OPPO primes itself as the mobile partner of choice for operators and communication equipment suppliers building 5G networks worldwide, given the increasing demand on higher technology capability made accessible by smartphone brands.
The successful joint test was carried out under the 5G SA network environment provided by Ericsson at its headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden. After dialing, the two phones connected almost instantly and then seamlessly switched to a high-definition video call with a single keypress.
OPPO has been at the forefront in the development and implementation of 5G technology. At present, OPPO hosts over 10,000 R&D staff, four research centers, and six research institutes around the world. OPPO founder and CEO Tony Chen pointed out that OPPO will invest 50 billion yuan in R&D in three years to promote research in 5G, artificial intelligence, AR, big data and other fields, as well as building core underlying hardware technologies and software engineering ability. With OPPO’s continuous R&D efforts and broad collaboration with industry partners, the future is closer to reality for its users around the world.
