OPPO announced that its first 5G smartphone has successfully passed 5G CE tests conducted by Sporton International Inc., a global inspection services authority, and was awarded a 5G CE certificate by CTC advanced GmbH. OPPO’s 5G smartphone, which was showcased at MWC 2019, is also the first multi-frequency, multi-mode, and multi-EN-DC combination 5G smartphone to be approved by CTC. The phone maintains the advantages of the n78 band – such as more band combinations and broader bandwidth, which can be applied across a more full range of countries and regions.
An integral step towards the commercial launch of its 5G smartphone in Europe, OPPO’s CE certification verifies that the OPPO 5G device is compliant with EU requirements essential for entering European markets in areas such as wireless, electromagnetic compatibility, health, and safety.
Alen Wu, OPPO Global Vice President, Head of overseas business markets said, “This is another significant milestone in 5G development for OPPO. Through ongoing technological innovation, we have been preparing extensively for the realization of 5G smartphone commercialization. OPPO looks forward to continued cooperation with strong partners like Sporton that will enable consumers to get closer to 5G.”
Mr. Ivan Xie, Chief of Operation and Engineering, Sporton International, Inc. said, “We were pleased to see OPPO’s 5G smartphone perform exceptionally during the stringent tests. The results are a testament to OPPO’s technological capability and great news for users and industry alike. Drawing on our rich experience in wireless communication, Sporton will continue to collaborate with OPPO to usher in the future of 5G connectivity.”
As an advocate and a pioneer in 5G technology, OPPO has helped shape the next generation of connectivity through contributions in standards research, software and hardware development, deep consumer insight and a robust ecosystem of strong industry partners. The company recently launched its “5G Landing Project” with several operator partners to accelerate the commercialization of 5G products and services worldwide. OPPO plans to bring its first 5G smartphone to market in the first half of 2019.
