Oppo, the Chinese smartphone maker has achieved one of its biggest milestones. Oppo has announced that it successfully completed the world’s first multiparty video call on a smartphone via a 5G network at 12:57 am local time.

Announcing to the world on the milestone 5G video call, Oppo’s Vice President Shen Yiren took to the microblogging platform Weibo alerting the world of the world’s first WeChat video call using a 5G smartphone.

The company further added that engineers from six OPPO R&D institutes situated across the world participated in the video call using the WeChat app, which is a popular Chinese social media application. The inaugural message of the call was “Hello OPPO, Hello 5G”. Oppo released footage of the video call which was made through an Oppo R15 Pro-based 5G smartphone while the call lasted for more than 17 minutes on the network having a bandwidth of 100 MHz.

For the 5G test, Oppo used Keysight’s UXM test set and 5G New Radio (NR) network emulation solutions for protocol and RF performance validation in sub-6GHz frequency bands (FR1), added company’s statement.

In May 2018, Oppo had first announced the successful implementation of the world’s first 5G video call demonstration using 3D structured light technology. In October, it successfully completed 5G internet access for the first time in a lab test using a custom-made Oppo R15. This is one of the major milestones according to Oppo, as they try to become one of the first manufacturers to launch a fully-5G enabled smartphone in 2019.
