5G is the ongoing trend in the smartphone industry and almost all the leading smartphone manufacturers have been trying their level best to adapt to the latest 5G technology. We have seen plenty of 5G smartphones getting launched lately. Furthermore, telecom service providers across the world are also working on expanding their 5G network bandwidth and reach. Telcos like AT&T in the US have extended the 5G coverage to 22 more cities in the states. Considering the trend, Chinese smartphone manufacturer OPPO has been successful in conducting voice and video calls based on the 5G network. The company partnered with MediaTek and Ericson to conduct the test. Take a look at the VoNR test that OPPO has conducted recently.
OPPO Successful in Conducting VoNR on an OPPO Reno 3 Device
OPPO recently shared a press release, which confirms that OPPO has successfully conducted the VoNR test on an OPPO Reno 3 5G smartphone. While the release does not explicitly mention OPPO Reno 3 as the test device, since it is the only OPPO smartphone that runs on the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 chipset, we can safely assume that the brand made use of a modified version of the OPPO Reno 3 5G to conduct the test.
In case you are wondering as to what VoNR is, it is a new technology that solely relies on the 5G network to make calls. Contrary to older call services, VoNR offers significantly lower levels of latency and offers greatly improved video and sound quality, thereby ensuring an enhanced overall user experience.
Addressing the recent test, OPPO Vice President and President of the Software Engineering Business Unit, Andy Wu, said the following:
as a leading global technology company, OPPO proactively works to accelerate large-scale commercialization of 5G. Our cooperation with Ericsson and MediaTek on VoNR is part of our in-depth collaborations in the 5G era. We aim to become the industry’s ideal partner to deploy 5G around the world and at the same time improve 5G experience for users
The voice and video calls that OPPO conducted on its OPPO Reno 3 were conducted in a 5G standalone network environment provided by Ericsson at its headquarters, located in Stockholm, Sweden. The press release also says that the two devices that were used in the test were connected almost instantaneously after dialing and were able to switch to a high-definition video call with a single tap.
Coming to the specifications of the OPPO Reno 3 smartphone, the device is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1000L processor, which is paired with 8GB/12GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The device comes with a 6.5-inch OLED display with an under-display fingerprint scanner and a waterdrop notch at the top. The waterdrop notch makes room for a 32MP selfie snapper. Moving around on the rear of the device, the OPPO Reno 3 features a quad-camera setup which includes a 64MP primary Sony IMX686 sensor, an 8MP sensor with an ultra-wide lens, a monochrome sensor and a depth sensor. On the software side of things, the OPPO Reno 3 runs the latest Android 10 OS out of the box with the company’s proprietary ColorOS 7 skin baked on top of it.
