Chinese smartphone company Oppo has announced a collaboration with UAE-based Etisalat to test the compatibility of its 5G phones on the local 5G network.
This is the first 5G smartphone test between carrier and smartphone in the GCC region, the 5G MENA 2019 summit held in Dubai.
"While the underlying 5G network infrastructure is vital to a connected future, the capacity of super-powerful 5G networks only matters when people can leverage these benefits in their everyday lives,” said Andy Shi, president of Oppo Middle East & Africa. “This makes the pivot to 5G all the more important to our industry.”
