Dubai, 25 March 2010: OPPO announced today 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. As an advocate and a pioneer in 5G technology, OPPO is accelerating the development of 5G smartphones to bring its first 5G smartphone to market in the first half of 2019.
As the Middle East region gears up to embrace 5G, the UAE and Saudi Arabia are well positioned to be among the first countries in the world to deliver the benefits of 5G.
OPPO remains committed to being one of the key contributors to the 5G ecosystem in the region and is helping shape the next generation of connectivity through contributions in research, software and hardware development, deep consumer insight and a robust ecosystem of strong industry partners.

Through ongoing technological innovation, we have been preparing extensively for the realization of 5G smartphone commercialization.
