Hyderabad: Smartphone maker OPPO’s 5G lab in Hyderabad has achieved yet another milestone. The company’s lab in the city has conducted the first VoNR call thus strengthening OPPO’s vision of high-quality 5G communication. The VoNR call was conducted in partnership with Keysight Technologies.
The 5G VoNR (Voice/Video on New Radio) calls were made using the latest Reno6 series smartphone and an end-to-end 5G Standalone (SA) network powered by Keysight test solutions at the Hyderabad 5G Innovation lab of OPPO.
VoNR is a basic call service that fully utilises the SA architecture of the 5G network. Compared with earlier call services, VoNR provides significantly lower latency, greatly improved sound quality and picture quality, resulting in an elevated overall experience for users.
Tasleem Arif, vice-president, India R&D Head, OPPO India, said, “The VoNR call from our Hyderabad-based 5G lab is another milestone in OPPO’s innovation journey. As the 5G pioneer in India, the team is making great strides to explore the true potential of 5G technology and bring a better 5G experience to Indian consumers.”
As one of the first mobile phone brands in India to support VoNR calls under the SA architecture, OPPO aims to ensure that once commercialised every adopter can have a complete 5G device experience.
