Tencent "the first line" Bu Xiang
On August 30, vivo announced that based on the latest flagship mobile phone vivo NEX platform, vivo has initially completed commercial-oriented software and hardware development for 5G smartphones, including architecture planning, motherboard stacking, radio frequency and antenna design, as well as battery space optimization, and has reached the size and appearance of the work. Commercial level.
Next, the vivo 5G mobile phone will enter the testing phase of network device integration. After years of research and development, vivo is expected to launch the first commercial 5G phone in the world.
With the increasing competition of technology, many mobile phones are competing for the concept of 5G.
Vivo is one of the earliest mobile phone companies to develop 5G in China. Not long after the 5G vision was proposed by ITU, vivo launched the 5G R&D layout. In 2016, vivo set up a 5G R & D center in Beijing to take part in the research of 5G core technology standards. In 2017, vivo has become one of the largest mobile phone companies with the greatest contribution of 3GPP technology. In 2017, vivo launched the pre research of 5G antenna and RF key technologies.
In the aspect of 5G mobile phone production, vivo also cooperates closely with telecom operators and chip solution manufacturers to promote the development of 5G prototype and commercial mobile phone.
Shen Wei, founder and CEO of vivo, believes that the advent of the 5G era is a new opportunity for the mobile phone market. The combination of 5G and artificial intelligence technology will enable smartphones to evolve into a new phase of smartphones. 5G smartphones will become the center of smart perception, control center and service center.
In December 2017, Shen Weiwei revealed at the International Mobile Industry Leaders Summit that vivo will launch 5G handsets in 2018 and participate in the carrier's 5G network testing; in 2019, vivo will launch 5G pre-commercial handsets; and in 2020, with the scale of China's 5G network commercialization, vivo will officially launch 5G commercial handsets.
Recently, China's 5G industry has entered the sprint stage. In August, the Ministry of industry and the Ministry of development and Reform Commission made it clear that 5G business should be implemented before 2020. The official of the Ministry of industry and Commerce disclosed that the frequency resource allocation of operators will be completed in the near future.
In the commercial process of 5G network, the maturity of terminal is very important to the early development of 5G industry. This version of vivo's 5G terminal supports both LTE and NR connections in NSA mode, which means that 5G phones can connect to 4G while simultaneously connecting to 5G new air and network connections. Users enjoy all the mature and stable 4G communications, while the Internet speed has increased several times, the service delay has also improved significantly.
Experts predict that the popularity of 4G has boosted the development of mobile Internet, and all kinds of APP have sprung up rapidly, bringing convenience to public life. In the 5G era, higher data rates and lower traffic costs will truly make it possible for all users to be online anytime.
The 5G and AI enabled smartphones will bring more business application development space, mobile phones will become the smart perception center, smart control center and smart service center. The development of the vivo 5G mobile phone has taken a solid step towards its 5G smartphone vision, and the 5G is getting closer and closer to consumers.
