Three of today’s most prominent smartphone brands, OPPO, Vivo, and Xiaomi are teaming up to bring a new wireless file transfer system to allow seamless multi-brand file transfers with one tap.
The “Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance” aims to allow users of the three brands to easily transfer a range of files, including photos, videos, and documents without using any third party applications.
The move is being made in anticipation of 5G adoption, in which file sizes are expected to increase.
As far as the technology is concerned, it’s expected to utilize Bluetooth for fast pairing, and WiFi P2P for data transfer, for high-speed transmission with low power consumption. As for speed, it’s an average of 20MB/s. As this doesn’t interrupt WiFi connection, users can stay connected and continue their activities while the transfer is in progress.
This feature is just the start of perhaps more collaborations between the three brands, and is expected to roll out on new Vivo products starting February 2020.
