Vivo has announced its plans to spearhead the development of pre-commercial 5G devices by introducing ground-breaking 5G software and hardware based on the Vivo NEX series. The company has already completed the initial development of 5G smartphone software and hardware. Running on the X50 modem from Qualcomm, Vivo has already finished initial architecture planning, 3D placement stacking, RF /antenna designs and optimized battery space within NEX to deliver 5G capabilities. In fact, the 5G version of the NEX has already passed the first phase of protocol and signaling tests with Keysight UXM 5G Signaling. The next step would be IODT tests with 5G infrastructure and networking equipment. The company is pushing to launch its first batch of commercial 5G smartphones by 2019. The 5G version of the NEX supports the non-standalone architecture (NSA) model, which includes dual connection for both LTE and New Radio (NR) based on 3GPP Release 15 Standards.…

As the era of 5G draws near, companies are starting to invest more on figuring out how current and next gen mobile devices can take advantage of this technology. In fact, OPPO has been able to successfully access 5G signaling and data links using commercially available mobile devices. The connection was implemented using a device that’s based on the OPPO R15, and makes use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem. This breakthrough was based on the 3GPP Release 15 NSA Standard, using the 10 MHz bandwidth in 4G LTE Band 5 and the 20MHz bandwidth in 5G NR n78, which is one of most widely used 5G NR frequency in the world, and is also considered as to be the most likely band or priority deployment worldwide. 5G is set to improve all networking aspects, including speed, stability, reliability, and latency, paving the way for a variety of new experiences…

OPPO has been focusing on technology innovation in the past which has laid great foundations for 5G related R&D. In the future, OPPO will continue to invest in groundbreaking technologies such as 5G and Artificial Intelligence, and apply these to product scenarios based on the core needs of users. In 2018, OPPO will speed up entry into global markets, and specifically enter more developed countries like Japan, to provide smartphones featuring advanced technologies and artistic design to more users in the…

Through a demo which was conducted at the Nokia Manila Technology Center in Quezon City, Nokia and Smart have just made another mark in history as for the first time in PH, they were able to achieve 5G speeds of 2.5Gbps over a live network with a latency of just 1 millisecond! 5G opens up a lot of opportunities such as remote surgery, industrial production using real-time responsive robots, vr, and autonomous driving. Powered by the Nokia OZO Virtual Reality Camera, the demo focused on broadcasting immersive 3D 360 VR content. The demo also made use of the Nokia AirFrame Data Center platform for the low latency requirements. We are excited to work with Nokia in conducting cutting-edge research and development for 5G. This is a key part of our efforts to transform the PLDT and Smart network into the country’s most future-ready data infrastructure delivering a wide range of…

Here’s our take on the hands-on gameplay and the insights from the press interview. We also  figured a listicle is in order to rundown why this game will match the hype surrounding it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aW5nJDiaWf4 Here’s our Top 5 reasons why “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice” is to die for. 1) The game is Tenchu-inspired If you’ve played any of the Tenchu games in previous game consoles, you know that the use of the grappling hook to set-up a one-slash-stealth kills from above is a hallmark of the series. Zipping to rooftops and treetops will be the go-to move in this game to get rid of sentries. And yes, those ever-so glorious decapitations and dismemberments with the stealth kill are present. 2) Casual or hardcore can play From…
