Towards the end of the year, Oppo is holding a technology exhibition. The exhibition titled Oppo Inno Day 2019 was held at China Resources Tower, Shenzhen, China, on Tuesday.
Focusing on 5G and IoT technology, this is the first time Oppo Inno Day was held. Previously, Oppo's brand-new technology was exhibited in the Mobile World Congress which takes place in Barcelona each year.
One of the new technologies being introduced is the AR glasses called the Oppo AR Smart Glasses. This is Oppo's first AR smart glasses supported by augmented reality or multiple reality technology.
This Oppo AR smart glass is equipped with a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor to measure the depth of objects and present three-dimensional reconstruction of the surrounding environment. These smart glasses also support 3D Surround Sound to provide 3D sound effects.
Oppo also introduced 5G CPE, a smart router that can become a center of connectivity to connect between devices such as smart office and smart home. Oppo 5G CPE will convert the 5G network into a WiFi signal.
Oppo Vice President, Head of Research Institute of Oppo, Levin Liu, said, Oppo 5G PCE can be accessed by more than 1000 devices with two network modes, namely standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA). This Smart Router is controlled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 chipset.
