At the Qualcomm booth at Fira Barcelona Gran Via, the venue of MWC 2019 in Spain, OPPO showed off some particularly exciting possibilities that super-fast 5G networks might bring customers.

One use case that OPPO sees is using advanced cellular networks to deliver high-end, PC-quality graphics and smoother gaming experiences via a cloud-gaming or cloud-computing platform. But while the idea of using cloud servers to stream PC games on portable devices isn’t new, OPPO’s involvement could mean better experiences on its 5G smartphones.

This shifts the focus from developing smartphone internals that can match the processing power of PCs to enabling 5G on mainstream devices and improving the services on which games will be played. The technology is definitely still in its early stages, but it’s promising already. Check out the embedded video below to see OPPO’s 5G-phone prototype and cloud platform in action.

We’re told the server used for this demo was from a company called Shadow, which is based in Amsterdam. Meanwhile, the 5G network the phone was connected to was powered by Ericsson. The phone was using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor coupled with a 5G modem also developed by the mobile chip-maker. 

OPPO says it will continue to explore cloud gaming on mobile devices. With commercial networks around the world promising to upgrade to 5G this year, or shortly thereafter, and mobile gaming estimated to grow exponentially over the next few years, it’s easy to see why.
