“We at OPPO have worked relentlessly to ensure that all our 5G-enabled devices are equipped to support 5G growth,” said Oppo India in a tweet, which was retweeted by Airtel. On its website, Airtel has listed all the compatible 5G phones and they include nearly all Oppo 5G phones, such as the Reno 8 Pro, Reno 8, F21s Pro, K10, F21 Pro, and A74 among others. “The Airtel 5G Plus technology is compatible with all 5G Ready smartphones,” Airtel said on its website.

Airtel 5G Plus service has started rolling out in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Siliguri, Nagpur, and Varanasi. This means that Oppo 5G phone users in these cities have either already started using or will be able to use Airtel 5G Plus without needing to install a software update. Phones from other brands, on the other hand, need a software update to enable 5G services. For instance, Realme is in the process of rolling out the software update and Apple is allegedly testing 5G support for compatible iPhone models.
