The test is an important step for the brand in terms of 5G development in the country. Oppo is one of the many brands readying themselves for an eventual launch of a 5G network in India. Brands like Realme and iQOO have already launched 5G-enabled smartphones in India. Meanwhile, Xiaomi is expected to soon launch a 5G device of its own. The phone likely used by Oppo is the upcoming Find X2, the brand’s new flagship 5G device. The Oppo Find X2 is soon expected to make its global debut. It will also later arrive in India.

Oppo has been trying a lot of strategies in India recently. There is an ongoing investment of Rs 2,200 crore in the country and the Chinese brand manufactures 50 million smartphones each year in its Greater Noida factory.
