OPPO Find X7 Ultra

Forget 5G, something spicier is coming. 5G-Advanced, also known as 5.5G or 5GA, is the next standard in mobile connectivity. We have already seen many reports earlier suggesting the amount of work tech companies are putting into making the 5.5G possible. Now, another advancement is done as the first smartphones in the industry are announced to get 5.5G support. It may come as a surprise that the Oppo Find X7 series is the first one in industry to get the latest connectivity option.

Talking about 5.5G, it is going to be a step forward in getting better speed but also overall improving the network. On paper, the 5.5G network boasts speeds that are 300% faster, reaching up to 10Gbps download and 1Gbps upload. That’s not it, the two other highlighting features of the 5G-Advanced are slicing and artificial intelligence (AI) which overall improves the network connectivity. China Mobile is making all of this possible through dedicated efforts. Their initial focus is on covering over 300 major cities by the end of 2024. Their initial focus will be on major metropolises like Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou for network coverage.
