OnePlus to invest up to USD 30 mn in 5G research and development labs
Chinese mobile phone maker OnePlus which is soon due to launch its OnePlus 8 5G phones globally, said on Thursday that it had been investing almost USD 30 million to scale up 5G research and development labs.

OnePlus has been conducting 5G testing efforts at the R&D centre in Hyderabad that was established this past year, the statement said, apart from its Shenzen and Taipei labs.

"Having started 5G research as early as 2016, OnePlus plans to increase its plans to push 5G research and development forward, allowing OnePlus users to take pleasure from fast and smooth activities on 5G," the business said in a statement.

Pete Lau, founder and ceo of OnePlus, said 5G is a high priority in the company's product strategy.

"We have been investing in 5G for a long time, and we plan to further develop application scenarios predicated on the daily consumption habits of users, such as for example cloud gaming, cloud videos and cloud storage services," he added.

Supporting both hardware and software research and development, OnePlus' 5G labs, situated in Shenzhen and Taipei, would mainly focus on improving user experiences of 5G technology on OnePlus' devices.

The scope of OnePlus 5G labs includes research and development (R&D) in areas such as for example radio frequency circuits, antennas and multimedia (camera, audio tracks and display).

The labs also conduct software research for communication protocol, throughput optimisation, performance, power, stability and user scenario testing. They are able to also support regulation recognition and operator access pre-testing, assisting to push the 5G adoption forward.
