The other demo included vivo NEX 5G smartphone, which is basically a vivo NEX S unit with the Snapdragon X50 modem. It was constantly streaming live footage from a camera, demonstrating the lack of any package loss during the video transfer through the China Mobile 5G antennas.

Another company that revealed its 5G advances was Xiaomi. We already told you about that one - the Mi Mix 3 5G will arrive in Q1 2019 with the next-gen connectivity and Snapdragon 855 without changing the actual form factor. Oppo and vivo, on the other hand, are yet to introduce an actual 5G-based device, but we expect official announcements in early 2019.

Hi, I am from the future. 5G or even 6G is the future. Embrace it and get over it.
