OPPO hasn't shared any concrete details about the Qualcomm's 5G modem that will supply power to the company's upcoming 5G smartphone. However, there are only two 5G modems in the Qualcomm's current portfolio of 5G-enabled chipsets- the X50 and the X55 Modem.

The Snapdragon X55 5G modem supports virtually any combination of spectrum bands and/or modes: 5G mm Wave and sub-6 GHz, standalone and non-standalone modes, TDD and FDD, spectrum sharing, LTE and legacy modes (3G, 2G).

With up to 7Gbps speed, the Snapdragon X55 5G modem-RF system can provide a near-instant connection between the user and the cloud.

The company is expected to introduce multiple 5G products to its global markets in the coming year. The company's current 5G portfolio comprises of OPPO Reno 5G. It is touted as the first 5G handset to be commercially available in Europe.
