If you’re a tech enthusiast, it’s likely that you won’t be able to go through a week before someone mentions 5G. Unsurprising, since the wireless tech is all the rage right now. So much so that pretty much every exhibitor here at MWC Shanghai is showcasing nothing but their own ideas of 5G tech implementation.
Most of these have to do with industrial and enterprise applications, though. But as you probably know, we were at Vivo’s booth to see what the company has to show us.
In general, there seems to be a lot of improving existing tech using 5G. For example, there’s the the expansion of smart home and IoT applications from WiFi networks to 5G.
As part of this, there’s the video game streaming via 5G, much like Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud.
In between the two showcase areas is the station where vivo demonstrated the AR Glass‘ object recognition ability. The facial recognition station sits on the other side.
And finally, there’s demonstration of Vivo’s Super FlashCharge, the 120W charging tech that fully recharges a 4000mAh battery in 13 minutes.
In an event that’s not only 5G-centric but also mostly catering to the industrial side of things, it’s nice to see a number of things here that a consumer can expect to benefit from. It’s also great that there’s at least one tech being demoed that does not rely on 5G first being mainstream before we can enjoy it.
