vivo has announced that it has worked with Qualcomm to design and integrate 5G millimeter wave antenna arrays into a “commercial form factor” as well as a method of measuring system-level over-the-air performance.

mm-Wave spectrum spans from 30GHz to 300GHz and should offer terrific signal in a concentrated area. It’s hoped that the 5G standard will bring multi-gigabit speeds to users for cellular streaming of UHD and mixed-reality content as well as the bandwidth for continuous data streams for Internet of Things devices. A lot of 5G work being done in the United States is starting from the sub-6GHz space for launch late this year or early next year, though carriers are staking out spots from 20GHz to 100GHz.

Dr. Huan-Chu Huang, vivo’s Antenna Technical Director, says that we should look out for actual commercialization shortly.

After this successful completion of 5G mm-Wave antenna design and measurement based on a Vivo commercial form factor, consumers will soon see the next round of new device designs offering superior performance benefits and a taste of the next generation mobile experience.

vivo was first to tease out an in-display fingerprint sensor in a commercial form factor as well.
