5G smartphones have taken over the global rollout of mobile handsets.

5G revenues are expected to jump substantially in the next year as the growth of 5G continues to take precedence over legacy communication standards and other standards are phased out completely. This is despite a downturn in the overall smartphone market.

The next phase of smartphones is expected to bring faster downloads and a higher level of latency with the proliferation of millimeter wave (mmWave) technology. Additionally, the market will continue to see cheaper smartphones as communications vendors push to lower the average selling price (ASP) on mobile handsets to appeal to greater masses.

The Oppo Reno 8 Pro smartphone is priced in this area with a sub $600 price point that will appeal to a target audience beyond high-end early adopters. The phone features a Qualcomm baseband processor, Samsung NAND flash and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) from Bosch.
