To help demonstrate the power of 5G, enter the OPPO 5G Hotel – a 40’ luxury container ‘tiny home’ that will travel Australia for the next six months.
The OPPO 5G hotel is a luxury one-bedroom suite with the latest technology including 5G cloud gaming, buffer-free streaming, a range of immersive AR apps and smart home features – including a smart mirror! The entire hotel runs from OPPO’s Reno smartphone and the 5G network.
And if you are interested, you can apply to stay there (conditions apply) when it is near you. And of course, when it can find a Telstra 5G location.
Michael Tran, Managing Director at OPPO Australia, believes the 5G faster speeds and lower latency will revolutionise smart connectivity, enable unprecedented applications and different user scenarios.
“5G marks a new era of connectivity that is set to revolutionise the way we use our smartphones and devices. Like any new technology, it’s about evolution, and we can expect to see more new applications utilising the power of AR, VR, AI as well as a greater focus on mobile gaming to provide new, exciting innovations.
“We know Aussies are excited for the arrival of 5G, so we’ve built the ultimate live-in experience for consumers to be able to fully immerse themselves in the advancements and innovations that come with the network. We look forward to customers experiencing our innovative 5G smart hotel and see the real-life benefits of the new network.”
OPPO 5G hotel – details
At the centre of the smart hotel is the OPPO Reno 5G, acting as the control centre of the accommodation, powering everything from lighting to entertainment – essentially acting as the ‘brain’ of the hotel. GadgetGuy’s review here gave it 4.9-out-of-5 for its amazing performance and its innovative shark fin pop-up camera and drop-dead gorgeous looks.
From the device, Aussies will be able to:
Through the hotel’s 5G Gaming Suite, guests can experience a high-end gaming computer in the palm of their hand. The Reno 5G uses Steam Link to connect to the hotel’s computer. Users can game locally on the PC, or leverage the 5G smartphone to access a library of games and play from anywhere inside the hotel, using the device as a portable screen.
Access info through a Smart Mirror
The hotel Smart Mirror has everything guests could wish for in a mirror, allowing them to connect their smart devices, watch the latest news, get updates on stocks, read the morning newspaper, watch movies, or get the ideal light for the perfect mirror selfie.
Get things done hands-free
The Hotel’s Reno 5G device has a Google Home Hub, as well as an array of smart home features. Guests can use their voice to control the lighting, play their favourite songs from YouTube Music, ask questions and get visual, immersive answers from Google.
Gain access to OPPO AR Apps
Among these apps are an interactive AR demonstration of the key features of the Reno 5G; and an AR wardrobe, merging the very best in tech with the very best in fashion, allowing guests to preview different outfits in a virtual AR runway. There will also be several additional AR apps to showcase the power of the OPPO Reno 5G and the network.
Access entertainment buffer-free
Download, stream and watch to your heart’s content with 5G. Enjoy Netflix buffer-free or download a whole season of your favourite show while you make a cup of coffee, and watch it on the hotel’s widescreen TV.
