If you are thinking of buying a full proof smartphone in the near future, one of the questions is whether the phone will support the 5G SA network. At the moment, Samsung S21 series (3 models) is supposedly the only models that are provisioned and will work in Singapore. XIaomi Mi 11 is probably another model that will work on Singtel 5G SA.
Other than Samsung and Xiaomi, OPPO seems to be ready to support the 5G SA network. THe 5G SA network seems to support it out of the box according to OPPO.
We also checked with OPPO SG, the other model that will work would be the OPPO Find X3 Pro in Q4, 2021.
Which 5G SA network does it support?
The Reno6 Pro 5G supports 5G SA from three telcos, namely Singtel, StarHub, and M1.
Anyway, which other 5G oppo phones will eventually get upgraded to support 5G SA?
The OPPO Find X3 Pro will support 5G SA in Q4. We are currently at the testing stage with the 5G SA Network for other OPPO models. At OPPO, our products undergo rigorous testing to ensure compatibility across all local 5G networks. We will be sure to keep you posted when the testing has concluded, and results have been finalised.
** Some of the current brands/models that support 5G NSA might be upgraded to support 5G SA through firmware upgrade.
