OPPO finally introduced its long-awaited Find X2 series today (March 6, 2020). However, it also had a "one more thing" moment: a new mobile-broadband device that could bring 5G speeds to the home or office. It is based on the Snapdragon X55 modem, and can deliver both mmWave and sub-6GHz reception.

OPPO has just launched the Find X2 series via an online-only event. However, that was not all: the OEM also has a new kind of mobile broadband modem to be made available soon. It is called the 5G CPE Omni, and is rated for small business or residential settings.

Unlike Huawei's similar new product, this CPE has access to Qualcomm technology, meaning it can use the X55 modem rather than an in-house solution. OPPO has incorporated it into a device that has 2 kinds of antennas.

The first of these, dubbed "O-Motion", handles the mmWave variety of 5G, and also supports 2X MIMO. However, should this reception fail or falter, the O-Reserve 4X MIMO antenna steps in with its sub-6GHz frequency and maximal 6.7dBi gain.

OPPO asserts that they work in harmony to deliver consistent 5G speeds for all connected users. The 5G CPE Omni also supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth LE, as well as ZigBee 3.0 so as to maintain smart-home or IoT connections.

The OEM did not cover pricing or availability information for this new CPE at its latest show; however, we now know it will come in black or white finishes and have an appealing, modern tower form-factor.
