ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today announced a joint demonstration with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated of 5G-powered cloud gaming on a live 5G network. The demonstration - which utilizes the cloud gaming solutions from Tencent Instant Play on 5G smartphones from OnePlus, Vivo, Xiaomi and ZTE - aims to demonstrate that console-quality mobile gaming experiences are achievable over live 5G networks and show the growth opportunity for the cloud-gaming ecosystem. The demos will use China Telecom's live 5G network, ZTE's 5G NR commercial system infrastructure, and 5G commercial smartphones featuring the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform with the Snapdragon X50 5G Modem with integrated RF transceiver and Qualcomm Technologies' RF Front-End (RFFE) solutions.

Cloud gaming solutions provided by Tencent Instant Play leverage the cloud's capabilities for rendering and processing, while utilizing the high-speed 5G network to send users' commands to the cloud which streams back the rendered frames to local devices. This allows users instant access to graphically demanding games via 5G smartphones without the need to download and install on the devices, delivering smooth "games on demand" experience. All premium 5G smartphones based on the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform include Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming features - providing mobile gamers with a competitive edge for both on-device and cloud-based game experiences.

"We believe that cloud gaming is one of the key trends in the future of the entertainment industry. The arrival of 5G is expected to set off a new revolution in cloud gaming. 5G's high speed and low latency make it an ideal connectivity fabric for cloud gaming which can support improved image quality, provide more fluent interactive experience, and effectively reduce the cost per user of services, thereby bringing high-quality gaming experiences to a wider range of users," said Jian Wang, head of operations, Tencent Instant Play. "We will continue to work on the enhanced cloud gaming experience based on various gaming scenarios and stay focused on innovative experience and high-quality content."

"5G is here. As a global leader in edge-to-edge 5G solutions, ZTE has been working closely with operators and vertical sectors on exploring new 5G business models and use cases to achieve high network performance in those scenarios," said Yanmin Bai, vice president, general manager of TDD & 5G products, ZTE. "The power of these cooperative efforts is successfully displayed when the company and Qualcomm Technologies team up with multiple OEMs on 5G applications. We will continue to work with our partners to contribute our parts to the 5G ecosystem and accelerate the industry's maturity."

"China's 5G era has officially begun, and it was accelerated from the original timeline thanks to the work of the whole mobile ecosystem. With the readiness of 5G commercial networks, China is poised to have a fast large-scale 5G rollout, and within this year Chinese consumers will have access to numerous use cases and enhanced experiences, such as cloud gaming, powered by 5G and the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform," said Pomp Sheng, vice president, sales, Qualcomm Communication Technologies (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. "Qualcomm Technologies is committed to sharing opportunities with Chinese partners, and we are excited to be part of this extensive cooperation across operators, OEMs and content providers for facilitating the improved user mobile experience through 5G innovations."
