The Chinese handset maker Oppo on Monday announced that its first 5G smartphone has successfully passed 5G CE tests conducted by Sporton International - a global inspection services authority.

The company said in a statement, "An integral step towards the commercial launch of its 5G smartphone in Europe, OPPO's CE certification verifies that the 5G device is compliant with EU requirements essential for entering European markets in areas such as wireless, electromagnetic compatibility, health and safety."

Oppo's 5G smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, paired with the chipmaker's X50 5G modem, integrated RF (radio frequency) transceiver and RF front-end solutions.

Oppo first showcased a 5G prototype of its flagship "Find X" smartphone in China in December 2018. The Oppo Find X was launched last year.
