Just recently, Samsung confirmed that it is going to hold a new launch conference on June 22nd, 2021, and the slogan for this event is “Samsung Networks: Redefined”. Most probably, the company will introduce 5G technology, terminals, or its vision for 6G.

Aside from this, new information has appeared online from Germany that a local carrier Deutsche Telekom has finally completed the world’s first 5G Voice over New Radio (VoNR) call in partnership with Samsung, Xiaomi, Ericsson, and Nokia.

According to the info shared by Deutsche Telekon, it has used Samsung and Xiaomi’s mobile terminals including Qualcomm’s test platform. Although this new technology doesn’t need to utilize 4G and other networks for voice calls, it directly uses 5G SA (stand-alone) networks for VoNR protocol calls.

German carrier said that the call was made over a 5G Standalone (SA) network set up at Deutsche Telekom’s lab in Warsaw, Poland. In contrast, this network setup included a 5G Core from Ericsson and IP Multimedia Subsystem from Nokia.

The call was completed using 5G smartphone shape test equipment driven by Samsung Galaxy S21 5G, Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G, and Snapdragon 888 5G modem-RF system, which is supported by Snapdragon 780G and the latest Snapdragon 888 5G system-on-chip.
