HTC has signed an agreement with China Mobile to accelerate the development of next-generation 5G devices and mass adoption of VR/AR in China.

HTC was selected as a key partner of the "China Mobile 5G Device Forerunner Initiative". The program aims to launch the first batch of pre-commercial 5G devices for a large-scale trial application showcase, encompassing applicable scenarios for 5G devices, product configuration, technical solutions, testing and verification, and product research and development.

The joint effort will propel the development of newly enabled application models leading up to its 5G network's broad commercialization in 2020, said HTC.

In the near term, HTC will also cooperate with China Mobile to jointly boost the sales of HTC products. Additionally, both companies will jointly develop sales and retail solutions for making VR more accessible nationwide.

With all the innovations we demonstrated around the tight integration of smartphones, PCs and VR/AR devices here at the MWCS, clearly availability of compelling content for VR devices is no longer an issue.
