Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo announced the creation of an Alliance aimed at simplifying and increasing the speed of file transfer between smartphones of different manufacturers. It is expected that the universal technology, which does not depend on the brand of the device and the type of firmware, will debut this year.
The result of the collaboration of the three brands will be the ability to transfer files between smartphones at speeds up to 20 Mbit/s. The organization of such communication does not require any third-party application and manual creation of an access point. In fact, the new technology will become an alternative to the AirDrop function used by Apple in its smartphones for many years. Now every manufacturer of Android-smartphones uses its own method of file transfer — the transition to a single standard in the future will be a universal solution for the whole platform.
All three companies offer to join the Alliance and other manufacturers. According to rumors, the list of brands that can make the company Xiaomi, Vivo and OPPO, includes Huawei and HONOR, which already has its own development called Huawei Share OneHop to send multimedia files to laptops line Matebook.
The new Alliance plans to test cross-brand file transfer before the end of August 2019.
