Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo develop a file transfer system like Apple AirDrop

By  Adan Flannigan 2019-08-19 555 0

Chinese smartphone manufacturers Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo have announced a protocol that will enable high-speed file transfer between brands. Thanks to this protocol, the phones produced by the three brands can easily transfer files up to 20 MB per second without the need for any third party applications.

A transfer syetem like AirDrop

AirDrop is a file transfer system that is highly preferred by Apple users for its ease of use. While such file transfer within the Apple ecosystem was extremely easy, it was almost impossible to make such a transfer between Android smartphones.

Since most Android phone manufacturers make their own additions to Android, the phones work differently. In order for a file transfer system to be implemented in this way, a protocol like Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo did.

Transmit speed 20MB/ seconds

Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo phones with the new file transfer system; perform the transfer of files such as photos, videos, songs and documents at a rate of 20 MB per second, in a stable and cost-effective manner

On the Android side, we can obviously use NFC - Android Beam - or some in-house solutions like Huawei Share, but they often suffer from the comparison with AirDrop. That's why three big Chinese teams, Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo, have joined forces to create an alternative.

Compatible with MIUI, ColorOS, FuntouchOS

This is revealed by a publication of Xiaomi's official account on the WeChat application, relayed by The Verge. This alternative to AirDrop will work on the respective Android interfaces of the three brands: MIUI, ColorOS and FuntouchOS. It is also specified that the protocol in question will use Bluetooth for pairing and will reach speeds of 20 MB/s. The transfers will therefore probably be made via a Wi-Fi connection.



For now, Huawei is using a media transfer system called 'Huawei Share OneHop'. It is thought that all Android users will be able to send files to each other at very high speeds and easily if a similar system comes to Android ecosystem which can transfer files between smartphones and Matebook series.

The new file transfer, designed by Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo, is expected to switch to the open beta at the end of August.

Soon the beta

A beta version of this AirDrop with Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo will be released by the end of the month. The trio of manufacturers also invites other market players to adopt their solution to give it even more weight.
