SINGAPORE, 1 December 2021 — OPPO, at the Snapdragon Tech Summit 2021 today, has announced an upcoming new flagship smartphone that will be powered by the new premium Snapdragon® 8 Gen 1 Mobile Platform in the first quarter of 2022. This makes it one of the first companies slated to adopt the latest Snapdragon platform. OPPO will also further its continued collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies in accelerating the development of 5G and exploring the future of smartphone innovations.
Scott Zhang, OPPO Vice President of Overseas Sales, said, “OPPO maintains close ties with Qualcomm Technologies, and we have brought several 5G smartphones powered by flagship Snapdragon mobile platforms to the market this year, including the Find X3 Pro and Reno6 series. It is our pleasure to witness the launch of a new generation of Snapdragon 8 Mobile Platform. We believe it will bring immense improvements and powerful performance on the next generation of flagship smartphones.”
OPPO has always been committed to research and development from a more human-centric perspective, considering that its brand mission is “Technology for mankind, kindness for the world.” For example, OPPO's proprietary Full-Path Colour Management System on Find X3 Pro not only improves the overall display performance, but also provides the Colour Vision Enhancement function for people with colour deficiency; thus, bringing breathtaking graphics to users around the world.
Since the commercialisation of 5G network, its popularity has been rapidly gaining momentum around the world. OPPO, as the world's fourth-largest smartphone brand, continues to collaborate with Qualcomm Technologies and other industry collaborators to promote the construction of 5G SA network and accelerate the commercialisation of 5G across the globe. Specifically, OPPO was the first company to use a Snapdragon mobile platform to commercialise SA network in Europe in April 2021. As of today, OPPO has partnered with more than 80 major mobile network operators worldwide, with more than 40 of them joining OPPO to deliver 5G services. These joint initiatives have ushered in significant business development in regional markets such as Europe, Latin America, and South Africa. The success in regional 5G deployments would not have been possible without the collaboration with leading tech partners such as Qualcomm Technologies.
Looking into the future, believing reciprocity to be the basis of creating win-win situations, OPPO will collaborate with more industry-leaders including Qualcomm Technologies, and actively explore more valuable cutting-edge technologies and applications to provide better products and experiences for global users.
