I have talked a bit about the OPPO company in my latest articles. But most of the users see OPPO as a startup company in smartphones market. Video of the OPPO smartphones evolution below will show you how early it started to manufacture its first devices with the early versions of Android OS at that time. For today the evolution of OPPO phones spans the years from 2012 to 2020. The question often arises: If OPPO smartphones evolution spans 8 years of technological development, then why haven’t I seen those phones in supermarkets or telecommunication showrooms right from the start? The answer is quite simple: OPPO had to take their time to grow and gain a foothold in primary markets first by delivering quite exclusive and promising products. So OPPO could later be globally recognized as a reliable and exclusive brand.
If you want to know which flagship models are leading and dictating the following technological trends to date, keep your eye on the Chinese and Indian markets. These are the markets where OPPO has started to make their way.
The question is, what is India here for? The fact is that the Indian market is still technologically lagging behind. This means there’s plenty of possibilities to make an influence in a rapidly growing economy. As a result, even giants like Samsung, Huawei, or Apple are releasing a separate smartphone line targeted to the Indian market. These devices usually come with expanded OS functionality or more advanced specifications. As an example, a more powerful or completely different processor, more RAM, and internal memory. While OPPO was a growing company, it has been limited to sales and development in the Chinese and Indian markets, with a small share of exports to other countries. As OPPO models become more and more popular and securely established themselves among the flagships, the company decided to ship their phones globally.
So, before we move on to 2021, let’s look at the path OPPO has taken to enjoy the view from the heights to this day. I have no doubt that you will discover models of similar design, which were globally sold by LG and Sony companies at that time.
