Smart device maker Oppo India is in the process of filing 80 patents and will increase focus on developing the 5G device ecosystem in 2021, a senior company official said Monday.
Tasleem Arif, vice president of OPPO India and head of research and development, said the establishment of a 5G lab in the country has reduced the company’s reliance on the company’s headquarters and other centers of smart devices. “In India’s R&D center, we not only want to be the first to promote 5G, but we are also contributing a lot to IPR. We have filed over 200 IP (intellectual property). In that 60%, about 120, it is already has been archived and 40%, about 80, is being processed. All of this has mostly happened in the last one and a half years, “Arif said on the sidelines of the launch of the Reno5 Pro 5G and Enco X wireless earphones.
The Reno5 Pro 5G and Enco X wireless earbuds will start selling in India from January 22 through the major retailers of the company and the Flipkart e-commerce platform for Rs 35,990 and Rs 9,990 respectively.
“For 2021, our main focus will be IoT and 5G because we believe that once 5G is introduced, interaction within devices will also increase. IoT will also play a key role. In that direction we are launching Enco X” , Arif said.
He said research and development in India has contributed to 5G, a seamless download experience, and joint development of AI-powered video capabilities with the company’s headquarters in China.
“Reno Pro5 delivers the industry’s first AI highlight video. This is the first time the AI highlight video will be introduced in a smartphone. Since we have our own setup, whatever research is required on 5G, we’ll do it ourselves. Once 5G arrives, there will be challenges around battery, video experience. In India, we do the stability, video experience and new product testing ourselves, “Arif said. In OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G, the company has provided a 4350mAh battery and a flash charging feature which claims it can charge the device up to 100% in 30 minutes and provide up to four hours of video playback with 5 minutes of charging.
Arif said huge investments are underway for the R&D center in India and will be made as the company grows.
According to IDC, OPPO is in third position with record growth of 40.2% year-over-year, as of October 2020. According to Oppo, the Reno series recorded growth of more than 50% in the period July-September 2020 in previous quarter.
