Oppo to Make India a Global Export Hub, Aims to Double Local Production

Chinese smartphone maker Oppo which is currently producing close to 50 million units and aims to double the capacity to 100 million units by 2020 will make India a global export hub, Sumit Walia, Vice President, Product and Marketing, Oppo India said on Tuesday.

Doubling the capacity will give employment to nearly 15,000 people, Walia told IANS, as he prepared to launch 5x hybrid zoom-powered Oppo Reno 2 with 20x digital zoom capability in a quad-camera set up.

“We are strategically strengthening our presence in India by investing in talent, manufacturing and research and development. We have an ongoing investment of Rs. 2,200 crore in the Greater Noida manufacturing facility and hope to make India a global export hub for Oppo,” Walia told IANS in a free-wheeling interview.

A power-packed Oppo Reno 2 would feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G Octa-core processor and the advanced VOOC 3.0 flash charge technology.

The power-packed processor will have a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) for better performance.

“VOOC 3.0 has been built at Oppo’s Hyderabad R&D centre that charges the smartphone more than 50 percent in less than 30 minutes. We have also introduced the Ultra dark mode and Ultra steady video mode in the device,” informed Walia.
