OPPO invests USD 7 billion for R&D

Its founder and chief executive officer Tony Chen said the Chinese tech giant was not solely making its mark in the global smartphone market, but was also targeting to make a name in the era of intelligent connectivity.

The multi-billion dollar investment, Chen noted, would finance the group's research and development (R&D) to develop core technologies in  hardware, software, and system in addition to 5G/6G, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, big data, and other frontier technologies.

As the adoption of 5G and AI ramp up, intelligent connectivity is increasingly within reach. We believe the concept of connection is just the foundation, whereas the integration and convergence of things will be the future. The concept of intelligent connectivity consists of four key parts, including the convergence of technology and service, the convergence of organization, the convergence of culture, and the convergence of technology, arts, and humanities, Chen said during OPPO Inno Day 2019 in Shenzhen. 

According to Levin Liu, OPPO vice president and head of research institute, the group hopes to provide personalized 5G experiences. 

Liu said OPPO is set to introduce smartwatches, smart wireless headphones, and 5G CPE in the first quarter of next year.
