OPPO announced to release of a new flagship smartphone 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 that will adopt the latest Snapdragon platform. 

OPPO made the announcement at the Snapdragon Tech Summit 2021.

Meanwhile, OPPO will continue to collaborate with Qualcomm Technologies in accelerating the development of 5G and exploring the future of smartphone innovations.

OPPO Vice President of Overseas Sales, Scott Zhang said OPPO maintains close ties with Qualcomm Technologies and they have brought several 5G smartphones powered by the Snapdragon platform to the markets in 2021. 

He also said they were pleased with the introduction of the new Snapdragon 8 Mobile Platform that is expected to bring with it immense improvements.

“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 series 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.”

Over the years, 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 Series not only improves the overall display performance but also provides the Colour Vision Enhancement function for people with a colour deficiency; thus, bringing breathtaking graphics to users around the world.

Its popularity has been rapidly gaining momentum around the world since the commercialisation of the 5G network. 

OPPO continues to collaborate with Qualcomm Technologies and other industry collaborators as the world's fourth-largest smartphone brand, 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 the 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, OPPO will continue to adhere to being permissive, believing in reciprocity, and creating win-win situations. 

The company 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.
