On the occasion of the Spring Festival in 2019, Qualcomm China once again launched a special feature of the “New Year’s Eve”, a one-on-one interview with senior mobile phone manufacturers in China, reviewing their achievements in the past year and planning for the future. On January 29th, Qualcomm China officially released the text interview of OPPO CEO, Chen Mingyong. In the interview, Chen Mingyong talked about OPPO’s future plans for 5G and smart terminals other than smartphones.
In the interview, Chen Mingyong said that “the 5G era is not just about the Internet of Things (IoT), but also the integration of all smart devices.” He believes that 5G will be deeply integrated with technologies such as AI and AR, which will lead to new hardware, new connections, and new services. He also revealed that for the 5G+ era, mobile phones will remain the core and hub of all things. OPPO will continue to deepen the core business of mobile phones, and will soon launch new smartphones equipped with the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform.
When asked if he would enter the smart terminal or smart home field outside of mobile phones, Chen Mingyong said that OPPO is actively building an open IoT platform to accelerate the development of AI+IoT technology. The emerging mobile terminal division established at the beginning of OPPO is a new entry point for exploring the 5G+ era. ” We will be the first to target smart watches and smart headphones.”
