Oppo Takes 4th Place in Global Smartphone Sales

Sure you may not have heard of them but it won’t be too long before you SHOULD have heard of them. IDC, who track Global smartphone sales have released their reports for Quarter 1 of 2017 and Oppo have come in 4th. Oppo are world leaders when it comes to home media, especially when it comes to Blu-ray players but the Chinese giant has had a very strong entry into the Western smartphone market after successfully testing their wares in Asia.

n its report, IDC said: “OPPO’s mid-range, camera-focused R9s was a crucial model in China that helped it to see strong shipments in the market. OPPO’s growth has in fact been stronger outside of China with nearly a quarter of shipments from international markets. In the rest of Asia and to a smaller degree in the Middle East and Africa regions, its strong retail presence has helped it to grow further in its business. It has been aggressive in both above-the-line and below-the-line activities in India, and stepped up with its after-sales service efforts in several Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia by increasing its number of service centers.”
