Oppo aims to make India its global export hub. The Chinese smartphone maker is currently producing close to 50 million units in India. Going forward, it plans to double the capacity to 100 million units by 2020. Doubling the capacity will give employment to nearly 15,000 people, Sumit Walia, Vice President, Product and Marketing, Oppo India told IANS. In the meantime, the company is gearing up to launch the much-rumored Oppo Reno 2 in the country. Also Read - Oppo, OnePlus, Huawei rank high in customer satisfaction survey by Numr Research

Walia also reveals the company’s plans to diversify its portfolio, and foray into the smart accessories segment. Along with the Reno 2 series, Oppo also plans to launch its ‘Enco’ Bluetooth Headphones. These noise-cancelling wireless headsets will come not only with 15 hours of playback time, but also Type C charging. It reportedly offers a playback time of up to five hours with just 15 minutes of charging.

As per IDC, Oppo held a 9.7 percent market share in the Indian smartphone market in Q2 this year. It registered a healthy growth of 41 percent on the back of popular smartphones in its A-series. These include the A3s, A1K and A5s. Oppo also holds 19.1 percent of the online channel driven by its online exclusive model “K1”.

“We command a very strong presence in the offline market with over 60,000 sales points and over 250 exclusive Oppo stores. There is a plan to open more ‘premium’ retail flagship stores following the one in Hyderabad,” informed Walia. “We will also launch Oppo’s online shopping site for users in India very soon,” he added.
