Coming to the subject, Chen Mingyong said that Oppo is not just a company that makes mobile phones. Smartphones happen to be the most important thing that Oppo’s users need. The company has several other departments like AI, R&D, IoT, and more. The founder also said that the arrival of 5G will bring the Internet of Things even closer to reality than before. 5G will act as the interconnection between AI, big data, and cloud computing to be at the forefront of innovation.
