Chinese consumer electronics and mobile communications company Oppo has set up what it calls a Power and Performance Lab at at its Hyderabad R&D centre in India as part of what are described as plans to building an entire product development ecosystem from India.
The lab seeks to develop ways to make Oppo devices (the brand is a major smartphone name in India) more energy-efficient in current use cases by working with real-life scenarios. The hope is that even with heavy usages like gaming, photography, video calling and streaming, Oppo can drive innovations that will allow smoother performance and longer battery life.
India’s Economic Times reports that the new lab's engineers will work on other performance-related aspects including improving device heating. It quotes Tasleem Arif, VP, and R&D head, Oppo India, who says: “The set-up of the Power and Performance Lab marks the third important development towards realizing our dream of building an entire product development ecosystem from India.”
Oppo’s R&D centre at Hyderabad also houses the brand’s 5G Innovation Lab and Camera Innovation Lab, which launched in the last two years. The centre has a team of over 450 members.
Oppo’s main product lines include smartphones, smart devices, audio devices, power banks and other electronic products.
