Coming to the subject, Chen Mingyong said that Oppo is not just a company that makes mobile phones.

The Oppo Inno Day event also served as a platform for industry experts, partners and key opinion leaders to elaborate on the future of technology. Mingyong said that Oppo IoT's strategy is to focus on core entrances and build an open ecology, which means that Oppo only makes core entrances that are used frequently.

Addressing the event, Oppo Vice-President and Head of Oppo Research Institute Levin Liu said, "In the face of the new 5G era, Oppo will head towards Tech Innovation 2.0. which will be driven by "frontier technology" and value for user".

Other Chinese tech giants like Huawei and Xiaomi have an enviable array of gadgets and services that all work in sync with one another, and this is clearly something Oppo hopes to emulate with its efforts over the next few years.

"This year and in the next three years we have invested 50 billion yuan in the research and development team", said Tony, Oppo founder, and CEO, when presenting the Oppo 5G projection at the Oppo Inno Day.

OPPO said that it would launch its AR Glass sometime in the first quarter of next year.

Oppo has just kicked off its global INNO Day 2019 Conference in Shenzhen, China, early this morning. These are only a prototype, so the final product may look a bit different. We also saw a demo of the company's upcoming AR glasses, which are reminiscent of Microsoft's Holo Lens (but hopefully more useful). Oppo has placed two buttons in green color on the side of the AR Glasses. It's also now developing smart wireless earbuds and smartwatches to fit in with the growing Oppo ecosystem.

Further details haven't yet been announced but Oppo did say that more information will be dropping in Q1 2020 - we anticipate most likely around the time of CES - the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Other possible teasers for future products included smart displays and robots, though nothing official has yet been confirmed.
