OPPO Electronics Corp. is an electronics manufacturer based in Guangdong, China. Known for its smartphones, the company also makes MP3 players, portable media players, LCD-TVs, and DVD/Blu-ray players. It was founded in 2004. The company is also a smartphone maker. It has launched a whole range of Android powered smartphones.
Oppo has long neglected the premium segment of the smartphone market in India. The Oppo Find X2 Pro (First look) arrived in 2020 and we haven't had any other Find series phones until now. The Oppo Find N2 Flip made its global debut in February, and just a month later Oppo has launched it in India. The Find N2 Flip goes up against the only other vertically folding smartphones in India, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 and its predecessors, which up until now had gone unchallenged.
Oppo's range of true wireless earphones is quite possibly among the most impressive in the budget and mid-range price segments. The brand has a few products that are widely considered best-in-class, thanks to strong focus on design and the value-for-money proposition. Despite the attention typically going towards products from brands such as OnePlus, Realme, and JBL, I would consider Oppo as the brand with perhaps the strongest and most capable product range — at least when it comes to the affordable segment for this form factor.
Despite being the most expensive audio product in the brand's lineup, the OnePlus Buds Pro is priced quite competitively, compared to flagship true wireless earphones from brands such as Apple, Samsung, and Sony. This has helped set it apart as a value-for-money option that doesn't particularly skimp on much. Now, well over a year after the launch of the first OnePlus Buds Pro comes its successor. The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 brings small improvements, but sticks to the positioning that made the original an easy-to-recommend true wireless headset.
Oppo's Reno 8 Pro 5G is the company's most expensive Reno smartphone in India, yet. Priced at Rs 45,999, it surely looks the part and makes a good first impression, but a quick glance through its specifications and everything appears quite mid-range. Is the Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G all about looks or does it pack enough punch with its overall performance and cameras that could warrant its high asking price?
